Oak Street Bootmakers

Chicago based Oak Street Bootmakers was founded in 2010 by a son of a cobbler, George Vlagos. George spent his youth working in his father’s shop, learning the trade. He was inspired by the brands that his father repaired, that were built to be resoled and recrafted, thus giving the owner a shoe that would last a lifetime. George created Oak Street Bootmakers with a goal of producing American made boots and shoes that would provide his customers with the same well-crafted, long lasting footwear that he grew up with.
