Little’s Boot & Shoe Hospital

1915 – 1930

In the bustling streets of San Antonio, Lucien Little, a shoe salesman with a dream, opened the doors to Little’s Boot & Shoe Hospital. His shop, initially a haven for weary shoes seeking new life, quickly evolved into a cornerstone of custom boot-making. It was here, among the leather and laces, that Lucien laid the foundation for what would become a legacy of Texas craftsmanship.

Ben Little’s Legacy

1930s – 1940s

Ben Little, inheriting his father’s knack for innovation, saw beyond the repair bench. He envisioned boots that could conquer the rugged Texas landscape with finesse. Crafting boots that melded durability with style, Ben’s creations became the silent witness to the tireless toil of ranchers and the steadfast spirit of cowboys.

Evolving Boot Designs

1940s – 1966

The 1940s brought change as ranchers and cowboys ventured into the growing cityscape of San Antonio and their boots walked from dusty trails to paved streets. Ben Little responded to this cultural change with designs that reflected ranch life, yet carried the sophistication of the city. These boots were for more than just walking. They made a statement, bridging ever-changing worlds with pointed toes and intricate designs.

Dave Little’s Legacy

1970s – 1980s

The passing of Ben Little in 1966 left a legacy to be carried forward by his sons, John and Dave. Under their leadership, the mission of Little’s went beyond mere footwear and become a symbol of Western elegance. Each stitch, a testament to the Little family’s dedication to quality and the relentless pursuit of perfection, set the stage for what would become a symbol of legacy and distinction.

Sharon Little’s Innovation

1980s – 2014

Sharon Little introduced computers to the family business, blending tradition with technology. Dave’s son, Duane, returned to the company and infused fresh energy into Little’s Boots. Together, the Little siblings crafted boots for the new age, still paying homage to their family history and ensuring every pair of Little’s boots was crafted to be cherished.
