Wishlist: Texas Traditions custom boots

photo Misty Keasle 
Story goes the cowboy boot originated in Kansas in the 1880s when a Colorado based cowboy specified a custom shaped boot designed to fit the stirrup.  Read an article in last week's The Economist that claimed they will be in high demand post recession (if that ever happens). 
Master boot maker Lee Miller owns Texas Traditions.  He trained under the late great Charlie Dunn and makes boots for the likes of Willie Nelson.  The waiting list is three years long.  Prices  start at $2 000.
