(Think your boots make you a bad ass? Time to to meet the Honey Badger. This cute little thing just killed a 20 foot rock python in this picture. And no, she won’t give you the hide.)
The appeal of a snakeskin boot is easy to see. It simply looks like something that can kill you.
It’s no accident, therefore, that this aggressive look is favored by whiskey soaked rockers, Rambo wannabes and “snake oil salesman” which generally refers to any man or woman that is totally full of shit. The late billionaire T. Boone Pickens, one of the world’s great snake oil specialists (sold people wind farms before they had turbines) was known to wear his Tasmanian Python boots to bed with a pistol tucked in his socks.
At the risk of sounding politically incorrect, at Shooli we love bringing your snakeskin boots back to life. That includes those faux hides favored by PETA lovers (which we fully embrace) that can be trickier to repair than the real thing. So don’t hesitate to send us your Tony Lamas, Dan Posts or Noconas for a heel replacement, stitch or shine. We’ll give you 20% off your first order, so you can get back to killing it. No matter what you may be full of.
