Texas Custom Boots

If you’re a pragmatist and want a pair of boots but live in New York and know that you’ll only wear them three times in your entire life, we recommend walking over to 1st Street to a place called Texas Custom Boots. Noel has made boots for guys like Willie Nelson and the Bush family.

Great selection of second hand boots here. Very cool store to walk into. (Map)
