1952 - Jerry Levin
In 1952 Mr. Sidney's son, Jerry Levin, our CEO, expanded Lebo's by adding a dancewear department. This provides a complete line of ballet, tap, jazz, clogging and square dance products which includes tights, leotards, shoes, taps and accessories for all the dancer's needs.
In 1963, Jerry propelled Lebo's to prominence as a national distributor and manufacturer of dance costumes through its Colorama catalog. Our logo "If it's dancewear, it's Lebo's" says it all. Jerry founded the Lebo's "Barbette" label with a full line of dance shoes and dancewear products which today is a recognizable name brand across North America and in Europe.
Jerry went a step further in 1964 by adding a western wear department to satisfy the needs of local equestrians and farmers. Our motto "We sell everything but the horse" accompanied the addition of many new products from saddles, bridles, and vet supplies, to riding attire for both the western and English rider. Lebo's Boot Hill "Where the toughest boots in the world lie here" stocks every type of boot imaginable from the exotic skin cowboy boot to the steel toe waterproof work boot.
