Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How come your Senior boots cost $699 as against $1600 offered by our competitors? Am I compromising on the quality?

We support the tradition of Aggie Senior boots. It is a right of passage and pride for the cadets and their families. We have eliminated the middlemen, and source leather from the tanneries and employ cobblers. The result, cost savings which we pass along to you. Hassle-free shopping brought directly to you.

 

  • I will be a sophomore in the upcoming calendar year, is it too early to order?

As long as you have stopped growing we recommend getting fitted, that gives us ample time to make a quality boot and have the first fitting and any alterations needed.

 

  • I will be a junior in the following calendar year and I am not certain if my boots will arrive by the Final Review weekend?

We are well aware of the pride and tradition of wearing the Senior boots at Final Review and are committed to being a part of this tradition. We plan to have the first fitting by winter 2018 and make adjustments (if needed) and deliver in time for final review. 

 

  • What is the chance that the boots fit right the first time?

97% of our boots fit right the first time and we promise on-time delivery. In the event adjustments are needed we will be happy to take care them for you.

 

  • There are some spots and blemishes on the leather, is that a defect?

No. The leather used in our boots is all-natural and these marks are on the skin of the animal. The bug-bite, barbed wire scratches, horn scratches, etc, leave a permanent mark on the skin. We use an environmentally friendly tanning process and try to maintain the original full-grain upper of the hide. The hides have some scratches and some blemishes which gives character to the skin.

  • I subscribed to your list, will you share my information?  

We respect your privacy and will never share your data.

 

  • I love my boots - but how do I take care of them?

Use horsehair brush to clean them off.  Condition...condition..condition. Then polish...polish..polish.​ Do not apply polish till you have conditioned. Use Kiwi leather lotion and Becks 4 to condition the boots. At least 5 to 6 times and letting it dry in between coats.Then apply Venetian shoe cream to shine. Use mink oil (ONLY on soles) to help waterproof the soles. Make sure that it does not come in contact with harsh chemicals and cleaners. It will damage the leather permanently.
