The Bootmobile is built to look like one ofL.L. Bean's famous duck boots - except it's much larger. The Bootmobile is built on the frame of a GMC Sierra, and is constructed from aluminum and fiberglass

If the Bootmobile had a size, like conventional shoes, it would be a 708. The person wearing those shoes would be roughly 143' tall - which is 32' taller than the Statue of Liberty - so at least she's got something to wear if those sandals aren't keeping her feet dry.

The shoelaces on the boots are made from 12-strand braided mooring rope, and capable of towing 106,000 pounds.

TheL.L. Bean Pop-Up Shop will allow you to buy some classic fall and winter gear at a discount. Representatives will also be providing free resources to help you experience the restorative power of being outside. There's even a $300 L.L. Bean gift card up for grabs.
