As a present, I bought my husband a pair of made-in-Maine L.L. Bean duck boots a couple of weeks ago. He was so happy with them, I bought a pair for myself as well. They'll go well on days where I'm wearing pants over which my Hunter boots won't fit.
It's been incredibly rainy in Atlanta over the last week, so these really come in handy. Remember, duck boots are rain boots, not snow boots.
