Soto Boots was founded in 2001 to provide our customers with quality, Handcrafted cowboy boots at Affordable prices. Having sold name branded western boots at our retail stores since 1991, we understand how much people love their cowboy boots, but we also knew there had to be a way to provide more value to our customers. Thus, Soto Boots was born. A vertically integrated brand that would skip the middleman and provide premium quality cowboy boots directly to the consumer. We began selling our boots in 2001 out of our retail store in Chicago, IL. Soon after we began our catalog/mail order business and eventually opening sotoboots.com


Soto Boots are handmade by some of the best artisan boot makers around, using only premium leathers and materials. You can notice our attention to detail in every step of the boot making process.


We started the Soto Boots so we can pass the saving to our customers. By designing the boots ourselves, it allowed us to sell directly to our customers. Eliminating the retail markups allows us to sell high-quality cowboy boots at affordable prices. Many of our boots are priced under $150. With traditional retail pricing, our boots would sell for well between $250-$500.
