Can You Believe LL Bean is 100 Years Old?

It seems that since the turn of this latest century every year we find ourselves celebrating the centennial of one American institution after another. This year is no different. In 1911 outdoorsman LL Bean “invented” the Maine Hunting Boot by combining shoe rubbers with 7-1/2″ leather tops to keep his feet dry while hunting. Before long others wanted the boots and in 1912 he sent out his first mailer. The rest is history.

LL Bean is commemorating their 100th anniversary in a big way by producing a line of reproduction products that look like they’ll give you another 100 years of service.
