The Milam - Lux-Black Calf
We are master bootmakers and have meticulously designed every aspect of this boot. Luxurious black premium calf graces the exterior while prime leathers are used to construct all other aspects of this boot.
We use no synthetic material and every part of it is handmade (which is why this boot will last a lifetime). These details are important.
Lux-calf interior for glove-like comfort. Full leather insole (for breathability and custom shaping to your foot). Uppers are dragon corded and 12" high. Heel is leather stacked 1 1/2”. Soles are hand pegged with lemonwood. Reinforced pulls.
Width is D (normal) and the sizing is the industry standard (same as your shoes). Wider boot is EE. For any reason if the fit is not perfect we pay to ship it back and send you another size.
We can customize your boots with Initials on the pull straps for an additional cost: Add 2 or 3 initials to your pull straps to make your boots uniquely custom.
These boots are dedicated to Ben Milam. He was was a leader in the Texas Revolution. He supported the Mexican Revolution of 1821, but was subsequently imprisoned in Mexico during the early part of the Texas Revolution. He broke out of prison and rode a horse to Texas until it died of exhaustion. He then crawled his way to Goliad where he was found by Texian soldiers. Having been brought back to health, he rallied the Texian army to move forward on the battle of San Antonio. He was shot and killed during the assault by a sniper from the Milam Cypress (still on the River Walk in San Antonio).
