Zerrows Pecos Boots – Natural Chromexcel Leather


We are big Pecos and pull on boots fans and, for very good reason, we wanted to expand what we stock from Zerrows and so, you can see what we did here. The Zerrows Pecos are classic, very very well made, heavily stitched with piped and reinforced side seams (a lot of work) and in a great pattern using a very nicely shaped last. We really like them!

We chose Zerrows semi chiselled toe last and it is superb. It is quite a sleek last (smaller than the flat toe), has a rounded tapered toe, good volume over the toes and mid foot and is shapely in the waist and throughout. Take a look at the size advice but we feel this fits a half to whole size smaller than their flat toe last. This shapely last works perfectly on the Pecos, it gives them that classic look landing somewhere between a work and cowboy boot. The shaft is slim for tighter hems but there is enough width at the ankle and instep for them to slip on in the right size whilst going over 8″ trouser hems no problem (in size 9 for example).

Comfort: Immediate, they are not a fussy fit at all, quite good for a mix of foot shapes as there is medium arch support (not flat, not exaggerated) and there is volume in height over your foot to adapt as they break in. They are not particularly narrow but wider feet might want to go up half a size.

The Leather:  Horween Natural Chromexcel. It’s about the most popular leather we sell boots in and for a very good reason. It ages beautifully.

Construction & finish: The best materials and construction methods have been used in these boots, just see the DETAILS tab. The stitching is very neat and uniform, the heel well balanced and elegantly shaped and the sole trim is even and nicely done. 

What’s more, they even come with extra leather insoles that you can add or remove to adjust the fit.

The Zerrows Pecos are made on their semi chisel toe last which come up smaller than the flat toe last by about half to whole size dependent. It feels good on the foot, Slim – normal in the heel, shapely in the waist without being tight, standard D width at the ball which tapers towards the toe. If you have wide splayed toes then you might want to go up a half size from the below. They also have quite good volume over the mid foot and toes so if they do feel a little snug to begin with there is room to accommodate when they are broken in. In the right size they should not be difficult to get on or off either, there is good room in the instep and shaft opening.
