Our Journey began in 2000

When Ernie Tarut and Yan Ferry decided to join forces pairing
Ernie's leather manufacturing experience and Yan's mastery of European design and boot making.

With this duo's skillset, Old Gringo has grown over the years to become a brand known for it's distinctive handmade leather boots that combine elements from more fashion forward designs while also staying true to the roots of western style.

" It is and always will be about making the right pair of boots. You know those boots you always turn to and never want to take off "

Ernie Tarut, President & The Old Gringo

We believe in
Art, Quality and Innovation

Who we are

Every step of our 225 steps process is meticulously mastered. We select high quality leathers to best match the wear & style of each design showcasing the skin's texture, color and finishes.
