The White's Boots tradition has its roots in the logging country of west Virginia back before the Civil War. It was there that Otto White's father & grandfather made calked boots for the logging industry. In 1902, the tradition was carried west when Otto and his father moved to St. Maries, Idaho. Then in 1915 they moved to Spokane, Washington where, under Otto's guidance, the business flourished. The durability of White's Boots, their incredible "Arch-Ease" support and Otto's pride in his product, gave White's Boots a reputation that is the envy of boot manufacturers everywhere. Otto White remained active in the shop until his death at age 91 in 1972.
During it's over 100-year history, White's has maintained an unwavering focus on quality in the boots that it builds and the service that it provides. Today we still build our boots one at a time by hand for one simple reason, to ensure that our customers enjoy the finest boots made anywhere in the world. We know that's a strong claim but it's one that we gladly back every day by continuing to use only the finest materials, designs, and craftsmanship.
The growth and success that has followed White's Boots stems directly from a simple fact-White's commitment to exceptional quality in everything we manufacture and sell, combined with small-town friendly service second to none. That's what White's Boots is all about!
