After looking at them in the Tecovas store, I ordered a pair of Jasper in my size. The boots arrived quickly but were subpar. The dye on the Ostrich skin was really splotchy and non-matching pieces of skin were used in the same boot. I took them back to the store, and the clerk lectured me on smooth Ostrich skin and that there was nothing wrong with the boots. I showed her the display Jasper pair, which were basically perfect, and she did not have an explanation and refunded my money. I have four other pairs of Tecovas including another pair of Jasper and am happy with all of them. They should not have sent the pair I received and should train their employees to argue about clearly defective boots in hopes of avoiding a refund.

Not worth the money

By Ron O., Madera, CA, Verified Reviewer

While the boots were new, they looked and seemed of quality materials. After wearing them for about a year (about two times a week) the leather on the upper part of the shaft split and showed a thin rope under the very thin leather. Then on the toe of the sole the leather wore completely out so as to show the inner sole. I believe that the leather that is used to make these boots is of inferior quality leather. Of course I am not a leather expert and this is just my opinion.

Length of Use: 6–12 months

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Repeat customer

By D C., Huntsville, AL, Verified Reviewer

I've ordered several times, with good results. The boots are nice, well made. I have several other brands including custom boots, and these are slightly better as the finishing work inside is more carefully done. They were out of the boot jacks several times, finally got them to send me a notice when in stock. The mail went astray but finally arrived (not their fault). I'd like to see more information about caring for Caiman, and some boot "covers" sometimes called boot socks - the boots wear them, not you. Other companies have them, such as Lucchese.

Don't waste your valuable time!

By Scott A., Lampasas, TX, Verified Reviewer

A little background, I ordered the original pair of boots on 12/28/2020, I was told it would be about 10 days for delivery. I received a shipping notice that my boots were on the way, but when they didn't show up, I called customer service. They said they would look into it, they probably did. They got back to me and said FedEx lost the package. Really? OK, so they shipped another pair. So, back and forth emails, the totals are this, 10 failed delivery dates, 1 day they said they attempted delivery (lie, we have a camera at the end of our driveway). Today, they said they delivered the package (another lie). Now FedEx is doing an "investigation".

You could say that this isn't Tecovas' fault. But I asked them to find another delivery company and was told that I may need to change my address. Really? To what? I've not had any issues with deliveries before, as a matter of fact, FedEx delivered other items to my home today, less the boots of course.

As the title says, don't waste your valuable time, especially if you live rurally. I've wasted well over 8 hours dedicated to this issue with no signs of relief. Your items will conveniently come up missing. I can only hope I can get my money returned. But if it's anything like the boots, good luck!

Awesome product and customer service!

By Sharon G., Summerville, SC, Verified Reviewer

I recently ordered the Penny online, and absolutely loved them. When we learned a Tecovas store had opened on King Street we couldn't wait to go. My husband and I were there today and bought two pairs of boots. The customer service was awesome, relaxing, and top-shelf. We'll be back!

Bad customer service

By Richard B., California, Verified Reviewer

This company is one of the worst companies I have ever done business with. Customer service, they never answer you, they ship a pair of boots via FedEx and it goes to Charlotte in North Carolina, I live in Southern California. Why are the boots going to the East Coast when I live on the West Coast? When I email to find out why, no one ever answers me. If I put a stop payment on the payment of the boot, they would surely contact me. Looks to me like they only worry about money, not the customer.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great company and products

By Todd S., Florida, Verified Reviewer

I have purchased 3 pairs of boots, black caiman, gun smoke ostrich, and gun smoke python as well as a pair of jeans, and both a large and small leather duffle.

So far all products have been great and any interaction with the company has been great as well.

I received a pair of Tecovas Suede boots as a gift and from the moment I got the package and took them out and started wearing then they felt so comfortable, I didn't need to break them in at all.

I would recommend the Tecovas brand to my friends.

Difficulty in putting Tecovas boots on.

By Dan E., Santa Ana, CA, Verified Reviewer

I have purchased two pairs of Tecovas, one caiman and one ostrich. The ostrich was purchased for my brother. The problem that both of us have experienced with our boots is the high, high, high degree of difficulty we have had putting the boots on. My caiman boots are extremely comfortable to wear but I sometimes cannot wear them at all because my foot gets stuck in the shank before ever reaching the footbed. I don't know why but my guess would be that the circumference of the shaft opening is not big enough.

I would like to wear my boots more often but if I go to the gym to work out I can't guarantee that I'll be able to put them back on.

I am also very interested in buying the American alligator boots but based upon the degree of difficulty I have wearing my caiman boots I can't see spending the money on the alligators.

I have worn boots all my life including many many Justins, Dan Post, Tony Lama, Texas, Ariat, to name the ones I can remember and/or still have. I have never encountered the problems putting on my boots with any other brands that I have encountered with Tecovas. Again, once on they are great, but getting them on is a struggle.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
