Stingray Boots are some of the toughest cowboy boots you could ever own. These stingray boots are made from genuine stingray hides and each hide is unique. In their untanned form the stingray hides have a unique pattern of calcium deposits all over the hide. In the middle of the spine these pearl shaped deposits are larger and more pronounced, some even call them "horns". These spots are commonly sanded and then painted in a diamond shaped pattern. In the multi-spine style a narrow line is sanded the complete length of the spine. in the sanded stingray style the entire surface is sanded to give a different look. In their raw form they are all the same hide. Using these hides to make cowboy boots is a difficult process as these calcium deposits are extremely hard which makes it difficult to sew in any kind of straight line. Owning a pair of Stingray Boots is a true joy knowing that the vamp is virtually indestructible. Stingray Boots are especially popular today and you'll be sure to find what you want at Tim's Boots.
