Friends, this pop-up is off the hook.
I've decided to sell some boots from my shoemaker in Cuenca.
Since I've been here, I've purchased (3) pairs of boots from the husband and wife duo. They've had their shop for 50 years.
And the boots....!
They are soooo well made. We're talking the quality of Frye Boots for 50% less. They are the best handmade shoes I've seen in Ecuador (and trust me, I'm always looking.)
Also, how fun is it to know these will literally be made BY HAND in a little workshop just for you. I really, really ADORE these boots. They're comfortable and sturdy. They hold up extremely well. I think with some periodic polishes and infrequent sole repairs, these boots will last for years and years. I would not sell anything here unless I didn't think it was the best!
Here are the (3) styles for sale...
Price for The Riding Boot: $260
Price for The Lace-up Boots: $220
Price for the Bootie: $180
Size: 8 1/2 (regular width)
[I am so sorry to say that sizes are really tricky here in Ecuador (they're not as standard, like the U.S.)- and I personally think they require a try-on. I am a classic 8 1/2, so I'll be trying these on for you to ensure a proper fit before sending them to you. If you'd like to take a risk and order a different size, I am happy to do that and we can cross our fingers. But regardless, we won't be able to accept any returns.]
Shipping: $20. Approximately 4-6 weeks. (The earlier orders will be shipped first.)
