For 170 years, Gokey has been setting the industry standard unmatched by other brands. Explorers, soldiers, Presidents such as Eisenhower and Roosevelt, and renowned authors like Hemingway have relied on Gokey boots. But their timeless style and long-lasting quality is not reserved for the famous: anyone can own a pair. Each boot is 100% made in the USA, crafted by a skilled artisan who trained for five years. No outsourcing or importing: Gokey manufactures all boots, shoes, gun cases, and luggage in Tipton, Missouri. The oil-tanned leather construction ensures generations-long durability, though natural variations in color may be observed. The sole and mid-sole are made of full leather, and the Vamp and Tongue feature canvas inserts. On average, each pair weighs 3.0 lbs.
