The National Outfitters of Texas
Reviewed the world over as THE preeminent handmade cowboy boot source, Texas National Outfitters (TNO) prides itself on furthering Texas culture through the traditions of exceptional quality and attention to detail. We started as a small specialty shop in Katy Texas dedicated to designing and selling the finest handmade boots in the industry along with supporting local artisans that create unique products.
The focus on local and unique helped define TNO and soon the expansion to the heart of Texas came calling - the SoCo area of Austin. We are uncompromising in the pursuit of quality and redefining the overall shopping experience. If you have ever been to the TNO Austin location you will know that live music and an amazing atmosphere are the hallmarks of the store. TNO brought on some the finest bootmakers from around Texas and soon the reputation for custom boots and repairs was cemented (our Master Bootmaker has made boots for 7 Presidents). In 2014 the Flagship location in Houston took shape with the vision that the founder wanted since TNO’s inception (Texas’ finest products, handmade in front of you in a laid back environment). The store is a shrine to Texas history complete with the custom boot shop in back, a permanent live music stage, and leather workers hand-tooling products in the retail space. Today the Houston store boasts a huge selection of handmade products that are shipped all over the world.
TNO is much more than a retail store - book a private party in store, have us come out to your corporate event, let us outfit and entertain your wedding party, we'll make your employees unique gifts, or just come experience the ultimate feeling of designing your own custom boots - the finest in Texas. We are intent on making cowboy boots span genres and cultures, while trying not to polarize boots just for rodeo. Cowboy boots exude an sense of independent bravado that are perfectly suited for boardroom or the ranch and everything in between. Our handmade boots are extremely comfortable and allow you to show off your independent spirit.
We support over 50 local artisans that make a bulk of our product for us. Much of this is unique and not on the website so make it a point to stop in to our Katy, Austin, or Houston location for very cool gear and come back frequently because it is always changing. Our goal is to utilize the amazing artisans that are all around us and create something that will be treasured for a lifetime. We are not a big-box store and never will be. We support the community and support Texas culture. We want to greet you as a friend and have you as a customer forever.
God Bless Texas!
