A modern, minimalist take on the classic cowboy boot.
Minus traditional motifs - no toe bugs & winkles, no foxing, no collars - no frou frou.
Dress up or dress down. With attitude or confidence. You can have it your way.


Deep turquoise Spanish Calfskin makes a statement in this western-made-modern style.

- presented in burgundy Spanish Calfskin, Imperio Toe, Vaquero Riding Heel, Merlin Shaft Pattern stitched in white & burgundy.
- 13" shaft height
- 14" shaft width (width can be customized - fee may apply)
- 2 " hand-stacked leather heel - the delaCav Ladies Riding Heel
- Toe shape shown is the delaCav Austin Toe
- Leather insole, outsole, lining

Pricing starts at $798.00 for spanish calfskin.
Additional fees apply for luxury collection leathers and exotics.
Due to the fashion industries' obsession with exotics right now, I can't give a quote on additional costs because it fluctuates week to week, honestly. So, email me and we'll talk and settle on all the details.

The "last" used in the making of our Rioja Cowboy style is produced with a fashionable elongation, so you can expect that the boot will extend about 1.5" beyond the toe line
(A standard last can be used to make your boots with custom & handmade-to-order sales; A "last" fee may apply.
NOTE: A "last" is a mold designed for creating a particular footwear style

delaCav bootwear runs true to size so order based on your standard ready-to-wear size,
i.e. I wear 9.5 when I buy shoes/boots at Nine West, so I'd order 9.5 from delaCav

I found that fit is subjective. Two people can wear the same size, but one might like more wiggle room and the other prefers to feel snug in their boots.

If you have any questions just email me.

More than 140 steps go into making a handcrafted pair of delaCav boots
- premium leathers/exotics are individually selected and cut by hand
- we hand shape leather toe boxes and leather counters for heel coupling
- hand-stacked leather heels are pitched for balance and nailed into place
- our boots are hand-lasted to ensure proper fit
- the welt is extended to secure insole to outsole & for aesthetics
- a steel shank is placed in arch for solid support
- in fine artful tradition, we use lemonwood pegs to secure outsole to insole
- decorative stitching is turned by hand (when applicable)
Every detail is meticulously managed upholding traditional bootmaking traditions
