Welcome to my workshop in Santa Rosa, California
Since 1976 I have made hundreds of leather boots by hand--every variation of
military boots, riding boots, cowboy boots, motorcycle boots, hiking boots, dance boots, women's dress boots
and platform boots.
I work in the Old World way by carving wood lasts based on
your foot outline, drawing custom patterns from your measurements, and
stitching the finest leather from around the world. Since I make your boots
from scratch, every detail: fit, toe shape, heel, color, heft, decoration is
done for you.
of successful practice I'm ready and eager to make boots for you, too. Use
my design-order form to get started. Theatrical accounts should phone or
email for special terms.
