Gokey Custom Footwear
The world’s best value. For the ultimate fit, nothing rivals handcrafted Gokey footwear custom-made to your specifications. What’s most remarkable about Gokey is that it is the only footwear company of its size to provide custom made oxfords, hiking shoes, Snakeproof Boots, or upland boots in various weights to fit your foot and your foot alone. Just as a fine tailor requires your own precise measurements for a fitted look and feel of a fine sport coat or shirt, Gokey will take your precise foot measurements to custom fit a shoe to your exact foot width, length, and arch. Imagine—footwear that will last a lifetime or more, and has the comfort of one made solely to your own foot’s measurements. There is no other shoe company that offers this custom fit cobbling on such a wide scale.
Handmade in the USA
The Gokey construction process is an incredible example of the bootmaker’s art - a rare thing in today’s mass-produced world. At the Tipton, Missouri headquarters, Gokey craftsmen expertly hand cut and hand sew this durable leather using techniques that date back generations—methods that take years to teach. We start by hand selecting the finest oil-tanned hides the world has to offer. This heavy, remarkably durable leather is molded over a hardwood last. Next, a welt is stitched to this so cunningly that no awl hole ever completely penetrates the shoe leather to admit water. An arch support is inserted, the outer sole hand-sewn into place, and the top constructed. Each stitch of waxed thread is knotted, locking it firmly in place. Keep in mind, this is done for every single individual shoe that leaves the factory. And with durable Vibram® soles and modern comfort features such as cushioned leather insoles, Gokey footwear is built for comfort and a lifetime of wear.
Over the past 150+ years, the mission of the Gokey Company has remained unchanged: No compromise in quality or custom fit.
