I stopped by Texas Custom Boots (Austin, TX). Noel Escobar…. even after all this time in the bootmaking business, has not lost his passion (and patience) for vintage cowboy boots. One of the few places that able and willing to return a beat up vintage pair to wearable condition. Noel is still a great collector. Lots of boots on the shelves. If you can’t find what you are looking for… then you should have the shop make you a custom pair!
