Cultured Cowboy Continues Your Western Dress Boot Tradition
in Handmade Quality

Take yourself back a few years. In the 80's & 90s, suede Western boots were in every store. People wore them because they were easy to break in. Soft on your feet. We liked the texture. And if they were good boots, still gave you lateral support. (They didn't break over the sides because better bootmakers had pride in those handcrafted heel counters of trimmed & skived saddle leather - and the arches were fitted well, held in place with pegs & nails - The heels were solid leather that made it easy to recap with the rubber bottom under that leather, rather than a hollowed plastic or air-blown heel. - It's the more intensive parts you can't see which make all the "feel" difference in the world!) 

  Even then, some were cheaper knockoffs of the good stuff. Yet, we would spend half a week to a full week's salary on our favorite well made boots. You too can still have your dream boots made. And they still only create an investment of half to a week's wages.  (for boots that can support you many many years) Cowhide suedes are much more stain resistant & durable for boots than pigsuede leathers. (Although pig makes fine garments, & hairbows due to lighter oz weights.) 

We took these pictures just before we shipped these handmade suede boots to the owner. This boot beautifully gives highlights of darker & lighter black as the knap of the suede leather reflects the light. (Just glints of dark steel gray.) The gentleman wanted this special toe. From the "oldie goldie" days of Hollywood feature films, our cowboy heroes wore this toe. And it has to be completely made by hand over special lasts. With this premium black suede chap & boot leather, the particular thickness of the leather used is important to achieve the look we want, and still not tear through in the manufacturing process. This is why only the best craftsmen are allowed to work this toe.

  Cultured Cowboy loves to share hopes, to make dreams come true. More than the money, when you see those huge smiles, when you listen to the real life stories behind dreams, when you know you had a small part in making life more valuable for people - That's what drives us!

You probably found this page through "Google" or "Bing" or a friend's referral. We're proud your here today! Because Cultured Cowboy has a somewhat mature audience with 70% of our boot sales, we continue to have requests from people who have worn  "traditional Western Dress boots" for years & years. You love the feel of a boot, but as people approach ages of 50's to 90's, there is more concern for total body support. What yer finding in most stores are production boots made for the "college age" feet.  Relax & Worry No More! You have NOW found the quality you need for the comfort & protection you deserve.

Some of you admire the look of the traditional Western Dress boot. Some of you appreciate the break-in comfort of the boot's sole system. The properties of better leathers better suit your needs.  Your understanding of prestige is high.  Handmade suede boots are worn with confidence.  It's true - Clothes and boots do make the man! Your boots can be great conversation starters, and genuine confidence builders. 

Today, cowboy boots are used for "campus" dress boots, as well as in entertainment environments. The variety of leathers available for the boot uppers allow more functionality for you. Tan suede, even reds, blues, pinks and purples can be used! 

 Many of you have owned these sorts of quality boots for well over 20 years! But, If this is your first pair, once you wear them for a time, you'll decide to stick with handmade boots for at least a few colors and/or styles.  

Suede boots are scratch resistant, thus they hold their appearance well. If after years, ya get a shiny place from rubbing on the heel from driving yer truck or sportscar, just a light sandpapering will bring back that knapp! But ya can't go kicking sharp objects. And don't use a side grinder! 

The leather selected is both resilient & pliable; tanned correctly to mold to your feet in short time. Those glove leather linings work with the properties of the outer skins to offer luxurious feel along with durability. And - the inner boot linings add to the overall stability & strength of your design. 

All leather has nuance and character. The boot maker will do their best to balance the look and colors. And the direction of the grain must also be considered. It usually takes a hide from the back, or shoulders of a cow, (The more expensive per square inch cuts - less prone to stretching out of shape, rolling, bunching, or other problems associated with less expensive belly leathers.) to accomplish all this attention to detail.   In the process of making your boots, belts and wallets can be matched from the extra pieces of matching hide.

With the extra details taken all along, it's no wonder the larger production companies don't offer these boots at this time. A much higher price is paid for such consideration by custom boot makers, so that they get only the best balanced hides to make your custom boots. And because of that "demand" pricing, only the best bootmakers will attempt to make 'em.  (Changes in the availability of skilled craftsmen have also influenced mass production decisions.) 

Cultured Cowboy needed to re-think our expectations, due to the percentages of our special make-up requests. SO we have. We'll offer our customs so that you have choice for more durable linings, of the finest sweat resistant glove leathers, real stacked leather heels, for support and distribution of the weight pressures of landing every step, and leather piping to properly allow the whole boot to flex as a cowboy work boot should. These are just a few of the benefits you'll have with these "old school" boots. 

In the midst of change, and prayer, We got a call from a custom bootmaker who had been personally building the American Alligator boots for Rodney Ammons, (Rodney has retired his "Ammons Boots"), and for Classic Lucchese, among other smaller designers. Due to a hurricane that rip-snorted through TX, he has room for Cultured Cowboy's clients too.  (And we've made a place for him.)  * New News: We recently had to get a larger facility! * Deliveries are NOW back to normal! Justin time for you. 

SO, if you're interested, please continue reading. This is probably not a waste of your time, if you're curious in some finer points of boots.

[ Article Continued Below the boot pics. ]   Enjoy! 


Cultured Cowboy is proud to offer our caliber of Quality Western Dress boots. 

Wearing this boot might not be for every occasion. Yet we all sometimes need fun and adventure in our lives.

It's been psychologically proven in University studies, that taking time & energy & "treats" for you will serve you well.
It balances creativity with our everyday "trudgery". 

Handmade Western Dress Boots

The boots are cut generously in size. They allow comfortable room for your arches. Until they break-in, they will slip on your heels. ( In fact they are always going to slip a little, the design is different than a short quarter shoe, so the slipping will not rub blisters on your heels. See the next paragraph too.) 

Although a "cowboy boot" is one of the first things you look for, when dressing for cowboy events, people that wear Western dress boots don't always wear them just to look like cowboys. The arch support and quality craftsmanship allow us to go all day without sore feet and aching backs or legs. As you walk, Western style boots pump air around your feet, which aids in dissipation of moisture, and even more comfort for you. This is why you do want some slippage on those heels.

The older I get, the more I appreciate better boots. 

Proper foot care today will pay tremendous dividends in all your years to come. Cheap made shoes create all sorts of problems years from now. And soft bottom tennis shoes, designed for active sports, were never made to wear all day.

Consider this high quality footwear for your wife too. Especially during the aging years, the bones of your feet will maintain only as well as you allow. Lack of arch support, cramming a foot in a shoe or boot, that lacks support underneath, or flexibility in your movement - either can add to falling foot bones, bunions, permanently.

Ladies sizes: Narrow A, Med B, or Wide C
5 - 10,11

I see hundreds of feet that have the lateral metatarsals splayed outward, the ligaments that are supposed to hold them in place are strained and stretched, or have torn. Your feet hurt. You wear footwear with little support, flat, athletics, or with an orthotic device

Wearing footwear that's too large because your foot doesn't have the range of movement it used to have? This too can add to problems of the foot sliding too far forward and creating everything from ingrown toenails to deformed toes. 
Talk with us about boot options that end this problem too.


Imagine, if you need smooth leather boot, having the foot made of your color choice. Black military (shiny), black oil pull-up (oiled black), or sometimes we can find a distressed black too. 

If you want a wedding boot, or a boot to wear on stage while reciting your poetry, imagine how pleased you'll be as an entertainer as these boots add to your cheers & ovations! Your audience will recognize the Handmade X-Toe from Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and Tom Mix! 

 

 

 

So, here are more pictures of the handmade versions we can have built for you.

First, you'll feel the soft hand of the boot leather. Still less stretchy while softer on your feet than most cowhide side leathers. You can choose a top of a contrasting color, or a conservative match, or black suede as shown. The pull tab matches here, yet could contrast matching the custom stitching.

We chose to carefully secure the leathers without a top vamp stitch. This is the way Larry Mahan's were made, back in "the day". 


And with the black sole stitching, the whole look is a very appealing  rather striking pattern
for complementing suits, jeans, or casual wear. 

Handmade pointed X toe with single row sole stitching
is shown. 

 

 

Yes, we can have this boot made with a traditional Goodyear Trucker sole
if you prefer! 

It's hard to see here, but there is a slight slope to the angle of your heels. This helps most people develop long term pro-active wear patterns for your ankles & knees. 

 

 

Deep dip tops with fancy pulls. Our boot industry's finest Prime Leather shaped sole shown. (Goodyear or Vibram soles available) Notice the quality glove leather linings, and know there is the extra heel slip leather inside, the soft leather heel pad under your heel, and the lemonwood pegs through the entire sole to hold your arch supports from any slipping. 

Look how tight the heel counters, heel rands and heel base fit together for even more lateral support. When you hold the boot by the heel counter, you'll immediately know why these do not roll over to the outside like so many boots tend to do. This inner counter must be made of the best leather to withstand the rigors of tons of pressure you will exert as you move, doing what you do. 

We can do this styling in an all-over brown or tan, bright colors, or 2-tone too!  

Add initials, brands, dates, in the tops, or scallops, extra deep tops, Special calf widths, Change the heels from 1" to 2 3/4 inch tall, or toe styling to your preference. (Some options will add to the base price above.) (Unusually Specialty sized lasts will be added to the price of your first pair, and marked with you name for future boots) 

 

You'll notice the extra heel slip pad on the rear of the shaft, the smooth joining of this into the inner heel counter, the sanded inner side seams, and the clinched pegs, pounded to hold in place a long time without working into your socks! 

 

Soles are stitched and can be returned for any re-soles down the road, by the maker. 

Compare this quality to any!  You'll find these a bargain at our low introductory price of :    Only $479.99 per pair.  

Available in almost any sizes, and widths:  
Ladies 5 - 11 Narrow, med, wide, or  Men's:
B,   8-12, 13
D,   6-12, 13, 14, 15, 16
E,   8-12, 13
EE,  6-12, 13, 14, 15
EEE,  8-12, 13, 14
Some 4E on request

  
Custom Measurements Available too.

OK, Look below - See the angle inward from the center of your boot? Look at the bottom of your feet. They do the same! (We just walk with toes out so our gait is centered. I had to lean the boots on each other to look "cool" for this pic! )

Thought ya might enjoy a few more views! Notice the angle, as well as the point of this toe. See how ya get the look you want, yet with this build, it's not sticking 4 inches past your toes! This last has the shape of your feet in it's construction.  I know Black Suede is hard to see detail. Yet, we wanted to show you the double rows of pegging, holding the guts of your arch in place.  Yes, there is a hump in the bottom of the arch throat - where it's supposed to be! 

Continuation:

How can I justify why I should value the investment of a “best” handmade, not better, handcrafted or a standard production boot.  Should I trust they will make a difference in my life?   Dream boots? 

Many companies talk a lot about a lot of features they “do” with their products. Many of them could make ordinary sound great because they pay thousands for marketing!  Let’s look at some of the benefits, rather than just features, (assuming the highest quality materials are used, depending on the intended purpose for your wear).

     There are boots, and then there are boots!  Your Cultured Cowboy Boots are handmade of the finest materials and with the careful craftsmanship of certainly one of  the best bootmakers in Texas.  With more experience in crafting top class American Alligator custom footwear, (Probably the hardest material to form, to skive, to materialize into impressive and comfortable boots.), you can believe this expert is picky enough and proud enough to make any of your boots as impressive as any you’ve ever collected.

For an avid Western boot wearer, to spend up to a week’s wage is a normal thing to do. For two weeks wages, ya gotta think about it. Ya gotta choose it over other alternatives. JB Stetson first priced his Western hats at a month’s wages as he began his company. People gladly paid it because the value received was worth much more than their investment. I promise the value received, the comfort, the status, the quality from Cultured Cowboy Handmade Boots will be felt long after the investment in durability has long been forgotten. Today, at Quarrels Electric, one client showed me his I-Phone pic of a snakeskin boot he purchased over 25 years ago. They were his graduation present to himself. He's taken care of them, and still wears them! 

I was asked by a professional client, “How can a person give to others without feeling like my glass is even half full? When I give all the time there’s sometimes nothing left to give.” Without some renewal, we can’t. Each of us can make a list of ways we could renew our spirit & strength. One way for many is to put on something “best” and feel good about deserving to own it.

Possible Values:
1)When I know I am well dressed, I have an increased confidence in my ability and therefore I accomplish better.
2)When others see that I am well dressed, others better respect what I can offer them.  They “see” proven worth in my ability.
3)When I have longer term investments in quality, I feel more secure. I am actually investing, not spending.
4)My feet feel better, and legs, and back, from better support offered by better footwear. I’m not tired, nor tiring.
5)When I wear the best, I know people appreciate my smile. It is easier to smile, and I feel more generous toward them.
6)As I somewhat “spoil” myself, I realize I do deserve some of the better “tools” for my life. I can more easily fill other’s needs, especially family, when I feel refreshed myself.
7)My time with my “honey” is valuable. I want to feel special when with her/him, and to know I want their time with me to feel special too.
8)Wearing the best, I better understand how others will be enhanced by their wearing their best too. I can encourage them.
9)I can choose footwear that is appropriate for my intended use: Better leather bottoms for dancing, best rubber soles for riding, or working where slip resistance is important. Either impressive dress leather / exotic uppers, or oil /barnyard acid resistant leathers.  And feel good, either way!
10)I am choosing to live my life, rather than reacting to how others try to choose how they want me to live.

Cultured Cowboy, (Chuck Taylor) has been designing footwear, based on fulfilling benefits from thousands of long term boot wearers.  “Way back when”, (1984), the original Dan Post educated me on finer qualities of boot materials. From there, Justin, Tony Lama, Nocona, taught me differences of handcrafted and handmade. Ariat introduced me to better “performance boots”, and Twisted X has carried these forward. Ammons taught me that “spoil me” quality is sometimes more valuable than giving more disposable products.

Nothing makes you feel better than giving your best to those you love. Although relationships may change, children move away from home, styling may shift, respect as someone who has given their best becomes a hallmark of how you are remembered.

What I hear every week: You are requesting, “Where are the boots I used to wear?”  “How come, these aren’t holding up like my boots from 15 yrs ago?” “My MD recommended a Western boot rather than …  Yet, the stuff I’ve been wearing is not helping.” Well yer right, I did buy a Chevy Silverado for $16,800 brand new & loaded in 1988. Yeah, they're 70,000+ now. These boots seem more a bargain when I remember that! 

 Cultured Cowboy is working very hard to make your boot dreams come true again!  Major boot companies are becoming more set up for production for the masses! So finding a “real” custom bootmaker for you excites us!  I too am where you are. I too am again wearing a pair made for me. I too am taking my time to encourage you, that these are worth more than you ever expected from boots.

 My great friends at Justin/Tony Lama told me that my percentage of custom requests per production boots were out of line for their comfort.  LET ME MAKE CLEAR – I love these companies. They just are not making what more discerning wearers are requesting. Their focus is shifting as they see fit.

Why are Cultured Cowboy Customs sometimes 1/3 less than other custom boots?
1 (We’re trading ad costs for your testimonials.) One of the preferred conditions of our making these custom boots for you is we request you take a few minutes to teach others about your experiences with these boots.
2) There are not multiple layers of management and sales, and design, and office staff to pay. We can still be OK, with a reasonable margin of profit.  We’d rather pass a good program forward with you, than make it affordable only to the “rich & famous”.
3) For us, the pride of serving you as you should be served is more important than the bragging rights of most $ per pair profits.
4)  The pricing will have to go up, so take advantage of the generosity and skills available to you today. Invest smart - right now! 
5) We are a growing new division of a 45 yr old company, and we're also on a learning curve with suppliers, taxes, labor, insurance, and such as... 

 -  I love my own example:  I’ve been wearing boots since 17, and I’m now 62. The pair made for me only took 40 minutes to break in. In a couple wears, there was some break in “squeaking” because I chose a tire rubber sole against the handmade stacked leather heels.  About 20 hours into my wearing them, this went away. Just a matter of “patience” to have exactly what I dreamed of wearing! Real stacked leather heels relieve the pounding my feet take while walking on concrete based floors all day.   

*** New October 2019 UpDate: Because the toe box is leather, (breathes) - not plastic or fiber, nor sweat inducing, and I alternate boots, that aggravating foot fungus I've had for years has all but gone!  (MY Thorlo Socks helped dissipate moisture too) (Yes we offer Thorlos too) 

 God Bless the ability to get boots made like I became accustomed to, been spoiled from, again! My back feels 40 yrs younger when I wear these boots.

- My second wife, (sorry ‘bout that), is still wearing the Burgundy Ostrich boots which were made for her in the mid 1990’s. 25 years;  only $2.17 per month.  Fractions of the price of an Exotic boot with lesser quality “guts” inside.  $650 was a fair price in 1993. (It’s 2019 now)

This same maker makes your Cultured Cowboy Custom boots. Yes, he makes for other major brands. Especially, coordinating with another leather artist with many of the intricate hand tooled boots combined with ostrich & alligator, you have awed in past. Beautiful boots are of his reputation & repertoire!

Cultured Cowboy is especially honored to have been approached by such a friend, such a quality connoisseur, who holds tremendous caring for his wearers, a respect for the industry, and ability to back up your extreme comfort desires!

If you have heard of, seen, or tried on Ammons or Classic Lucchese, or awed some of the finest quality Western boots in magazines or catalogs, you know the capability and proficiency and comfort I’m trying to describe.

Many older adults have issues with feet, knees, hips and back. Like a house or a hotel, the foundation is where support begins!  Even Scriptures advise about building on sand or stone. 3 Little Pigs chose sticks or bricks.

I had a quite famous celebrity ask if he were crazy for spending the investment of a pair of these boots! As I told him:  The average person will spend a week’s salary on a pair of well designed boots without batting an eye. “OK, box ‘em up!”   So, I recently read where the average manufacturing position paid well over $35.000.00 or $673.00 per week, plus bonuses, plus plus plus…   Do you really want to wear footwear mostly made by $40.00 per month labor, and with parts that profit the production lines rather than you? When your happiness and health depend on a great foundation upon which to stand? 

With our “Trucker Boots”, we researched “tire rubber” soles and found exactly what you want with Goodyear’s newest best diamond treaded ball area. The remainder of your soles are slightly grooved for safe dispersal of liquids from under your feet, while still retaining a quality that will not track debris as “lug” soles are known to do. These soles are made for climbing onto ladders, tractors, barn roofs and stirrups.

With our leather soles, we use the best Prime Sole Leather available. This allows your feet to further mold into the bottoms of your boots. Dancing is best in leather soles. And executive footwear is almost always prime leather. 3/4 welting includes superior support for your entire body. You can recognize it by 1) the welt does go 3/4 of the entire length of the boot. 2) rows of nails and/or pegs, holding the inner supports in place. 3) more of an angular fit, just as your feet are naturally made. 4) a deeper throat area to hold this support without pressuring your feet. 

Your outsoles work perfectly with the arch, ankle and total foot bottom support built into each pair. Your boots are welted so resoles are available. Notice the brass nailing in Goodyear tire soles, (Or lemonwood pegs in leather) and rounded bottom under your arches. This takes an experienced craftsman to get just right. It allows the arch support you need to be held in place properly. This construction has been a sign of quality since modern boots began.  I’ll admit that there might be a slight sound as you walk till the boot breaks in,  but it doesn’t take long for that to happen. It’s the rubber matching into the stacked leather heels.

{Sidebar – Your boots can be handmade with a top quality leather sole, or a mini-rib Vibram sole. The mini-rib Vibram  is a fully grooved, very flexible, thinner bottom of tire rubber, a popular alternative to the Goodyear described in our "trucker boots", for jobs requiring a lot of walking. The quality of our leather soles will make this boot as fine a Western Dress boot as is made.}

Shown in an R toe, you can choose from R, (Med round), J toe (more pointed), U toe(roper), or from several square toe versions. The toe is boxed properly and lasted by hand as your boot is built.

Pretty much, unless you specify differently, the most popular combination lasts are used so fit is impeccable! We have ability to special order difficult last sizes to use for feet that are either more discriminating, or just hard to fit.  

Notice there is some relief incorporated over the top of your arch. When you feel that “Plop” into your boot as you pull it on, you can rest assured that the slippage is proper, and does not restrict your foot’s blood circulation by pressing too tightly on that vein which crosses over the top of your foot. Great for all day wear.  (Less swelling of your feet.)

Best Glove leather linings (1.wick away foot moisture, 2.without eating socks), are throughout the entire inner side of your boot. In fact, it’s the leather which you can’t see, inside the boot’s inner workings, which makes the difference in excellence and ordinary. 

 A softer inner heel pad is placed under your heel to help dissipation of concussion.  By the way, Outer heels are real stacked leather. Why? The layers of leather adjust and adapt to your way of gait better than the non-moving “reconstituted leather” used in “genuine leather” (ground & glued scraps) advertised by many makers.  If you’ve worn the best before, you understand the difference you’ll feel from your foot bottom all the way through your spine, as everything, (your entire boot design), works together for your benefit.

Your heel counter is a real chunk of leather too. Skived into the lining so you have a smooth transition, attached securely to the heel base through heel rand, this leather gives you lateral support as well as holding your spurs in place as a boot should. None of that “pressed material” or stiffened canvass that mushes over to the outside as the boot gets wet!  If you thought you were the cause of lateral failure, you might be hard on the wear, but it takes better materials to make the whole boot last in comfort for a long time.

Do your toes sweat a lot?  Might be that manmade toe box we don’t use.  Materials that are pre-molded or easy to mold by machine save cost, but will create heat. Not these boots! They’re hand lasted from natural materials which allow heat and sweat to move out of your toes. Pulled across and shaped by expert artisan hands, the toe box forms and maintains the integral shape of your boot’s front.

You want to know my biggest gripe in many boots?  Cotton cord piping covered by a thin layer of plastic sheeting. It breaks at the bends, and my expensive boots need me to take a “Sharpie” pen to recolor & hide the flaws. This piping is supposed to provide smooth transition and some give as you walk/run/work in your boots.  Leather piping is used in your Cultured Cowboy Handmade boots, as a washer to prevent the leathers from wearing each other out in movement. (yes, plastic does this too) Real leather, with the right stitching, allows the proper give & take that allows your leather to move with your movement, and doesn’t easily crack at your ankles. (Keep ‘e conditioned.) Often, if you have ankle rubbing, its caused by the initial stiffness of poor piping and the stitching used at the ankle area.

OK, there’s a part called the “rand”. This is a layer between inner heel & counter, and the heel base of your boot. Here there is a nylon type compound that is used to prevent the heel base from smashing through the upper at the joining of your heel area. (Think of it as similar to the  “cartilage” between your bones.) This dissipates pressures. Didja know, your heel takes a huge pounding every step you take? (2112 average steps in a mile. 160 lb man. 316,800 lbs of pressure repeated. Wow didn’t God do a great wonder in designing the bones & padding in your feet! )  These handmade boots are engineered to be the best of protection, and long term comfort.  

This pounding is why the bottom of your heel base has a slip-resistant “tire rubber” plate placed on the ground surface of the heel base. You hit down on a relatively small area which needs ability to not slip till your foot rolls forward, and to be easily replaceable as that back of your heel cap wears faster than any other part of a boot.

The other manmade material used in your boots is the nylon threading – again, the best in our industry, used throughout your boots. Most people are not particularly picky about the pattern or the stitch color blends. – But now you can be!  We can either computer stitch the tops, or hand stitch the tops for you. Yes, hand stitching will not be as perfect as the computers, but connoisseurs will see the difference.  So you  decide which you prefer!  This model shown has a simple computer stitched top to reduce costs. (We do believe in using technology, when technology makes perfect sense!)

{Sidebar -  Why are most soles sewn with white thread?  Two reasons.  1) Original bootmakers were proud of their handstitching and the white thread showed their quality.  2) White thread cost a few cents less than colors!  (Betcha didn’t figure that one!)    Save money when saving makes sense. Spend money when spending now will save you $$$ over the life of the boot, and when the comfort levels are greatly increased. You can choose white or colored sole stitching. (If ya get the white, a Sharpie Fine point will touch ‘em the color you choose.) Use dark threads on darker dress soles! }

For motorcycle fans, we can do a solid black. And can blend top stitching to match your Harley, Indian, Yamaha, Honda, colors.  This sole and counter and support construction is perfect for riding Iron horses, as well as tractors and horses of flesh & blood!

If you search though this CC Custom Boot grouping, you’ll see a boot of allover shoulder, and one with shoulder foot and cowhide upper for an attractive contrast. Another medium brown shoulder and over time, a few others. Quality is exceptional whichever color or hide you choose.

Yes, we carry some in stock. And stock is building!  But with all the variety available to you, wouldn’t you rather have your pair made to order as you want the specifics to be?   If we have your boots in stock, 3 to 7 days delivery.  If they have to be made… hold onto your hats… only 3 to 10 weeks, depending on your specs!  This is crazy when the average special makeup boot can be 6 to 9 months, isn’t it!  And they are not rushed through!  

Get this… You can make a reasonable deposit of about half, and we’ll get your boots started. The other half, we’ll work with you as you need.

Dealing with a smaller maker, who both cares about you, and retaining a relationship with you, is really important.  And if you’ve been waiting for twice as long as we first promised, (Orders from Fall 2017) it’s because we had more stuff to work through than we imagined. (Imagine that?)  Now, we have our program all ready to go.  We’ll be back in touch! With apologies! And with quality you expect. And now with reasonable delivery times.

Hope this reading has been helpful to you.  After all this, don’t you feel you deserve a pair or two?  Please contact us with any questions or comments, or concerns you might have.  A closet full of custom boots is not for everyone.  But everyone deserves to at least try a pair!     Take a look at the new possibilities below.

Thank You & God Bless You all,
       Chuck & friends.


This pic is from an elephant boot, but shows the leather bottom of a handmade boot.

Lemonwood pegs have the property of swelling as leather shrinks, and shrinking as leather swells. Do keep an eye on keeping the sole occasionally conditioned as well as the top of your boot. 

And the lemonwood pegs, they're to hold your inner arch support from slipping, especially if your riding stirrups, or footpegs. Look at how clean the heel base flows into this Prime Leather sole. (Ya might get a little "squeaking" as the boot breaks in, but it soon stops as all that leather under your heel, for dissipation of concussion, works its way into your individual heel bone/pad structure.)

 

 

  Thought you might like a side view of the inner side (Medial Side) of this boot. 

Notice our typical fancy pull straps.

The leather piping is leather, not vinyl covered string.

Notice the boot is formed to match the arch of a foot. Your heel actually sinks into the heel 1/4 inch more than it appears, and the inner sole/midsole adds another 1/4 inch to the inside height of the fore part of your boot. It's not as steep as it appears.

This particular fit system is done to allow the proper support under your feet. If your feet are supported properly, you probably can eliminate many aches in your legs & back. (Always consult a physician if you have chronic or severe pains. - I am not an MD. I'm a boot wearer & designer.) (This is as good a disclaimer as I can do without adding another couple hundred to your investment for accumulation of atty fees in each state!)

( I had to add something, like that last ( ) to make ya grin! This is a long read! )
