started with the goal of “making happy feet”!
That is still our goal, but how we accomplish the goal has
evolved—a rather convoluted evolution.
This site is a chronicle
of “our story.” And,
our story is very atypical—even atypical for Custom
Bootmakers, of whom there are very few. We have chosen our
own path, and we have been walking it for 40 years. Some would
judge that we have not been particularly successful. (We’re
not downtown-big-city USA. We don’t have multiple locations,
nor dozens of employees.) But in our reality we live with
incredible abundance. We live where and how we choose. And,
for us, it has worked. I am one of those few incredibly blessed
individuals that actually, day by day, looks forward to “going
to work.” I have fun doing what I do!
Hopefully you will find something interesting or useful to
you here. Hopefully you will feel of the passion that we bring
to our craft.
Something that we have found to be interesting is: we have
observed that the kinds of jobs that an individual is particularly
skilled at, or about which he is passionate, will find their
way to his door.
If you find that what we do may be of service to you, we
will look forward to getting to know you.
