In our warehouse, we recently received a shipment of new Corral boots from its Vintage line that should be hotly anticipated for women of cutting-edge western fashion.
We took a closer look at these boots. First, we offer two types of new Corral cowgirl boots from the Vintage line with a snip toe — a sand and tan boot with laser-cut inlays and sequins and a Sierra tan boot with fringe and studs.
We also offer four Corral women’s boots from the Vintage line with a broad square toe — from left, a cognac and olive boot with laser-cut inlays, a brown and black boot with winged cross details, a black boot with inlays and sequins, and a black and pink boot accented with studs and crystals.
Looking at the boots right out of the box, we made the following observations:
1. Photos don’t do the boots justice. Their styling is more intricate than they initially appear. Photos taken from a few feet away don’t always pick up the sequins (such as the copper-colored ones shown below from the sand and tan boots), the intricacy of the inlays, and the overall craftsmanship. Company president Othell Welch takes pride in his unusual designs and the quality of the work at Corral’s factory, and it shows.
2. The boots come with a cushioned insole. Many descriptions overlook this feature of the boots, but it’s key to providing comfort for the wearer. It’s yet another reason why Welch says: “I’ll put our boot quality up against any boot company out there.”
3. Each Corral Vintage boot is unique. A tag attached to each boot says: “Our new Vintage line includes boots that are hand finished in order to achieve their vintage look. This adds character and individualism to each and every pair. By hand crafting and finishing, this guarantees that no two pair will be identical. Tinting, abrasions, and scarring are all part of the character of the boot.”
4. The leather outsoles feature injected rubber inserts. Each of these boots is described as containing a leather outsole. But the ball of the outsole of these Corral boots also feature an injected rubber insert, seen below. Welch says the insert provides a cushioned effect, provides more slip resistance than leather, wears better, and “is just different than what other boot makers use.” The cap of the heel is made of rubber as well.
5. The smell of the leather is intoxicating. Even longtime employees at Drysdales enjoy the aroma of quality-made leather western boots when the box is opened. Corral’s are no exception.
