LLBean shoe brand celebrates its centenary

The American brand LLBean celebrates the 100 anniversary of the day when its founder, a hunter from Maine, Leon Leonwood Bean, came up with a completely unique pair of shoes that combines the style and comfort of ordinary leather shoes, but keeps your feet warm and dry. The boots invented by Bin in the lower part were made of rubber, and in the upper part made of leather. When Bean started their serial production, they very quickly got 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-sized boot that can move on US roads and promote the company's products, which now include not only shoes, but also a wide variety of types of camping equipment and hiking clothes 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, it turned out Bootmobile - a show car that advertises not only LLBean shoes, but also a healthy lifestyle, in which people prefer not to spend days in offices and cars, but walk as much as possible. About this writes the site carsguru.net.
