T.O Stanley Boots are arguably the best boots ever made.

To anyone lucky enough to know T.O Stanley,
For more than twenty years I have referred to T.O. as one of the consummate cowboy boot makers in the world. He was a legend in the business before, during, and after I researched and wrote, "The Cowboy Boot Book" in 1992, "100 Years of Western Wear" in 1993, and "Art of the Boot" in 1999. I also plan to do a special 'lifetime' feature on T.O.in my upcoming book with Time Warner, which will be released in 2005, entitled "More Cowboy Boots."
There is nobody in the cowboy boot world who has continued to supply beautifully constructed boots while keeping one eye on tradition and another on the future and what styles and trends are on the horizon.
A great man, a great bootmaker, a great Texan.
