I cannot hold this thought in any longer, I must vent it. I have for some time had this growing fear that L.L. Bean Boots will be bastardized, much like we have seen done to Hunter boots. Wedge heeled wellies, are you f*c*i*g kidding me? Now, luckily, I have full faith in the powers that be at L.L. Bean that they will not let this happen on their end.

For some of the twists put on other prep classics by both designers and individuals have been borderline offensive to many preps. When you put on a pair of Bean boots you are putting on a piece of history, something of legend. Wear them proudly and respect them.
Keep up the good fight,
