Joe, the owner of these boots, was one of my very first customers when I started my own business. He stuck with me through poorly-made boots and boots that didn’t fit, and he always believed in me and encouraged me. I think it’s safe to say that Joe is one of the reasons I made it in the cowboy boot business — I can easily imagine giving up in despair without the support of customers like Joe.
This boot features a high vamp; the foot part extends up the leg. It’s technically difficult to do but he loved this style and requested it repeatedly until I finally worked up the courage to try it.
They’re named “Bluebonnet Lane” in honor of Joe’s home state of Texas.
