H.J. Justin entered the boot business in 1879 after he left his hometown of Lafayette, Indiana and moved to Texas. Already an established boot repairer, he quickly began his own boot company out of his home. It became a family affair in 1908 when his sons joined the company. By 1910, Justin boots were being sold in 26 states, Canada, Mexico, and Cuba for $11 a pair. From then on out, Justin has only grown, picking up new lines and expanding their fan base everywhere they turn. Their line of western wear products has expanded since the early days to include wallets, belts, clothing, buckles, sandals, and, of course, more boots.
