  • Need Zippers Installed on previously non-zipped boots!

    I know this has been asked before, but shops close/change hands, so I would like up to date info! I have a nice pair of Petries that I’d like to use as schooling boots, but they need zippers. Not replacements, new ones installed. I’m on the west coast, so it would be nice to save on shipping...

    No suggestions on shops as I am in the midwest and use Pisano for that kind of work (loved the work BTW).

    But whoever you find - be very specific to the point of annoyance that they install the zippers exactly where you want them. Mine came out great - added a zipper to the inside front - but I had a friend who used a non-riding boot cobbler and they installed the inside zipper right up the middle. Destroyed the boots for the intended use as the were sitting directly on the saddle. If you want them up the back - know that you'll lose some of the stiffness of the boot, if you like that at all.

      Woodys of Wellington. You will have to ship, but they do it right.

        I've done this before! I used Xenia Shoe and Leather Repair (they have pre-paid shipping labels, so it doesn't matter if you're not in the Midwest) and they did a very good job. They actually have 3 different types of zippers and you can talk to them about options. Pisano and Sons in Pennsylvania is also excellent, but ~4x more expensive.
