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.

LIVE these boots, but there is ZERO comfort. I work in an office environment, so it's no big deal. But to walk in these. NOPE!! I ordered the all black and the black with white. The black w/white, the white paint is like dry curled paint and flakes off if you cross your legs or rub against something. I called Xappos and they said if it keeps happening to return them. I really love the black/white pair, so I'm hoping it stops flaking off!

Being a senior woman, I wondered how a boot of this type would feel on my feet. I am pleased to inform that from the moment I tried them on, they began to conform to my feet. I have only worn them while watching TV and I cannot believe how easily they stretched around these feet that have walked miles and miles over the years. I am still trying to get used to the hard inner soles as there is really no cushion in them. When they stretch enough I will trying adding cushioned inner soles for all-day wear. So if you are concerned about stiffness of the boot, don't worry--they are very forgiving and pliable. Also, I have avoided wearing pointed toed shoes for years but I must say that they are really not bad at all either. And as you can see, they are really quite stylish!

This is my second pair of Old Gringo Klak, I purchased the black version of these boots (also have red ones). I've always struggled getting Old Gringo boots on until they are broken in, EXCEPT with these. I'm beyond thrilled. The craftsmanship is great and the style is awesome. These can be worn right of out of box.

These are SO pretty. Well-crafted, soft leather. No idea how comfortable they are, though - could not get my heel in, it’s so narrow! I ordered a 10, I’m a 10 in all other western brands, so this is a real disappointment.

Beautiful boots. HOWEVER, not well thought-out construction. They are pull-on / pull-off, but when I pull them off, my foot caught on the inner sole and started to pull it up. The inner sole is two pieces - the piece from the heel overlapping the piece from the toe. As my foot slid back to exit the shoe, the heel portion of the inner sole started peeling off. I ordered another pair to see if this was a defect, but had the same result. A shame, as these shoes fit and look great. But I expect better construction at this price point.

These boots are beautiful in looks. Can barley get foot into the boot. Very Narrow. I used a shoehorn to get it on but then it was just too tight. I normally wear a 6 but ordered these in a 6.5, still too tight. Length was ok, just too narrow. Needs a bit wider shaft to get the boot off and on.

Boots are as lovely "in person " as online. Foot bed padding is comfy. Regarding fit, these fit properly with socks, would be too big with sheer foot covering.

These are gorgeous and somehow manage to go with everything in my wardrobe. With my standard, taller Old Gringo boots I had to buy a size 8 just to get them on over my high instep. Given the side zip on these I was able to get my true size of 7.5, which feels so nice and much more stable. I can wear thick socks if I want to, but I don't HAVE to just to keep them from flopping around. These also magically look great even with my super skinny ankles and calves. Most shorts boots gap comically at my ankles, to the point that I gave up on short boots over a decade ago. But when I saw, "We the people" and Mount Rushmore faces I had to give these a go, despite the outrageous price. I ordered them with high hopes and low expectations and was pleasantly surprised when they ended up being pretty much perfect in every way. I have long toes that square off as opposed to being angled, so I expected the toe box to be too narrow. It wasn't. I thought my high instep would cause them to smash the tops of my feet. It didn't. In fact, there's just enough room for my thinnest Superfeet insoles. They are quite costly, but given that I have no complaints whatsoever and they match my entire closet I wouldn't dream of returning them. These are just THE perfect boots. God bless the USA.

These boots are so cute,they were comfortable the minute I put them on ,thin sock. I love the support they give my foot,could wear them all day. Old Gringo boots are very well made and stylish…had my eye on these for awhile ! So much personality ! they will accompany me to many summer events…can’t go wrong with Old Gringo ! ( not my first pair)

These boot are even more stunning than the online pics! Super comfortable…maybe just slightly larger than true to size but a half size down would be too small so a thicker sock will work perfectly. The quality is so nice and I love the smell of the leather.

Beautiful boots in person...photos don't do justice. Lovely shade of brown and embroidery is very pretty. Comfortable, seem very durable and well made...as has been the case with other Old Gringo boots I've had in the past. No break in period. Receive compliments every time I've worn them. Great contemporary western boot, neutral and coordinates with everything....whether cowgirl, boho or every day style.

I liked the style and pretty much everything except I felt they ran a little narrow. I’m afraid they wouldn’t break in and be comfortable. May try sizing up but the 8.5 was too tight for me.

I wanted to love these, but alas....they must go back. The concept is great but the reality is not as good. The black suede is not quite up to par. What you cant see on the photos are the clear crystal rhinestones that are supposed to look like stars. I really wanted to wear these boots around, but it wouldn't take much to have these knock off or become cloudy. Too risky for the price. Sorry space cowboy boots - but there is no place for you in the collection.

The fit and size were perfect. Im a true 8.5m but usually will buy a 9 in boots to leave room for the one foot that is bigger than the other (by a tad) and for a lightweight sock or even a winter sock depending upon the seasonality of the boot if one exists. These fit perfectly in a 9 and since they are a summer boot, what with the pink yellow and blue floral going on, I used a lightweight ankle sock so it doesn't show but protects my ankles from chafing more than would a liner. The one boot was just a tad large on my smaller foot but not enough to be floppy or problematic in any way. With a tight, like in my dress shoes, I suspect I would be ok with an 8.5 in Old Gringo Boots but since this is summer and Im not about to wear one of those overdone Lolita outfits no tights for me with these. Basically they fit perfect but in the future I would try buying an 8.5 for darker or winter boots if Old Gringo was out of stock everywhere in a 9 which is still my first choice in a boot. This was my first pair of Old Gringos. Im thrilled with the quality. The bone crackle background is not shy and the muted pink, blue and yellow flowers are done in multiple shades of each color and are beautiful. The green is a little too subtle so dont blend with a green dress. For a green, rust or burgundy or even an ivory with warm tone floral dress go look at the Ariat Bootie at Wild West Boot Store which has rust and burgundy roses painted on a crackled black background and they are on sale for only $110...would go great with Jeans and a boho top too and with warmer clothes in winter like a cut cropped blazer over a tiered boho shirt or even a plain old button-up. Back to the Old Gringo floral boot here I don't know if you can see it in the pic but there is tiny gold piping on the boots seams; I dont know who comes up with this stuff at Olds Gringo but its a beautiful subtle addition to the boot which overall looks very high end. You cant miss with Zappos on these floral boots for summer, they will be there for you for years to come and because of the bone background and antiqued finish and if you are in California, or anywhere with general mild weather conditions, wearing them in Fall and Spring is ok too since we only have two seasons here...dang its hot and dang its cold. I would not hesitate to pay full price again on another pair of Old Gringos that are particularly seasonal so have a tendency to sell out in that season at full price like these do.

The previous reviews I read had me decide to order my regular open toe and sandal size of 8.5, when normally I always wear a 9 in closed toe and boots. Even the 8.5 was too long in the toe box. As Ute as they are, OldGringo should adjust the sizing to compensate for this. I don’t mind a pointed toe, in fact I prefer that, but when I have 2”+ beyond my big toe I feel that they looked like witch shoes (especially with the upturned curved sole)! So sad, I wanted them to work and now size 8 is not available.

OH MY GOSH!!! I cannot say enough great things about this boot! They fit my wide feet perfect, and I can walk comfortably in these for several hours. Never fails the amount of compliments I get wearing these boots. Worth every penny! Perhaps, I’ll ask for another pair on Mother’s Day.??. I’m in love with these boots and feel like Cinderella wearing the perfect fit ? shoe.
