AMERICAN BUILT FOLKLORE BOOTS
Inspired by my Kinfolk's 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 50 + hours to complete.
I don't have an Apprenticeship program set up or work-shop Assistants, so when you order a Heirloom Boot from me your getting my absolute attention to detail and achievement, you are receiving a uniquely built functioning work of American Labor.
* BOOT ORDERS 2021*
KREOSOTE will schedule and complete the building of 35 pairs of Kustoms
for 2021, the Boot Order wait list has reached 18 months.
If your interested in my craftsmanship, patience is a virtue I admire.
I value my clients commitment and honor their support of the type of hand built boots I make, and the time in which 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 boots through these challenging times.
