See the history and how Wesco Custom Boots are Made in America, today as they have been in Portland Oregon since the early 1900s. The Great Depression affected the original Boot-maker, but his Family picked up the equipment and continued his dream.
For 93 years, four generations of the Shoemaker family have invested blood, sweat, and tears into a business which is both legacy and legend. From our early days in the timber camps, measuring loggers' feet for boots, to entering the 21st century with the ultimate customer convenience of online ordering, Wesco has surely evolved. But as they say, nothing changes so much as it stays the same.
We're still here in Scappoose, building fine boots with John Shoemaker's unwavering commitment to quality. To see a Wesco boot built is still a beautiful thing - 155 carefully finessed steps from start to finish. In the words of our founder, "A shoe is no better than the leather it is made of - and all the leather on the market is not worth a 'whoop' where there is no shoemaking skill." These words tell our Wesco story - a simple tale of quality that has endured a serious test of time.
