New from Tecovas: The Zips

As a brand built on listening to customers and taking their feedback & needs seriously, Tecovas designed the Zip Boot to solve two major problems:  First, the need for a boot that’s easy to pull on for those who have difficulty due to age or foot shape, and second, the need for a boot that fits well under slimmer-cut pants.

After over a year in product development and testing, Tecovas has released a seriously versatile boot.  Their new Zip Boots are a little bit country, and a little bit rock and roll.  They are very versatile, appealing to boot-wearers young and old, first-timers and many-timers. It provides Tecovas’ signature style with easy-to-wear features.  Available in two styles: the Dean is the traditional bourbon smooth leather, and the Roy is the honey suede version.

More images of both:

A bit of mod, Beatles-esque feel here, right?  I like the look, especially with more of my slimmer jeans.  These close the gap between some of my Chelsea boots and cowboy boots, as they have a slimmer profile.  And the suede is about as cool as it gets…  Both boot styles are available on and in Tecovas’ new retail store in Austin.

What do you think?

    I think these will be a hard sell to guys.

    I like the idea from a practical standpoint but I don’t think I could ever bring myself to wear a pair with the side zipper.

    A friend of mine bought a pair of zipper boots and tried to pass them off as cowboy boots. A decade later we still make fun of him. Hard pass.

    This honestly makes me think less of Tecovas as a brand lol

    My grandfather has worn side zips for years to church and in dressier situations. I’d imagine he’s more of a cowboy than anyone who reads this blog. I think these are sharp.

    Florsheim used to make side zip “dress” black boot that looked very sharp (I remember a KY Banker who I worked with wore them) if Tecova comes out w/ a pair in black I would make the leap!

    I think these fall into the same category as a Chelsea boot.  Dressier, but would definitely add this to my construction-casual arsenal.

    I had a pair of J&M zips for while that I really liked, they were much taller though. The short height doesn’t work unless you’re wearing them with a sundress and a sorority button with shaker is sticking out of them.

    I bought a pair of the “The Roy”‘s and I love them. I like to keep the leg opening on my pants at 14” or slimmer so the traditional Tecovas boot shaft always was very visible, with these I dont have that problem. This is a great Chelsea/Cowboy hybrid and I recommend them, for what its worth.

    Yeah… no.  This boot is for all of the “Austin Cowboys”.
