....LL Bean "Bean Boots" with Thinsulate....
Could've saved you some time old pal. L.L.Bean is hq'd about 15 minutes from me and they have a substantial compound of stores up there. I don't know if you called the ones in Freeport, but it would be easy to call one store and miss the other 5 right there, all of which have little enclaves of things like Bean boots hidden around.
Anyway, glad you got em! Probably don't need to fill you in on their legend CS (and everything ships free on the website, no minimum). Literally for any reason whatsoever you can return or exchange those boots, forever.
Man, I appreciate it and truthfully, I was holding back on a LF'er net call. I did start calling stores in cities where I had solid contacts, in case shipping was a non-starter.
Funny tip...I started each call with, "I know it's crazy there, I know you're busy, but I'm a horrible husband and I need your help..." Worked like a charm.
