@danny, Somehow I drawn to those S.A. boots made by the 'old' craftsmen who made the Lucchese brand in their best period. I like that style very much,...but know for something completely different. Bought these 'unseen' but the look pretty special -at least to me- '50? very detailed 'toungue'-stitch,...any thought on these black gator beauties? CBBN maybe? I ask if there were any number inside and the guy said no so,...again any info always helps me a lot. The stories are part of the boots. Any news on the Uribe? grtz. TLBD

I am continuing to clean out my boot collection and have listed 6 pairs on ebay for sale ending this Sunday Nov. 9th at 8pm PST. 3 of the pairs are pictured below along with the auction numbers. Go to ebay.com and do "advanced search" for seller "turpin" or search using the item numbers listed below. Can anyone identify the maker of the black calfskin pair? They are top quality and beautifully crafted. Printed in the tops is "HANDMADE FOR DOC MUMFORD" and what must be the maker's initials and year made "KJ 95".

TLBD,

Those boots might have been made by Jesus "Jesse" Garcia (deceased in 2003), but more probably by his younger brother Gilbert (deceased in 2011). They were born in Nuevo Leon, Mexico and came to San Antonio in the 1920's as children with their family. Jesse was the master bootmaker at Lucchese for fifty years starting around 1935. Gilbert worked at Lucchese for over three decades, retiring from Luchesse in the late 1980's, then worked under his own Garcia Boot Company.

Alex,

From what I have heard, it is not good to adjust the heel more than 1/8 to 1/4 inch. It ruins your walk and balance. I don't know about a crease.

Hello! I am not as experienced as you guys are but I have a question! I was give a beautiful pair of buck skin boot that I absolutely love BUT they have a kick heel and I prefer roper heels. I'd like to resole the boot to the roper heel, but I have heard rumors that the boot will have to be cut or that the boot will have a weird crease mid way on the top and sides because of the differences in the angle caused by the different heel. Is this true or should I not worry about it?
