Ebay Pick: Vintage Dixon Boots

Vintage Dixon Boots. On eBay, $224.99. Buy them now. NOW!

Very groovy stitch pattern, 6 row-3 color-orange, green and yellow thread stitching. Worthy of reproduction. James Davis writes about Andy & Nobel Dixon here and here. The bootshop was in Wichita Falls… it looks like this pair hasn’t traveled far from home.

(See what I mean about the orange-green-yellow stitching? Cool, no?)

Spider Web Stitches, 1964

This spiderweb boot was made by the Champion Boot Company. It doesn’t look particularly dated now, because in August 1964 it was ahead of its time.

The Western Horseman’s Gear Guides always came out in May. That’s the issue where you’ll find the best cowboy boot advertising and old-timey descriptions. You know, back when boots were made in rich colors of “amber and pie-crust.”
