Texas Traditions

A cowboy boot is one of the most iconic symbols of Texas and has become, over time, the official footwear of the state. In this episode of “All Roads Lead to Texas,” host Dylan Thuras heads to Austin to visit a boot-making institution, Texas Traditions. Owner Lee Miller has been making cowboy boots here since the 1970s, using the same techniques that the previous owner did when he opened the shop more than 100 years ago. Get an inside look at how a custom, Texas cowboy boot is made by hand, from the sole on up.
