Meant for cold and wet Maine weather, L.L. Bean's duck boots aren't just the brand's signature product, but it's also the subject of a giant sculpture out front of the brand's Freeport, Maine factory store. The boot, known for a brown leather upper, black rubber midsole, and chain-patterned sole make it one of the hardiest boots available—and truly waterproof. While the boot is over 100 years old (and still in production under L.L. Bean's watch in Maine), it's just as relevant today, with online orders reminding buyers that the boot is in “limited supply.” Hard to beat what's literally a handmade-American classic.
