Otto White learned bootmaking from his father, who learned it from his father, who learned on the job, shoeing loggers and soldiers in the Blue Ridge mountains in the late 1800’s. By the time Otto set up shop in Spokane in 1915, White’s Boots already had a reputation for making the most comfortable and durable boot money could buy. Today, Whites continues to do things Otto’s way: by hand. Otto was convinced that nothing short of a full handmade was the way a boot should be made. Made with pride and worn with pride.
