Our Shoemaker’s Heritage: 120 Years of Quality, Tested and Proven.
For most businesses, deciding on a manufacturer is a difficult decision. For us, it was easy. Since 1892, Weinbrenner Shoe Company has been a leading manufacturer and pioneering force in the American footwear industry, initiating many of the significant safety and job-fitted design elements that are common today. As an employee-owned company, Weinbrenner craftsmen work hard to provide hardworking men and women with the best, most comfortable boots and shoes around. They don’t just make any shoes, but the toughest shoes for the toughest jobs. I’m talking about things like firefighter boots. Heat-resistant, slip-resistant, water-resistant, and puncture-resistant, while still allowing the wearer to move in and out of a burning building or blazing wildfire with speed and agility. Today, they continue to innovate by working with the Primal Professional to provide natural-feel shoes in classic styling. Working together, we’ve flipped the dial from heavyweight to lightweight for our designs while paying strict attention to durable construction.
We also work together to provide you with one of the most powerful warranties in the industry. Weinbrenner guarantees the workmanship of every shoe they make for the life of the original outsole (e.g. a shoe that exhibits a manufacturing defect when the outsole is worn down to 25% of its useful life can be returned for a 25% refund). The Primal Professional offers free returns and exchanges, for life. You may return any product purchased on thePrimalProfessional.com as long as the item is clean and unworn/gently worn.
Your Personal Heritage:
It takes a special breed of man to take notice of the Primal Professional. Someone who seeks excellence in both professional career and physical conditioning. Someone who is uninterested in compromising either. Most men compromise. A select few will wear the Primal Professional.
The dream job interview. The big pitch. The first date. The weddings: friends’, families’, and yours. And all the moments in between. Because a primal professional know that true success and happiness come not from the big wins, but from experiencing “flow” in daily life. As you carve your legacy into this world in the years to come, our shoes will be there for you.
Our shoes will be there for you. Right alongside the full-grain leather, 120 years’ shoemaking experience, modern ISO quality control practices, and the ability to replace the soles built into each shoe, we include the essentials of shoe care, complimentary with every pair. Shoe horns to protect the heel counter. Soft high-nap cotton flannel shoe bags to protect the leather from scuffing when you pack for travel. Shoe trees made from aromatic cedar--selected for its fragrance, light weight, resistance to rot, and repellant to pests--to smooth out creases, maintain or restore shoe shape, and draw out moisture.
