Wesco® boots earned an indelible, rough and tumble reputation when they first appeared in the great outdoors on the muddy slopes of Oregon's timber camps.  That was in 1918.  Today this same, family-owned business builds boots for loyal customers all over the world, and still from their Scappoose, Oregon workshop.

Two factors have always kept Wesco® boots in a league of their own: the quality of materials they use and the details in their craftsmanship. They leave no room for compromise and nothing to chance.

Wesco® boots are built in their own factory, in their own backyard.  Every boot is made from top quality, full grain leather.  The integrity of materials used throughout the boot building process is above reproach — steel is used where another boot maker might use plastic — leather is always used instead of cork.  Their dedicated bootmakers work as a team, hand-to-hand, in a 155 step-by-step process that requires skill, strength, and discipline.

“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.”
— John H. Shoemaker, Founder, West Coast Shoe Company
