Some folks, like Chihuahua, tend to place their bets on style, while others, like me, prefer to pour our hard-earned dollars into substance. But with Corral Boots, you never have to sacrifice cowboy style for well-made rancher durability, because all Corral products are created by some of the finest leather craftsmen in the world.
Going back more than a hundred years, the most accomplished bootmakers in the world have made the pilgrimage to Leon, Mexico, which has earned the reputation as the “Boot Making Capital of North America” to hone their skills and become masters of their craft. Corral employs Leon’s “best of the best boot makers” who, in turn use only the finest exotic materials and expert hand craftsmanship to turn out every pair of shoes and boots they create.
Which is what makes them one of the few things that Chihuahua and I can agree on.
Corral’s Classic Western Style for the Modern Cowboy
The other night after work, I couldn’t help but notice a little extra swagger in Chihuahua’s stride. Sure enough, I looked down, and what was he was sporting, but a pair of Corral’s finest Brown Tobacco And Bone Wing & Cross Square Toe Boots? These boots, hand-tooled with a classic cross-and-wing openwork design, and fashioned from distressed, two-tone brown Nahm goat leather, are a fine example from Corral’s Retro Collection that’s chock full of the kind of boots that make a bold, sophisticated fashion statement without screaming, “HERE I AM! NOTICE ME!”
That’s when I noticed that Chihuahua was standing with a fine cowgirl on the sidewalk, holding hands, eyes all a twinkle. And then what did I spy with my little eye? Yep. She was wearing Brown Turquoise Crosses from Corral’s Retro Collection for Ladies. The combination of openwork and superlative embroidery matched with the stacked heel and narrow-square toe on her Corrals would set the heart of any real cowboy racing.
All-Occasion Corral Boots for Ranch, Play or Every Day
’Course, Chihuahua ain’t the only cowboy at this rodeo to own Corral boots. In fact, I’ve got two pair: My go-to pair is Corral’s super-comfortable distressed goat leather Brown Nahm Ranchers. Square-toed, with the finest quality stitching, 1 3/4” heels, and heavy-duty soles that are built to last, you just can’t beat Corral Ranchers for work … or some down-and-dirty, off-road play.
But truth be told, I’ve also got my “Sunday” classic Corral Cowboy Boots. We’ve all got occasion to put on a suit and tie, but with this black leather with python inlay pair, I’m styling, but I won’t get laughed off the ranch.
If you’ve got a like-minded, no-nonsense gal in your life, you wouldn’t go wrong gifting her with a pair of Corral Ladies’ Black Cowboy boots, either. Real cowgirls will appreciate them not only for their quality and workmanship, but for the fact the beautifully detailed, two-tone, tooled leather-and-stud pattern covers practically every part of the boot — except the sole.
