the lounger boot

a few years ago, my buddy jay at red clay soul started a campaign for l.l. bean to bring back the lounger boot.  they listened and are now offering two versions: 1) the shearling lounger with no buckle (not pictured) and 2) the l.l. bean signature maine hunting lounger that you see above.  the shearling lounger is a 7 inch pull on boot that retails for $169.  the maine hunting lounger (again above) is a 9 inch pull on boot with no shearling lining and an added buckle.  it retails for $199.  i love the look of the maine hunting lounger, but i do not understand the price point.  $199 seems a bit excessive for a bean boot.  am i wrong about this?  what am i missing?  would you pay $199 for this boot?  i love you l.l. bean, but i think i’ll stick with my 8 inch bean boots and rubber mocs that together cost $20 less than this boot.

    $200 is a lot but I bought a pair anyway. I could see these selling out and disappearing from the scene again. I also have a pair of 8″ lace-ups that I love but have found myself wearing the loungers more often. They’re considerably easier to get in and out of. I’ve also found that an extra pair of nice-looking boots is indispensable. When one pair is muddy or wet you can wear the other pair.
