When it come to heritage footwear, Gokey leads the pack. Handmade since 1850 here in America, and now a stand-alone part of the Orvis family, they are boots that last a lifetime. We are going to dig deep into Gokey in the coming months, but given that Fall is fast approaching, it’s a good idea to get your Gokeys in for a restoration. You want them ready for action, right?
Call the good folks at Orvis and they’ll help you get your shoes to the Gokey headquarters in Tipton, Missouri. Gokey provides all sorts of options, depending on the need of the shoe or boot, beginning with a resole on up to full restoration.
The good folks at Gokey were nice enough to send me some before and after pictures.
