Old Gringo

Old Gringo Logo
Since 2000, Old Gringo® has been focused on a single goal: combining the best materials with the most highly skilled craftsmen. Beautiful designs and comfort are not accidents. It's all about bonding a time honored handcrafting art and a contemporary flair for fashion. Old Gringo strives to give their customers a product that embodies style and quality.

Founders Yan Ferry and Ernie Tarut decided to combine Yan's bootmaking and design skill with Ernie's years of experience in leather manufacturing to create boots of superior style and quality. Thus Old Gringo was born. The first Old Gringo factory opened in 2000 with a collection of original, vintage and retro styles. These styles bridged the gap between western style and pure fashion.

Every Old Gringo boot goes through one hundred-ten individual steps, performed by skilled craftsman. This is a very time-intensive process, but the consistent application of these skills is required to make a superior quality boot. Old Gringo produces and tans their own leathers in colors, textures and finishes to meet the meticulous demands of their designers. After carefully selecting the finest grade of leather, the leathers undergo a detailed tanning process. Each of the next steps, from cutting the upper materials to assembling the insoles and outsoles are critical in the construction of the perfect boot.

I am a size 9.5 and these definitely run true to size. They are beautiful and stylish. The reason I gave them three stars for comfort is because the seams around the ankle are really uncomfortable and these are not the kind of boot that will accommodate a short sock to prevent chafing. Many Old Gringo boots can literally be worn without a sock right out of the box they're so soft. These are gorgeous but have to go back.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Like a fine luxury car! The workmanship is unbelievable. My feet were made for these boots. They are a step above and well worth the price. The leather is supple but durable and exquisite. The foot bed is plush and comfy. These boots are fearless and daring and sexy; yet soft and understated. Ladies treat yourself! You won’t regret it. Zappos is my fairy shoemother

Really nice looking boot. The heel is just right. Not too high to be uncomfortable. I'm usually a 6 1/2 in boots and that's the size I purchased.

Love the elastic around the ankle on these boots - they maintain a smooth profile with jeans and a slim silhouette with a dress or skirt. Not sure if the Yippee Ki Yay brand of OG is just a more “fashionable” product line, but may also be a slightly more “affordable” one, without saying it? These boots are definitely a lower price point, and I think it shows. The shiny look and feel of the leather, the pretty basic stitching and embellishment feels off somehow from the usual OG MO, but hey - the price is right and the boot is cute and I am wearing them! Sometimes basic is good and they are solid pair of black boots that I’m pretty sure I’ll have for the long haul!

Felt slightly larger than expected, but not enough to return. I love the detail on sides of the boot - adds some panache. The OG quality is definitely here, I just wish the color (described online as “Brass” - not sure why or what that’s describing? Maybe the color of the leather??) was more accurately stated. The accent stitching is more green than blue, and on my screen it looked more turquoise, which I would have preferred. This green is slightly too bright - a more muted shade would look more organic and artisan, and not so processed...but as stated already, I kept these boots because they are different and the color has grown on me! I also got the chocolate brown and red pair (ummmm, color described perfectly here, people!?!) but had to decide between the two, which was really hard because they are both super cute - same deal on the red accent stitching. Could use some toning down, but that may come with age and wear anyway. In all, LOVE these boots!!

These boots are just beautiful - I love the stitching and subtle variation of the color tones - and the toe box is not as flared in the width as some other OGs I own, so it makes for a nice lean silhouette. Basically, I love everything about these boots - they just run big so I might recommend downsizing a half.

Couldn’t even get my foot in this boot. I have numerous pairs of Old Gringos and this pair is just too narrow, no zipper, to get on my high arched foot. Sad cause I really liked the style.

I was hoping they wouldn't fit because of the price. I didn't want to spend this much on boots but they were adorable. The fit was a little snug but I would buy 10/12 if they came that way since I have a big feet. They are super cute and very comfortable.

I love these booties. They are so flattering, but not the best if you are going to be on your feet all day. Considering how tall the heel height is, they are rather comfortable. I get so many compliments on these. They are even better in person!

Beautiful boots! The shaft circumference was said to be 13", but it was 15" and I have very narrow calves so sadly, I returned them.

I had bought a pair of Old Gringo boots about 18 years ago... I wore them until I had to have them re-soled, and then they didn't fit the same. So I took a chance and ordered this pair on zappos.com. I am extremely pleased. Like all leather boots and great horses they need to be broken in. From experience I know the leather will soften and they will fit like a glove soon enough. But these boot were made for me! Thank you!

These boots are a deep maroon-purple, feminine pattern and very cute! Just the right shaft height to wear with dresses/shorts/cropped jeans. I normally wear a 10 and have a wider foot so these were too tight for me and had to return them.

I love this bootie. Old Gringo is such an amazing company with the talent to make there boots vintage and worn. I feel thechniqe and talent captures what a true fashion forward girl wants in western bootie. Love that they are made in Mexico since I live in a town bordering Mexico. I also love the short bootie style. They go great with my skinny jeans. The leather is exceptional inside and out. Love the feminine distressed embroidery on the boot. The fit is true to size and fits like a true cowboy boot should. Zipper works great and makes it easy to slide in and out of these keepers. ??

super cute boot but wasn't very comfortable. I love the side zipper, but just felt like I was walking on the ground. the extra curved up piece in the front of boot was too much for me. I didn't care for that style. wish they fit better, they are a cute boot, but not very comfortable. very expensive too.
