KJ and I had a little fb conversation about this newest addition to the LL Bean boot category. There isn't anything new about this classic boot...except that it's in black!! So cool. Now everyone already knows I am such a fan of the shearling lined version of this boot. I've had mine for years and I love them as much today as I did on the day I bought them. Other styles come and go but when those looked dated and so last year, these never seems to age. This version in black could not be more smashing...but what do you do when the Bean boots you own look like new?
