The History of Huseby Custom Boots
My name is Thad Huseby. I
am originally from Montana where I grew up working with horses and cattle. I
began working with leather, making horse tack and other quality leather goods,
when I was nine years old.
It wasn’t until high
school I found out I have two drastically different sized feet and that the
majority of people actually have similar issues yet do not know it. Shortly
after graduating, I had a pair of custom boots made and what a difference it
made in fit and comfort. Since then I became passionate about boot making. I like
helping people and creating something that they would enjoy. It is a special
feeling when a customer tells you, "you gave me my walk back" and it's something you made.
I attended the R.I.
Merrel Institute of Bootmaking and later personally trained with C.T. Chappell,
World Champion Master Bootmaker. I continued my education with courses in
pedorthotics to learn the biomechanics of the feet and legs and also studied
the techniques of several bootmakers.
I want to
keep improving and eventually pass along the tradition of bootmaking through
teaching classes in Bonners Ferry, Idaho or wherever God may lead me next.
feet need to carry you the rest of your life.
Why not take care of them with
