Born and raised in Seattle, we are experts in wet weather. Founded in 1891, Washington Shoe Company began making boots to hold up against tough weather conditions during the Alaska Gold Rush. Today, we continue to provide family footwear options for outdoor wear through our family of brands; Western Chief, Chooka, and Staheekum. Footwear offerings range from lovable character rain boots for kids, whimsical and cozy boots for women, durable work boots for men, and more. 

Whether you need boots for play, trudging through muddy fields, gardening, navigating city streets, or every day wear - Western Chief has you covered with affordable, functional boots to fit your lifestyle. For those less rainy days, we offer sandals with the same styling, whimsical prints, and bright colors as your favorite boots.
