I grew up on a Georgia cattle farm, where I first learned the importance of a comfortable cowboy boot. After moving to Nashville and running several businesses, I took up bootmaking and I traveled to New Mexico. There I apprenticed with a second generation bootmaker, learning the craft. A few years later I spent time with an awarding winning bootmaker in Arizona. Since that time I have been awarded several awards and accolades, including the coveted Top Stitch Award at the Boots & Saddle Makers Competition in Texas.
“A custom boot means comfort, durability, and style. I found that bespoke bootmaking was the perfect place for me to combine both art and functionality. When design & form combine with comfort and craftsmanship, pure, functional art is created.” – Wes Shugart
