Back in 2007, Josh Kilmer Purcell and his husband, Brent Ridge (stars of the reality show The Fabulous Beekman Boys) bought a 19th century farm called Beekman Mansion in bucolic town of Sharon Springs in upstate New York. The couple launched a business, Beekman 1802 selling products derived from the produced grown on the farm.
Brent and Josh to their lifestyle brand one step further by teaming with The Original Muck Boot Company on the footwear company’s first fashion collaboration inspired by the growing farm-to-table movement—Muck B 1802. Known for creating comfortable boots ideal for messy and tough conditions in work, farming, agriculture, outdoor sporting, lawn and garden, and even the most torrential of down pours. The Muck B 1802 boot is the perfect marriage of both brands—combining style and substance.
Only 200 pairs of the limited edition boot will be sold on both the Beekman 1802 website and on footwear company's site. The Muck B 1802 boots come in two styles: black with red trim and black with grey trim. The 100 percent waterproof boot features Muck’s XpressCool liner, which keeps feet cool in warm weather. A lightweight sole with rubber pods provide optimal traction and support with comfort and flexibility. The boot’s suggested retail price is $170.
