Little Joe’s Boots: A Piece of History in Oklahoma City’s Stockyard City

Nestled within the vibrant atmosphere of the Oklahoma City Historical Stockyard City sits Little Joe’s Boots, a longstanding establishment that has been serving the community since 1950. Owned by Joe Bass since 1983, Little Joe’s Boots has become a staple in the area, offering not only quality merchandise but also a personalized shopping experience that keeps customers coming back generation after generation.

In a recent interview with Joe Bass, affectionately known as “Little Joe,” he shared some insights into the history and unique culture of his business. One interesting tidbit is the serendipitous connection between the previous owner, also named Joe, and himself. “I actually bought it from a Little Joe. His name was Joe Medina, and I have always been known with my family as Little Joe. So, it was meant to be. Two Joes,” he chuckled.

What sets Little Joe’s Boots apart is not just its longevity but also its deep-rooted commitment to its customers. “I think the uniqueness would be family-owned, small business, and probably the quality of merchandise we carry,” Joe explained. “And kind of the help we offer customers on a real personalized level.” This personalized touch has fostered lasting relationships, with Little Joe’s now serving third-generation customers.

Beyond the confines of his store, Joe also plays an active role in the community, serving on the Stockyard City Main Street Board. Despite being relatively new to the position, he finds value in gaining insight into the inner workings of the community. “It gives a better sense of what is actually going on within the community and behind the scenes to look at Main Street and how many facets there are to a small community like this,” he noted.

When asked about the benefits of being part of the Stockyards City Main Street district, Joe emphasized the sense of camaraderie and the opportunity for growth. “It’s kind of like a small-town feel. Everybody is really nice to deal with,” he remarked. “There are a lot of things we have accomplished as a small little community down here in Southwest Oklahoma City.”

For those looking to experience the heart of Oklahoma City, Joe believes Stockyards City is the place to be. “It is one of the probably oldest communities here in Oklahoma City and probably close to how it originally was than anything else,” he expressed. “So, I think people coming into Oklahoma City to see if they want to get a true feeling of Oklahoma City, this is a great place to shop and spend your money and to eat. It is a great place to do business in.”

As Little Joe’s Boots continues to thrive in the Oklahoma City’s Stockyards City, it remains a testament to the enduring spirit of community and tradition in the area. With its rich history, personalized service, and commitment to preserving its roots, Little Joe’s Boots stands as a beacon of authenticity in an ever-changing world.
