A Guide To His + Hers Bean Boots

I know it’s a little late in the year for bloggers to be talking about Bean Boots, but y’all I just couldn’t go without saying anything…

Bean boots are a must for fall and winter! Read this for sizing tips, brand details, and lots of shopping options for his and hers bean boots.

Just to preface, Bean Boots are not a new thing. I actually remember my dad always wearing his in the winter, and I actually had my own kid’s pair. Unfortunately when I pulled those out of storage they didn’t quite fit anymore. So, I was on the hunt for my very own grown up pair. I ultimately learned my lesson, and won’t be searching for Bean Boots in the middle of winter. They actually sell-out or go on a waiting list in November. Womp, womp.

The terms “Bean Boots” and “Duck Boots” are used synonymously, but really they are weatherproofed boots. I really love this quote from this article stating, “The demand for Bean Boots has cycled up and down during the hundred years we’ve [been] making it. We don’t go out of our way to find those trends, the trends keep coming back to us.” It’s true. I’ve known about Bean Boots forever, especially growing up in a hometown dominated with fishing and hunting. But they’re back, and I couldn’t be more excited. Keep reading if you or your man have been thinking about wanting a pair of your own!

The Brands

Obviously L.L. Bean was the brand who invented the Bean Boot, but they are not the only ones still making them. Well known brands like Sperry, Sorel, and even UGG have made their own versions. Mine you see here are Sperry, but Harrison’s are actually made by London Fog. They were both found at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx and were Christmas presents from my mom. Thanks Mom!

The Sizes & Fitting

Whenever I wear them out I get a lot of questions about sizing and fitting. For the original L.L. Bean Boots, size down a full size. I know, sounds crazy, but just trust me. The brand also offers different heights. Mine were the 8″ boots (similar height to the ones I am wearing here.) They also run in 6″ for you petite gals. For Sperry, size up. I liked being able to wear socks, even bulkier ones for snow and such. For mens, Harrison says that he felt these ran true to size.

    I learned my lesson a few years ago trying to order a new pair of Bean Boots during winter… now I order mine over the summer when I need to replace mine! I have two pairs, one that’s 8″ and the other is 10″, perfect for fall and snow-y winter days!
