When the Industrial Revolution brought railroads, a new canal, and bustling industry to the Blackstone Valley in Massachusetts, a new need arose: rugged, durable, and virtually indestructible footwear. Over 100 years later, the American tradition of Brutally Strong Gorilla Footwear continues at their factory in Pennsylvania, where members of Local Union 1776 hand-sew each shoe and boot. The footwear maintains its early Americana workwear aesthetic, while keeping with modern design and timeless construction.
