It’s A Cold Night... Boot Tips
Well, no surprise here, we found my favorite of the boot tips. I love everything alligator. I love everything Roky Erickson. These boot tips, which are made to generally for a standard size pointed/narrow rounded cowboy boot, are completely hand fabricated. The base of the boot tip has been made out of nickel silver, to keep price point a bit lower, as well as to keep toughness factor high. But in the front, embellishments of fine silver diamonds of the spikes of a Louisiana found American alligator's back. Stamped patterns frame the diamonds and edges, as well as the lines “It’s a cold night” “for alligators” “well it’s a cold” “night for dogs”, for you to strut your puppies in style. Each tip has four platforms to hold a boot nail in place. They are made sturdy, but with enough flexibility they can mold to your boot to be nailed down. I strongly recommend taking them to your trusted local cobbler to have them put into place in a way that works best with your boots soles so they (and your boots) can live a long secure life.
The side walls measure 2" long, the front toe arch is 3/4" tall, and the distance from the front of the tip to the back rounded edge is 1 5/8". It measures 3 1/4” around at its widest point.
Each tip weighs .64 oz.
As each of these pieces are new designs, they are all still in a way prototypes. After years of moving metal I trust in their strength and longeviety. But I also know with handmade sometimes small surprises come up, I stand behind my work completely, so if ever there is any issue with one of these pieces due to my handiwork I will absolutely repair it for you asap. If the issue of said piece seems to come from user ware, I will also happily repair the piece for you, for a reasonable labor/material fee. I want you to wear these pieces for life. Support handmade, and these hands will support you <3
That being said, please see the care instructions card that will come with your piece for how to properly give your SSH goods the longest life possible!
