L.L. Bean Boots haven’t changed much in over a hundred years, but they’re built so well that they haven’t had to. The new L.L. Bean Small Batch Bean Boots don’t screw with the construction or quality but update some of the most popular models with new colors and options. The releases start right now with the Spring Batch, which includes a Classic 6″ Boot in a sail orange sole and a field olive upper, along with the Classic 8″ Boot dark ash with a brick red sole. The Summer Batch features the 8″ Padded Collar Boot with an olive upper and the 6″ Padded Collar Boot with a Navy upper. It has an expected release of August 2017. The Fall Batch includes a 10″ Maine Hunting Shoe (waxed canvas and leather), 16″ Maine Hunting Shoe (extra 6″ of waxed canvas) and the Flannel-Lined Boot, which will be released in September / October this year. Rounding out the year is the Winter Batch release in November that includes new versions of the Wicked Good Boot, 16″ Shearling-Lined Boot and the Lounger Boot.
