These spur straps are cut from the back of the skirting leather side to give you a very durable strap. The straps are basket stamped by hand and have a hand braided rawhide loop keeper. The leather beneath the stainless steel buckles are sewn together to keep the buckles in place. The inside button cover is also basket stamped. Button covers are an important safety factor so when working your colts, horses or cattle on foot you don't get your buttons caught and get tripped.
