The Colt is Black Full Quill Ostrich with a Gunmetal Top. Ostrich is one of the most versatile hides that we utilize. It is extremely soft, but as strong as alligator. This unique top is made from a special type of leather we have made called gunmetal (the sheen is iridescent and shimmers from Grey to Dark Blue) - It can change color, depending on the angle, much like the barrel of a gun.
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 12" high. Heel is leather stacked 1 1/2”. Soles are hand pegged with lemonwood. Reinforced pulls.
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 exhange 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 Walker Colt Pistol. The old saying goes like this: God created men equal. Colonel Colt made them equal!
Samuel Colt accepted an order for 1,000 revolvers from Captain Samuel Walker of the Texas Rangers. Walker said It needed to hold six bullets, be simple to reload and “be powerful enough to kill a man with a single shot".
