After seeing pretty much everyone wearing some version of these duck boots for the past few months, I finally decided to see what all of the hype was about. Plus, since I grew up with relatively mild weather, I still didn’t really have any good winter boots that I felt comfortable wearing when it was muddy/wet/snowy out. So I took the plunge and ordered a pair from Athleta, knowing I could always return them if needed.
Now, I’ve been wearing these duck boots for about a month now, and they are quickly becoming a closet staple. They are a bit heavy, but super warm and totally insulated and water proof–exactly what I needed.
I’ve been wearing them often, as I did this day, as my “commuter shoe” and then changing into something else once I reach an inside destination I’ll be staying in for awhile. They are a bit pricey, but for such a practical shoe and a shoe I don’t see replacing for a long time to come, totally worth it.
