About Us

Gorilla Boots are dependable, stylish, and “Brutally Strong.” Handcrafted in America in the most labor-intensive conditions, a quality that is reflected in the rugged look of their products.

Gorilla Boots are just as attentive to their outward style. Each boot has a rugged aesthetic brought about by the resilient leather, tough visible stitching, hard rubble sole, and hand-finished construction. Each model has a sleek overall shape not usually typical of a workhorse boot. Fashionable details like studded wingtips, suede highlights, and contrast stitches add casual wearability to the package.


Gorilla was founded in 1906 by Massachusetts union workers looking for a durable set of footwear for their labor-intensive jobs. The boots were handcrafted stitch-by-stitch for a unique, meticulously detailed product – a tradition that still continues today. The hand-finished build gives each pair its own character with slight variations.  Today, Gorilla’s boots are produced in the Allgheny Mountains of Pennsylvania, where hunting, hiking, and outdoor work are a way of life.

Popular Styles

Gorilla Boot – Gorilla’s main offering is available in high or low cuts, offering two options for a rough hike or day in the factory. The welted construction, Vibram® lug rubber sole, and waxed cloth shaft ensure a high level of comfort and durability to last through the rigorous needs of the wearer.

Chukka – Gorilla’s take on the chukka applies its knack for “Brutally Strong” construction to the classic style of footwear. The simplified panels and elegant lines of the chukka-inspired upper create a classy, nearly dressy appearance for the boot. The leather welted construction and tough natural rubber sole ensure that the boot can withstand rough conditions, but its refined design makes it into a natural choice to complete any stylish outfit.
