These boots are made when you order them. You can customize the leather type and also if desired they can be made-to-fit. This means that they are custom made to your foot. This adds a level of fit quality to the boot. If you are always having to "break-in" your boots that you buy off the shelf and have foot issues I can build the boots to fit those issues. Do you have one foot that is a different size than the other and just never fits off the shelf boots correctly? I make each boot to match each foot. This does add cost but it also adds quality and comfort.
