Shark Boot in Black

A great men’s boot in durable exotic black shark. The shaft is Italian calfskin stitched with red, orange and white. People will notice that spark of red piping down the side. Of course, it has the 60 lemonwood pegs and stacked leather heel—just like they were made 70 years ago. This boot is one of our best selling men’s boots. Men just love this hearty, good-looking boot!

Most comfortable boots I ever had

I have had these boots for about four months. I wear them around town and sometimes horseback riding. The durability of the shark skin doesn’t deter me from rough terrain. The comfort this boot gives was noticeable the first day of wear.

Best boots I've ever owned

Every time I wear these I get compliments. I've even been stopped on the street here in Seattle by older ladies to ask about the boots. I was expecting to get guff for an exotic leather (even though most sharks are plentiful - people make assumptions around here) and people tend to be more surprised that you can make boots out of fish skin.
Plus these boots are insanely comfortable. It took a bit of time before the counter softened up enough for me to get my feet into them easily, but now they fit like a glove. I recommend these highly and I'm saving for another pair from Heritage.

Great Looking and Very Comfortable.

Like Gus, this is my second pair of Heritage Boots. Also like Gus, my first pair was the Apache Brown Waxed Leather. Those are great looking as well, but these sharkskins are amazing looking boots. My pair have perfectly matched skins. There is a small ridge line that goes down the center of the boot to the toe. Great attention to detail by the boot maker. Both pair of boots are extremely comfortable. I got my Apaches in 2012 and these Sharks in 2014, so I have a lot of wear on both of them. Other than replacing the rubber layer of the heel on the Apaches, both pair look like brand new. I can't recommend Heritage Boots more,

3 years in (second pair I’ve purchased from HB)

My second pair of Heritage just turned 3. They’re only getting better with age, the thing is with these Sharks, which I wear 5X more than my Apaches, IS THEY DON’T AGE! They still look amazing even after all these years, miles, and TX dancehalls. This pair is responsible for multiple friends purchasing Heritage. I have client’s stopping me in my place of employment asking where I got these they’re so dang sharp! Don’t waste the money buying something that will start flaking, cracking, or disintegrating in under 2 years but cost the same. These are the real deal and heirloom quality. (My wife owns 3 pairs as well; The Palomino, The Enid, and a suede/turquoise Pair of which I can’t recall the name.)

To top it all off, the level of customer service we receive each time we’re in Heritage is hands down some of the best I’ve experienced, even when we’re just browsing and not purchasing. Don’t skip this little gem when in Austin!

I purchased these boots about two weeks ago and absolutely love them! They are super comfortable, easy to maintain, and look awesome! First pair with Heritage but certainly not the last!

The best thing I’ve ever put on my feet

I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for this place! Kimber was the first person to notice my baby bump and yesterday, that same baby WALKED with us into Heritage and helped us pick out our wedding boots! I’ve had my eye on Miss Holliday for years. Go ahead and try them on, and you’ll walk out the door with them on just like I did…because not only are they art on your feet, they’re like walking on a cloud. They’ll make you realize that you’ve been wearing the wrong boot all along if they aren’t from Heritage. And the customer service is the absolute best; I felt like I was hanging out with friends. I’ll update this with wedding photos!

If you’re only going to have one pair, these are the ones

I’ve been wearing my Heritage shark boots since 2013. They’re the most comfortable best fitting boot I’ve ever owned and get remarks each day I wear them (which is often). Thank You Heritage! Also, Heritage have my name and boot size now and have mailed me two other different sets of boots “sight unseen” via a phone call, that fit perfectly!

Worth. Every. Penny.

These are by far my favorite boots I own now and it’s not even close. The fit and comfort is honestly out of this world. I don’t wear my Luccheses and Justins anymore. I just never want to, now that I’ve tried Heritage.

The one, singular knock I will put against Heritage is the fit is non-standard. I really can’t stress and recommend enough that you go in person to try the boots on.
