Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: Big L.L. Bean Boot

Maybe 10 feet high. A sign warns people not to climb on it, but its worn toe suggests that people have at least been sitting on it.

Big L.L. Bean Boot

The L.L. Bean at this Pittsburgh-area mall hosts a ten-or-so-foot-tall boot outside its doors, similar to the footwear giants in Maine and elsewhere. A sign warns, "Do not climb on the boot."
