Have you ever had custom footwear made just for you? There’s nothing quite like it. Custom exotic boots in Baton Rouge, LA can make you feel like you’re walking on air—and not just because of how comfortable they are (though we will get to that in a bit). A pair of custom ostrich boots can give a tremendous boost to your confidence, making you feel like you can accomplish anything you set your mind to (and look great while doing it).
There are many variations on it, but the heart of the old saying remains true: look good, feel good. And when you start out with both looking and feeling good in a pair of custom ostrich boots in Baton Rouge, LA, things can only get better from there.
What makes ostrich leather special?
Cowhide is the most popular option for leather, making up about two thirds of all leather production around the world. It’s a popular leather for boots because it’s durable, flexible and readily available, which also means it’s affordable.
Ostrich leather, on the other hand, makes up less than 1 percent of leather production, and is found in many luxury products, from Gucci handbags to Bugatti car seats. It is very soft and incredibly durable and has a distinctive look. Ostrich leather also breathes well, and its natural oils help resist cracking and drying.
There are two types of ostrich leather. Full quill ostrich leather comes from the hide of the bird and has a bumpy look from the plucked feathers. Ostrich leg leather comes (not surprisingly) from the leg, and has a different pattern than full quill. It kind of looks like scales (which is perhaps more of a surprise) and as a result is sometimes mistaken for reptile skin.
Getting custom boots made for your feet
If you’ve had custom boots or shoes made for you, then you already know what a massive difference it makes to wear something created to fit your individual feet versus something made to fit millions of different people’s feet. The level of comfort is night and day. The only problem is, once you’ve had custom footwear made for you, you’ll probably never want to wear anything else ever again!
The process of getting custom exotic leather boots made starts with measuring your feet, then choosing the type of leather. Your leather craftsman will help in selecting the toe, heel and sole. Then you get to pick the fun details like color (or colors!), shape, stitching type, patterns, initials and other design options.
