Carlos Diaz (info-at-theleatherboutique-dot-com) has done two pair for me and is working on a third, 100% custom job. Some people have had mixed reviews for him but I've always gotten good service. His facility is in Guatemala and he holds orders sometimes to ship a bulk load all at once, so his lead time can be substantial.

If you have a clear design with blueprints, and can allow plenty of time for shipping, his work is very good.

This is an example of the kind of designs I send him:

Also for the ladies - he's also got the Leia ANH senatorial boots:






But to be more accurate, you should order them without the zipper.

Um... I'm looking at the site but it looks like he's not selling anything...

How do I contact him about an order?

I bought a set of Mace Windu and WWII German Replica boots from him. His quality is outstanding especially considering the price. However he has had some shipping problems lately.

Carlos does good work.
I just bought a pair of brown boots from him. It took some time and communications were slow but steady. I'd buy from him again, though and I've sent friends to him for their boots.

Looks like he had to raise his prices again, too. Won't be long and he'll be as expensive as Motorcowboy....
