Aaron Fagan stocks a supply of great, quality footwear.

We’re proud to carry these major lines:


header_qualityHandcrafted in the USA, this line is premium. Over the years, Chippewa products have used only premium raw materials and are hand crafted in USA. To this day, their U.S.-made boots still carry the “Hand Crafted in USA” labels as homage to the men and women that have built the Chippewa brand. We’re proud to carry these products and you’ll be proud to own and wear a pair … we guarantee it!

In the 1950s, The CHIPPEWA® Shoe Manufacturing Company was one of the first boot manufacturers to introduce U.S.-made mountaineering boots with the Italian-made original Vibram® soles. To this day CHIPPEWA® offers Vibram® soles on most models, staying true to their heritage as a leader in outdoor footwear.




We’re proud to carry Thorogood, America’s oldest work boot brand, and confident you’ll appreciate the quality and workmanship:  Handcrafted occupational work and uniform footwear job-fitted for all trades and professions.

THOROGOOD WORK BOOTS and SHOES and have been manufactured by Weinbrenner Shoe Company since 1892 and have become a trusted source for everyday work boots, wellingtons, hiking boots, postal shoes, uniform boots, waterproof boots and insulated boots. A large number of these Thorogood boots and shoes are still made in the U.S.A. at Weinbrenner’s Merrill and Marshfield, Wisconsin factories by highly skilled American workers. The most popular of these USA-made Thorogood styles are from the American Heritage Wedge Sole Collection.


In 1932 Charles Danner opened his bootmaking business risking his future on a stubborn belief that, regardless of the economy, superior craftsmanship mattered. While much has changed since the first Danner boot was made, Danner’s dedication to crafting a superior product has not:

  • Hold a Danner boot in your hand and you’ll notice the hand-crafted precision.
  • Try it on and you’ll feel the difference.
  • Test it against the elements and you’ll appreciate the value of a product that is built to last.

A Danner boot is a mark of unwavering quality. It has been since 1932 and will be for years to come. [Watch the Danner video on Fagan’s home page for more details.]

Aussie Dogs has been in business since 1989 when Chris Watt visited Australia and saw a very basic sheepskin boot and decided he could do better. Chris added a toe piece to the front of the boot … and Aussie Dogs was created. Since that time, top quality and great customer service have been what separates Aussie Dogs from the rest of the sheepskin pack. All Aussie Dog products are made with superior Australian sheepskin and fitted styling, making Aussie Dogs your No. 1 choice in a sheepskin product. Aussie Dogs sheepskin footwear is the oldest continuously-owned sheepskin company in the United States.

Birkenstock USA.

Birkenstock-purpleWith a passion for their products, an appreciation of their heritage and a genuine belief in their benefits, the Birkenstock business is a reflection of quality products that are comfortable, unique, timeless and respectful of the world around us. In a word: Transcendent. 

Beautiful, comfortable, quality products!

Birkenstock USA began more than 40 years ago, when  founder, Margot Fraser, had a dream of sharing the comfort and health benefits of Birkenstock footwear. A few years earlier, while visiting a German resort, she had tried on her first pair and was extremely impressed at how good they felt. From there, Margot learned that the original Birkenstock-contoured footbed was invented and manufactured in Germany by Konrad Birkenstock in 1897. In fact, the Birkenstock family has been shoemakers for over 230 years — more than two centuries of creating and perfecting a tradition of walking comfort.

In 1966, Margot began importing Birkenstock footwear from Germany in small amounts and, thus, Birkenstock USA was born. The business grew every year and thousands of satisfied customers asked for more styles so they could wear their Birkenstock footwear in more places.
