A History of Belleville Flight Boots

Belleville Boot has been a staple fashion of the US Military for over a hundred years. They are the main supplier of Flight Boots and other footwear to the US Department of Defense. The company started with humble beginnings, a small group that grew into the largest US military boot provider. Learn about how the company was founded, and how they established a strong relationship with the US Military to provide high-quality products.

The Founding

5 Businessmen founded the Belleville Shoe Manufacturing Co. in 1904. Despite having no experience in making shoes, they were able to build up their brand to sell all across the US. During the first World War, they received their first orders for military footwear. Once the US got involved with World War II, the company began producing more military shoes. This led to the company receiving the Army-Navy "E" Award which only 5 companies received. These events led to the US Military relying on the Belleville Shoe Manufacturing Co. to provide high-quality boots for their troops.
