Quality Will Speak For Itself

A good handmade boot will have some or all of the following features.

Finally, a good handmade boot will usually be made on a last that shows respect for the structure of the foot; particularly the heel, the arch and the ball of the foot. The arch distributes the weight of the body evenly between the massive heel bone and the bones at the ball of the foot. Manufacturers are notorious for raising or lowering a last to fit a particular heel they want to build. Some bootmakers do the same. Lasts that throw the weight too far forward can cause foot problems that can last a lifetime.
