Handmade boots maker Paul Bond was born in or around 1916, into a Seminole Texas ranching family, and was raised in Carlsbad, New Mexico. (He used to say he had told so many stories about his age that he was no longer sure when he was born.)
He grew up on ranches, and worked in a saddle and western handmade cowboy boots shop. Paul trained mounts for the U.S. Horse Cavalry by riding them to school.
He started hand making cowboy boots in 1932, and continued through his successful career as a champion bareback bronc rider and trick rider.
Paul Bond started his handmade cowboy boots business in 1946, while continuing rodeoing through 1951.
Paul Bond moved his handmade custom cowboy boots operation to Nogales Arizona in 1955, and built its present location (the Barn) in 1979. (Click here for location of the Paul Bond Custom Cowboy Boots barn if you are in the neighborhood)
In 1992, Paul Bond was inducted into the Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame as a great bareback bronc rider.
Paul Bond became known for well-shaped handmade custom cowboy boots that would serve the cowboys & cowgirls, gentlemen & ladies, at work or play, and for his designs of decorative patterns and adaptations of special customer wishes for their Paul Bond handmade cowboy boots.
Paul Bond Custom Cowboy Boots offer men & women a unique and individual means of expressing themselves; ways of standing out in a crowd while enjoying high quality, whether cowboy, cowgirl, gentleman or lady, man or woman,on a ranch or in town, with everlasting style and quality .
Paul Bond left us in February, 2012. His legacy remains.
