In 1904, the Belleville Shoe Company originated in Belleville, IL as a small manufacturing operation for men and boys shoes. Within a few years, the operation had grown to over 200 people producing thousands of pairs of shoes a day. By World War I, the U.S. Military contracted with the Belleville Shoe Company to supply combat boots for soldiers. The U.S. Military's choice of Belleville as a supplier continues today because of the commitment to providing quality footwear to U.S. troops from all military services. Belleville relies on cutting edge footwear technology, the newest manufacturing techniques, and high-quality materials in all of their boots. Since the Vietnam War, the design and material of Belleville’s military boots have adapted once again to suit the conditions of the hot weather desert environment in the Persian Gulf. The Belleville logo is stamped on every pair of the three thousand combat boots that they provide to U.S. soldiers every day.
