To celebrate its 100th anniversary, L.L. Bean has sent its Bootmobile on a road trip across America. The campy car is modeled, of course, on the iconic Maine Hunting Shoe, which has been worn by Ernest Hemingway and every preppy in the Northeast for generations. In 1994, the Bean Boot got a very fancy upgrade when shoe designer Manolo Blahnik reinterpreted the rubber-and-leather classic—and gave it a spiked heel. Blahnik’s boot was included in an exhibit on sporting clothes at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology last year, and blogger Foster Huntington even discovered them in L.L. Bean’s own archives when he made a pilgrimage to Freeport, Maine, in 2009.
