Women's Duck Boots
History of Duck Boots
To better understand women’s duck boots let’s discuss how the footwear style started. Leon Leonwood Bean, the founder of L.L. Bean, sold the first duck boots in 1911. He was fed up with wet feet and found farmers wearing rubber boots in the fields to keep their feet dry. Whereas, Mr. Bean for most of his life worked hard to come up with new ideas to solve problems. Subsequently, after sewing the underside of a rubber boot to the top of a work boot, the first Duck Boot was born.
The Duck Boot was originally called the Maine hiking shoe. It has quietly been the utilitarian mainstay of the LL Bean product line for the past 100 years. In the early 2000s, this silent sale changed.
On this occasion, students of elite preparatory schools began to choose bean shoes as required items for their wardrobes. A cultural tide started and is still going strong. Obviously, the success of women’s duck boots prompted other brands, who noticed the frenzy of the duck boots and jumped on deck.
But don’t be fooled by followers. Quality is not cheap. Other brands may last a year, but high-quality brands like L.L. Bean, expect shoes to last generations. L.L. Bean once said, “I don’t consider a sale complete until the goods are worn out and the customer is still satisfied.”

As a leading name in sailing and wet-weather footwear, it made perfect sense to develop her own offspring of the Bean boot. After all, Sperry has had experience and knowledge of boat shoes for generations, so wet conditions are something of an off-road advantage for the brand. Step into the saltwater duck boots.
