Why these shoemakers have a love for cowboy boots is strange to us too, but they’ll beat many a boot made in Texas.
A shoemaker can be found in all nooks and crannies of the city, but we’ve picked out a few of the more popular ones for you. Although many of them make leather goods, their specialities are leather shoes ⎯ boots in particular. They have a particular obsession with cowboy boots, though (deep down, you know you do too).
Siam Bootery has many shoes and boots already made and ready for sale, but they will also custom make anything you’d like within a week. It is located on Sukhumvit Road opposite soi 19, and right next to the Asoke Skytrain station.
Liu’s Bootery has been around for over 20 years, and as the name suggests, like the others, they specialize in boots. They even make English riding boots to your specifications. Have no fear though, as with every leather shop in Bangkok, they’ll make anything. Liu’s is located on Sukhumvit Road next to the Sheraton Grand Hotel.
