"Let firm, well hammer'd soles protect thy feet through freezing snows, and rains, and soaking sleet; Should the big last extend the shoe too wide, Each stone will wrench the unwary step aside; The sudden turn may stretch the swelling vein, The cracking going unhinge, or ankle sprain; And when too short the modish shoes are worn, You'll be the seasons by your shooting corn."
- John Gay (Born: 6 June 1687, Died: 12 April 1732)

Our Philosophy 

Our philosophy is built into every piece we make; one should never have to sacrifice beauty for comfort or durability.  In addition, Underwood Boot Company provides repair services for those treasured items and finds no better joy than to rebuild family history, lost treasures, and specialty crafted pieces of designers who no longer pursue their craft.  As with any specialty item requiring repair, please see us in our Historic downtown Main Street Grapevine location for a quote to start your project!

Our Story

Underwood Boot Company was launched out of necessity - the necessity for handmade custom boots to be both affordable and made on-site within a reasonable time-frame.  We're native Texans here, and, well, Texas is like a whole other country.  Tourists as well as natives know that a good pair of boots is a mandatory item in your wardrobe.  We want to be the pair you buy and wear for a lifetime.  Underwood Boot Company uses techniques and patterns passed down from generations of boot makers to ensure your pair will last a lifetime.

Underwood Boot Company partners with our customers to turn their wildest dreams into coveted treasures.  Everything we make is designed for the discriminating customer.  In fact, our products are designed by our customers to suit their individual needs, personal taste, and unique lifestyles.  Our master craftsmen take pride in creating the custom-designed, hand-made works of leather and make it possible for us to achieve the highest standards.
