The original duck boot was invented and released by L.L. Bean way back in 1912. Unfortunately, not many released since have done anything all that interesting or innovative with the classic winter footwear. Thankfully, the opposite is true for the Huckberry-exclusive Duck Boot II, which still bears all of the stylistic hallmarks of its more traditional siblings but charges ahead of the pack in regards to modern materials and features.
As you can tell at a glance, especially in the brown colorway, this boot looks exactly like a classic duck boot should — marked by its full-grain leather uppers and a durable rubberized rand. However, a closer examination reveals some exceptional modernized updates. That includes things like an ultralight construction (which serves to make this 100% waterproof winter boot feel more like a pair of sneakers on your feet), Vibram outsole for reliable traction in all conditions, cushy EVA foam midsole, and breathable moisture-wicking membrane for all-day comfort. The end result is a stylish, vintage-inspired, all-weather pair of boots made with contemporary sensibilities and state-of-the-art technologies and features built right in.
