I went to the Midland concert.

I did sit in a box with some hot chicks and drank Blanton's so I'm not totally gay. 

You might not be gay but based on those outfits they were wearing, I'm not so sure about the members of the band.

$88? Damn.

Cheap compared to what women pay for white tee shirts.

I saw the all boots for $99 email today and now I'm struggling. I don't really need a new pair of boots, but that's a heck of a deal.

Cueros on sale for $99 with free shipping

I assume Cueros fit exactly like Tecovas? $99 is exactly what I want to pay for suede boots.

From the videos I have watched they are comparable with the exception of the toe box maybe being a tad smaller.  I have yet to try them on.  Delivery has been delayed due to how busy UPS and Fedex have been in the last week or so.

They’re sold out now. I’ll be sitting on the emails for another deal.

For Tecovas, I wear 11D. They are hard to get on, but fit great once they're on.

My first pair of Cuero was 11D, go on easy, fit very tight in the instep.

Last pair of Cuero was 10.5EE, go on easy, fit great in the instep.

Interesting. I’ve never worn an E in my entire life. If by some miracle Cuero restocks the tan suede boots at $99, I’ll get a pair. Tecovas has a suede belt that should match.

I pulled the trigger on the new Tecovas Smooth Ostrich boots. I purchased the Jasper in Scotch. 

FYI, I called Tecovas and they won't be releasing a matching belt. Plan accordingly.

I got some Tecovas gift cards for my birthday back in early March, but still haven't used them yet b/c I've been wanting to go to the physical location down in Rice Village and try stuff on. I don't like buying expensive clothing/footwear sight unseen, especially with a brand I haven't owned before. Never sure how they will fit and what the color will actually look like compared to the pictures online. 

Have had my eyes set on the Bourbon-colored lizard boots and matching belt. Hopefully I will finally get a chance to join the club in May.

I think Tecovas runs about a half size small, but everybody is different. I agree I would definitely try on a pair first. Their sizing is very consistent.Once you know your size you can fire away online. 

I would go up a size on their belts.

Order a couple sizes at once, use a credit card, and return the ones that don’t fit. Their customer service is great.

I saw this in the thread and figured why the hell not take a shot. They came in today. There weren't many styles/sizes left so I ended up with the Eastwood espresso instead of the cherry as that's all they had in a 12. I was kind of hoping when I called in to ask about exchanging them they would tell me to go ahead but instead they said if they don't have them they will just issue a refund. 

Also pro-tip I learned. If you leave your items in the cart after entering your email address after 3 days they will send you a 20% off code to use for the items in your cart. So I ended  up with these for $79.95 Hell of a deal, regardless of the color.

They told me they’ll bring it back at the end of 2020. I hope we’re not the same shoe size.

I’m sure you’re on Cuero’s email list, but if not I’d get on there. They send notifications out before their sales.

Cuero now has a note on their website stating they have sold out their 2019 Collection. They are currently restocking with the 2020 Collection which will be available soon. 

I doubt the 2020 Collection will be $99 a pair, but here’s to hoping.

The Cuero ropers arrived today. Very similar packaging to Tecovas. Nice box, each boot in its own plastic bag, sharp looking embroidered black boot bag as well. Could smell the leather before I opened the box, which is always nice. The leather looked and felt great. The shaft was very supple (hey oh!) and felt nice to the touch. They went right on with no effort which tells me they are a little big. I have a wide foot so I went with the EE like I do for all my other boots. This suckers slipped right on with no effort. I will have to wear a thicker sock to avoid slippage as I do not want to take my chances with a D. For $99 these are an absolute killer value.

I own 6 or 7 other pair of boots from various companies and from first impressions, these won't be my last Cuero Boots especially if they are at this price point. I'll try and post pictures later.

Has anybody here dealt with these guys before?

Some of the styles are pure H-town cheese, but I don't hold that against the maker.

Craftsmanship looks solid.

These cracked me up.

Has anyone found a belt that goes well with the "gunsmoke" smooth ostrich Tecovas? I've been looking for a belt that even approaches the color and haven't gotten lucky yet. How about any of y'all? If so, where did you find them?

 I may have missed it but I didn't see a "gunsmoke" color. If the "Jasper" is similar to what you are looking for these might help. If not then maybe you can still find it on the same companies website. Good Luck

Tecovas brick and mortar stores officially re-opened today. Gonna try and pop in one day this week and finally spend the gift cards I've been sitting on for almost 3 months.

I said fuck it and bought another pair of Cuero's. The light grey suede "the Lucas". The others that I had were just so damn comfortable and I felt it was fate that they still had anything left in my size. I don't see myself wearing the suede too much but the wife likes them so they can be my fancy shoes, as long as they are comfortable. 


Again used the same trick. Left them in my cart for about 4 days and they sent me a 20% off coupon. $80 out the door.

well fuck me. got an email today from cuero that my boot order will not be fulfilled. They said for the inconvenience they will let me take my $80 purchase and give me a $100 credit plus a 20% off coupon to use online on the 2020 boots. Looks like you can't even get to the checkout anymore. 

I may as well take that and hope that they do this same clearance promotion next year and I will get 2 for the price of 1 on the boots. Otherwise if they come out with any exotics this year I may snag a pair of ostrich. 

Will be interesting to see how well they hold up but damn if these aren't the most comfortable boots.

Is it just me or does Tecovas just want to be the boot of hipster “Texans”? The company seems contrived to appeal to Austin types in a HopDoddy way. I tried some one twice and they were fine, but I didn’t like them any better than any of my 1883’s or Anderson Beans. I wanted to “support local”, but at those prices, whew (boots, belts, and shirts). Will try Cueros if they ever restock.

Check out Tecova's Facebook Group, they've already captured the hipster market share. Grown men are are arranging their boots and posting pics on social media for likes.
