The Montreal brand Sorel was already a trend in the 80's with it's winter boots using the rubber duck shape. Since them many people have copied the style and made his own interpretation. The most recent trend as come from the brands mixing it up with a runner sole. We are witnessing the movement of Hybrids in a beautiful way. Good old classic are coming back with a different perspective and designers are hungry to show their take on the legends.
The guys from Gourmet did it in a nice way with a twist on the LL.BEAN classic last year and came back this year with the Duck boot, an update that is stronger. In the same thinking you'll find the version by greedy genius.
Keep it simple but give it another life.
