Custom Made Boot Maker Wesco Offers Video Guide for Unique Custom Fitting Process

For nearly a century, Wesco has been making handcrafted boots for men and women including leather motorcycle boots, engineer boots, steel toe work boots, Wesco lineman boots, and electrical hazard work boots.

Portland, OR – January 25, 2010 (PressReleasePivot) — West Coast Shoe Company (Wesco®) has remained family-owned and operated since 1918. Wesco, founded by John Henry Shoemaker, has been handcrafting boots the old-fashioned way in its Scappoose, Oregon, factory for 92 years. Wesco is well known for its high-quality line of leather occupational and recreational boots including but not limited to: motorcycle boots, engineer boots, work boots, climbing boots, electrical hazard boots, and logger boots. The company specializes in handcrafted, custom-fitted footwear.

“Wesco is proud to build high quality custom made and custom-fitted boots in the tradition of my grandfather,” said Wesco President Roberta Shoemaker. “Our custom fitting DVD will guide customers through the measuring process step-by-step, so they feel confident taking their own measures.” A short video showing the custom boot measurement process can be seen at

“We receive online orders from all over the world, in places where we couldn’t possibly have dealers or showrooms,” Shoemaker continued. “This custom fitting DVD will give our customers the ability to easily fill out our custom fit form no matter where they live.”

For nearly a century, Wesco has been making footwear of outstanding craftsmanship. Wesco boots are built to be rugged enough to withstand the conditions of Oregon’s timber camps or ride down the mean streets of Sturgis, and fashionable enough to walk the high fashion runways of New York and Paris and light up the big screen in blockbuster films such as Ghost Rider, Terminator and The Aviator. Ninety-two years later, Wesco’s reputation for quality is known from Scappoose to Japan and most places in between. A brief history can be seen at
