The late 1800s saw the advent of rubber sole shoes become practical to manufacture. The hunting community soon adopted the technology, producing tall leather boots with thick rubber bottoms - popular with duck hunters wading the marshes of New England. In 1912, LL Bean released the Maine Hunting Shoe, a version designed for mass production still produced today.
