Tony Lama Boots

Tony Lama served in the U.S. Cavalry as a cobbler to soldiers stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas. Once he completed his tour of service, he decided to stay in the nearby border town of El Paso and continue work as a cobbler, but also begin making cowboy boots. Initially, repairs were the biggest segment of his business but word quickly spread throughout the Southwest about Tony Lama's Western boots.

In 1961, nearly 50 years after the first store opened, the company moved into larger quarters and began making 750 pairs of boots a day. Tony Lama passed away in 1974. His sons and daughters continued his business. In 1990, Tony Lama was purchased by Justin Brands.
