Tecovas’ Alligator Boots Are Surprisingly Stylish and (Relatively) Affordable

’ handmade, premium western boots have long been a favorite of ours at The Manual. Its direct-to-consumer retail model ensures superb quality at a price that won’t break the bank – a blessing to have as an option in the premium boot world. The Austin, Texas-based bootmakers have delivered yet again with their release of another beautiful flagship exotic boot silhouette crafted with American alligator leather.

Tecovas alligator boots are a first for the brand in their use of alligator belly material, with the exception of their caiman belly boots from a couple years ago. The boots hold true to Tecovas’ signature style of high-quality craftsmanship, optimal comfort, and chic versatility.

The Tecovas alligator boot is available in two separate styles and two colorways: one, The Austin, features a classic cowboy boot cut with an angled heel; the other, dubbed The Townes, flaunts a roper boot shape with a shorter heel. Both profiles feature diagonally cut scales and a hand-lasted calfskin shaft coupled with unique, high-quality stitching for added resilience and longevity. The new boot release also marks a brand-new exclusive color scheme from Tecovas: an absolutely stunning and rustic mid-brown walnut.

The Austin design is Tecovas’ classic cowboy boot built for both casual and formal settings. This means you can rock these whether you’re heading to a Honky Tonk for the night, a fancy black-tie event, or even a modish addition to your work wardrobe. They feature a unique strip-style construction for added style points, a hand-lasted angled heel (1½”), and a long complementary brown calfskin leather shaft (12”).

The Townes silhouette sports a roper style that comes with a shorter shaft (10”), a rounded toe, and a block-shaped heel (1⅛”). This Tecovas style is an even better piece for casual settings, but it still offers enough elegance for classy affairs, as well.

Tecovas has coined these as the “finest boots the brand has ever made,” so Tecovas and everyday boot fans alike should both get a kick out of these puppies. The Tecovas alligator boots are now available on the Tecovas website and its retail store in Austin, Texas.

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
