Brothers William (Bill) and F.M. (Mike) Brooks took a leap of faith during the Great Depression to start a shoe factory in Southeastern Ohio.
From humble beginnings as the William Brooks Shoe Co. in 1932, we are now a world leader in quality Outdoor, Work, Western, Public Service and Military footwear, but we still call Ohio home.Our History
“ It's just been a wonderful ride, with a lot of heartaches along the way and a lot of successes. To me, it's the American dream, I'm very fortunate to live in a small community and have family members that make a difference in the business. ”
- Mike Brooks, Chairman of the Board
