Pirarucu Fish Boots – What In The World Are Pirarucu Boots?

As soon as my eyes gazed upon these pair of boots, I’m not gonna lie, I was intrigued as hell! Such a unique look to them that I had to know more. I read the title “Handmade Pirarucu Fish Boots” and it sounded very familiar. About 2 hours later I realized how I knew the name. I was watching a show on Animal Planet by the name of “River Monsters” with Jeremy Wade and he was going after Pirarucus. They are massive fish that will eat just about anything. Mystery solved? Yes and no, I mean I still needed to know more about these handmade boots. They are absolutely amazing.

Pirarucu Fish Boots - PIRARUCU Used To Make Pirarucu Handmade Cowboy Boots

The Boot and the Fish

The legendary Pirarucu is the largest fish in the Amazon river, one of the most incredible and exotic places on the planet. One look at this incredible boot and you’ll be taken away to an exciting place. The Marfa cord and stitch pattern looks almost like a blazing fire, with cascading, exotic lines zigzagging up the front and back of the boot. Pull straps show off more of these boots’ beautiful, bright Pirarucu skin with overlays, complimenting the rich color of handmade goat leather cowboy boots. I can almost guarantee you, if you walk into a place with others wearing any type of cowboy boots, it’s gonna be tough to find someone wearing a pair of Pirarucu Boots. Not because they are lower quality or don’t look as good as other boots, but they just aren’t a well-known species. I never heard of them until I watched Animal Planet and trust me, not everyone watches that channel and even less that show. It’s definitely cool if you could be the first of your friends or colleagues to own a pair so check out these 3 beautiful Handmade Pirarucu boots sale!

  1. I’m sorry as I am a bit confused whether these boots are made from animal leather or from leather made of fish skin?

    But whatever it is made of, it is pretty obvious the quality is premium and you will never regret buying a pair of these boots. Being in a rock band here in the Philippines makes these pair of boots very attractive and I’m sure my band mates will surely love these boots. I will share this article to them.

    By the way, thanks for sharing this and you got me searching the web for Pirarucu Fish.

      Well a fish is an animal, so to answer your question, both lol.  But part of the boot is definitely made from the Pirarucu fish and it’s very cool!

      1. Well, glad you learned anout Pirarucu. Hope you also learned thst theybare HIGHLY endangeted because yet again the Chinese have created a market for them, and the Vanity trade driven by poachers cares only about money, only for themselves, and only for what makes them happy. These magnificent creatures, like the elephant, like white rhinos, like snow leopards, and many other extinct and endangered species, are being monotized with no thoughts for the way their disappearance impacts every other organism in their biological sphere.

        Let’s say you try this for a year: buy an EV, wear shoes made of recycled reclaimed plastic, stop eating meat, stop buying foods and beverages packed in plastics, stop wasting the food you buy, go 100% LED lighting, etc. See how that feels. Maybe, just maybe, you will feel better about yourself and won’t need to buy ridiculous and expensive but very destructive things to
        Play with, eat, or wear, instead of becoming a person of worth.

  2. What great looking pair of unique boots. I like the fact that you will have a great story to tell about them to friends and any of those people that may be curious. They are really a good looking pair of boots and I would like to add a pair to my collection. I live in Texas so I can’t have enough of unique boots. A pair of Pirarucu Fish boots would great addition to any boot collection.
