These L.L.Bean Boots Merge Form and Function

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked Philly editor Julie Davis.

Women's Shearling Lined Bean Boots, $199 at L.L.Bean

I don't have to reach for my L.L.Bean winter boots too often, but when a snowstorm hits, they're the most invaluable member of my shoe line-up. They're a happy alternative to clunky pack boots, which, for me, would be overkill; I'm only trekking from my front door to the car, after all. For snow boots, they're pretty cute, too, and the relatively slim profile makes them wearable for driving and running errands.

Did I mention they're waterproof and lined with real shearling? You could complain that they almost keep your feet too warm, but hey, it's better than having icicles for toes.
