The Bonham boot is a lower heel oil-tanned Roper and comes with a zipper for added ease getting into the boot.
We are master bootmakers and have meticulously designed every aspect of this boot. Oil Tanned Calf graces the exterior while prime leathers are used to construct all other aspects of this boot. The oil-tanned leather is ‘self-healing’ and can be darkened with more conditioner, but the leather is versatile and hides imperfections. *All boots vary slightly in color.
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.
- Classic Roper Toe
- Uppers are tonal stitched and 11" high.
- Heel is leather stacked 1 1/4” high.
- Hand-pegged Lemonwood to keep shank, reinforced with brass clinch nails
- Reinforced pulls.
- Lux-calf interior for glove-like comfort.
- Full leather insole (for breathability and custom shaping to your foot).
Our men's boots fit true to size. If the majority of your shoes are a size 10 then order a size 10 in ours (its free to exchange if something is off).
Our Full Leather Insoles allow the Width to be Modifiable! They are built on a EE base and have a full leather insole that (when inserted) makes the boot a D width (normal). So, simply remove this leather insert for EE (wide) width, or keep it inserted for D (normal) width. They will conform comfortably to your feet either way.
Add up to 3 initials on the pulls (black, brown, or bone) to customize the boots. Put the initials in the Order Notes. We handmake these (inlay into the pulls) and it takes us 3-4 weeks to complete this.
These boots are dedicated to James Butler Bonham. He was an officer at the Alamo (Travis’ second cousin) and died inside the church manning a cannon. Bonham's life and role in the siege and battle of the Alamo have been romanticized almost more than that of any other defender. He was very influential in advocating for Texas Independence and gave his life for it! Go learn more about him
