ESaladbar1605,

Not familiar with that brand of boots, it is full welted which usually signifies a lower-end factory boot. The vamp doesn't look like water buffalo to me, looks more like a sueded shark, or hippo.

I found these boots in this box in an old store with lots of vintage deadstock items. It says Walker in gold lettering on the inside pull up straps. The box is missing the top flap so I do not know if this is the original box. It seems as if all of the shoes were in original boxes in the store. They are marked made in the US and out of water buffalo. Any help dating and branding information would be great. Thank you.

Mark- Thanks for the lead on the black boots. I thought they might be T.O. Stanley boots, but the pulls and toe bugs were different from another pair of his boots I own. When I visited his website, I discovered he offers 7 different boot pull styles and 3 different toe medallions! A couple of them match the ones on these boors, so I am sure your suspicion that they are T.O. Stanley boots is correct. I went ahead and emailed Mr. Stanley just to confirm. Thanks for the info. You have helped me in the past to ID bootmakers of custom and vintage boots I have come across. Regards, Steve

I wish those Stallions were 10.5D.

I pretty certain the black boots with the crepe soles are TO Stanley's, that looks like his handwriting.

I have 7 pairs of boots up for sale ending on Sunday July 20th at 8PM PDT. These are some of the nicest boots I have ever listed, most of them are custom made or exotic leather. See some of them pictured below. I am cleaning out the "collection" of boots I don't/can't wear. Maybe they will fit someone here who wears or collects custom boots.
Go to eBay.com and do advanced search for seller "turpin" or search for items

CBBN, they are a better quality than most'Border Boots; nice double row pegging, thick leather soles and nice attention to detail....I do not know who made them but they definitely knew what they were doing. Not to demean Border Boots, there were some nice ones made in that 'area'.
