Olathe is still producing quality boots for cowboys.
Since 1873, before the time of the railroad arrived, custom boots were being made in Olathe, Kansas. Near the Kansas City stock yards where the earliest Texas cattle drive’s ended. From legends of the Old West, like Wild Bill Hickok and Jesse James, to champion bronc and bull riders, Olathe has produced boots for a wide range of folks including our hero, the working cowboy. Known for their workmanship and leathers, exceptional fit and durability, boots from Olathe became so popular with cowboys from Texas to Washington State, that Olathe gained fame as the center of cowboy boot making. Today, after more than 130 years, Olathe is still producing quality boots for cowboys.
