Devil’s Backbone

Size (D/EE):
Sale price$595.00

Ostrich is one of the most versatile hides that we utilize. It is extremely soft, but as strong as alligator.  With Nicotine ostrich and black uppers, it is absolutely one of the most beautiful boots you can buy.  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.

  • 1.5” Square Cowboy Toe
  • Uppers have Lone Star ostrich inlay and 12" high
  • Heel is leather stacked 1 1/2”
  • Soles are hand pegged with lemonwood, 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 stock boots are 'true to size' in order to conform perfectly with your foot, but this makes them more of a custom feel (slightly tighter). Other companies tend to oversize their boots, so if you want a comparable fit then go up a half size (if a 10 in other stock boots, order a 10.5) - 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 the scenic Devil's Backbone drive in the Texas Hill Country.  Its an absolutely beautiful drive, but be careful because there are many reports of spirits that roam the area.  For spirits of another kind go see our friends at the Devils Backbone Tavern.

Walk All Day

Shoping at Republic boots is awesome. Bought some 1836 boots, Devils backbone and they are super comfortable. I have been in Charleston and Savannah touring and have been walking 4 to 7 miles per day. Boots are comfortable and my feet feel great after walking in them. Even walked on the beach in them, had to stay in uniform as I was working. THANKS so much Republic boots for making awesome boots. Looking forward to my next ones.
