How important is footwear in a women’s life? Yeah, I know, I didn’t really need to ask that question. When it comes to ladies’ cowboy boots or even men’s cowboy boots for that matter, there are two little words that always make people perk up and take interest. Yeah, you guessed it, it’s “exotic skin”. You know, alligator, ostrich, eel, etc… Any person guy or girl that is a fan of cowboy boots usually has a special place in their heart for a pair of exotic skin boots if they are lucky enough to own a pair. I had a girlfriend that moved down to Florida from up north and one of the very first things she bought was a pair of caiman skin girl’s cowgirl boots. She really wasn’t upset when I told her that a caiman wasn’t an alligator and vice versa. She looked at a picture and said “same thing”. There you have it. She wasn’t unhappy, so I wasn’t unhappy.

Ostrich Skin Ladies Cowboy Boots – Love The Bump

Ostrich skin used in making of ladies’ cowboy boots is taken from ostriches farmed in Africa for their feathers, skin, and of course meat. You can always tell a pair of ostrich skin boots because of its distinctive pattern of bumps where the feathers once were. It can range in the amount of bumps depending on each bird. Ostrich skin is very specialized and a very expensive process making these boots very costly at times. You can learn more about ostrich skin leather here from Wikipedia.

Crocodile, Alligator And Caiman Boots – Same Thing Right?

They look almost identical right? I mean, yeah, pretty close. But there is something you need to know when it comes to the leather of these prehistoric dinosaurs.

When it comes to quality, the order is alligator, crocodile, and last but not least, caiman. Actually in this case, it is last in quality. You have to be careful because some dealers or boot makers will try to substitute caiman for alligator or crocodile taking advantage of the buyers lack of knowledge when it comes to the three of them.

STALLION WOMEN’S ZORRO BLACK GATOR ANKLE BOOTS

STALLION WOMEN'S ZORRO BLACK ALLIGATOR HANDMADE ANKLE BOOTS

  • 8″ Italian Leather in Black
  • Alligator Collar, Wingtip and Heel Foxing
  • Black Buck Lace

This version of Stallion’s Zorro boot in Italian leather features a black alligator collar, wingtip and heel foxing—all highlighted by matching leather buck lacing. These boots have a snip toe and a 1 3/4″ cowgirl heel. A zipper inside the ankle makes this sleek Zorro easy to put on and take off.

 

Sometimes it happens that, either for distraction or misinformation, or just due to a wrongly marked label inside the finished product hoping to deceive the inexperienced buyer real alligator is substituted either by crocodile, or even worse, by caiman, which is the lowest quality of all the various reptile leathers, but has been gaining importance and popularity in the exotic skin market. The biggest difference is both crocodile and alligator skins are softer and more flexible on the animal’s belly compared to caiman leather. It’s not impossible to believe that sometimes the artisan himself creates confusion, by inserting incorrect labels into the items, not intending to deceive the customer, but because he doesn’t understand the importance of the question.

    I did not know there was so many different types of cowboy boots you learn something new everyday. I appreciated at the end of the post you spoke about cheaper alternative boots for people in a different class bracket who might not be able to afford the dearer ones. I also liked that you used bullet points as well in the post. I also liked the pictures of the boots in the post as I feel it added to the overall post. I really like the layout and how easy the site was to navigate as well.
