Wesco Boots | ShowCase

In 1918, Henry Shoemaker founded the West Coast Shoe Company in sleepy Scappoose, Washington. His customers were rugged frontiersmen, loggers, miners and ranchers who needed footwear that could withstand the rigors of daily abuse. In response, he perfected a 155-step process of cutting, molding, gluing, sewing, riveting, sanding, and polishing each of the 14 separate pieces of leather that it takes to build a pair of Wesco boots.

The company feature nine sturdy styles, and we’re especially fond of the classic black “Boss.” The construction, from steel toe to optional fireproof sole, is worthy of any biker looking for boots that expect abuse and withstand punishment. Considering the scant few inches between your feet and the unforgiving asphalt rushing recklessly beneath them, a pair of Wesco boots might be the most important piece of clothing you wear while riding.

Wesco provides a measurement template with each customer’s order, then builds the boots in matching pairs to your specifications, all in an effort to properly fit the boots to your feet. Hides are taken from the thickest part of a steer’s rump, and soles are stitched completely through the Vibram treads. Before leaving the factory, every detail, thread and rivet is closely scrutinized to assure that inside the box that arrives at your door are some of the toughest boots on the planet.
