What is special about Tipton, Missouri? It holds the dubious distinction of possessing the world’s largest eight ball, for one thing. But, more remarkably in our opinion, Tipton is home to Orvis partner, Gokey. It’s where we make fine leather chukka boots, hiking shoes, hunting boots, and moccasins—by hand. We’ll even make them to order for the hard-to-fit foot.
Find the perfect pair of upland hunting boots. Or slip into some comfy double-sole mocs. Quality shines in the shoes’ details: hand stitching, beautifully tanned Kodiak leather, or oiled nubuck, and Vibram or Goodyear lug soles—no workmanship is spared in the creation a product that is made to perform again and again. You’ll even find snakeproof boots worn by presidents, a single pair of them tested with a hundred strikes—a test they passed with flying colors. Tasseled or laced, zip-back or pull-on, two eyelets, four eyelets, or more: Gokey leather boots and shoes are available in varied styles to accommodate your needs and tastes.
Gokey shoes and boots are a throwback to a time when things were made to last. “Someday the grandkids will fight over them,” said one customer. Orvis is pleased to present an enduring American-made product you’ll be proud pass on to the next generation.

I own 3 pair of the Gokey boots and have had them since 1982. I have walked literally hundreds of miles in these boots and totally love them! They are very comfortable and very well made. I actually got to see them being made at the original Gokey factory and which was very impressive. All made by hand! Finally, this year, I will be sending one pair back to have them re-soled if Orvis still does that. Awesome boots!!

Well constructed, good fit. This is my fourth pair of gokey shoes from you, two of which are over 15 years old and still going strong

Got my new Gokey custom boots first of week, upon trying them on.... can honestly say that I could feel the immediate sized to my foot feel... It was nice to not feel any pressure points... Will see how time and wear affects fit, but so far...Wow, they are nice. I will call custom shop and see if they can tweak my stock Gokey snake boots to feel as wonderful as my new pull ons.
