When it comes to making boots, Daniel Borntrager does almost everything the old-fashioned way. His shop is nestled in the woods of NW Montana in a small community known as the West Kootenai. There Daniel spends a lot of his time surrounded by leather and sewing machines.
Ever since he was a young boy visiting his grandfather's harness shop, Daniel has been intrigued by the techniques and skills needed to work with leather. That interest, combined with his passion to enjoy excellent fitting boots, was how Borntrager's Boots was born.
Daniel measures each foot to ensure that each boot will be perfectly comfortable. Instead of using nails that have potential to rust and eat away the leather, Daniel uses wooden pegs and tempered steel shanks for a durable and classic product.
The options for personalizing your boots are nearly endless. You can have your boots made out of exotic leathers, from alligator to elephant. From toe and heel shapes to fancy stitching, unique overlays and inlays, the finished product will be a branding of your personality and style.
Is it really worth it, you ask, to order a custom handmade pair of boots instead picking up a pair up at your local Western store? Let the quality construction and enjoyable fit speak for themselves.
Have a favorite pair of boots that are wearing out? Daniel also does repairs and can bring your faithful footwear back to life.
