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.

So these are so gorgeous, so well made, wonderful quality. I read the reviews that said the Old Gringo runs large so I ordered a half size down, what a mistake. These are true to size, maybe even a little small because of the toe. I ordered a larger pair immediately (my regular size) and am patiently waiting for them to arrive!!! I cant wait to get them, wanted them for Memorial Day...but they are great and I look forward to wearing them.

So I read reviews that suggested to consider a half size down, that Old Gringo ran large, and I did order the smaller size. SO they arrived too small!!! :((( These absolutely gorgeous boots are well constructed, sexy, HOT, great fit and maybe small because its a pointy cowboy fit toe fit. Don’t believe the reviews to size down and just order your size. This is a simply a stunning boot on every level, sorry I read the original review. Ordered the larger size and cant wait for them to arrive...simply stunning and beautiful quality. I am anxiously waiting for the new pair to arrive.

These boots are amazing!!! I bought them to wear with my wedding dress and they are perfect! super cute style and super soft leather. I put an insole in to take up some of the space as I am a little between sizes. I am between an 8 ½-9 and i went with the 9 as I don't like my foot to be cramped. the soles of these boots are quiet, versus the loud clunk of many boots, and they are comfortable right our of the box with the cutest floral pattern. Super excited to have found the perfect combination of a comfortable, cute and dressy boot-totally worth the price.

This is a well-made pair of boots with bluebonnets embroidered on them. I wanted them for a few months and was glad when Zappos emailed me they were back in stock. Hey, Old Gringo, can you shorten that pointed toe? Women don't like their feet to look longer than they are. I live in Texas and I NEEDED these bluebonnet boots.

Love these! The heel is a little higher which I love and they are so stylish!! I wear an 8 and ordered an 8. They feel great. They are a little tight in a couple of places but that is with all cowboy boots until you break them in and make them your own. Then they are your most comfortable go to boots ;)

These cowgirl boots are so beautiful! Nice leather and the loveliest floral detail! Was true to size but still have to get used to pointed tips having a little extra space. I wish they were made more square toed. This doesn’t affect my walk or comfort. I also like that they are the shorter style of boots since that was what I really wanted. Anyway, they are well crafted.

These are great boots! I normally wear a size 9 1/2, sometimes 10. I first ordered a size 10, being they are a short boot and I thought they might be hard to get on. They were actually too big. I then got a size 9 1/2, they fit perfectly. Easy to pull on. I love the animal print, however they are as pictured, a bit of an orange tone to the color. Very soft leather. That being said, I will keep them. Very in style now, will look cute with skinny jeans or a skirt.

I love, love, love these boots!! I have been watching them for years, if you can believe it. They finally went on sale at the perfect time and I was able to get them. They are even more amazing in person. This is my 3rd pair of Old Gringo boots and all of them fit perfectly. I was a little concerned by the other reviews, but 8.5 is exactly what I purchased in my other 2 boots and these fit perfect!! I can’t wait to wear them out especially with the ripped up ankle hem jeans!! Fabulous! Thank you Old Gringo!!

first of all...sheer perfection. Gorgeous boot. They are hand made and with this brand I know I have to try on two different sizes. I am typically a 9, but wound up with the 9 1/2 because I know I will wear with a medium weight sock. Thanks Zappos for making it so easy to try different sizes!

I always size down in my cowboy boots so I went with a 7.5. They fit perfect. I just love the color and feel like they will go with everything.

Have been looking for something like these in my size for 2 winters now and YAY! Love them! Was a little worried about the review that stated her calves did not fit comfortably, as mine are muscular, but they work!

This is a pretty boot but sadly I had to return mine. I just could not justify the price for the comfort. I preferred the Lucchese over these but they are pretty boots and did seem to feel true to size.

Exceptionally nice embroidered “Texas bluebonnet” theme that is hard to find. Side zipper makes easy on-off. Returned because 7” shaft top edge rubs uncomfortably when I walk. (I’m 5’-1”.)

These are beautiful boots. The leather and construction are excellent. The foot and ankle fit was comfortable. However, the opening was too wide so it flopped around on my shin. I wish it were more tapered. Sadly, they are not going to work for me so I continue my search.

Pretty easy to get on. A little tight around my calves. Really really hard to take off. I’m hoping they will stretch in the future but that might take years.

These books look absolutely beautiful and are well made with soft leather. However, there is a very hard built-up arch support area and they were so uncomfortable in my instep that I have to return them.

These gorgeous boots are my favorites for summer and fall. I get so many complements on their style and design and I can wear them with jeans or a casual dress. I prefer to wear them without socks with my orthodics (flat feet); with socks they're a bit of a tighter fit with the orthodics. Extremely happy with my purchase.

Beautiful, quality made Old Gringo boots. Wore all day right out of box without any problems. A little stiff initially but are starting to soften and can tell they'll only get better with wear. They're a little pricey but will last forever. I consider them a good investment!

These boots are gorgeous and sooooo well made! So glad I ordered them. I do wish they had slightly better padding in the footbed, because adding an insole would defeat the purpose of the leather footbed (which is mandatory for my comfort). Overall, these are made to last. I can’t wait to see how they look when they are broken in and relax a little!! ?

I debated whether to keep these or not. I bought these in my usual size; 9-1/2. With the pointy toe, they looked extremely long and had, what felt like, a weird hard bar under the arch. I ordered the 9's to see if they would fit, and they looked and felt a lot better; nothing weird in the arch. I had to add a hole in the top strap to accommodate my larger ankles.

My son bought it for me and it fits perfectly like a gloves, true to size , i rated 3 stars for comfort because the insole is hard I cannot add extra soft insole cause the fitting is just right, next time 1/2 size larger , the one day shipment is amazing ?
