L.L. Bean "duck shoes" in the snow. Photograph swiped from pulpitpinstripe.com.
We have more snow falling this morning, with 2"-4" inches expected. And that on top of an already solid snowpack. While I love the stuff as a cross-country/Nordic skier, and we have actually enjoyed a real winter this year, it plays hell with one's plans to wear decent looking leather dress shoes. So, while I had hoped I might be able to wear a pair of vintage tan Florsheim brogues with galoshes today, once again, it will be my trusty pair of L.L. Bean duck shoes with a heavy pair of winter wool knee socks. Sigh. I simply must remember to purchase a pair of the 10" Bean Boots before the approach of winter much later this year before they are sold out again.
