The Original L.L.Bean Boot, made in Maine since 1912
Just as when Leon Leonwood Bean created them in 1912, our boots combine the waterproof protection of rubber-bottom boots with the supple comfort of full-grain leather.
Whoever says “they don’t build things like they used to,” doesn't own these boots. Today, our signature “duck” 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 1912 design.
