size 10 D, ready to ride! Here's a rare find, and no
longer available for a long time.
This pair has been part of the Cultured Cowboy
Museum Collection for many years.
Made in Nocona Texas, USA
I near retirement, perhaps it's time to pass a few
items for others to appreciate. This boot was
handcrafted in the heyday of Nocona Western
Boots. It is their finest craftsmanship, as
you can appreciate from the pictures below.
You may know that the direction of management of
Nocona Boots has radically changed.
box. Never sold. New condition. Original tag. Been
in a protective glass case. When they were offered,
I believe it was in limited edition. Today, the
anteater is protected by law. And rightly so. This
was made for Cultured Cowboy as part of the old
Nocona Boot Dealer's Choice program.
Want to own a true piece of Western legacy?
you deem yourself a boot connoisseur, WE look
forward to passing these to you, as the next
Anteater Boots - Diamond pattern is quite
prominent. Easily recognizable. This boot is made
with some of the finest glove leather linings. These
linings work with the outer exotic leather to make a
strong structure for many years of service. Definitely dress boots, the
leather soles are of the best combination of
durability & flexibility. This Nocona anteater
will feel similar to a fine lizard boot to wear, if
we are to compare. Very supportive arch support
These boots, at the time
of manufacture, did not use any endangered animals.
Sometimes nature & fate and changes in habitat
make a difference in life cycles. We thank those who
care enough to try to preserve our life species! Good ecosystems
depend on not wasting any part of the animal.
Cultured Cowboy has held
a long term relationship with Nocona, Justin and
Tony Lama Divisions of Justin Industries. Although
all three brands are owned by one company, Justin
Brands had left each division unique, and at this
time, all three maintained their fit like they always
had. Nocona is a little
tighter in the instep and heel than TL or
If you are familiar
with vintage Nocona Boots, you understand the value that
handcrafted boots can provide. If Nocona exotic
boots are new to you, you have to try them to
understand how truly great they feel. The boots are
cut generously in size. They allow comfortable room
for your arches. Until they break-in, they will slip
on your heels.
People that wear
Western dress boots do not always wear them to look
like cowboys. The arch support and quality
craftsmanship allow us to go all day without sore
feet and aching backs or legs. You see a lot of
national ads in magazines with young adults wearing
their Nocona Boots and shorts. (I've been doing this
for over 50 years. Guess I've been ahead of the
fashion scene! OK, admit it. You probably wore your
shorts, Nocona's and trophy buckle without a shirt
too, didn't you?)
Why choose an Exotic
Exotic boots are a
tool. These Anteater Boots are an investment. They make a statement. Not everybody can
afford them. Not everybody has guts enough to wear
them. Comfort combines with class. And class always
works. Spoil yourself!
Now, you probably
don't wear an expensive boot every day. So, make a
nice place on a mantle, or in a corner of an office,
perhaps a display case to display your boots, as decor, when you aren't
wearing them. Famous people do this all the time.
And, keeping exotic footwear in a closed, damp
closet is never a good idea.
Sizes: In choosing a men's Nocona Boot size, choose
the size you most often wear in your dress shoes.
(wear a 10D, get a 10D)
was Dealer's Choice? Dealer's
Choice boots were available in a lot of
sizes...That's great! But know that many of the toe
and heel combinations, along with the size range,
means that they made the boots as your orders were placed.
On customized boots, Cultured Cowboy usually bills a deposit
around the time of your order and the balance at the
time of shipping. This seems fair and keeps cash
flow circulating. Depending on time of year and out-of-stock
status, delivery can be 1 week to 36 weeks. ( We can
let you know more about delivery times right after
your orders are placed. ...(See why we don't have
