Hand Tooled, Hand Painted Cowboy Boots

Carrie Cameron and I connected when she was just starting out with Cock of the Walk Designs, featuring one of a kind hand tooled, hand painted leather cowboy boots, shoes, and accessories. Carrie Cameron is a fine artist who specializes in 3D oil sculpture, known as the Relfectionist Movement. Carrie's use of bold colors and rich textures reflect her unique view of the complex beauty in her world.
After owning two art galleries in Texas, Carrie moved to San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Carrie was very inspired by her move to Mexico. She began to explore Leon, hopng to find an artisan who could help her translate her paintings onto boots, which would need to be hand tooled and hand painted. She found the right artisan to work with her, and Cock of the Walk Designs was born. Her inital boot designs were very well received, and Carrie has expanded her line to include shoes, handbags, corsets and other fine leather accessories. Her newest venture is an art gallery and showroom in San Miguel, "Galeria Buena Vida". Carrie is excited to bring her art to the community, along with the "Cock of the Walk Designs" leather line.
Carrie Cameron is continually expanding her line of boots with stunning new designs (with ten new designs currently in progress!). The "Bird of Paradise" boots (left, $1,495) feature a gorgeous peacock on one side and beautiful Bird of Paradise flowers on the other. These boots are a true work of art! The "Flores de Mexico" boots (center, $1,295) are bright and colorful - perfect for the Summer! These beautiful boots are available in both the short and tall styles. How will you ever decide? The "Sirena Sirens" boots in Turquoise (right, $1,895) are a wonderful mix of turquoise stained goatskin overlaid with premium tooled cowhide. I love this color combination!
Every pair of Cock of the Walk boots is constructed, tooled, and painted by hand, and no two pairs are exactly alike. They are not only beautiful, but extremely comfortable to wear. You can find Cock of the Walk Designs boots at Chateau Rustic in Frisco, TX, Guitar Sanctuary in McKinney, TX, Space Cowboy Boots in New York, and online retailers Cowgirl Kim and Sweet Georgia Gray. You can also see and purchase these boots as well as many others on the Cock of the Walk Designs website.
