    We’re extremely proud to offer a selection of men’s and women’s Justin cowboy boots that are made in the USA. Why? First, shopping domestic puts food on the table for local artisans – your father, your neighbor, your best friend’s mother, the shop owner just down the street… real, hardworking Americans, just like you and me.  Second, supporting companies that produce American made products helps keep the history of craftsmanship alive here in the U.S. Third, our customers appreciate the exceptional quality and proud heritage that goes hand-in-hand with made in the USA products. And finally, because we love western wear brands that provide valuable jobs in our communities!

    Justin Boots

    Justin cowboy boots have been handcrafted in the United States since 1879, when H.J. Justin opened shop at his home in Spanish Fort, Texas. Justin’s first customers were, unsurprisingly, cowboys who were passing by on their way up the Chisholm Trail. The whole family became involved in the Justin boot business, and the boot company became H.J. Justin and Sons. By 1910, Justin Boots were sold in 26 states – a pretty amazing feat considering the lack of transportation and communication technologies. Justin and Sons saw a need to include women in the business from an early start. In the early 1920s, the company launched the first pair of cowboy boots made exclusively for women: the Western Gypsy. For the Justin Gypsy cowgirl boot fans in the crowd, you’re probably grateful for that decision!

    Four Locations & Possibly Growing

    Today, Justin Brands is one of the largest shoe manufacturers in the United States. Isn’t that incredible?! Justin Brands operates four domestic factories: El Paso, TX; Brewer, ME; Cassville, MO; and Carthage, MO. Within these four factories, cowboy boots and cowgirl boots are crafted for Justin Boots, Tony Lama Boots, Nocona Boots, Chippewa Boots, and Justin Original Workboots. Justin Brands proudly boasts more than 440 years of combined boot-making experience across these outstanding western boot brands.

    Justin Brands purchased the Brewer, Maine, factory in early 2013, and the company hasn’t shut down efforts to expand farther. In a press release announcing the expansion, Randy Watson, Justin Brands, Inc. CEO and chairman, stated, “The success of our brands is a result of a rich history and our progressive approach to the future. As a Berkshire Hathaway corporation we are always open to acquisitions and opportunities. Planting new roots in a market distinctively rich in America’s footwear heritage aligns with our ongoing commitment to domestic manufacturing.” Clearly, USA made cowboy boots are a big focus at Justin Brands, and the company will likely continue to grow based on those strong core values.

    What Difference Does It Really Make?

    Besides benefiting the local economy by employing people in our community, purchasing products made in the USA is a stamp of quality craftsmanship. Justin Brands employees are craftsmen with a dedication to producing superior artisan products. Not only are these employees extensively trained, they work in an environment where customer service is of the utmost importance. Justin Brands makes great investments in hiring skilled employees, implementing the latest technologies, and fostering a culture that encourages employees to go above and beyond in crafting durable, comfortable, and attractive cowboy boots.

    I received my Justin boots today. There was a tag attached to one of the boots that read: there are chemicals used in the making of these boots that may cause cancer!!!! Wth. California is who made this caution. Now this has me frightened. I had cancer 6 years ago and now I don’t know if I should even wear them, and they are quite lovely. Can you please enlighten me on this????

    I have worn Justin boots since 1958 as a young trick roper today I perform in white inlaid Justin boots because they come wider (C width) than other makers and are comfortable. The factory in Ft. Worth made me a custom pair in the 80’s and I have had great success with them and my crepe soled boots. I now have a pair of ostrich women’s boots for dress. I do not believe in out sourcing any USA product we need to support our companies in the US. I only buy USA made products when I can. Thank you Justin for your dedication to workmanship, choice leathers, retaining some USA made boots. Joan Wells

    I purchase Justin boots exclusively and have always been satisfied. I purchased a pair of black ropers.
    and put them on and worn them a couple of times. I didn’t try to send them back. I purchased them on eBay
    they were new in the box. I have worn 6 time they look like they are ten years old. So when was in San Antonio Visiting
    I went to Sheplers and Carven and looked at what they had in stock they were made the same lose at the arch. They would in up the same as the ones I have. He said they will tighted up as you wear them. I told him did not know what he was talking about and I told he was full of Bull. I do leather carvings, chaps, belts. And, I have been working with leather for 20 years and have gone to several schools for this kind of work one of them was Oklahoma State U.
    I told him that’s what happens you high go to high production quality goes to hell. Oh they will sell to people that want to act like Cowboys and think no one knows .
    Just wanted to let you know what a long time customer thinks of the product that you are making or who ever is making them for Justin. I don’t have any complaints on the other Justin boots I buy.
    Thank you for your time,
