Mingo's Boots
Made to measure boots
Western Chaps/Boots/Hats



Manufacturer: Mingo's Boots
Model: Made to measure boots
Category: Western Chaps/Boots/Hats

Purchase: I lived in El Paso,TX for a number of years and had worn bespoke boots for nearly 30 years. By accident, I stumbled upon Mingo's Boots in El Paso,TX so I stopped in to check them out. Their boots cost about $350 base price.

Likes: You can have perfectly fitted boots and shoes made at Mingo's. They take about 3 months to get onto your feet. If you have found yourself difficult to fit or just difficult to please, you should have boots made just to your tastes. The boots/shoes are made right there in the shop by very experienced workers. Quite a large variety of leathers and colors are available for selection. Stitch color, toe style, heel style, sole type, height of top, etc. can all be dictated and made to suit your wildest imagination.

Dislikes: There is nothing one would not like about bespoke boots/shoes.

Quality: Quality at Mingo's is very good. I do not find any cut-across licks made on what comes out of that shop. I like the stiffer shanks and they have various styles to choose from.

Summary: If you like 'one of a kind' items of any kind, you should have boots made just for you. Mingo's will do a very nice job and not cost near as much as many other bespoke boots/shoes. My preference is to visit them daily to check progress. As with many bootmakers, sometimes if you are not standing underfoot, they will add some of their own ideas to the build-up that might not be exactly to your liking.
