Our Story

From the beginning...

After serving in the Army Bill Baker started working with his father in law in the early 1950's in Eugene, Oregon in a custom boot shop and shoe store known as Purkey's Shoes. Bill's brother Dave got out of the Air Force in the early sixties and started helping his brother in the store. When Dave finished with the Air Force, Bill and Dave took the Purkey store and renamed it Baker's Shoes after the two brothers.

After graduating high school and college Dave's son Gene took over the business in 1985 and worked with his cousin and brother to keep the family business growing. After 15 years he improved the store and doubled the footwear selection over time.


After 5 more years he expanded into a furniture store rebuilt it on the inside to stock all the new shoes and to resemble historic Oregon log lodge pine siding throughout the inside of the now 7,800 sq. feet store from the original 1200 square foot storefront that remains today. Baker's carries more than 1,500 shoe and boot styles and clothing in stock.

After 10 years of having a website in 2009 the Baker Family decided to launch a new interactive site with enlarge features, zoom features and custom boot features based on the principles that founded the business. What we believe you will find is an exciting new site on the forefront of its kind even though it is based on our business model from 50 years ago. The ability to make a pair of boots to your exact specifications. Please enjoy our new site and look for weekly specials link on the homepage of our site.
