The Dehner Boot Company started in Junction City, Kansas, USA, in 1875. They moved bootmaking operations to Wichita, Kansas, in 1914. After some changes to company ownership, the company moved to Omaha, Nebraska, in 1929. From its beginnings the Dehner Company has been working non-stop to provide the finest quality riding boots, patrol boots, military boots and leather products available. Not only have they succeeded in creating a global following, but The Dehner Company continues to build every boot and shoe by hand, just as was done over a century ago.
The Dehner company is currently headed up by Jeff Ketzler, great-grandson of Carlton Dehner who founded the company in the late 1800's. Jeff is the third Ketzler to man the helm, preceded by his father Donovan Ketzler and his grandfather Harold Ketzler.
