I updated our exotic cowboy boots post the other day and there was one type of exotic skin that I didn’t put on there. It wasn’t because it wasn’t a sought after type of boot or anything, it was more so because there are only a few pairs of boots offered at Pinto Ranch that falls under this category and that is a pair of Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake boots. I wanted to save it for its own post because come on, they are pretty awesome and deserve an article with me giving them my full attention.
Popularity Of Snakeskin Boots On The Rise
Just the thought of snakeskin being made into a pair of boots is pretty mind boggling. You definitely know a pair of snakeskin boots when you see it. Very scaly like crocodile or alligator boots, just much smaller scales. Snakeskin boots also usually have a unique pattern and in this case we are talking about an Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake. That pattern is definitely unmistakable.
Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake Boots Durability
Snake is considered an exotic leather and I think that maybe because many snakeskin boots are made from python which unless you live in Florida is an exotic snake lol. But as I mentioned, this is the Eastern Diamondback and you can find them right here in the good ole USA mainly in the southeastern U.S., Mississippi, and Louisiana.
