Numerous events require a tux or fancy dark business suit. If you want to escape looking like just one more in a herd of similarly dressed pinguins w/o resorting to some stupid looking polka dot bow tie, these boots are "the" ticket. The super supple leather uppers make them a bit hard to get on for me, but once on, they are wonderfully comfortable despite the lower portion being as tough and indestructible as any material I know of. They also go great with jeans, so i wear them with anything and everything and get constant complements. For every day, I more commonly wear my Heritage sharkskin boots, but for dressing up, you cannot beat these boots.
I have these in both black and brown. Although I have 5+ pairs of boots from Heritage, these are my daily "go to" boots.
They are comfortable, very tough (i've resoled each several times and the boots look like new), and look great with jeans or business suits. I ride motorcycles and the top left toe area fo many shoes gets worn looking from using the upshift on the bikes. Both pair of my sharkskin boots are still flawless - how they are so damn tough despite being comfortable I don't know, but they are. I have more expensive boots, but none are better or worn more often.
I own a bunch of boots - various makers, various types. I have not bought anyone else's boots since I bought my first pair of Heritage boots, such is the value and quality quotient and comfort. Of all my boots, I wear my French toe, brown sharks more than any other by far. My wife doesn't love the "wrinkly" style of the skin, and these are not fancy boots. What they are is indestructible, super useful and (while my wife and I may disagree), very stylish and cool.
I own and operate a heavily industrial business. While I own and enjoy dress shoes and loafers and wear such footwear to work with some frequency, I find that sturdy cowboy boots serve me best, given the varied environments in which I work. Yes, I may be in dress pants and speaking with business people over lunch, but during the day, I may be in a dirty wearhouse, climbing on a railroad car or up into the trailer of a truck... loafers don't always fit the bill; these always do. These boots more than any others can take a beating. Shark skin is chain mail. It is so tough. I would use the word indestructible even. Shark cleans up so easily: I spray on reptile skin cleaner and then wipe it off when it foams. I then put a high quality boot cream around the welt and clean up the heel. Done faster than any of my other boots.
I get compliments on these boots, usually from working men. "Is that regular leather?" is the question I'm asked a lot, and when I say "shark skin," people think that's really cool. I have other boots that dress up a bit better. If not working, I would wear other boots with dress trousers, but these will work for that fine. These boots work great with jeans. I'm not a motorcycle guy, but if I were, I think these would be fantastic for that application as they can take a beating and look absolutely AOK.
If you have not purchased Heritage Boots, let me tell you that the quality is second to none and the people who help you are awesome. Can't wait to buy another pair.
I'm at work right now wearing a pencil skirt, cotton shirt and these boots! I had no expectation that my Austin Packers would be more than the occasional gitty-up-goin'-out in jeans boot, but they are SO MUCH MORE. I wear them weekly, sometimes several times a week. These boots put my other booties to shame. Of course, the Heritage quality is there, but there is something about these AP's that make them go with everything from jeans, to flirty dresses, to smart business attire, to long and short skirts. And comfort? The leather is so soft and yet holds up like they are brand new.
I was looking for a classic boot that will last a lifetime and this is it. No break in time and it is so comfortable. I can wear with skirt, dresses or jeans. Best boots ever!
Second pair of Heritage boots (black corded are the others). This boot looks great and gets attention while not being over the top on design. The white stitching makes it.
This is my second pair of Heritage Boots and this pair of Shark Boots did not disappoint. They fit perfectly and I have now broken them in and they now provide all day comfort. I have many pair of Cowboy boots, but both pair of my Heritage boots are my favorites.
I have worn many a pair of boots (Urban Cowboy).... not only do these boots look fantastic, they exude quality and superb craftsmanship.
Not to mention the boot buying experience! Worth a trip to Austin in itself! We keep our Heritage boots on display and all others in the closet..
All I wear is cowboy boots and missed going to the store when I was in Austin but could not find a pee wee with a medallion. Usually wear roper style, called up spoke to my maitrin went through my sizing and ordered them up. The last on these is perfect, always worried that they may run small but they are true to size wore em right out of the box all day! Will be ordering some more with no hesitation, thank ya’ll
A.M.A.Z.I.N.G booties!! I am so in love with my Tabitha's ♥️. So comfy it literally feels like you are wearing slippers. Looks super chic with rolled up skinny jeans. Couldn't be happier with this little beauty. The mavens in the Austin store were so much fun to work with. Such a fun shopping experience!!
These boots are gorgeous!
Super soft. Beautiful details. Comfortable.
People stop me to ask about them.
I own several pairs of Heritage boots and these are my new favorite!
Everyone should own a badass pair of boots and these are them. On my second pair of Heritage. Th best boots hands down. Retro styling. Pick up a pair of JDs. You won’t be disappointed.
Love love love my heritage Liza Jane boots!!! Worth every penny. They are beautifully made and super comfortable.
Over the course of two months I researched a ton of boots. I live in Virginia and have worn a ton of shit kickers.You can stop searching now. These boots are the real deal...no joke and worth the money.
My first Heritage boots. After wearing two pair of Tecovas, no comparison. These boots are a perfect fit and the quality is unreal. Not broken in yet, still comfortable to wear all day. I’ll be buying more boots from Heritage. And Kimberly was great and a big help.
This is possibly the best fitting boot I have ever worn. I currently have eight pairs of name brand pricey boots but these started right out the shoot like a Champion. I'm saving up for another pair.
This is my second pair from HBC and OMG these are literally works of art!!! I like unique boots and these are show stoppers for sure! The leather is stunning, thick and buttery. The red is a gorgeous rich shade and I can’t not even begin to describe the coolness of the butterfly and eagle design. I have searched my entire adult life for the perfect red cowboy boots and I have FINALLY found them. Both of my pairs are PeeWees and they run a 1/2 size big. But that’s perfect for me because I add a padded insert and then they fit like a dream!!! They are costly, but worth every single cent! These boots will last a lifetime for sure and I can’t wait to grow my collection. I will never buy boots from any other retailer other then from my pals at HBC! Thanks for taking pride in your product. I will cherish these for life. Xoxox
This is my second pair of Heritage boots, and I still after months of purchase get folks telling me how unique they are. I probably give out the stores name once every two weeks. It was awhile until I could get the boots in my size, but I'm so glad I stuck out the wait. Thanks, for consistently making unique and faithful boots, for everyone!
I was visiting the USA last year in May from Australia and my last leg was Texas ( not a fan of Dallas) but Austin I loved . Bought these boots whilst there and they just had the right mojo I was after . I am looking forward to seeing some new boots soon and see what I might get from Santa ??
I dropped in the store expecting to be disappointed with availability for wide feet. I normally wear an 11 4E in Thorogood work boots. NOTHING in manmade cowboy boots fit my feet... and most stop at 2E width anyway.
Kimber was very helpful. She smiled in response to my doubts about finding a boot that fit wide feet.
I slipped into the first pair of size 11s she proffered - Sagebrush French toe - and felt "SOLD!" flash through my brain. I tried a few others just to experience variations but knew the Sagebrush was the perfect choice. I wasn't even planning on buying boots that day but I immediately knew I could not leave without them.
Saving my pennies for a pair of Heritage black boots!
I like this pair of boots so much. They fit like velvet gloves and they are smooth like this.
