The Original L.L.Bean Boot, made in Maine since 1912
The Maine Hunting Shoe was "L.L." Bean's first product, introduced in 1912. Over the years, we've made lots of improvements, but hunters told us they missed the moccasin-like feel that our original boots had in the woods. So we brought it back.
With a moccasin-like sole that lets you feel the forest floor beneath your feet, a taller 12" height for extra coverage and waterproof construction, we carefully considered every detail of these Maine-made boots. As one customer told us, “These boots fit like they have over a 100 years of effort put into the design.”
