Cobra RockPosted on Jun 7, 2014 | 0 comments
Yesterday was a pretty special day, as I got to see my friend Logan and her boyfriend Colt while they were in town hosting a pop-up for their boot line, Cobra Rock. Logan and I studied photography together at Concordia University, and have kept in touch ever since those Montréal days where we’d rack up hours upon hours shooting and developing photos in the darkroom. Photography may be temporarily taking a back seat in her life right now, but I’m so proud of all the success and praise her and Colt have received on this exciting new journey of theirs.
As you can see, all their boots are made by hand and sewn together with American full-grain leather. Their workshop is based in Marfa, TX (dreamy, right?) where Logan and Colt spend their days creating the same way small-shop cowboy boot makers have been doing for over a century. Although they can work on several pairs at once, a single pair of boots takes nearly two and a half weeks to create — equating to the heart and soul of this small-batch handmade process.
I can’t wait to break in my new pair and watch them just get better upon each wear.
