How do I order a pair of Leahy Custom Hiking Boots?Bespoke orthopedic boots

For optimal fit I recommend an in-person casting of your feet. I am not far from the San Francisco and San Jose airports. Whether you are on business or vacation, we can arrange a convenient time to cast your feet. Many of my clients fly or drive to Santa Cruz just to have their feet measured in person. Only one in-person visit is required.

How much do the boots cost?

The all inclusive price of a pair of boots is $1975 which includes the boots, orthotic arch supports, developing the lasts and mock-up boots to try on. (Steel-toe boots and extreme orthopedic cases are somewhat more.) Although this may seem higher than some other makers, keep in mind that I include orthotics and an intermediate fitting, services that other makers charge extra for or don’t offer at all. Additional pairs of boots are $400 less, because the last development and fitting costs have already been covered in the first pair. Additional shoes are $500 less ($1475) because shoes require smaller amounts of leather. Lasts are the forms that your boots are built around. There is a one-time fee of $400 (included in the $1975 cost of your initial boots) to develop the lasts. Included in this fee is a fitting with fitting boots and your actual orthotic arch supports. This critical extra step is essential to ensure your boots fit well!  Your boots include custom orthotic arch supports. I recommend my orthotics (they fit the boots better), but you can use your own. You can remove the orthotics that come with the boots and put in your own. I can supply spacers if your orthotics are especially thin. There is no extra charge for differently sized feet (such as one foot size 7 and the other foot size 9). Shipping is free in the United States. There is a fifty dollar shipping and handling charge to other countries. IMG_0082

What forms of payment do you accept?

Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover credit cards, checks and cash in US funds are accepted.

Payment Schedule

A 50% deposit is due at the time of the initial casting. The balance is due after the fitting and BEFORE the final boots are made. I appreciate your understanding concerning this policy.
