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.

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.
