Los Altos Men's Western Boots

You want a stylish cowboy boot, with arch support, and cradle comfort? 
Los Altos Boot Company has made a great handcrafted boot for decades.
Pricing is fair and the quality is higher than many!

We know you can find all sorts of western boots today. And to find a good pair sometimes gets confusing. Most of the major "brands" offer everything from not built so well to built very well.  This page, these Los Altos cowboy boots are targeted to those with a bit of discriminating taste.  ( Cheap ain't inexpensive! It's cheap! )    

What we've found is that the consistency and quality of these Los Altos shoulder leather boots allow us to be proud to provide them for you. How are the heel counters made? Sturdy! Why - the heel counter that you cannot see is what will determine whether your foot has a tendency to break over the outside of your heel. Once this happens, you not only lose support under your feet, they start to hurt.

Are the soles welted so that my boots can be resoled? Yes - This hand welting process takes a lot more skill than injection molding, which is why so many production brands are turning to that process. Skilled labor is in short supply and Los Altos offers attractive wage - you get a better product when the bootmakers care about your satisfaction.

The toe box is formed to allow breathability.  They do allow air to circulate without being trapped in your socks, will avert foot fungus, and thus will help the boot materials to last much longer.  Moisture flows through your socks, through the outside of your footwear.  This happens with the materials used in better dress boots. Your heel should slip a little when you step in your new boots. This pumps the air around your foot like the design was meant to be. The fore part of the boot should feel like a nice handshake.

How about the linings? Glove linings are the norm here and the rear of the shaft has enough support that the boot lining will not tear with the pressures of your putting on or pulling off your boot. You can trust these handcrafted cowboy boots to be moderate in price and way above moderate in longevity, and comfort. Also: the bed of your boot has a full cushioned lining on the inside to prevent "kicking up of the shorter heel pads used on many boots. 

    Decorative shaft stitching functions to keep the top from falling onto your ankles over time. The patterns are engineered through experience to enable support where needed, without limiting range of motion while walking or especially running in your boots. (They break in better.)  If a stitch pattern is more bold than your taste, Simply polish over the colors to dull them. 

We trust and know Los Altos knows bootmaking, and you can be assured of a great experience for many years to come!

Your feet just mold into the supple shoulder leathers. This leather has some texture. I find this to be a leather for dress or casual use. The snip toe is easy in & out of stirrups. It has been a traditional boot toe choice since cowboys have been riding saddles. Especially made popular in the Western movies of early 20th century. 
  So good on your feet, you'll have a hard time not wearing men's handcrafted boots for almost every occasion.  

This boot can be "Rock 'N Rolled" with boot trim. Your choices of toe tips, heel caps, and boot bracelets or chains.  Your choice of nickel, antique nickel, antique gold or gold tone styling will make you proud.

So, here are more pictures of this popular Shoulder Leather Western dress boot.

Front View

First, you'll notice the mild texture of this exciting leather. Definitely different on your feet than many cowboy boots.   Los Altos chose a ten row stitch which almost gives a "pillowed" look to the shoulder leather without having to add a layer of felt filler. 

The corded toe stitch pattern allows for proper break-in of the foot portion & looks fabulous. This combination of pattern of color & stitch adds "body" to the shafts.

    Snip toe with single row sole stitching is shown.



Notice the unique patterns of shoulder leather created by the 10 row stitch pattern on the shafts. This shoulder leather is combined with a great glove leather inner layer to offer less stretch and still remain softer on your feet than many cowhide leathers. The Los Altos bootmakers are careful to match patterns  for you. 

Snip toe with single row sole stitching is shown. 

Snip toes protrude further than your toes than in a wide square or roper toe boot. - It's part of the styling & allows more room for air to circulate around your toes. 

Slightly underslung Western heels are comfortable to walk and give enough height to allow a lot of arch support.



Medial side view of your Snip Toe cowboy boots. 
Single Stitched 3/4 Welted sole.
And the medial side, or side next to your body center line, is as well made as the lateral, or side away from your body centerline. This is important for balance. The 3/4 welt structure aligns with other inner mechanics for your inner arch support, especially if your riding stirrups, or footpegs. Look at how clean the heel base flows into this leather sole. 

Lateral View

(Any "squeaking" as the boot breaks in, soon stops as all that leather under your heel, (for dissipation of concussion), works its way into your individual heel bone/pad structure.)


Lateral view to the left. 


Shoulder leather, can be Great for "hard to fit" or asymmetrical feet because the glove leather linings & the outer leathers adapt well. This combination of boot leathers will be soft to feel, yet hold your bones in place properly.

Deep dip tops with sturdy pulls. 


Look how tight the heel counters, heel rands and heel base fit together for even more lateral support. When you hold the boot by the heel counter, you'll immediately know why these do not roll over to the outside like so many boots tend to do. 

This inner counter must be made of the best leather to withstand the rigors of tons of pressure you will exert as you move, doing what you do. 



Soles are leather 3/4 welted & stitched and can be re-soled down the road, by your preferred cobbler. 

Compare this quality to any!  You'll find these a bargain at our low price of :    Only $237.99 per pair.  

Available in these sizes, and widths:  

EE   6-12, 13


You'll notice the smooth top joining of this into the inner heel counter, the inverted inner side seams, and bottom heel padding, formed to hold in place a long time without working into your socks! 

Notice the quality glove leather linings, the hand skived connection of inner heel counter leather connecting to inner shaft leather (prevents breakdown), the soft leather heel pad under your heel, and the hand-formed heel rand area to hold your lateral support as it should be. 

You'll be proud for years while wearing these Handcrafted Western Boots.

It's not unusual to get three resoles, then re-welt & go again for more resoles! 


Care Products:  Leather Balm Cleaner Conditioner for deep cleaning. Pulls harmful dirt & dust out of the pores of your shoulder leathers.  You can use a worn out toothbrush to get into the crevices. 
Apache cream or Lexol for moisturizing the leather. (Leather needs moisturizers just like a ladies hands do.)
Buttercup boot cream (A neutral  wax polish will add another protective coat to guard against scuffs. And maybe a horsehair dauber brush to apply & soft horsehair finishing brush to buff out & shine. 
Sole Dressing keeps moisture from too much wetting and wear of the soles as you wear them through grass. Your soles will last considerably longer by often application of sole dressing. (Apply to sides of sole & heel block, and bottom of soles.)
Boot Bag - easily store or transport your boots when traveling, or in your closet.
