Tony Lama concentrated solely on making quality Western boots.
These Bark Santa Fe boots from Tony Lama have a beautiful bark tooled wingtip 11" upper with a snip toe, cushioned insole, and they have a 3/4 welt leather. These beauties are from the Tony Lama Vaquero Collection.
In the early 1900s, Tony Lama joined the U.S. Cavalry as a cobbler for the soldiers stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas. After the army phased out its horse soldiers, Tony Lama concentrated solely on making quality Western boots. To meet the growing demands in the 1930s, Tony Lama developed methods to produce greater quantities without sacrificing the key steps in hand crafting. The legacy created by the humble cobbler, a hard working entrepreneur with a fierce pride in his craft, lives on in the corporation that bears Tony Lama's name today.
