Trunk Show: Tres Outlaws Boot Co.

Cowboy up — the luxe, stylish way — at J. Gilbert Footwear on September 10 and 11.

By Laura Cassidy September 7, 2010

Tres Outlaws Boot Co. designer Scott Emerich will be kicking up dust at J. Gilbert Footwear this week.

Brought on by the return of the pointy-toed heel (see It-designer Isabel Murant’s, the ongoing obsession with the 50s, Prada, Marc J collections I and II, and the hipster-led return of 90s-era winklepickers and cowboy clogs), sharp-fronted feet have been catching my eye lately. And on a cool day in July I started daydreaming about fall, and cowboy boots. If you’ve been thinking about pulling yours out of the closet again, or maybe even investing in a new pair, allow me to direct you to J. Gilbert Footwear where a trunk show featuring Tres Outlaws Boot Company’s co-founder and lead designer Scott Emmerich ought to kick the inclination into full-on desire.

Though not necessarily a heritage brand like Lucchese or Tony Lama, Tres Outlaws’ handmade ethos and sometimes over-the-top styling has nonetheless caught the eye of style watchers and luxury brand experts.

Emmerich will be at J. Gilbert on Sept 10 and 11 talking about pointed-toes and gorgeous leathers, and guiding customers in designing their own one-of-a-kind artisan-crafted boot. Call 206-441-1182 to make an appointment.
