I’d forgotten I have these (just call me the Ymelda Marcos of boots), but they’re an awesome pair, and I came across them rummaging around for footwear yesterday morning.
They’re custom made by Terry Stanley of El Paso, Texas, for some guy whose name started with “A”. (There’s a silver leather “A” inlaid on each shaft, but it doesn’t show when I’m wearing them.) They have very fancy hand stitching, “foxing” (onlaid leather) on the heel, and wingtips in two types of ostrich (belly and half-quill). Pulls are ostrich as well. The blue leather is calf.
