An Early Beginning

Tony Lama is the world’s most legendary western boot brand. Instantly recognized as the boot of the American west since 1911, Tony Lama Boots are a breed apart. At age 11, Tony Lama stepped into the boot industry as an apprentice to a shoemaker learning the ins and outs of leather and boot trade. From that day forward, Tony Lama understood the importance of a quality, comfortable boot fit and set out to create the best boots around.

A Growing Business

The demand for the handcrafted, custom-made Tony Lama boots skyrocketed in a short period of time as cowboys and ranchers throughout Southwest Texas caught word of the unparalleled quality. To this day, more than 100 years later, the legacy created by the humble cobbler, a hard working entrepreneur with a fierce pride in his craft, lives on. The same commitment to quality is reflected in the corporation that bears Tony Lama's name today.

Each pair of prized Tony Lama boots are a true work of art, meticulously built by hand, crafted of the finest and most exotic materials, always provocative, always recognized.

Tony Lama offers boots made with incomparable craftsmanship by skilled boot-makers for men, women, and kids. No matter the occasion, you can count on Tony Lama to be indicative of the quality, comfort, and style of the modern western character.
