The Justin Boots story began in 1879 when H.J. Justin left Lafayette, Indiana to start a new life in Spanish Fort, Texas. Initially a boot repairman, H.J. soon began his own boot company, working out of his home. When a railroad was built in Nocona, Texas in 1889, H.J. moved his family and business there to capitalize on the bigger market opportunity. In 1908, John and Earl Justin came to work for their father, and the company was renamed H.J. Justin & Sons. During 1910, Justin cowboy boots were sold in 26 states, Canada, Mexico, and Cuba for $11 a pair. John, Earl, and Avis took over the business after their father's death in 1918. Then in 1925, the brothers moved the company headquarters to Fort Worth, Texas, where it still resides today. The company made a deal with Acme Brick, another Fort Worth company with pioneering roots, to form Justin Industries in the late 1960's. The Nocona Boot Company, the Chippewa Shoe Company, and rival, Tony Lama Boots were all acquired by Justin during the period of 1981-1990. Berkshire Hathaway, managed by Warren Buffet, purchased Justin Boots in August of 2000.
