Old Gringo Boots is a manufacturer of 100% handmade boots. The brand is known for its distinctive look, unique and versatile styles and quality of craftsmanship and materials. The brand was started by the founders, Yan Ferry (4th generation French Shoe Cobbler and Founder of Liberty Boots) and Ernest “Ernie” Tarut the “Old Gringo” (Founder of Baja Trading Company).
One day over a decade ago, during a western market, Yan and Ernie developed what we know today as Old Gringo Boots. They drafted an agreement on a yellow legal pad and closed the deal with a hand shake. They embarked on the adventure to create the best fitting boots made from the finest leathers available that will become your favorite boots for years to come.
It has always been about creating that perfect pair of boots that will fit like a glove and look even better the older they get. We cater to a variety of tastes from Vintage to Contemporary enabling every woman to express her unique self.
Every Old Gringo design is perfectly balanced. We produce and tan our selected leathers in textures, colors and finishes unique to Old Gringo. You can’t rush quality, boots are given the time to cure naturally, to ensure exceptional fit and some styles may take up to 3 days to make one pair.
Trends come and go but Old Gringo stays. Like a little black dress, Old Gringo is forever fashionable.
