TLBD, nice find. They seem to be in great shape for an older hoot.

Very nice. Sea Turtle from mainstream manufacturers are getting hard to find.

CBBN...Thank you, again. And if you do come across that catalog, I'd love to see a page or two.

Rhythm and Boots,

I don't know much about Palace other than what you found on the Internet. I do have a copy of an old catalog that I will look for, and a pair of Palace Boots made for Johnny Crawford of "Rifleman" fame.

Palace Boot Shop, Houston, TX. 1919-2005. I've read pretty much everything I could find about them online. I'm hoping some contributers can offer some personal information or anecdotes. It seemed like an old-school kind of shop. It was near the courthouse, and several lawyers and judges would walk there during lunch to order boots. Thank you.

Hey, friends. I'll upload an image in a little while when I get the pictures taken.

I happen to have a really beautiful, near pristine, pair of Stewart-Romero boots, red in color.

They are size 6.5 C (mens size, translates to 8.0 medium womens). These are certainly more than
sixty years old (Stewart-Romero was only made from 1940 to 1955), but they have no dings or flaws.

They are so lightly used that one can still see the original imprint on the soles, and the
brand name on the heels shows almost no wear. The yellow and green stitching retains its original
color, and the cloth pulls are intact.

I've had several pairs of Stewart-Romeros, some in exceptionally fine condition, but these are the
best I have ever seen.

If you are interested in these for a collection or to wear, send me a note and I'll provide pictures.

Contact Tom Cartledge with Olsen Stelzer. I think most of the Ammons employees are working for Tony Lama, but contract work out to OS.

Anyone know what happened to Ammons Boots? I've got a pair of their boots with belly gator vamps and heels, and steer head inlay on the tops. Vamps and tops are in fantastic condition, but the soles are trashed. Would like to get them properly re-soled.

@Tony Burch, those other boots are TO's as well. Should have a stitch on the other side that slightly resembles a T.

@Tony Burch, boots are hard to put a price on. They're worth what people are willing to pay according to the skins and the rarity of the boot. Your best bet is to check eBay listings and history. They're are quite a few TO's listed and they range for sale the $250 to $1800 range. Those look to be smooth ostrich from your photos. From what I've seen people tend to over price their used TO's as there are a lot of them out there. I bought a "like new" pair of full kangaroos for $250 not long ago. They make a nice boot and yours appear to be in good shape. You may be able to contact T O to find out what they sold for but be careful in letting that determine what you want to sell them for. Hope this helps.
