OUR NAME SAYS WHERE WE’RE FROM. NOW LET US TELL YOU WHAT WE’RE ABOUT.
HISTORY IS IN OUR MAKING.
Named for the figures and landmarks that have helped make Milwaukee what it is today, our boots are a hand-crafted nod to our city’s wealth of industry and work ethic. They’re made for those who crave real craftsmanship. Those who work with their hands, and are fearless when it comes to failure. For those who hold on to true grit, determination, and will be damned if their boots don’t follow suit.
IN ORDER TO BRANCH OUT,
WE WENT BACK TO OUR ROOTS.
The first Milwaukee leather tannery opened in 1842 and throughout the next several decades, the city became the largest leather manufacturing center in the world. The city was responsible for creating everything from boots and saddles, to jackets and materials for the Civil War.
FOR THOSE WHO WORK WITH THEIR HANDS.
Like our city in past centuries, we are committed to superior quality and craftsmanship. We promise to continue creating high quality boots and accessories, using the best materials we can get our hands on. And we’ll make sure everything we make can withstand anything thrown its way.
DIRECT TO CONSUMER
STICK IT TO THE MIDDLEMAN.
We come from a long line of shoemakers and artisans and operate out of our family-owned, third generation factories, located worldwide. You could say we know a thing or two about footwear and what to look for in a quality boot. While we’ve been refining our craft for 3 generations, it wasn’t until 2019 that we opened our flagship store beneath our corporate headquarters, located in the heart of Walker’s Point, Milwaukee. Now, you can get the same quality, directly from the source. Without the mark ups.
ALL BOOT. NO BULLSHIT.
We’re a small team with a big work ethic, and we make no exceptions when it comes to quality. Like many of you, we believe that good things take time. We adhere to the proverbial saying “haste makes waste.” We take pride in the amount of time it takes to make each boot, something that fast-fashion will never understand.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND
Craftsmen, creators, doers, and weekend warriors. All from Milwaukee. All wearing Milwaukee Boot Co.
