Artisan handcrafted boots that capture vintage charm and contemporary styles.
The high quality of Old Gringo boots is the culmination of an over 130-step production process performed by skilled craftsmen, many of whom have been perfecting their craft for over 20 years. The combination of the Old Gringo time-intensive production process and the skills of talented craftsmen results in a product that is made to last a lifetime.
Since their designs demand only the finest materials and quality, they have chosen to produce and tan their own carefully selected leathers in textures, colours and finishes developed by co-owner Yan Ferry. The critical steps involved in the construction of the perfect Old Gringo boot include the hand-cutting of all upper materials, the pre-fitting of our shafts and vamps, the fancy stitch, laborious handtooling and embroidery designs, the assembling of the insoles, outsoles, last and uppers, the hand-driving of lemon pegs and meticulous finishing.
