Regular price $ 60.00

In the 1910s, Leon Leonwood Bean of Maine became dissatisfied with his hunting boots and developed a waterproof leather and rubber boot, which he called the  Maine Hunting Shoe. Bean opened his one-room business in 1912 in his brother’s basement in Freeport, Maine. Bean created a mailing list by obtaining a list of nonresident Maine hunting license holders and began his mail order business which in time grew to include everything one needed for the great outdoors.

This model is listed as a women’s 10, but seeing as the design is the same as the men’s boot, it’s essentially unisex and should fit a men’s 9. The insole measures 26.5 cm / 10.4 inches. 

Boots are in overall good condition with only one splotch on the leather uppers. They have recently been cleaned and the uppers conditioned with Blackrock. The boots include gel insoles and plastic shoe trees. 

Details:

  • Unisex
  • Leather uppers
  • Rubber bottoms
  • Steel shank
  • Removable gel insoles 
  • Shoe trees
  • Made in USA
