Check out Lady Gaga’s ultra-custom cowboy boots from Tony Lama
For the average footwear lover, having a pair of bespoke shoes is a lifelong fantasy. For Lady Gaga, it’s a day-to-day reality, most recently, Gaga has made waves in two pairs of custom-made cowboy boots by legendary American bootmaker Tony Lama, both themed around her new album Born This Way. We’ve got detailed shots of both pairs from the manufacturer, who says that creating these incredibly intricate boots took a crew of 20 people 500 man hours to complete.
These shoes may not be your style, but bootmaking is deeply American and a wonderful artistic tradition and I, for one, am glad to see someone as influential as Lady Gaga giving it some love. The level of hand-hewn detail work on these boots plus Gaga’s matte black pair warrants a closer look, which we have after the jump.
