Tony Lama cowboy boots have a long history of quality craftsmanship. Tony Lama entered the boot industry as an apprentice to a shoemaker at the young age of 11. As an apprentice, he learned the importance of quality, comfort, fit, and the ins and outs of the leather and boot trade. Later he joined the U.S. Calvary as a cobbler and was stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas. And after completing his service in 1911, Tony Lama opened a shoe and boot repair shop in El Paso, Texas on East Overland Street. Over the next few decades the demand from cowboys and ranchers for handcrafted, custom-made Tony Lama boots grew rapidly, and soon as Tony Lama Boots became legendary in the Southwest. In 1946 Tony Lama made custom cowboy boots for the President of the United States, Harry S. Truman.
By the late 1960s Tony Lama Boots became known around the world as innovators in style and technology. It was then that Tony Lama Boots moved to a larger factory in El Paso where they are still located today. More than 100 years later, the legacy of Tony Lama Boots lives on through the brand’s commitment to quality and authentic craftsmanship.
