Nocona Boots

Nocona Boots

Nocona Boot Company was founded by Miss Enid Justin in 1925. Her goal was simple - to carry on her father's (H.J. Justin) tradition of making quality western boots in the town he loved. In 1887 H.J. Justin moved his family and boot factory to Nocona. At the age of 12, in 1906, Miss Enid started working in her father's shop. She dropped out of school in the eighth grade, her rebellion for having been suspended for dancing on Sunday at her brother's birthday party in her parent's home. She worked with her father for the next 12 years learning the fine points of the trade, absorbing his knowledge and his love for the hand-crafted boots. After H.J. Justin died in 1918, other members of the family wanted to move the business to Fort Worth. Miss Enid felt so strongly thather father wanted the company in Nocona, she stayed. In 1925, her brothers packed up the equipment and moved to Fort Worth. Miss Enid had made her decision. She borrowed $5,000 to keep seven employees in her small shop and founded the Nocona Boot Company. The discovery of oil near Nocona brought many new customer's to Miss Enid's young company. They made a 16 inch "lace-up" boot that was tough enough to survive the oil fields and the wildcatters kept coming back for more. And like those wildcatters once you get a pair of Nocona Boots on your feet you too will be back for more.
