These incredible boots are made of caiman belly with a beautiful tonal Texas star. The blacked-out colors can be worn with a suit or just as easy with your everyday adventures.
We use no synthetic materials and every aspect is handmade (which is why this boot will last a lifetime). These details are important.
- 1.5” Square Cowboy Toe
- Uppers have Lone Star caiman 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 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 the legendary Townes Van Zandt (descended from a prominent leader of the Republic of Texas). He was known as the songwriter's songwriter with his deep lyrics and bluesy rhythm. He wrote the famous song Poncho and Lefty.
In 1971, he was on his way to Houston from San Francisco when the musician Joe Ely picked up “this tall scarecrow-looking guy” thumbing rides in Lubbock, Texas. Ely was shocked to find that Townes seemed to be carrying no clothes, just a bag of records he’d been hauling with him along the highway, through the desert. Van Zandt gave one to Ely who took it back to his future Flatlanders bandmate Jimmie Gilmore. They listened to it again and again. “It made us question what a song could be,” said Ely.
