L.L. Bean, Inc. Unveils L.L.Bean Bootmobile
Jan 17 12
L.L. Bean, Inc. debuted the "L.L.Bean Bootmobile" a larger-than-life embodiment of its most iconic product. The 13-foot high and 20-foot long vehicle was revealed to employees at the Brunswick, ME manufacturing facility where popular Bean boots are made, stopping at the L.L.Bean flagship store in Freeport before traveling to New York City. The Bootmobile is modeled after L.L.Bean's first product, the Maine Hunting Shoe. Having returned from a hunting trip with cold, wet feet, he had a revolutionary idea for a boot design. This innovative "Bean Boot" changed outdoor footwear forever and began one of the most successful family-run businesses in the country. The success of the company is due in part to L.L.Bean's legendary quality guarantee, which began with L.L.'s first product. Of the first 100 boots he created, 92 were defective and he refunded each customer their money. From there, he went back to the drawing board and re-engineered his boot, which has since stood the test of time and become the company's most popular product. facts about the Bootmobile are: If the Bootmobile was an actual boot, it would be size 747; The Bootmobile is 13' tall, 20' 6" long and 7' 6" wide; The Bootmobile generates 0% CO2 emissions thanks to a diesel engine with urea tank and particulate filter; If an actual person were to wear the Bootmobile, the person would be 143' tall - 32' taller than the Statue of Liberty; The Bootmobile laces are made of 12 strand braided mooring rope, capable of towing 106,000 lbs; The driver enters and exits through the heel; A camera provides visibility for the rear and top of the Bootmobile.
