Whichever local lore you choose to believe, the bricks of Gastown are the oldest in the city, and its a privileged few who get to work within their walls every day — especially given what they are witnessing lately.DISCOVER OUR HISTORY
Who We Are
The O.K. Boot Corral is situated in Vancouver’s oldest brick building in the heart of Vancouver’s Gastown. This exact location is where Vancouver began in the mid 1800’s.
The management and staff are experienced in boot lore and know how to properly fit a boot, which fits differently to a shoe. Although boots are the main focus in the store there also is a huge selection of hats, belts, buckles, bolo ties and unique souvenirs from the Old West. The owner prides himself in procuring unusual items not normally found in stores.
If you like to step back in time & experience real ‘old fashioned’ western hospitality be sure to visit The O.K. Boot Corral.GET IN TOUCH

What Customers Say About Us
“ Love this place. Was really impressed with the awesome prices. Because of the location I really expected out of reach boutique pricing but I was blown away by the quality, selection, service and prices. I bought the coolest belt but will definitely return. Have my eye on a set of boots - it's only a matter of time. ”Jenson GregoryCustomer
“ A gem in the heart of Gastown with a beautiful selection of western goods, and a friendly and helpful staff.

I'll definitely be coming back. ”Jenson GregoryCustomer
