About Belleville Shoe Manufacturing Company:
In 1904, five Belleville businessmen founded Belleville Shoe Manufaturing Co, employing 50 workers and making between 50 to 75 pairs of shoes a day. During WWI, Belleville Shoe received its first order for military footwear. This began an enterprise that has sustained the company ever since. The military boot making resumed during WWII, and the War Department was so impressed with the Belleville boots that it was bestowed its coveted Army-Navy "E" for Excellence Award in 1945. Of the 90 companies producing combat boots during the war, only five received this distinction.
In the years since, the government has repeatedly honored Belleville Boot Co. for its quality and performance, including the Defense Departmentís prestigious Defense Quality Excellence Award in appreciation for its performance in meeting an urgent, accelerated deadline. Belleville delivered 120,000 pairs of desert boots on or ahead of the revised schedule. The Defense Logistics Agency, which conferred the award, noted that of 656,000 boots Belleville produced in the year from Aug. 18, 1989 to Aug. 17, 1990, not a single boot failed to meet government quality requirements.
Belleville Boot continues to be the leading provider and innovator of combat boots, protective boots, flight boots and tactical military boots for the US Department of Defense (DoD). At 108 years old and over 1 million pairs of military boots sold annually, Belleville is still the oldest and largest US military boot provider.
