The Company presently known as Wellco Enterprises, Inc. began operations in 1941 under its original name, Wellco Shoe Corporation.
In 1965, as a result of unsatisfactory performance of previous Army combat footwear in the jungles of Vietnam, the Army adopted Wellco-Ro-Search technology for the manufacture of its hot-weather boots, and this product thus became known as the “Vietnam Boot.”
Today Wellco continues to be innovative in footwear and continues its excellence in quality, comfort, and design. In the battlefield, nowhere is performance more critical. And when it comes to footwear, no company knows this better than Wellco. From the jungles of Vietnam to the mountains of Afghanistan, Wellco boots have left their prints in the world’s most hostile conditions.
As our best and bravest return home, Wellco is guided by one simple directive: There and Back. Translated this means delivering the same advanced footwear solutions our warriors have come to trust no matter where the fight takes them–be it a rocky bluff in the Hindu Kush or a dark alley in the inner city.
Please be advised that Wellco boots are drop shipped directly from the manufacturer, and there will be a delay in shipment. UPS Air shipments will take an additional 1-2 business days to process. If the manufacturer is backordered, LA Police Gear will try to obtain and provide the manufacturer’s ETA.
