Do you think the quality is still there with IS? I sure like those eagles. I have always liked a tan or light brown with green tops.Stumbled across this a bit ago. Looks as if O S is up and running at their new site in Wichita Falls. What comes as a surprise is this outfit has acquired the Dixon Boot Co. name as well. The Dixon's are stock sizes and look like stuff I wouldn't wear to a dog fight. Shame, really, as Dixon made fine boots for awhile. This reminds me of one O S iteration where they owned Montana boots as well. At least Montana's usually looked better than the "Dixons".

I can’t shed much light here except to say this is a completely new website since I looked a couple of months ago. They were talking about new ownership then but the site was pretty rough.Dd, I do not know but hope so. The're still showing their historical line and doing MTM. They're bluebirds have long been on my bucket list. I don't know who the boot maker(s) is/are but from what I can gather, it's investors who have put this in place. Maybe @Richard Morgan will chime in. He occasionally travels the area.
That’s all just my observations and may not mean anything.
A bookmaker in the shop sure would be a good sign. My daughter and I visited Heritage Boots here in Austin when she was home for Christmas. The designs were mostly pretty cool and I thought they looked well made. They were proud that the boots were made in a single shop in Leon, Mexico. And the prices were almost reasonable. Unfortunately, neither of the sales people had a clue about fit. The tried to put me in everything from an 11 to a 13 (I’m about a 12.5 D or 13 B/C) and I never did find a boot that fit.Thank you, Richard. Your observations and mine are about the same. I'd want to see if there's a boot maker in that shop. I'm sure the Dixon's are made in Mexico. I wondered about O S when they got into the Montana boot line as far as where their boots might be made. Funny how the Henrietta legacy is mostly an afterthought.

That's comical, Richard. They don't have online ordering and they talk of their sales people having great success fitting people over the phone. Do they still not allow customers to handle boots w/o assistance?
Those are beauties Bob! They are the good ones, and with the box and paper even better. Amazing condition too.Noconas arrived. Not quite as “in your face” as the auction pics. Looks like they we’re put away in 1974 when Homer got some new boots.
Headlines seem almost fresh...
1974 almost NOS, that’s pretty cool. Good looking boots.
