Handmade in the USA
The Gokey construction process is an incredible example of the bootmaker’s art – a rare thing in today’s mass-produced world. Gokey’s craftsmen expertly hand cut and hand sew this durable leather using techniques that date back generations—methods that take years to teach. They start by hand selecting the finest oil-tanned bullhide the world has to offer. This heavy, remarkably durable bullhide is molded over a hardwood last. Next, a welt is stitched to this so cunningly that no awl hole ever completely penetrates the shoe leather to admit water. An arch support is inserted, the outer sole hand-sewn into place, and the top constructed. Each stitch of waxed thread is knotted, locking it firmly in place. Keep in mind, this is done for every single individual shoe that leaves the factory. With durable Vibram® soles and modern comfort features such as cushioned leather insoles, Gokey footwear is built for comfort and a lifetime of wear.
There is a standard to all things, and when it comes to light weight upland hunting boots, Gokey holds true as to what all other boots are measured against. What makes Gokey stand out against other hunting boots? It is the quality of the materials and the pride that Gokey craftsmen take in individually building each boot with timeless techniques and exact standards.
