A growing &
is hand crafting a boot the way your great
grand-dad expected them to be made. Cultured
Cowboy was introduced to them through one of our
international suppliers of exotic skins, at the
Dallas International WESA trade show. I
asked who might do smaller quantities in high
quality traditional boots? I needed a special
cut python boot for one of our customers.
He replied, "Fenoglio".
"Never heard of them. Sounds Italian",
I said. He described them as excellent to work
with, skilled, and a smaller family owned
bootmaker. Turns out they moved operations
into the old Nocona Boot factory in Nocona
TX. They had a booth about 500 feet down
the aisle from his, so "onward cowboy"
glad I did. I saw a polo boot in their
booth and told them the members of SASS needed a
quality " shooters boot " under the
costing of $600 - $700 by most custom boots.
Together, we drew up designs and it took almost
a year, but these re-enactment boots are now
available at a moderate price.
bootmaker has been doing an excellent job on
crepe soled boots like the old Justin
Technocrepes. But he's now many months out on
taking orders. So asking about crepe
soles, Fenoglio knew the Vibram Crepe Rubber
soles and produced both round toe and cutter toe
models for us to try. Now you too can see
them. We're impressed!
Rough stock riders have needed a boot engineered
for their sport. Fenoglio to the rescue
again! Rough out leathers with that cutter
toe & a heel made to stay in the saddle,
hold a spur, and a good inner heel counter to
bring it all together for you. - Excellent
training boot for pro-horsemen (& ladies)
leather lined Western boots carry comfort through arch
support that is seldom matched by even the best
technologies of this day. (If interested,
Cultured Cowboy has found various selections
of thin to medium thickness silicone based insoles that will add cushion,
and adjust for arch height, if
you need. - $14.99 - $39.99 pair. Call us &
we can discuss your orthotic needs.) Cushion comfort
when you want it, on top
of proper arch support - Oh My!
offers to build your choice of their toe
styles - Wide Square, Cutter, or Roper Rounded. and heels
of Super Roper to Cowboy height, on many styles.
When customizing a style we need to let you know
the time is about 4 to 9 months. On more common
combinations, 2 to 5 months is usual.
Cultured Cowboy does stock several models in
many sizes. ( a few days to a week delivery )
will also supply exotic styling. Check out the
cutter toe Grey elephant - what a great choice
! If you have a dream boot, call us and
let's have a fun conversation. Fenoglio
actually hand selects your leathers, blends the top
& stitching for some wonderfully delightful
boots fit true to most shoe sizes. Ladies need to go
down a half size.
