Along the border town of Nogales, Arizona sits Paul Bond Boot Co., a small shop that crafts some of the finest cowboy boots in the world.
Founded by cowboy turned bootmaker Paul Bond, the company has developed a reputation the world over for their quality, custom designs. Bond grew up ranching and trick riding in the rodeos, so he knew how to make boots practical and comfortable.
He also had a passion for making them look cool and express each customer’s personal tastes. The company regularly takes custom orders for boots online and over the phone, and even creates custom molds of each customer’s foot that can be used for years to come.
Over the years, Bond has designed custom boots for movie stars, rock stars and country legends, including Gene Autry, Johnny Cash and John Wayne, just to name a few.
Like many old cowboys, Bond believed you should tuck your pants into your boots. That was especially true for the boots he made. They have intricate stitching and a custom design that beg to be seen. Here are 15 of the finest boots from the company’s historical catalog.
