LaCrosse has a century of know how and the product to prove it. In 1897 LaCrosse opened its doors manufacturing rubber horseshoes, quickly transitioned into overshoes, rubber boots. Next came jungle boots, pac boots, tennis shoes, boating shoes, moonboots, hip boots, waders, leather boots, mining boots and many more… And through it all LaCrosse has learned many lessons that have contributed to a century of experience in crafting high quality footwear.
Alpha sparks the revolution of rubber boots. During his studies at the University of Notre Dame, Albert Funk helped to pioneer the development of synthetic rubber, also known as neoprene. He would later partner with his brother Arthur, becoming owners of the LaCrosse Rubber Mills, where they would revolutionize the rubber boot industry with the introduction of ALPHA, the very first neoprene lined rubber boot.
