Frank’s career in the boot industry began in 1995 as General Manager of Nick’s Custom Boots in Spokane, WA. Over the last two decades, he has gained experience in all facets of the footwear business. He’s done everything on the production side from cutting leather to custom fitting. As general manager, his focus was geared toward the business side with purchasing, retail, wholesale and management of a growing company.
With careful guidance, it grew the company 5-fold, bringing them from 5 to 25+ employees and from a 2,000 sq ft space to 10,000 sq ft of manufacturing space.
In 2016, Nick’s Custom Boots moved to a new location with its new owner, leaving the building on Market and Garland vacant. After some serious debate, he had an inspiration...why not open his own boot company in that location and that’s exactly what happened. So not only is he back in the business he knows and loves, but he’s back in the same building. He currently employs 9 craftsman who followed him to help build the Frank’s name.
One thing that has not changed is the emphasis on producing top quality boots. Frank’s boots last anywhere from five to 15 years on average. A custom-fit boot that is comfortable can truly be life-changing for many workers who spend a lot of time on their feet.
Frank’s customers are from all walks of life, their footwear is manufactured for construction workers, farmers, lineman, lumber- jacks, truck and machine operators, wildland firefighters and counter workers are among our satisfied customers. They also have a line of casual and semi-dress boots for the business professional. Frank’s also retails other brands including Danner, Georgia, Keen, Merrell, Carolina and Hoffman Boots.
The newest addition to our boot repair shop, will be expanded by the recent purchase of Sadd’s Shoe Service. As of October 1, 2019, Frank’s will be adding repairs and rebuilds on everything from high heels to Birkenstock’s and from leather handbags to belts, making it a unique one-stop shop for all your footwear needs.
