LLBean shoe brand celebrates its centenary

American brand LLBean celebrates 100 years since its founder - Maine hunter Leon Leonwood Bean - came up with a completely unique pair of shoes that combine the style and comfort of familiar leather shoes, while keeping your feet warm and dry. Bean's shoes were made of rubber at the bottom and leather at the top. When Bean started their serial production, they very quickly received the popular nickname duck boots (duck boots).

Today LL Bean is a huge corporation with an annual turnover of 1,5 billion dollars.

In honor of the round date, the heirs of Leon Lenwood ordered the Florida company Echo Artz an advertising show car Bootmobile - a huge, 747-size, boot that can travel on the roads of the United States and promote the company's products, which today include not only shoes, but also a wide variety of types of tourist equipment and clothing for hiking all year round. Florida tuners installed a 250-meter-high sculpture on a Ford F-4 Super Duty Diesel truck, which was first formed from foam and then reinforced with fiberglass. Thus, the Bootmobile has turned out - a show car that advertises not only LLBean footwear, but also a healthy lifestyle, in which people prefer not to sit out all day in offices and cars, but walk as much as possible. The site carsguru.net writes about this.
