BOOT CARE

In general we recommend non silicon based conditioner. We recommend testing it on a small inconspicious area of the boot before applying it in the entire boot. Please use leather products on leather only and avoid areas with embroidery, crystals, studs. Please email Customer Service for additional information on conditioning your Old Gringo Boots. 

Each pair or boots and leather used are unique and different. Boot care depends on the work type and the leather. You can find detailed instructions on our Boot Care page.

OLD GRINGO FIT

Our boots in general run true to size. However the style and silhouette of the boot also dictates the exact fit and may vary at times, making any given style a half size larger or smaller. If you run between sizes we recommend going with the larger of two sizes. It is much easier to make a larger size smaller with use of an insert or thicker athletic sock.

We do have relaxed fit options for some of our Old Gringo Signature styles. You can find them under our Relaxed Fit Section. We also have a large selection of 10 inch and under boots & shoes that are not affected by the size of the calf.

FINDING STYLES

Please email Customer Service to locate an older style. Please provide us with the style number, the picture of the boot, location/site last seen and the size needed.

Please contact Customer Service if you would like to place a special order. Every request is unique (given the volume of our designs and styles, we will need to consider each request individually). We will also try our best to assist you in locating the style with any of our retail partners.

We do not stock or restock every item available on the website. If you cannot find a style anymore, it probably is out of stock and we may not be restocking it, or the style has been discontinued and we cannot make it. We update the website with our newer collections and remove styles from previous collections. If you have a question on a particular style, please contact [email protected]

Our retailers carry their own inventory of styles which vary from what we carry on our online store. Please reach out to Customer Service and we can help you locate a specific style.
