At MESH01 we regularly host competitive design projects, but these I thought might be of particular interest here because it is not every day you get the chance redesign a footwear icon.

L.L. Bean Bean Boot

Perhaps there is not a more iconic boot in the world than the LL Bean Bean Boot. For over 100 years Bean Boots have been beloved by everyone from practical Outdoorsmen to Fashionable College Students to Pragmatic New Englanders. Although timeless in their original design, and firmly entrenched in our assortment, after 100 years it’s time to look towards the future. Based on the demands and trends of today’s consumer, it’s time to think about a new Boot to sit alongside the original. It’s time to create a Bean Boot for the next 100 years.

L.L. Bean Wicked Good Footwear

LL Bean has always made world class products to protect our customers from the elements and our Wicked Good Slippers are no exception. This type of natural and honest footwear has kept our customers feet warm for over 80 years and recently has found its way out of the house and onto School campuses, Ski lodges and other nontraditional settings for slippers. Based on the deep connection customers have developed with shearling footwear, where do we go next?
