PlanetShoes.com is excited to introduce Old Gringo boots!
Handcrafted in Mexico, these unique cowboy boots are perfect for men and women who appreciate distinctive footwear. Started in 2000 by Ernie Tarut and Yan Ferry, Old Gringo boots are known for their fine quality and high fashion. Old Gringo’s philosophy is to “push the traditional western envelope with artisan handcrafted boots and outer wear that captures vintage charm and contemporary styles.” We love Old Gringo because they have a variety of boots for everyone that, “demands unique footwear and luxury leather goods that represent Vintage, Contemporary, Rock Star and European style.”
Our very own designer and demand-er of “rock star style,” Jess, took a few minutes to answer some questions about her favorite new brand.
1. What 3 words would you use to describe Old Gringo?
2. If Old Gringo was awarded a Senior Class superlative what would it be?
Most unconventional – least likely to go the straight and narrow – not following any one path, but picking and choosing the best elements of many. (That’s what I get out of the whole classic-western-style-meets-hand-crafted-artistry thing ;))
3. If you were stranded on a desert island, which Old Gringo shoe would you want to have with you?
I would have the Sora Short boot on my feet. The floral embroidery is so charming that it would lift my spirits every time I look at them, and the short height of the boot will keep me from getting too warm under that tropical sun!
