The original L.L.Bean Boot was designed to help people enjoy the outdoors – and our larger-than-life mobile replica was too. It has covered over 160,000 miles, appeared at hundreds of events in 14 states and at a dozen college campuses, and it made tracks to every L.L.Bean store in the country.
Share the fun with our expert guides as they hit the road for a full schedule of outdoor activities, demonstrations and special events.
The original Bootmobile was so popular, that it needed a sidekick. So, we added a second. It's a bit smaller, lighter and greener–the engine is biodiesel compatible. An interactive entertainment system adds to the fun. Now we have a fleet of big feet, revving up for a season of special events near and far.

An interview with Bootmobile Driver, L.L.Bean ambassador, and outdoorsman Eddie Flaherty
Known to his coworkers as “Eddie of the Woods,” Eddie Flaherty is more than just gifted at driving the 13-foot Bootmobile. This Registered Maine Guide leads whitewater rafting adventures, is an avid fly fisherman, and plans on playing semi-pro football when he's not on the road.
We thought it would be great to catch up with Eddie and learn what it's like behind the wheel.
