A boot with a lot of sole and other Bootmobile wordplay

This year, our iconic L.L.Bean Boot transformed into the Bootmobile and set off on an East Coast tour in celebration of our 100th anniversary. While out on the road, Bootmobile drivers Eric and Keith always meet L.L.Bean fans with their own L.L.Bean stories to share – as well as a few chuckle-worthy “boot” puns.


Keith and the Bootmobile

Keith, one of our Bootmobile drivers


Looks like our fans can be pretty clever. Here are some of our favorite Bootmobile puns, as submitted by Keith:


“So, they gave you the boot, huh?”


“How does it fit? Is it the right size?”


“Hey, your shoe’s untied!”


“Hope you’ve got some Odor-Eaters™ in that thing.”


“One thing about it…it’s got lots of sole.”


“You must have been a shoe-in for your job.”


The Bootmobile drivers tread lightly and never let on that they’ve heard them all before.


Keith's Perspective


We can’t choose a favorite. Do you have a play-on-boots to add to the list?

    No play on words but how about a theme song? “This Boot Was Made For Driving”

    If the boot fits drive it

    This boot is a shoe-in for car of the year.

    Down here in Texas, we’d say it brings a whole new meaning to the term, ‘Boot-scootin'”

    Keep the rubber side down.

    I feel like such a heel, I’ve searched my sole and can’t seem to come up with anything clever, and it should be such a shoe-in to think up something. You’ll have to give me the boot on this one, somehow the harder I try, the more I just keep stubbing my toe on it.

    I guess the Batmobile has met its arch-rival.

    For a nod to your international (in this case, British) customers: “You can obviously fit a good-sized engine under the bonnet of that vehicle, but where exactly is the boot?”

    To boot, you want more puns.
