Nicks Boot Review: Must Read Before Buying This

Home » Nicks Boot Review: Must Read Before Buying This

Pacific Northwest boots are legendary around the world. Given the conditions that work boots face in such an environment, boots made by local companies naturally became extremely tough and durable. With boots having become more popular as casual footwear in the new millennium, some of these makers have started to take notice and begun offering more casual models in their line ups.

Nicks Handmade Boots began in 1964 in Spokane, Washington, with the purpose of building the best work boots possible, from the best leather and materials, and with the idea of earning customers for life. Today no company makes a better work boot than Nicks and we are proud that all of our products are still made in the USA with American materials.

It has been smoother for some than others. Viberg has transitioned so far that you would be forgiven if you forgot that they are even based in the Pacific Northwest. They began making more casual designs and offering leathers that were less adept at withstanding fire and more at home being stared at by weirdos who enjoy beautiful vegetable tanned leather… people like me. However, some of the other brands in the area were a little slow on the uptake. For a while, Wesco only made interesting boots for Japan until the Standard and Strange collaboration engineers started coming out. Whites took forever to adapt, but now they’ve gone all in, hiring an Instagram influencer to run their social media and making an Instagram page so stereotypically PNW hipster that it probably drives a Subaru. Some of the smaller brands such as Dayton and Franks seem to have just completely ignored this new boot market for better or worse.

Nicks Boots are noted for their toughness, distinct look, and what the company calls the “legendary arch,” four layers designed to simulate the foot’s natural form and provide longevity. If you’re lucky enough to be based in the Pacific Northwest, we’d even recommend you swing by the brand’s Spokane showroom to try out the fit process for yourself — the end result might just be some of the best boots you’ve ever worn.
