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."
