All About Us
“Great Shoes to Boot Since 1908”
Heisler’s Bootery opened in 1908 in Crystal Lake under the ownership of John Heisler Sr., a harness maker and shoe repairman who was interested in creating comfortable, lasting work boots.
During WWI, Heisler Sr. turned his full attention to factory-made shoes, and his perseverance through world wars and several recessions and depressions paid off. The store prevailed, and with the help and expertise of several Heisler children and grandchildren, it grew its status as a highly reputable shoe store.
Today, under the helm of third-generation owner Jim Heisler, Heisler’s Bootery continues its long-standing tradition of providing quality shoes and outstanding service, and the store proudly holds the honor of being one of the oldest continuously family-owned businesses in McHenry County.
