About customboots

I'm a custom cowboy boot maker. I own a business, Sorrell Custom Boots, and I create bespoke cowboy boots using vintage machinery and hand tools. I have no employees, but my daughter Paige works in my shop with me. She has her own business making ladies shoes.

  1. Is it tough keeping your stiches spaced evenly on the rough surface of the alligator?

      Yes, everything about doing inlay in alligator is harder. The scales are firm and the leather between them is soft, so cutting and stitching evenly through those differences is a challenge.
