Another ‘Roman technique’ western style boot. Did a bit of fancy reveal and texture work followed by some gunstock orange stain and brown leather dye. Sealed with Shellawax and gently polished with a buffing wheel.

Now it’s party time and some Stampede Stomp!!!!!

Great looking boot. Nice job on the finish too…. looks like it has a spit-shine.

Nice, I like it. Probably not too comfortable though.

Very nice. I have a pair of Tony Lama alligator boots that look a LOT like the upper of that boot. Great job.

Sorry LittlePaw this one is a bit small for you.
Thanks Jaykapur, I was thinking ‘Gator skin” from Tony Lama. Thanks for the comments.

As usual Roman your work can stand any scrutiny up as close as you like, beautiful detail.
Do you ever make a Pair?? would it increase the sale value more than double?
