Who is the founder of LL Bean?
Leon Leonwood Bean
L.L.Bean was founded in 1912 by its namesake, hunter and fisherman Leon Leonwood Bean in Freeport, Maine. The company began as a one-room operation selling a single product, the Maine Hunting Shoe (also known as duck boots).
- L.L. Bean is one of many American retailers dedicated to providing their customers with products manufactured in the United States. To be clear, not all of their products are made in the USA, but they do make an effort.
- Give rain and snow the boot — while still looking cute. When it's slushy, raining, or snowy outside in cold winter temps, normal rain boots simply don't get the job done. Luckily, duck boots are a thing, and they're exactly what you should be wearing when you want to keep your feet warm and dry.
- Bean Boots only come in whole sizes. (I typically wear a size 7.5 in flats and boots, and I take a size 7 in Bean Boots.) If you plan on wearing the boots with light socks, L.L.Bean recommends ordering a full size down for whole-sizers, and ordering 1.5 sizes down for half-sizers.

- Be sure to get as much crusty mud off the soles of the shoes before you put them in, and take out the shoelaces. It's also good practice to throw an old towel in with your shoes, so they don't bang around too much. Run the washing machine with cold water, preferably on the delicates setting, and let it work its magic.
- Dip a corner of the cotton cloth into the detergent water, then scrub off the dirt in a circular motion. Use a clean damp cotton cloth to rinse off the soap. Repeat as needed, and let the shoes air dry. For leather espadrilles, clean them off using any commercial leather cleaner.
- Close the door and the strings will hold the shoes in place so they don't tumble around. For most shoes, you probably want to keep the dryer on a lower heat so it doesn't ruin the leather or plastic, but it's still a lot quicker than stuffing newspaper inside them and waiting overnight.
