Boot Store FAQs
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Do you have other sizes?
We always list all the sizes we have available in each style when we put them on our website. Our inventory is automatically updated with every purchase. If you do not see your size listed in a particular style, please give one of our stores a call and we can see if it can be special ordered for you. Special orders typically take 90 days to receive. You may olso choose the option of Notify Me When ... and we'll contact you when a new shipment arrives.
2. Do these boots run true to size?
Old Gringo boots tend to run one-half size large. The exceptions to this are the hand-tooled and exotic skin boots, which run true to size. We generally advise people if they are in-between sizes to go with the smaller size in Old Gringo. We do have a 100% fit guarantee. If the boots do not fit, simply return them and we will refund your purchase.
Lucchese boots, Frye boots, and Liberty Black boots tend to run true to size.
Liberty Boot Co. boots also tend to run true to size much like the fit of Lucchese boots.
3. Are these new boots?
The boots we offer on Boot Star Online are the same boots we offer in our brick and mortar retail stores. They are new, authentic manufacturer boots in perfect condition that may have been previously displayed at our store on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Due to our store layout, virtually all of our boots are displayed. See our "Boot Stores" tab on the website for a look inside our store.
4. Who makes Boot Star brand boots?
We specialize in authentic western boots from leading manufacturers in the industry, but add a contemporary, urban influence creating styles that are fresh and innovative. We travel to where these boots are handcrafted to recreate vintage inspired styles.
Since 1975, we have had a long-standing relationship with these manufacturers that has earned us the right to carry exclusive designs that are made just for Boot Star. In particular, our Boot Star branded styles are designed by us and made side-by-side in the same factory as Old Gringo boots. You’ll see these products are specially labeled “Boot Star by Old Gringo” inside the boot in the foot as well as embossed into the sole. Many of the Boot Star by Old Gringo styles also carry the Old Gringo logo embossed into the heel as a further means of authentication.
We also carry Lucchese, and Liberty Black styles that have been designed by us. In fact, many of our styles you will not find anywhere else. In this way, we bring you custom boots without the wait. Of course, if you would like to design your own boots, we can do that too!
