Words are from LL Bean themselves :
Our legendary Maine-made Bean Boot – designed by “L.L.” himself in 1912 and keeping feet dry and comfortable ever since. Chances are, you’ll only ever need one pair.
Whoever says “they don’t build things like they used to,” doesn’t own these boots. Today, our signature boots are still sewn right here in Maine – one pair at a time – by expert craftspeople whose technical skills and passion for their work is evident in every pair of boots they make. Warm, dry feet haven’t gone out of style in a hundred years, so we haven’t needed to change L.L.’s innovative design.
