Historic Vancouver shoe store

The definition of a blast from the past, Dayton Boots has been handcrafting quality leather boots in the same factory store in East Vancouver since the 1950s. In fact, the Vancouver Heritage Foundation designated the factory as a Place That Matters. Reading the store’s history is a veritable trip back in time.

Dayton doesn’t make just your average boots either. There are over 230 steps in the making of a pair of Dayton Boots, a process used by only 3% of the world’s bootmakers today.

Dayton’s biker boots, urban boots, and work boots are made for both men and women from tier-one cowhide leather with 100% leather insoles and midsoles. They also carry a lifetime warranty.

These boots are clearly made for both walking and standing the test of time.
