Stingray Boot

A true exotic boot, equally at home with a worn pair of 501s or a tux. This awe-inspiring black boot is a must for every serious boot collector. Stingray leather has a unique granular pattern that makes it instantly recognizable. The hide is pretty supple and smooth to touch – despite the presence of granules that have the toughness of ceramic. Each pair is crafted with perfectly matched skins - resilient and elegant.

Life Changing Boots

I bought these in September 2015 on a whim at the South Congress showroom. Frankly, the best purchase of my entire life! First off, these boots still look fantastic after years of wear. This skin is extremely durable, and holds up well. These boots can handle light moisture, too. The soles lasted me about 4 years of extremely heavy use, before I had them replaced. The comfort level of these boots is off the charts for me. I'm a size 10.5-11 in sneakers, but for these boots I am a 9.5. Most importantly? Wearing these boots is like being in public with a really cute dog. They are a conversation starter. People will see my boots from across the room, and come talk to me about them. It's a great way to meet people, if you're looking to meet people when you're in public. Also, the versatility is epic here. I've worn these boots with a tux at a wedding, and with jeans and a t-shirt. They get compliments no matter where I go and, they fit any occasion. Stingray boots are rare, and this particular skin has the appearance of diamond pave. It's really a stunning leather in person, and I couldn't recommend these more highly.

Out of this world

These boots are definitely a statement piece and beg for attention when walking about. The break in period for Heritage soles isn't bad and these are no exception, well softened and comfortable in a few full days of walking and surely fitting like a glove in a couple weeks. The uppers do seem to be stiffer and hold their shape very well but that is to be expected. The look and feel of the sting ray is just fabulous not to mention durable as heck. While they may seem flashy on their own, it is easy to dress the black with anything. Finally with little to no maintenence of the sting ray, these boots are a dream! Shout out to the lovely boot mavens who make every visit to the gallery a pleasure.

the best tux boots ever - and they still work with jeans

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.

Apache Boot in Black

10 Out of 10

Or 5 out of 5 in this case. You just can't understand how good they are until you have them on your feet. Excellent quality materials and finish, so good in fact it seems a shame to wear them for fear of scuffing them up. They feel really light and comfortable and fit perfectly. Man that's a good pair of boots. From time to time you get lucky and feel like you got more than you paid for and that is exactly how I feel about these boots. I'll break them in and update my review. - Cole, 11/18/2022.

Next-level black boot

I’m a Heritage Boot fanatic. As always, these have a great profile and are super comfortable. The roses just take them to the next level. I get compliments every time I wear them!

Anything-but-basic black boots

I got these beauties on a recent trip to Austin and they find their way on to my feet an awful lot. They are a beautiful solid black and sharpen up everything from long flowy dresses to mini skirts to jeans. The stitching is completely amazing and beautiful—subtle and eye popping at the same time.

“Jaw Tighteners”

Now in retirement, I’ve often reminisced of my youth, working a cattle ranch with my Dad.
Among all those memories the most cherished was when my father and I measured our feet for some custom handmade boots from some fancy outfit out of Arizona. Now, they were expensive so this was a one time deal! Mine were made of sharkskin! I was styling!
That was over forty years ago and my Dad has long passed …. but I still think of those sharkskin Cowboy boots.
Fast forward and here I am re-living that special moment. I purchased some “Jaw Tighteners” of a pair of boots from Heritage ….. and yes, they are made from sharkskin.
These boots are made with every bit of quality and craftsmanship as those custom mades I bought all those years ago. The only difference ….. the price! The Heritage “Rough Waters” I bought were half the price! Same Quality … Half the Price!!!
Let the Mavens at Heritage set you up ….. you won’t regret it!

Magnificant

My third pair of heritage and maybe the best. As always, its not only the incredible 3d work of art in the design, but the quality of the leathers and elegant and comfortable last. Wore them out of the store and walked for over a mile without issues. Did not think i could pull off the snip toe but i was wrong. These are sharp, elegant and fun. Well Done
