I met him a few years ago at the Wichita Falls Round Up. He didn't seem too old.

Here is the link to the article about Leonard Smith of "No Name Boots" that is interesting and mentions Jimmy Ayers.

Hi cowboy boot collectors and wearers. I just got a pair of Jimmy Ayers custom boots off of eBay (see pics below) and wondered if any of you owned a pair of his boots, knew or ever met him, or had any info on him? Looks like he was a respected bootmaker and was located in Anthony Tx and Estancia NM at different times. An article about another bootmaker, Leonard Smith of "No Name Boots" of Otis Orchard, WA. says he studied with him, so maybe Mr. Ayers also took on students? He is listed in the back of Tyler Beard's book, but I can find little else online. I believe Mr. Smith is now deceased and maybe also Mr. Ayers? Any info about him would be appreciated. Thanks, Turpin

Yes, nice pair! As @CBBN says, Lucchese made these boots out of the hide of a steer named T.O. Pride. Here's the reference from page 55 in '100 Years of Western Wear' by Tyler Beard. You might want to contact Lucchese directly about them to see how many pairs were actually made, etc.

I am not certain but I think the TO Pride boots were from a prize steer. There was a reference to the boots in one of the first boot books.

I have a pair of side zip western style boots that I cannot identify. There is a logo on the insole. I have enclosed pics of the logo. Any idea what these are. Thank in advance!

Hey fellow boot collectors! I recently acquired the boots pictured below. Quality and style is close to Lucchese, but
they aren't. Stamped inside with size so don't think they are custom but high end factory boots. Distinctive boot pulls and toe bug. Does anyone here know the bootmaker? Thanks

Hi all, In true country music fashion, I'm going through a divorce and needing to sell some of my collection to help pay for my attorney. I have for consideration a pair of full sea turtle, 11D custom made Montana boots from my horse trading grandfather's collection from the 70's. Here is an album link: http://bit.do/vtgseaturtle

I'd like to get $2500 for them as they are such a rare collectors' item. They are 11 3/4" heel to toe, just under 4.5" wide. Please let me know if you're interested in reply or via email: schaumby@gmail.com Thanks!
