Cavender’s released their own line of boots: JRC and Sons to honor the passing of their patriarch, James Cavender.

“How do you honor the legacy of a man with more than 50 years in the boot business?  A man who believed that going above and beyond for customers was just the right way to do things.  

“James R. Cavender is our dad.  He built our family business from one little Western shop in Pittsburg, Texas to more than 85 stores across the country. He had an incredible work ethic and believed in doing things the right way.  He could spot real quality and true value in goods from a mile away.  He built real, lasting relationships with our customers, our communities and friends in the Western industry.

“But he never got to build his own boot – not his way.  So, we are doing it for him.  The spirit of our dad lives in every pair of JRC & Sons boots.  We thank you for helping us carry on his legacy.”

-Joe, Mike & Clay Cavender

We believe everyone deserves an authentic, hand-crafted Western boot at a great price – a new boot with an old soul.  A pair of boots that make you feel comfortable making your own way in the world.

With more than 50 years in the boot business, we know a bit about what makes a fine quality boot, and we know how to make it at a great price.  We’ve designed JRC & Sons boots right here in our hometown of Tyler, Texas, and we’ve searched around the world for the finest quality leathers: 

  • Genuine Full Quill Ostrich from South Africa 
  • Original Mad Dog Goat from the UK
  • Ranch Hand Calf, Premium Burnished Cowhide and Water-resistant Suede from the US

All JRC & Sons boots are handmade and hand lasted, creating the true level of quality that only hands-on craftsmanship can deliver. Featuring unique and exclusive hand-corded stitch patterns. The shafts of JRC & Sons boots have an inverted seam and are lined with soft leather for ultimate comfort. Lemonwood pegs and steel shanks are used to give lasting strength and durability. Only stacked leather heels are used. Premium leather covered insoles are used for an extra level of comfort and wearability. The look of JRC & Sons boots is timeless and authentic, with a nod to a man who expected the best and wanted the best for others.
