Meet the Maker
Stiefeld Boots is located in Leon Mexico. Leon is one of Mexico’s largest cities with a population of over 2 million people. Some may find it surprising that Leon is considered the ‘Shoe and Leatherwear Capital of the World’, with leather making being one of its core industries. Leon is known for manufacturing beautiful leather shoes, belts, purses, and other leather goods. The owner of Stiefeld, Luis, began his career in the shoe industry by buying and selling industrial shoes. A number of years ago, Luis began making shoes for his family, and due to interest, quickly began selling them to friends and then more broadly. It was at this point that he launched Stiefeld approximately 2 years ago. Luis and his wife enjoy brainstorming new creative ideas for footwear styles – which is how they came up with their wildly popular cowhide bootie style. From start to finish, a pair of cowhide booties can take from 4 days to 1 week to complete, demonstrating Stiefelds commitment to quality.
These size 5 square toe style cowhide ankle booties fit close to 1/2 size big (like a 5.5). Please refer to our sizing chart in our Stiefeld Q&A blog post under “Journal” for more information on sizing, care, etc!
