Kate Middleton's Favorite Boot Brand Just Launched a Collab With L.L.Bean

These aren't your basic Bean boots. The 150-year-old Australian brand, Blundstone, has teamed up with legacy American retailer L.L. Bean to create limited-edition boots that both regulars and royals will be rushing to get their hands on.

Blundstone boots are known for their rugged versatility, particularly in inclement weather. Their recognizable design has been put to the test for a century and a half and is favored by everyone from city-dwelling commuters to the Princess of Wales herself. In fact, Kate Middleton has been photographed wearing Blundstones on several occasions, particularly when the event calls for some outdoor fun. Plus, the plaid elastic gore with matching tread is ideal for trips everywhere, from L.L.Bean's headquarters in Freeport, Maine, to Balmoral Castle in the Scottish countryside.

Check out the Blundstone x L.L.Bean boots below, and in case they sell out super fast, shop an additional assortment of the rugged, royal-worthy style.
