I recently acquired a pair of simple black custom made boots with the maker's mark pictured below stamped in the tops. It reads: CUSTOM MADE BY R.C. SHAFFER, DENVER COLORADO and his initials hand written. His business GREAT WEST BOOTMAKERS DENVER is also stamped in the tops. I can find little info. on the web about him or his shop. Looks like he was making custom boots in the 1990's in Denver. Has anyone here ever heard of him or know anything about him or the shop? Thanks

I've been keeping an eye on them, but resisted the urge to drop the $$$.

Nice boots.

@Eddie Perez – I've never used them since I live in CA, but you might try Houston Shoe Hospital:

I want to dye my boots a different color. They are a bone color. Any suggestions as to who can do a good job in Houston area?

@Bigfoot66, a true cowboy/western boot will have nothing but a leather insole and a thin leather heel pad. This allows the insole to form to the wearers foot. Having them resoled won't resolve a fit issue. You can try an aftermarket insole if you find them comfortable. What I have done in the past is trace an outline of my foot on some scrap leather and cut it to fit inside a boot. This has helped if the boot is just slightly too big. Hope this helps.

Was able to get a Luchesse full quill ostrich rounded toe for $100. They sell for $700 regularly. Definitely were worn but that's the best part of them. Look really good.

Heels and soles are needing redo but my question...the insoles are flat. By that I mean no cushion at all. Right on top of leather sole which makes them a little loose..enough to rub. And that's my true size. If I get them resolved/heeled is there something I can ask for to alleviate this? Are there better places out there who do this?

Hey guys, I've had these on before and some were interested, so here they are again, till I find a new home for them. I have 2 pair of RAY JONES BOOTS of LAMPASAS for sale. They are awesome boots, but due to my health I can no longer wear them..so.. the first is a black with blue tops, size 12c, they are pristine condition..the second pair are the same color but 9 1/2 d, and are in decent condition, but they have seen some wear as they were my personal pair. Feel free to email to coralie191968@yahoo.com if interested. MERRY CHRISTMAS

@kylecloutier re: the Tony Lama's sizing, there should be a 3-digit # inside for the size, e.g. 275 would be a 7.5 B width. First # width, 2nd & 3rd size. Nice pair of Ringtail Lizard boots!

They are not marked for size, however they fit like a women's size 9.5-10 or men's 8.5-9. I normally wear a 9 and they are about a size too large for me. I would be happy to get measurements though. ( Obviously, this is US sizing.)
