Stitched and Sewn with Guatemalan Soul


We believe that travel is the essence of life, as it connects you to new culture, people, and ideas. Victoria Davis and Betsy Lampo met on one of their travel adventures in Antigua, Guatemala in July 2013. After working as English teachers and living together for many months, the two decided to go into business together. Every day they had been blessed to be a part of a vibrant, warm culture, and they wanted a way to share that with the world. But the looming question was always, how?

After months of discussing what could be done, they opted to create a business that would continue to give back to the country - rather than simply taking. The bootmakers of this country create long-lasting works of art, yet their source of income is inconsistent. By creating Suela Soul Boot Co., job security and steady income have increased for the bootmakers.

The founders’ main goal is to provide the world with an opportunity to experience their love of all things chapín (Guatemalan), but more importantly - to own a piece of art that tells the story of their beloved Guatemala.

Suela Soul Boot Co. creates boots that showcase a blend of rustic elegance. Offering a unique selection of styles, material and colors, Suela Soul is able to ensure the quality of product. All boots are genuine leather and 100% hecho a mano (made by hand) - meaning the bootmakers use no machines whatsoever.

A note from the founders:
We believe that through our faith and hope, this dream has become a definite reality. The support of our family and friends has shown us that fighting for what you believe in is worth it. We are striving to keep that as the central point of this business.

These boots are now being sent directly from within the USA in Scottsdale, Arizona.

General Information
Q: Where did the name "Suela Soul" come from?
After much deliberation we felt it was imperative to use both English and Spanish in our company name. In Spanish, "suela" means "sole" - as in the sole of your shoes.
We then combined it with "soul" as a way to say that each pair of boots has both a visible part of the culture as well as something a bit deeper.

Q: Who makes the shoes?
We have hand selected artisans that specialize in the creation of handmade leather goods. These bootmakers are from a small town in Guatemala. We have developed personal relationships with each and every one of them in order to create a better work environment for all of us.

Q: How do I take care of my leather boots?
We suggest you purchase a leather cream or lotion to make your shoes shine and last longer. They're not recommended to be worn in the rain, as they are 100% leather.

Q: Can I custom order a pair of boots?
If you have a particular style or color of boots you would really like to have and do not see it here, please contact us directly and we can create something for you. However, we do not make any and all leather types of shoes - we solely make boots.

Q: How do I know my boot size?
Our shoes are measured in Guatemalan sizes, which do not come in half sizes. Please contact us for our foot measuring guide and size comparison chart.

Q: How long does it take to process my order?
Once your payment has been received and cleared, your order will be processed within 24-48 hours.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards and Paypal.

Q: Is there sales tax added onto my purchase?
No, however, you are responsible for your country's custom and import tax.

Q: Do you offer international shipping?
Currently no. We ship within the US only.

Q: How long until my order is shipped?
Your order will be shipped out in 3-5 business days after payment has been received and cleared.

Q: What is Suela Soul's return policy?
Please contact us and we'll be happy to resolve any issue, as we want you to be completely satisfied with your order. We do not offer refunds but we will gladly exchange your item if your product is different from what was ordered. Items must be unworn and unused to qualify for an exchange, please contact us first. Exchanges will be made as soon as we receive and process your returned item. We are not able to reimburse shipping costs.
