The original L.L.Bean Boot was designed to help people enjoy the outdoors – and our larger-than-life mobile replica was too. The Bootmobile has covered more than 160,000 miles, appeared at hundreds of events in 14 states and dozen college campuses, and made tracks to every L.L.Bean store.
Share the fun with our expert guides as they hit the road for a full schedule of outdoor activities, demonstrations and special events.
The Bootmobile is continuing the celebration of our first store in Michigan by setting foot at the 19th annual Arts, Beats & Eats in Royal Oak, MI. Just a few minutes from our new store, our rolling icon will be there with games, giveaways and a chance to win a $300 L.L.Bean gift card.
The Bootmobile will close out summer by celebrating all things seafood at the 26th annual Hampton Beach Seafood Festival. Find us near the beach with games, giveaways and chances to win L.L.Bean gear.
We're setting foot at Boston University for the annual involvement fair. Stop by the Bootmobile for games, giveaways and student discounts to get ready for the school season.
The Bootmobile will be stopping by one of the largest festivals in Massachusetts during Maine Day at The Big E. Stop by for a photo of our rolling icon and look for it during the annual Maine Day Parade.
We’ll be joining the fun at College Day, a one-day lifestyle event that welcomes college students from across Boston and New England back to school. Come see the Bootmobile at Boston’s iconic Fenway Park, the oldest and most historic ballpark in the country. Stop by for prizes, giveaways and L.L.Bean contests.
The original Bootmobile was so popular, it needed a sidekick. So, we built a second. It's a bit smaller, lighter and greener—the engine is biodiesel compatible. An interactive entertainment system adds to the fun. Now we have a fleet of big feet, revving up for a season of special events near and far.

An interview with Bootmobile Driver, L.L.Bean ambassador, and outdoorsman Eddie Flaherty
Known to his coworkers as “Eddie of the Woods,” Eddie Flaherty is more than just gifted at driving the 13-foot Bootmobile. This Registered Maine Guide leads whitewater rafting adventures, is an avid fly fisherman, and plans on playing semi-pro football when he's not on the road.
We thought it would be great to catch up with Eddie and learn what it's like behind the wheel.
