AMERICAN BUILT FOLKLORE BOOTS
Inspired by an Era of American Heritage Storytelling.
JD Gabbard is a One man operation that single handedly bench-builds a Limited number of originally designed Kustom boots each year, using Traditional (Cordwainer) European /American Shoemaking methods that require 70+ hours to complete.
Their isn't an Apprenticeship program set up or work-shop Assistants here at KREOSOTE Boots, so when you order an Heirloom Boot you're getting my absolute attention to detail.
You are receiving a uniquely built functioning work of American Labor.
KREOSOTE will only schedule and complete the building of 35 pairs of Kustom Built Boots each year.
I value my clients commitment and honor their support of the type of hand built boots I make, and the time it takes to build them.
With great admiration, I will continue to support American Tanneries and the American made supply materials that are used to build KREOSOTE boots.
It is the tenacity of these Companies and workers that continue to help and define the foundation of my work.
