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.

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.

Love the boots. Beautiful yet not too flashy for a 70 yo. The fit is comfortable for me and I love the embroidery. I’ll be wearing this pair often. Highly recommend Old Gringo, especially after having tried other cowboy boots.

I got these as a gift for a special anniversary. I've been wearing them for years now, and they are absolutely perfect. They're perfect with bootcut jeans or casual dresses. Absolutely love them, and I get at least 2 compliments every time I wear them. For comfort- they're as comfy as cowboy boots can be. And they've warn incredibly well.

I have a very high arch, and ordered a size up. Even with that, I could not get the boot on. The ankle shaft did not leave enough room to insert my foot. Better off with the Maureen Boot, cuz we love our Old Gringos.

Beautiful boots! I put them on for an entire day and my feet still feel great. Even had compliments on them! The quality is very good; the look of the boots are modern, yet cowboy. Just what I was hoping. Wish my budget would allow me to buy more! BTW, I always appreciate it when reviews leave the following: I’m 70 yo and live in MT one is never too old for these boots!

I never thought I would ever pay this much for a pair of boots in my life, but I splurged on these. I love them but I must say its a good thing my calves are tiny or they would not fit, they are very tight. Also they are a nightmare to get off, I finally waited until my husband arrived to help me. But I have received endless compliments on them and the grey color goes with everything! I am petite but the tall boot relaxes once it is worn enough so I don't mind that the height hits my knees or thereabouts. I am a definite old gringo fan.

Oh my studs and straps and buckles! Exactly the foot jewelry I was looking for. These have superior quality materials and craftsmanship. The balls of my feet were snarking at me with a minimum of walking. Some foot pads will solve that problem. I'm a solid size 9 and the 9 fits perfect with sneaker socks.

These boots are beautiful and outstanding quality. I absolutely love them however the sizing is tricky. I wear a size 7 and never have trouble fitting most boots however the heel is narrow so I ordered a7 1/2 and it seemed 2 sizes larger. Ultimately I sent both pairs back and ordered another 7 which seemed to fit. I think the sizing is hit or miss with manufacture but I would definitely recommend these boots because they are awesome!

Absolutely gorgeous boots. Zappos is the best. I had this same boot for a year, (in the taller version) and I finally had to be honest with myself...they were toooo tight!! I finally got the courage to call the Zappos associate and ask if I could return my tall version Leopardito ol' Gringo boots. To my wonderous surprise, Zappos took my boots back and I got to order the shorter version, which was totally okay with me. Boy, what a happy camper I am. Merry Christmas to me from Zappos!!! Thank you Zappos!! You totally rock...forever!!!

Very attractive boot! I love these boots. They are really pretty, feminine, fun details. Nice, muted colors making it very versatile. Good height. It does run slightly small so I followed another reviewers comment and ordered 1/2 size up, perfect. It is on the narrow side but not too much so. I feel like I have a very average foot width wise and this fit nicely, but not much room like some other boots. So if your foot leans to the wider end, I wouldn’t go with these and if you are often wishing the boot was a bit more narrow, these might be a great choice! I knocked off one star for comfort based on the fact there could be more padding in the footbed. Not uncomfortable, just not what you would choose to put on if you were going to be walking all day.

The boots are beautiful. I LOVE that the heals don't make any noise when you walk in them. I am a size 8 1/2 but since my feet are very wide I usually buy a size 9. There is plenty of room for my feet in this boot but not so much that my feet are moving around. Because of the 2-inch high heel it really puts a lot of pressure on the balls of my feet when wearing them so I will be purchasing some pads to put in there. That being said, I do not consider this a flaw in the boot but rather a symptom of wearing a boot with a 2-inch high heel. The stud strap detail comes right off so if you wanted to wear them without the bling you will have that option. I would definitely recommend these boots.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these boots! Old Gringo is one of my favorites and these boots did not disappoint! The boot pulls are hidden on the inside so they have a nice slim profile. I will enjoy these for many years, worth every penny!

These are amazing, I can't get over how good they look (purchased the chocolate/red combination) and they're comfortable right out of the box - something I wasn't expecting since I wear flip flops here in FL 99% of the time, and thus my feet are pansies. The one other review rated them as running a full size small, so I sized up from my usual 7.5 to an 8 to accommodate socks, but they were huge. The 7.5 replacement pair are plenty roomy for socks. The toe is very pointed, so that portion is long but your foot won't slip forward because the boots are cut so (very!) well.
