I’ll be working on the Oklahoma state boots for the next several weeks and I’m not allowed to share photos of them on social media until their grand unveiling at the State Capitol. This leaves me without much to share as far as boot making goes, so I’m going to try to remember to regularly post photos and memories of boots I’ve made.

These boots are based on an old Olsen Stelzer design. When I was measuring the lady she said, “I want a pair of boots with an oil derrick on them, because my family was in oil.” I thought, “That’s cool for you; my family was in poverty!” but I was smart enough to not voice that thought. 🤣
