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 – including Heisler Sr.’s son, Leonard, who took over the business and ran it until 1999 – 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.
