L.L. Bean, a Maine-based retailer of outdoor gear and apparel, said it’s giving its signature boots a Red Sox makeover. The boots will be fashioned from the “upcycled” tarp used to cover parts of the Fenway Park field during rain delays last season. “The one-of-a-kind boots will be made-to-order for 100 lucky Red Sox fans who engage with L.L.Bean on Facebook and other channels,” the company said in a press release. “The opportunity to win begins today, when fans can visit Facebook.com/llbean to share their favorite Red Sox moment for a chance to own a piece of baseball history. Submissions will be received through Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013. Fifty winners will be selected at random and notified on Oct. 21. Additional ways to win ... will be announced.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
