Trav’s Outfitter to Acquire Loeffler Shoes

It is with great joy and sadness that I am announcing my retirement from the safety shoe industry after 60-plus years of selling shoes.

I want to thank each and every one of you for allowing me to be of service to your company and to your employees.

Though passing the torch can be difficult, I believe that by giving Trav’s Outfitter the next opportunity in your safety program, you’ll have the same commitment and service for years to come that I hope you’ve had with Loeffler Shoes.

Trav’s Outfitter has been serving the Upper Midwest since 2003, offering quality footwear and an unsurpassed selection. As the experts in the shoe business, they work hard to deliver value and build positive relationships with their customers with every interaction. Their sales staff works diligently with each customer to ensure a guaranteed fit and provide the best retail experience possible.

Travas Uthe, owner, and president of Trav’s Outfitter, said, “We are excited to carry on the history of great service to Jim’s long-time customers. We know that over his 60 years in the safety footwear business, he has created and earned many strong relationships with his customers, and we’re looking forward to continuing those relationships.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to connect with me personally at 651-771-3833 or, as I’ll be here for the seamless transition with you and Trav’s Outfitter.

Again, on behalf of myself and my wife, Cheryl, we want to thank you for all of your business over the years, and we wish you continued success.
