Q. and A. with Caiden, grandson of the founder of Fenoglio Boot Co. Can you describe the process of making a pair of boots, from the first step to the final? While Kansas may have been first by a few years, Texas has endured as the cowboy boot-making capital of the world. They do not currently have a sales or design team; they use a direct sales approach and currently build a private label for the largest, independent western retailer in the country, Cavendars. The stitch that connects the bottoms to the tops is called a fitting stitch.
Folks from Kansas will argue the first cowboy boots were built by Charles Hyer, of Hyer Brothers Boots, in Olathe, Kansas.
As for the fit in general, certain people claim that certain brands fit them better than others, and that may be true. Larger companies will use a steel shank that it much cheaper than the option we stick with – a fiberglass shank.
One trimming process, which we call rough rounding, takes us to the sole stitching.
The Leather Retailers' and Manufacturers' Journal. Churches Non Denominational in Santa Fe NM, Medical Equipment Supplies in Schenectady NY. After sole stitching, we peg the shank into place. These are big boots to fill, but the Fenoglios and their boot-making family truly believe in living up to the company motto: There’s nothing finer than Fenoglio. (Mexico is a dominant producer in footwear; only 20% of the footwear in Mexico is imported.). The shank is what goes in the arch of the foot to give it good form and support. A boot starts with finished hides, meaning the tanning, dying, distressing, etc., of the leather is done before we receive the hides. We then cut these into the appropriate sizes and shapes – top panels, vamps, counters, shaft lining, vamp lining. Non-exotic leather would be cowhide, bullhide, pig, goat or bison. The front and back panels have to be put together at this point. In a few years’ time, word had spread about the quality of cowboy boots being made by Justin Boots. This is a small operation (by big boot corporation standards) and that’s just fine with the boot makers in Nocona, some of whom have been crafting boots for over 40 years. What are the signs of a quality pair of boots?
With his business growing, Daddy Joe relocated a few miles south to the booming town of Nocona, Texas. The time frame for personalized boots varies pretty significantly, depending on the time of year. Fenoglio is the largest, independently-owned U.S. western boot manufacturer, Caiden said, stating that the “big guys” outsource many of their boots from Mexico and China. If you get deep into the anatomy of a boot, you want to look at the material of the shank. After that, they are boxed and either sent to our store in downtown Nocona or shipped directly to the store that’s shelves they will sit on until the day they are bought and worn. The seam where those come together is called the side seam.
She was an early feminist entrepreneur, who decided to keep the family business alive in Nocona.
Fenoglio is 100 percent built in Nocona, Texas, a small town with a great history of fine boot making. I bought a custom made pair of boots through a charity auction earlier this year for a little girl with a very rare disease. If you ever heard a boot squeak, often you are hearing something going wrong with the shank. The small group of men and women persevered in building boots the traditional way, and though theirs was a small operation through the mid-2000s, they were able to keep the boot-making tradition alive. Share it on your social network to get the word out! With the boot shell complete, we go to lasting. With the boot lasted, we staple the vamps (bottoms) to the insole. The Fenoglio Boot Co. is fast becoming a brand that not only locals, but all Texans and foreigners alike value for the fine materials and workmanship. The last that you use determines the toe, width and exact size of the boot.
