Spread our passion for boots and help make the world a little better. That was true when we created the first pair of Lane Boots in 2007, and it’s just as true today.
Our story begins as a business, not as a passion. We were little more than a broker of another company’s closeout Western boots. That company needed boots and presented our founder, Patrick Lane, with the opportunity to be a supplier. He sourced those closeouts, negotiated the deal and began shipping the product. It was simply a business deal.
The company began receiving emails, letters and reviews from customers who loved the boots. These customers shared how the boots changed their lives or how the boots made them feel. Words such as proud, confident, happiness and joy were popular in their comments. It was then that Patrick realized a simple pair of boots could impact people in a sincere and positive way.
