Old Gringo

Old Gringo Logo
Since 2000, Old Gringo® has been focused on a single goal: combining the best materials with the most highly skilled craftsmen. Beautiful designs and comfort are not accidents. It's all about bonding a time honored handcrafting art and a contemporary flair for fashion. Old Gringo strives to give their customers a product that embodies style and quality.

Founders Yan Ferry and Ernie Tarut decided to combine Yan's bootmaking and design skill with Ernie's years of experience in leather manufacturing to create boots of superior style and quality. Thus Old Gringo was born. The first Old Gringo factory opened in 2000 with a collection of original, vintage and retro styles. These styles bridged the gap between western style and pure fashion.

Every Old Gringo boot goes through one hundred-ten individual steps, performed by skilled craftsman. This is a very time-intensive process, but the consistent application of these skills is required to make a superior quality boot. Old Gringo produces and tans their own leathers in colors, textures and finishes to meet the meticulous demands of their designers. After carefully selecting the finest grade of leather, the leathers undergo a detailed tanning process. Each of the next steps, from cutting the upper materials to assembling the insoles and outsoles are critical in the construction of the perfect boot.

I never thought I would ever pay this much for a pair of boots in my life, but I splurged on these. I love them but I must say its a good thing my calves are tiny or they would not fit, they are very tight. Also they are a nightmare to get off, I finally waited until my husband arrived to help me. But I have received endless compliments on them and the grey color goes with everything! I am petite but the tall boot relaxes once it is worn enough so I don't mind that the height hits my knees or thereabouts. I am a definite old gringo fan.

Oh my studs and straps and buckles! Exactly the foot jewelry I was looking for. These have superior quality materials and craftsmanship. The balls of my feet were snarking at me with a minimum of walking. Some foot pads will solve that problem. I'm a solid size 9 and the 9 fits perfect with sneaker socks.

These boots are absolutely beautiful!!! Love Old Gringo boots - the sizing is always very consistent, and these boots fit great in my usual size 9. Very comfortable- no breaking in period needed. Definitely worth the splurge!

These boots are beautiful and outstanding quality. I absolutely love them however the sizing is tricky. I wear a size 7 and never have trouble fitting most boots however the heel is narrow so I ordered a7 1/2 and it seemed 2 sizes larger. Ultimately I sent both pairs back and ordered another 7 which seemed to fit. I think the sizing is hit or miss with manufacture but I would definitely recommend these boots because they are awesome!

Absolutely gorgeous boots. Zappos is the best. I had this same boot for a year, (in the taller version) and I finally had to be honest with myself...they were toooo tight!! I finally got the courage to call the Zappos associate and ask if I could return my tall version Leopardito ol' Gringo boots. To my wonderous surprise, Zappos took my boots back and I got to order the shorter version, which was totally okay with me. Boy, what a happy camper I am. Merry Christmas to me from Zappos!!! Thank you Zappos!! You totally rock...forever!!!

Very attractive boot! I love these boots. They are really pretty, feminine, fun details. Nice, muted colors making it very versatile. Good height. It does run slightly small so I followed another reviewers comment and ordered 1/2 size up, perfect. It is on the narrow side but not too much so. I feel like I have a very average foot width wise and this fit nicely, but not much room like some other boots. So if your foot leans to the wider end, I wouldn’t go with these and if you are often wishing the boot was a bit more narrow, these might be a great choice! I knocked off one star for comfort based on the fact there could be more padding in the footbed. Not uncomfortable, just not what you would choose to put on if you were going to be walking all day.

The boots are beautiful. I LOVE that the heals don't make any noise when you walk in them. I am a size 8 1/2 but since my feet are very wide I usually buy a size 9. There is plenty of room for my feet in this boot but not so much that my feet are moving around. Because of the 2-inch high heel it really puts a lot of pressure on the balls of my feet when wearing them so I will be purchasing some pads to put in there. That being said, I do not consider this a flaw in the boot but rather a symptom of wearing a boot with a 2-inch high heel. The stud strap detail comes right off so if you wanted to wear them without the bling you will have that option. I would definitely recommend these boots.

These are amazing, I can't get over how good they look (purchased the chocolate/red combination) and they're comfortable right out of the box - something I wasn't expecting since I wear flip flops here in FL 99% of the time, and thus my feet are pansies. The one other review rated them as running a full size small, so I sized up from my usual 7.5 to an 8 to accommodate socks, but they were huge. The 7.5 replacement pair are plenty roomy for socks. The toe is very pointed, so that portion is long but your foot won't slip forward because the boots are cut so (very!) well.

I love these boots! Unfortunately my feet aren’t happy in them. I normally wear a size 9 or 9.5 in boots. Because of the pointed toe I ordered the 9.5. They were to big so I tried them with insoles that have a little arch support. They still felt loose so I returned them thinking the 9 should fit. The 9 was to tight. They are gorgeous boots and look even better in person. If you are considering these beautiful boots go for it with Zappos great customer service and free shipping and returns you can’t go wrong.

I bought these boots in brown. They fit me true to size, and I have a high instep which sometimes makes the fit of a boot difficult. The leather of these boots is very soft, making them easy to put on. They are a distressed leather, which means that the finish of the color is uneven. If you like your boot finishes very uniform then these may not be for you. I love Old Gringo short boots, they are comfortable and they look great. The heel height is just right for all day comfort.

I wore what I thought would be my favorite pair of boots today. The Old Gringo Bonnie Mayra. They seemed perfect. Until I walked from my car to my house in about ½ “ of snow. I walked into my house and before I noticed I had tracked black dye that was dripping from the boots all over my house. I’m pretty sure I ruined my wool carpet and two throw rugs. I can’t seem to get the black stain out. I am so disappointed that these boots are made with an ink that is not color fast. The boots were not soaking wet. Just had a little snow on them. I would appreciate an email with a solution to removing the dye. And I also ordered the Old Gringo Acoma Tall. Will these do the same thing? I love these too. But don’t want to keep them if they are going to bleed.

I’m a 7.5 or and 8. I ordered the 8 and it was perfect. The shaft is very soft and comfortable. Like all old gringos the shoe would need some breaking in. As much as I loved them I did return them. Just wouldn’t get enough wear for the price.

OK, I was almost scared away by the reviews I read about these boots being hard to get on. I have a deformed right foot and have been looking for years, for something I could get on a and be able to wear. I had even been looking for something with a zipper to make it easier to get on. So, I was afraid I wouldn't get my right foot into the boot. But, I am sooooo glad I decided to take a chance anyway. They went right on, fit great and feel very comfortable. I love them and they are now my go to for boots. Since they only had one pair in my size I feel like I really scored. I love the color too, nice natural looking leather.

This boot was soooooo beautiful, I'm just so disappointed that my high arch kept this from being comfortable. Also, the leather was so soft that when I pulled it on I needed a shoe horn to keep it from buckling at my heel. I have another pair of Old Gringo boots and they are my "go-to" boot for every occasion. My foot shape and the boot construction just didn't work with this OG boot.

I love Old Gringo Boots! This pair is exceptional in their craftsmanship with the stitching and leatherwork. So beautiful....I usually wear a size 10, but with cowboy boots you are supposed to order smaller, so I went down a half step and got the 9.5. Turns out they were still too big. I can probably wear a 9

Old Gringo are my all time fave boots, and these are totally awesome with the bit of turquoise trim! I love them! The fit is always perfect, right out of the box. I put them on and went about my business all day, forgetting I had a brand new pair of boots on...wore them into the evening. The best boots.
