One of the first things I did upon purchasing a farm in central New York State was to snag a pair of Muck Boots from The Original Muck Boot Company. For those not familiar with the brand, Muck Boots (as the name denotes) are the perfect slip on and head out footwear for trudging through mud, dirt, snow, rain and whatever else Mother Nature can dish out to make your feet uncomfortable. They're also the signature footwear that reality stars Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell wore during their two seasons of television's "The Fabulous Beekman Boys."
So it makes sense that, in addition to their growing Beekman 1802
empire of foodstuffs, branded soaps, heirloom seeds, and other farm and country products, the fab duo would team up with The Original Muck Boot Company on their own version of the famous boot. Called the MUCK B 1802, this limited edition footwear delivers what Sean O'Brien from Original Muck calls "a practical product with a fashionable twist."
"It took us seven years of research," write Brent and Josh on their site
, "wearing our muck boots all around the world (literally!), to come up with what we think is the PERFECT pair of boots—made for walking… and everything else!"
Some of the unique features of the Muck B 1802 include a slimmer profile, lighter overall weight - as well as Xpresscool lining so that "your foot never gets hot and sweaty."
