Our Story

A sub-brand born from Nicks Handmade Boots, with a legacy spanning 60 years, Brandle represents the culmination of extensive research into the finest bootmakers of the region.

There is a rich history of bootmaking in the Pacific Northwest and it is our hope that Brandle will deliver a superb product built with durable, long-lasting materials and methods this part of the world is known for.

We are fortunate to have highly skilled craftsmen and women who have spent decades practicing and refining their craft. This combination of quality and skill produces a product that we believe can legitimately compete with any bootmaker in the world.

Everything about this brand, from the name to the finishing touches on the boots themselves, is meant to honor the heritage and legacy of the family of the CEO Shuyler's wife: The Brandles.

Brandle is the result of a unique combination of Pacific Northwest heritage and family legacy that is perfectly suited to showcase superior durability, extraordinary craftsmanship, and an excellent customer experience.

At Brandle, we believe that superior craftsmanship should never compromise on aesthetics. While Nicks has long been revered for its commitment to functionality and durability, Brandle takes it a step further, incorporating meticulous design elements that showcase a heightened sense of refinement. Our boots are the perfect fusion of artistry and reliability, designed to exceed even the most discerning standards.

We recognize that true excellence lies in the details. That's why Brandle utilizes materials that outperform the already remarkable offerings of Nicks. Every veg-tanned leather component is meticulously sourced by brands such as Wickett & Craig and JR, renowned for its unrivaled quality. By combining the finest materials with our masterful craftsmanship, Brandle delivers a product that epitomizes luxury and durability.

But Brandle isn't just about extraordinary boots—it's an exceptional customer experience. When you choose Brandle, you gain access to an individual sales representative who will accompany you throughout your journey. From regular updates to exclusive communication, your dedicated representative ensures that your experience is tailored to your needs. They are the sole point of contact, overseeing every aspect of your order with utmost care.

Our commitment to personalized service extends beyond the purchase. After ordering your boots, you will receive a consultation to guarantee that every detail aligns with your preferences. Once your boots are ready for production, a confirmation call ensures that your expectations are met, leaving no room for compromise. Finally, a touchpoint upon completion guarantees that your boots are crafted to the highest level of quality possible.

To maintain our commitment to excellence, Brandle produces boots in small, limited batches of only 20 pairs per month. This deliberate approach allows us to dedicate meticulous attention to each pair, ensuring that no detail goes unnoticed. For those who miss the opportunity to order within the batch, we offer a waitlist, ensuring that everyone has a chance to experience the epitome of PNW footwear.

Brandle proudly presents boutique leather offerings from the distinctive shrunken calf to the exquisite vegetable-tanned leathers. With Brandle, you have the freedom to embrace a style that is as distinctive as it is timeless.

Welcome to Brandle, where craftsmanship and elegance intertwine.
