How to Pick a Pair of Cowboy Boots : The Materials & Design of Cowboy Boots


Hi. I am Dustin Williams here at A.A Callisters
on behalf of Expert Village. Today I’m going to talk about different types of leathers.
Basically there is two major groups. One is going to be domestics and others are going
to be exotics. Now you might ask well, what am I gonna be using what for what? Domestics
basically when it comes to mind cow skin obviously and there’s lot of different types of cow
skin out there. Different types of varieties. Now you’ll see here there also a deer skin
like these ones here. Which are supple. It just depends on what you’re going to be using
it for. Then when you got, you’re kind of sick of your domestics we’ve got exotics.
And the exotics come from every animal under the sun. Mostly reptiles. We have you’ll see
here mostly Nile crocodile. We have American alligator. Taywho lizard which is an Argentine
lizard. Some iguanas. We have, we have some shark skins here. Oh, here’s elephant, elephant
here. Now you might say hey they are endangered but now there are restrictions on these here.
They can only be farm raised. There’s elephant. We also have, if I can find them. We have
horse skin which is here now. That might be a little hypocritical a cowboy being, wearing
some horses but they’re very soft and very supple but strong. Much like ostrich. Ostrich
is also used in a lot of boots. And that’s just a few samples that we have here.
