Scappoose, OR (PressExposure) January 14, 2010 -- Founded in 1918 by John Henry Shoemaker, West Coast Shoe Company (Wesco) is still going strong 92 years later, building handcrafted boots in its Scappoose, Oregon, factory for customers all over the world. Wesco boasts a full line of occupational and recreational boots including: motorcycle boots, engineer boots, motorcycle patrol boots, construction boots, timber boots, climbing boots for linemen and arborists, electrical hazard boots for power linemen and utility workers, and custom made boots for everyday wear.
"Wesco is truly the last of its kind. Our DVD tells the story of one of the only remaining bootmakers in the U.S. that's still building a made-to-order, custom product," said Wesco President Roberta Shoemaker, granddaughter of the founder. ( http://www.westcoastshoe.com/wesco/ )
"We receive online orders from all over the world," Shoemaker continued. "This DVD will give our customers a virtual tour of our Oregon factory and the opportunity to see the level of detail that goes into making each and every pair of Wesco boots."

As Wesco confidently moves toward a century of outstanding craftsmanship, they've seen their boots withstand the conditions of Oregon's timber camps, ride down the mean streets of Sturgis, 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.
