Brian’s Boot & Shoe Co. has been in Sheridan since 1978, owned and operated by Brian McMahan. Brian has been doing boot and shoe repairs for 40+ years and the repair business is big at the store! Lauren McMahan, Brian’s daughter working alongside him at the store, stated that “people come from all over to get their boots resoled and re-heeled. It’s an industry that barely exists anymore”. Brian’s repair area is in the back of the store and is always busy.
Also, a valuable asset to Brian’s Boot & Shoe Co. is Halen McMahan, Brian’s son. Halen and Lauren work full time at the store helping their customers find boots and shoes that work best for them. When talking with the two it was apparent how much they care for their store and the patrons who trust them with their beloved footwear. When asked what her favorite shoe brand is, Lauren quickly answered, “Dansko. Hands down. They are comfortable! We specialize in supportive footwear here and Danskos are some of the best”. Halen added that “People come into the store desperate for comfort and support. We care a lot about our customers and getting them the right shoe and fit for them, including inserts, is a priority. We make sure to help find the best choice for the customers and we really are experts in the field.” Both Halen and Lauren mentioned how much they love their customers and how loyal they are to Brian’s Boot & Shoe Co. You can tell by how many people there are in the store almost constantly, especially on weekends and holidays.
Brian and the whole crew at the store are helpful and knowledgeable about all things footwear and carry a wide range of accessories, insoles, and more! If you’re looking for work boots, western boots, casual shoes, kids’ shoes, hunting shoes, hiking shoes, and any other shoe under the sun, stop in and see them!
