Thanks Nama,I was wondering about the inside to.I have them in a room that's dedicated as an office too and I'm gone more than I'm here so I don't run the air much.I wonder if a dehumidifier would work?I looked yesterday and found a pair that was growing a beard!When I was on a buying kick a couple years back from eBay they always say ""Comes from pet free,smoke free home"well one guy had them listed by saying "I ONLY CAUGHT MY DOG WEARING MY BOOTS AND SMOKING MY BEST CIGARS ONCE"!got a kick out of that one !! Thanks Nama..Sincerely, Jerry

Jerry,
I've had some mold issues before when I stored my boots in a small closet. Gets pretty humid here, also. Don't use any bleach. I typically cleaned mine with a small amount of Ivory dish soap in a bucket of warm water using a lint free cloth. You will need to clean them inside and out then use clean water and your rag to wipe away any soap residue. After they dry condition them. I use Bick 4. A good moisture control product is Damprid. Get it at Lowes and such. Getting boots off the floor helps as well. Hope this helps.

I should get a pair of those boots(summer) then I could be the "POOLCOWBOY" I already wear a nice straw cowboy hat but I don't think wearing them with shorts would go over too good lol

Hi folks it's been a long time since I've posted.Busy which is good.Since I'm in the pool business son here in Florida I hardly ever get to wear my boots(probably a little over 100).Question is it common for boots or leather to get moldy if they are unattended for periods of time? And is it damaging to the leather to use a mild soap and a drop of bleach to clean them up? I mean a drop in a 5 gallon bucket and a terry cloth rag?? Maybe someone else lives in a humid climate and knows a way to prevent this??? Sincerely, Jerry

TLBD,
Nice. So impressed with your finds and all the traveling a pair of boots can do. May look for a pair when the snow melts. Too many leaks.

I think those mesh boots are TOs. Ammons also made boots similar to TOs, but that looks like TOs handwriting.

A lot of bootmakers made those "summer" boots.

Museum seeks Lange boots
Posted: Tuesday, December 30, 2014 4:00 pm

Lange's Boot Shop

The Museum of the Big Bend needs your boots.
Curators are planning an exhibit in February and March featuring Alpine bootmaker G. Kurt Lange.
If you or a family member have a pair of boots that were built in the Lange boot shop or other Kurt Lange materials that you are willing to loan for this exhibit, please call Mary Bones at 432-837-8734 or email maryb@sulross.edu.
In 1939 Russell Lee traveled to Alpine where he photographed the art of bootmaking at Kurt Lange’s Bootshop. Lange, a native of Dresden, Germany, was born on Feb. 29, 1888. He immigrated to America and arrived in Galveston in 1905.
After working with H.J. “Joe” Justin in Nocona and owning a shop in Ozona, he moved to and opened a bootshop in Alpine in 1911, which he operated until 1959. This exhibit includes the story of Lange and photographs of his men building a pair of boots.
The Museum of the Big Bend is on the campus of Sul Ross State University in Alpine. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays-Sautrdays and 1-5 p.m. Sundays. Free admission; donations welcome. 432-837-8730 or visit www.museumofthebigbend.com.

TLBD,
 True on the red stitch and I'm no graphologist, but the style of the handwriting is very similar to what I've seen on his older boots
