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!

Hello, is there a reference manual or something that guide you along with collecting vintage boots? or someone that authenticates them? Guidelines and such? Thanks for any help you can give me. Sherry

Hi Steve, welcome to the site. If you go down the message list you will see both Cowboybootnut and I discussed Larry Mahan boots a few posts back. From your description, these boots appear to be Larry Mahan boots made by the HYER Boot Company in El Paso TX. The number 4105 is the size marking and denotes that they are a size 10.5D (4 = D 105= 10.5). So that is why they are snug on your 11D feet. The other numbers are company production info on style, leather etc. From your description not sure of the leather, posting a picture of them would be good. Hope this helps.

Dear sirs or madams. I have a pair of tan pork texture Larry Mahan boots, I need to ID the Numbers in the boots they all match. Here goes: Right front top 4105,just below it is 1 LMM 4935 B3M B830976..... The rear the same.... The Left boot front & rear all the same numbers... Thanks for any help on my boots, I bought the boots in the mid 80's Retail was around $ 325.00 they were on sale at a regular boot store & they were going out of business by Xmas.. The boots have the Larry Mahan seal on inside top of the pull straps & also say Made in Texas. The top part of the boots are fancy plain embossed both boots, the top part of the boot outside are for sure of the pork with the small pork looking (pebbles) that is normally on the real skin. When I put them on & I tried alot of brands & walked around in & out of the store the Mahans FIT LIKE A GLOVE my size is a 11 DD, but they are pretty tight across the top they never never stretched like I researched on boots, front & back gave oh about 1/4 " but I have a wide across the top foot & they have a pointed type toe they are not the rounded toe for sure. So any help would releave my thinking on these glove fitting boots. Thanks Steve Whitlow from the Gainesville, Fl. area...

Emmett-after looking at your link, for sure you are correct. I was thinking maybe they were worn by Mariachi players but maybe this was for someone who liked horses or worked with horses or..... Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Much appreciated.

Jude Langdon, I don't know who the maker is, but it looks like the embroidery on those boots is what is known as "piteado" which is a technique of embroidery using plant fibers done in Mexico. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piteado

Trying to add another picture for reference in identifying the boot.

Trying to identify these boots which I presume are vintage. Black Suede with heavy white embroidery depicting horse heads and foliage and geometric border.

Not a lot of wear so I think the bottom of the heels may be original They have an impression/outline of a western boot. Inside has only numbers
and no name or wording.

Thanks for any help.

Hi all, I believe their handmade range is limited to a Chelsea Boot-style. Grtz TLBD

They are well made, but I understand most style have automated processes involved. They have the famous craftsman signature range which are handmade and signed by the bookmaker. A google search suggests they are looking at opening a store in New York in the future. Maybe you could check them out there. I like them but am no boots expert.
