Description


Original antique 1860 - 70s Cowboy Boots. These boots are the early classic one piece front and one piece back as seen on the first cattle drives after the war of northern aggression. They wrinkle at the angle as they were made by stretching them over a form rather than making them in two pieces as was done later.  This pair of boots came out of a museum collection as witnessed by the museum inventory numbers on the inside of the arch.  The sole is stitched on the edge and wooden pegged on the inside of the sole. The heel is of stacked leather in the Cuban shape and nailed together with small hobnails to slow wearing them down. This pair of boots are the real deal. They are in remarkable condition, very soft and pliable. To find a pair in this condition is rare as most were completely used up. The stitching is remarkably delicate, with all stitches intact and no rips or tears. The soles show very light wear and no abuse. Likely worn for dress. Both the uppers and foot are soft and pliable with leather side pulls on the uppers. These boots could be polished up to improve their display if you want, but I always thought they looked great just as they are. Toes are just a bit more rounded at the corners as compared with military boots. I have stuffed the uppers with a non-acetic interfacing material.These antique boots are hard to find in good condition. These would fill a gap in any military or Old West collection. My lareiata is not included.
