León, a town founded by shoemakers and oft-referred to as the “Bootmaking Capital of the World,” has been home to some of the best craftsmen for hundreds of years. After a global search, we were convinced by this centuries-old tradition and entrusted your boots to the hands of León's great artisans.

A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER

Howdy,

I’m Paul Hedrick. A few years ago, I quit my job on Wall Street because I had a passion for boots. I felt like a brand was really missing from the category—one that didn’t overcharge for quality; a brand that truly cared about comfort, customer experience, and value.

After a year of research, development and cold calling every bootmaker and factory I could find in Texas and all over North America, I realized two important truths in the industry: the best brands were all made in the same places and same ways, and the traditional retail model was what was keeping prices out of reach.

On the other end of the spectrum, many brands were cutting corners by using cheaper or artificial materials, low-cost labor, and poor construction techniques (not to mention generally poor customer service and experience).

Then it hit me: What if I created this missing brand? High quality, comfortable boots—timeless in their style—and most importantly: sold for a fraction of the cost of the best brands out there.

I drained my savings account and set out to build Tecovas in 2014. Fast-forward to today, and we are setting a new standard in boots with timeless, classic styles, unbelievable comfort, honest prices, and thousands of happy customers to prove it.

If you’re not part of the Tecovas family yet, we hope you can join us soon!

THREE BOOT BUYING TRUTHS
THAT WILL MAKE YOU BUY DIFFERENTLY

Don’t make the same mistakes when buying your next pair.

  • MOST BOOTS ARE MADE USING CHEAP MATERIALS

    Most retail brands have spent the last couple decades cutting costs to reduce price—resulting in cheap, ugly, and uncomfortable materials. Low-cost outer leather, pig skin or artificial lining, artificial or recycled heels, and rubber soles.

    THE TECOVAS WAY

    We’ve made the decision to not cut corners on the materials we use to make our boots. Comfort is the top-priority, so our outer leathers are custom-tanned to be more comfortable than any other boots on the market. We only use bovine leather lining, stacked leather heels, and 100% leather outsoles (which make for great dancing boots!).

  • MOST BOOTS ARE POORLY CONSTRUCTED

    Making boots by hand ain’t cheap—so, many brands have moved away from classic, handcrafted bootmaking techniques, including hand-stitched Goodyear welt construction that allows boots to be re-soled instead of needing to be replaced. Most lower-end brands have instead moved to machine-made footwear and glued-on soles!

    THE TECOVAS WAY

    We’ve always appreciated the timeless tradition of handmade boot-making and the high-quality boots it produces, so we’ve committed ourselves to making every boot we sell by hand. It requires more time, skill and cost—but we’re proud of the results. All of our boots are 100% handcrafted, with Goodyear welt construction and hand-hammered lemonwood pegs. These boots will last a lifetime, just like the best boots have throughout the centuries.

  • MOST BOOTS ARE SIMPLY OVER-PRICED

    The vast majority of boot brands rely on traditional retailers like big box western stores (as well as boutiques) to sell their products. But when a boot brand sells to a “middleman” like a retailer, the store typically marks the wholesale price of the boot 2-3 times before reaching retail price! A boot that is made for $100 and then sold from brand to retailer for $200 is then sold to you for $400-$600!

    THE TECOVAS WAY

    We have committed to selling 100% of our boots directly to you, meaning we only take the typical brand markup (1x) instead of 2-3x…resulting in boots that are twice the quality of similar-priced boots—and half the price (or less) of boots of the same quality! Cutting out the middleman means we can sell great boots at great prices—honestly.

THE TECOVAS GUARANTEE

Our boots are

  • Half the Price of Similar-quality Boots

  • Twice the Quality of Similar-price Boots

  • Always Handmade from Top Quality Leathers

We could charge twice as much, but we choose not to

Our business model is simple: we manage our supply chain from start to finish. Then we only sell our boots directly to you online—never to retailers. We make great boots—you save on retail markup.

Experience top-quality without the sticker shock

We refrain from unnecessary markups because we don’t need them—and you don’t want to pay them. Our boots are only marked up once instead of 2-3x like everyone else’s.

Step into a pair and see for yourself

Fact: We’ve made over 40 design improvements over time based on feedback from customers to bring you the best product possible.

WE FOCUS ON SIMPLE, TIMELESS DESIGNS—NOT FADS OR TRENDS

Many brands across the retail industry find themselves chasing the latest trend—and most boot brands are no different. That’s why you’ll see boots with “square toes” one year, loud colors and crazy designs in another year, and something different the next year. Hoping to turn a quick profit, brands perpetuate this cycle and customers are left with boots that don’t stand the test of time.

THE TECOVAS WAY

We designed our boots to look the way we thought they should—classic and timeless. We wanted boots that looked equally at home at dive bars and suit-clad offices, so we make classic-looking boots out of the best material. Simply put, our goal is to make boots that were stylish 50 years ago and will be stylish 50 years from now.

WE FOCUS ON SIMPLE, TIMELESS DESIGNS—NOT FADS OR TRENDS

Many brands believe in “chasing trends” and turning a quick profit when a design feature (e.g., crazy toe shapes, loud colors) is popular—meaning customers are left with boots that don't stand the test of time.

THE TECOVAS WAY

We designed our boots to look the way we thought they should—classic and timeless. Our goal is to make boots that would have been stylish 50 years ago—and will be stylish 50 years from now.

Many believe that finding the right boot size can be tricky, and we understand the concern, which is why we have built a process for the perfect fit for most. There is no reason for your fit to be complicated.

We custom build our boot lasts (the foot molds used to define the boot shape) to be true to U.S. sizes. Chances are, you already know your size: it’s whatever size you wear the most already! Stlll stumped? We recommend getting measured with a Brannock device, which can be found at your closest shoe store.
