Is this your first time buying an Old Gringo Boot? We can help you find your perfect size!
Shopping for shoes online is a lot of fun. However, sometimes it can be challenging. Old Gringo would like to share some tips with you especially if this is your first time buying at OldGringoDirect.com. Our boots are handmade, meaning hand lasted in a welted construction. These will be the most comfortable boots/shoes you own, but the fit is not like traditional machine made footwear.
This is a very important part to guarantee the right fit. If the shaft is too narrow, and you have a high instep try a boot with a zipper.
To give you more stability when you walk, the ball of your foot should fit in between the widest part of the boot. Check, the ball part of your foot, is in the proper place. Otherwise if the toes are to forward into to the front it means the boot is too short for the foot.
A boot should slip a little in the heel. When you start using a new boot the brand new leather will take a few days to give you comfort and the slippage should not cause discomfort.
Remove dirt and dust after each wear. Wipe your boots off with a soft cloth, dampen slightly if needed.
Apply a leather conditioner and cream occasionally. (Remember some boots have different color leathers so be careful)
Store your boots properly; keeping them at proper humidity levels so they can least in a great condition longer.
Keep your cowboy boots away from your pets. Animals, especially dogs love to chew on leather.
It is recommendable to use a boot bag to transport your boots.
Is good to pay attention how you walk or drive in your boots, especially if they have a lot of embellishments.
Use an Old Gringo Boot Jack to assist in removing your cowboy boots.
