How Our Boots are Made

Welcome to JK Western, where tradition meets modernity in the art of bootmaking. 

We invite you on a journey behind the scenes of our two iconic models: The Ace and The Buck. Crafted with passion and precision, each pair tells a story of heritage, craftsmanship, and the indomitable spirit of the west.


The Craftsmanship of The Ace and The Buck

At the heart of JK Western's collection lie The Ace and The Buck - each with its unique charm. 

The Ace, boasting its luxurious smooth leather, exudes a classic elegance blended with rugged durability. 

In contrast, The Buck, with rough waxed suede, offers a contemporary take on the traditional cowboy boot, suitable for both the range and urban landscapes. 

The essence of these models lies in their material - rugged steerhide leather, known for its resilience and longevity.


The Goodyear Welt Construction

Our boots are not just footwear; they are a testament to enduring quality, thanks to the Goodyear welt construction. 

This age-old technique ensures that each pair is not only durable but also repairable, extending their life beyond that of typical boots. 

Crafted in Leon, Mexico - the western bootmaking capital of the world - every stitch speaks of the legacy and skill inherent in this region's craftsmanship.


Materials and Details

In our pursuit of perfection, we pay meticulous attention to every detail. The boots feature leather insoles, reinforced with brass tacks and lemonwood pegs, ensuring unmatched comfort and support. 

Our commitment to tradition is evident in our stitching and piping methods, carefully preserved over generations. 

Yet, we embrace innovation through the modernized toe-bug design, a nod to the evolving spirit of the west. This blend of old and new encapsulates the essence of JK Western - honoring tradition while embracing progress.


The Art of Bootmaking

To fully appreciate the artistry of our boots, one must understand the process behind their creation. 

Each pair of JK Western boots undergoes a series of intricate steps, demanding skill and patience. 

From cutting and shaping the leather to the final polish, every stage is a testament to the art of bootmaking.
