I, Carson Leverett, was first introduced to boot-making and leather working while in Graduate School in Abilene, Texas. The present owner of James Leddy boots took me on as an apprentice and I quickly graduated to full time bottomer. I quickly fell in love with the trade and became resolved to eventually open up my own shop.
With my experience at James Leddy's under my belt, I was polished out by Amarillo native and master boot-maker Ed Martin of Las Animas, Colorado. He taught me the ins and outs of the trade as well as many of the trade secrets he learned while working under first generation boot-makers of Amarillo. Click the picture to learn more about Ed.
My boots are made with love and passion and according to Ed's philosophy of striving after perfection.
