L.L. Bean’s iconic heritage duck boots are by far the best shoes to wear in the rain or snow — even for fashion lovers. But last year they sold out by December (with back orders arriving very belatedly in April). And already this year we’re facing similar shortages. If you’re already hoarding winter essentials like some of us, you might want to consider a Bean alternative. Luckily, the good people at Polyvore gave us statistics on the best-selling waterproof boot alternatives, so you can invest in keeping your feet dry before it’s too late.
