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 bought these boots in brown. They fit me true to size, and I have a high instep which sometimes makes the fit of a boot difficult. The leather of these boots is very soft, making them easy to put on. They are a distressed leather, which means that the finish of the color is uneven. If you like your boot finishes very uniform then these may not be for you. I love Old Gringo short boots, they are comfortable and they look great. The heel height is just right for all day comfort.

I wore what I thought would be my favorite pair of boots today. The Old Gringo Bonnie Mayra. They seemed perfect. Until I walked from my car to my house in about ½ “ of snow. I walked into my house and before I noticed I had tracked black dye that was dripping from the boots all over my house. I’m pretty sure I ruined my wool carpet and two throw rugs. I can’t seem to get the black stain out. I am so disappointed that these boots are made with an ink that is not color fast. The boots were not soaking wet. Just had a little snow on them. I would appreciate an email with a solution to removing the dye. And I also ordered the Old Gringo Acoma Tall. Will these do the same thing? I love these too. But don’t want to keep them if they are going to bleed.

I ordered a half size smaller because of the snip toe. I love these boots! I have chicken legs so they fit me perfectly. Gorgeous and well made.

I’m a 7.5 or and 8. I ordered the 8 and it was perfect. The shaft is very soft and comfortable. Like all old gringos the shoe would need some breaking in. As much as I loved them I did return them. Just wouldn’t get enough wear for the price.

OK, I was almost scared away by the reviews I read about these boots being hard to get on. I have a deformed right foot and have been looking for years, for something I could get on a and be able to wear. I had even been looking for something with a zipper to make it easier to get on. So, I was afraid I wouldn't get my right foot into the boot. But, I am sooooo glad I decided to take a chance anyway. They went right on, fit great and feel very comfortable. I love them and they are now my go to for boots. Since they only had one pair in my size I feel like I really scored. I love the color too, nice natural looking leather.

This boot was soooooo beautiful, I'm just so disappointed that my high arch kept this from being comfortable. Also, the leather was so soft that when I pulled it on I needed a shoe horn to keep it from buckling at my heel. I have another pair of Old Gringo boots and they are my "go-to" boot for every occasion. My foot shape and the boot construction just didn't work with this OG boot.

The reviews about this brand are accurate. These fit well, and were comfortable in spite of the pointy toe. They were beautiful and well made. The color didn't fit into my wardrobe the way I had hoped, so I can't afford to keep them. But I will remember the brand, and the fact that they are worth the extra money. I imagine I'll own a pair at some point.

I loved them, but based on another pair of old Gringo boots I bought, I ordered a half size smaller that my usual size. That was a mistake. These run true to size.

I love Old Gringo Boots! This pair is exceptional in their craftsmanship with the stitching and leatherwork. So beautiful....I usually wear a size 10, but with cowboy boots you are supposed to order smaller, so I went down a half step and got the 9.5. Turns out they were still too big. I can probably wear a 9

Old Gringo are my all time fave boots, and these are totally awesome with the bit of turquoise trim! I love them! The fit is always perfect, right out of the box. I put them on and went about my business all day, forgetting I had a brand new pair of boots on...wore them into the evening. The best boots.

They are lovely and seemed comfortable. Had to return for half size smaller. I like how narrow they are on the top.

They are cute. But not fantastic. I have narrow foot and found it very hard to put on. They are also wide at the top. If they only had a zipper...

These boots are so cute! Purchased in the oryx color. It is a lovely distressed tannish brown. The stitching is beautiful and in all the right places on the boot. Received many compliments the first day I wore them. I usually wear an 8 in most shoes and boots and the 8 fits perfectly! Shout out to Zappos and their wonderful customer service folks!

Cute boot, good fit, I didn't wear it to know about comfort. The "vulcanized" leather is just a bit too shiny, with the fringe and embroidery, there was just too much bling for my taste.

Possibly the pair I received had been sized incorrectly at factory...because even with side zipper down I still could not get my foot into the boot. At least TWO sizes too small. VERY narrow width. Beautiful boots though, therefore I regretted being forced to return them. Still LOCE Zappos though!

The picture of this boot does not do it justice...it is absolutely so gorgeous I ordered both colors!!!! I ordered a 1/2 size up to allow for toe room. They are soft and heel height is just right. These boots are a real statement maker!!!! Can’t wait to wear them!!!

I really wanted to love these boots...and did in style, color and construction. However, I couldn't even get them on! The opening was extremely narrow to not have a side zipper. I am guessing from my other encounters with this brand that they would have had a hard bottom with little to no arch support or foot padding.

Great boot in style and construction. They were a bit more snug than I would like. I ordered a 1/2 size larger than I typically wear in shoes. I do have larger calves and very high insteps. These went on pretty easily and fit nicely on my calves since they are a mid calf boot. Overall though, I didn't keep them as there was no padding in the footbed and the "step" in these boots was very hard on the foot and I know walking or standing for long distances/time would be overall very uncomfortable.

I loved the look of these boots.. with that being said, I could not wear them as they are to tight around the calf.. I am not a large lady and my legs are not that big but these felt as tho they would strangle my calfs.. I had my sister try them on as well and they did the same to her.. I really loved these boots, but had to return them do to the fit .

This is my first pair of Old Gringos and I love them. Normal shoe size is 7.5, in boots I will do an 8. The reviews recommended a full size down so I purchased the 7 and it is perfect. I agree completely with the advice of going one full size smaller.
