Vintage Women's Cowboy Boots Lizard Skin Red Cowgirl Boots with Blue Suede Size 7 M (fits up to 7.5)

Sorry, this item has sold.

This is one of two pairs of beautiful exotic boots I purchased for myself at the Tony Lama warehouse in El Paso in about 1991. (Ann Richards was governor, and they had just closed the warehouse to the public so she could shop.) Here is a link to the other pair I bought, which has since sold: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1051988878 />
This red and blue boot, like the one sold, was a premiere Tony Lama style for its time. The boot is made with Teju lizard leather, dyed scarlet red. The uppers are by now a faded yet still vibrant blue suede embroidered with pink, blue, and yellow thread. The boot has a D stamped inside (see photo 4) which I believe stands for Defect. The boot has one leather strap of the four total straps that is off-color from the other three (see photo 5). In terms of wear, there are areas on the seams where the blue leather has worn off (also photo 5).

The boots are size 7 M, and narrow for M. At the time I bought the boots I wore AAs, and I found the M width to be surprisingly snug. Of my two Tony Lama pairs of boots, these were by far my favorites. I wore them until the thread along the leather sole had unraveled. I just had the entire leather sole and stacked heel re-soled in early Sep'15--to the tune of about $55; hence the boots are at the high end of the price spectrum--but even my two boot guys admired the boots. They reconditioned and retouched the dye of the lizard skin.

An amazing looking boot that you'll likely never see anyone else wearing.

WILL THIS BOOT FIT YOU?

Because buying boots online is not easy, I've captured advice from Boot Barn, America's largest western wear store. Here's what they have to say:

- If you are familiar with the brand, order the same size you usually wear in that brand.
- If you own another brand of boots, that size will usually do.
- If it is your first pair of western boots, usually start with 1/2 a size down from your normal shoe size.

So, with Boot Barn's guidelines in mind, these marked size 7 B Tony Lama boots should fit up to a size 7.5 (and I recommend a foot on the narrow side just from experience with this pair of boots).

If you've never bought a cowboy boot, you want them to fit snug, to the point that you're using the straps to pull them on. And to take them off, you need to pull from the heel away from your foot. Pulling them on and taking them off is an art that you soon master, but if it's your first time wearing a cowboy boot, it's something you'll need to learn.

Please convo with questions, or call (505) 369-6865. Will return your call as soon as possible.
