It's a little early, but here's a unique holiday gift idea for the diehard Boston Red Sox fan in your family.
L.L. Bean is creating some 50 pairs of rain boots fashioned from the "upcycled" tarp used to cover the infield during rainouts last season at Fenway Park. That's right, now fans can literally wear the tarp that Boston used during its (rather forgettable) 2012 season.
"This project brings together two of L.L.’s favorite things: Bean Boots and baseball," chief marketing officer Steve Fuller said in a statement of the company's founder, Leon Leonwood Bean. "As a season ticket holder, L.L. loved the Red Sox, and he would be delighted to see the Fenway tarp put to use in a way that fans can enjoy.”
Fans can enter to win the boots by sharing their favorite Red Sox moment on L.L. Bean's Facebook page.
