Like everything we sell, our L.L.Bean Bean Boots are guaranteed to last, and last, and last. Sadly, after decades and a few resoles, even Bean Boots can reach retirement age. When that happens, it’s not always easy to let go of a favorite pair of boots that have journeyed many miles with you.
For years, our customers have sent us their boot stories and asked for help in retiring such a trusted pair of shoes. On a recent visit to the L.L.Bean archives, we uncovered dozens of pairs of well-worn Bean Boots and at least as many customer stories describing a sad parting of ways with a beloved pair of boots.
Today, we’d like to share a customer’s letter about retiring a particularly well-aged pair of Bean Boots. Thank you, Dennis, for sharing your story with us:
