When Chris Liggett was knee high to a grasshopper, his dream was to be a cowboy, but as he got older, he realized that living in the heart of Houston, that dream wasn’t very practical….but his love of cowboy boots never wavered. He got his first job out of high school as an apprentice under Mike Kirkendahl at Tejas Custom Boots back in 2000. Fast forward a mere 16 years later….. Mike decided it was time to finally hang it up and retire, Chris bought the company, ensuring that Tejas Custom Boots is still around making great quality, one of a kind boots for generations to come.
The many decades and locations may have changed, but the brick and mortar of the staff, and quality work, has kept clientele coming back for their next pair of boots. This Houston institution has been outfitting business men, oilmen, professional athletes, worldly dignitaries, and a few of our own Presidents and Governors, as seen in photo’s on our store walls.
