Bean boots are often worn by girls at Middlesex School in Concord, MA. They often are worn so that one can convey a "chill" persona. The older they look the better. Your grandpa probably has them.
Hey Alden! Cute bean boots where did you get them?
Boots made of rubber and leather. They originated as hiking boots in Maine. Have become stylish in a preppy
way. Commonly worn by rich W.A.S.P
people in the north east united states and also in the south. To be seen wearing them is sort of an "old money
" statement, as they can be seen worn around the boarding schools (Exeter, Andover, St. Pauls) and private colleges of new england, (ie. Williams
, Trinity College
) in the colder or muddier parts of the year.
"What kind of boots are those?"
"Huh, I've never seen them before."
"Yeah, I would imagine you haven't, you're not rich, your not a WASP, your not from new england, and you've probably never heard of the NESCAC."
A loyal companion. Can be handed down from one generation to the next. A pair of boots that can go through hell for you and come back more than fine. Stylish and practical have a healthy marriage and can be rocked with jeans and khakis at college or taken to Adirondacks for some solid hiking. Seem to have a somewhat prep feel these days but honestly anyone can rock them
"Hey are those Bean boots?!"
" Hell yea they used to be my dad's. Good timing too seeing as their becoming popular now"
