I was born and raised in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, the capital and state. When I was 15 years old, I started working because my family needed money for food. My uncle taught my brothers and I how to make boots inexpensively from various pelts which we would then take to the market to sell to customers who had stores. Across all of Mexico, the traditional cowboy boot originated and is made in my land. It is unique in quality and style but has since been copied in other states across the country.
I came to Colorado in 1999 and started working in construction, but at home I was repairing shoes. I started shining shoes, replacing soles, and then slowly buying my own machines until I was able to open my shop on Raritan Street in 2008. While I sell work boots that are imported from Mexico, I am primarily a manufacturer of cowboy boots with various styles, types, and colors for both women and men.
I would like to share that I am proud of my job and that since I was a kid my passion was to make boots. I’ve always lived with this passion and am pleased with all that I have.
