Muck Boots and The Fabulous Beekman Boys Collaborate on Limited Edition Boot
April 30, 2014
Honeywell’s The Original Muck Boot Company™ introduced the brand’s first fashion collaboration with The Fabulous Beekman Boys. Inspired by the growing farm-to-table movement, Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell transplanted themselves from New York City to a farm in upstate New York, creating the Beekman 1802 lifestyle brand, and sharing their experiment of living better lives, season by season, neighbor by neighbor. The new MUCK B 1802 boot is a perfect pairing of both the Beekman 1802 and Muck Boot brands – it’s designed for those seeking style with substance.
The Muck B 1802 boots will be offered in black with red trim and black with grey trim on the Beekman 1802 mercantile and on www.muckbootcompany.com. The 100 percent waterproof boot will feature Muck’s XpressCool liner, which keeps feet cool in warm weather. A lightweight EVA outsole with rubber pods provide optimal traction and support with comfort and flexibility.
“Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell have built a brand considered by Epicurious to be ‘the next Martha Stewart’ and one that exemplifies the growing trend that is modern farming,” said Sean O’Brien, global director of footwear for The Original Muck Boot Company. “This growing movement requires durable, comfortable farm footwear, and, with this collaboration, The Beekman Boys have helped us deliver a practical product with a fashionable twist.”
