And it shows in every stitch. Because they’re made the way a good pair should be: by hand. One at a time. With great skill and care. They’re fancy boots you’ll be proud to wear. Dressed up or dressed down. At work or around town. With designs you’ll want to show off forever. 

We started our western boot business in 2007 with a mission to create authentic western boots crafted with vintage designs and old school methodology. Our historically authentic boots are timeless classics, inspired with detailing and design elements taken from the 1930s thru 1960s. Boots are our passion. We're old school merchants and our fine store is located on South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas.

We care so much that you can't buy our boots online - only in person and over the phone. When you call or are in our stores, a boot maven will guide you through finding the perfect pair. The fit is paramount and we want you to be in the right pair based on your proportions and your lifestyle. 

The Mercantile features products you can buy right here in our online store. Each and every product has to meet our extremely picky standards. We demand the highest quality from the curated group of artisans, artists and small-batch makers. We're always on the lookout for special things and when we fall in love, we want them in the Mercantile.
