The summer before I started my first year at Georgetown, my dad informed me that I would definitely need a pair of duck boots. I distinctly remember laughing (straight up laughing…) when he suggested the shoes. Nope, I would never wear them. Ever.
Nevertheless, he bought me a pair for my birthday (aka the first week of school)… even though I told him I would never wear them. Of course, the minute the weather turned cooler, everyone on campus started pulling theirs out of their closets. I still scoffed at the idea. The boots are undeniably the strangest looking things ever. But, within a week or two of cold and soggy feet… I was a convert. I started off just wearing down to the boathouse for practices, but slowly wore them to class from time to time.
Do you have Bean Boots? What size/color do you have? How do you wear yours?
