          KUSTOM BOOTS


 KREOSOTE is a Kustom (Made to Measure) Traditional Shoemaking operation that produces a limited number of hand-built boots each year.

 Each boot requires approximately 70+ hours on the Work Bench from start to finish and there is a 42 month for the turnaround process from the time pre-paid orders are finalized for scheduling.


 After selecting your boot from the KREOSOTE series, send a (Direct Message) in the Contact Form bellow, to set up a Date & Time your available to have a phone chat with Gabbard about your Boot order.

We will conclude with another Date and Time for us to conduct a personalized Skype meeting so that I may assist you in your foot tracings and measurements if needed.


                 Foot Sizing

 KREOSOTE Boots are Kustom Lasted using Width sizes B, C, D, E, EE as starting point.


Each LAST is then (built up) using Veg Tanned leather that are added to the LAST to accommodate the clients individual feet measurements. 

 I suggest that you have your feet measured 

 at your local shoe store with a Brannock device if possible, allowing you to see the most recent and accurate Length and Width measurements as a starting point for your foot reference.
