StitchWalker - Handmade Cosplay Shoes & Custom Leather Boots
About Us

How We Do It

Stitchwalker Specializes in bringing your most specific and wild boot dreams to life by customizing every element. You get to choose the type of leather, height up the leg, button style, colors, and artwork. Then our artists craft your pair to perfection.

We begin the process by casting your whole foot and leg. That’s right; it’s not just a standard size or width. The shape of your toes, the size of your calf, your arch, and even prosthetics or braces are taken into account. Truly a perfect fit. After carefully crafting each pattern, we follow every specification provided by our clients to ensure they receive the boots of their dreams. No matter what type of artwork you wish to incorporate in your design, you can count on us to deliver. It is our dream for every one of our clients to wear their boots with true pride, comfort, and excitement.

Brianna Adair

James is an anchor in this business, physically and metaphorically building our booths and client relations everywhere he goes.  If you choose to get fit in person, there’s a big chance you’ll get to work with him.  No matter the order, you can be sure that James will make the experience fun and easy.

Best Handmade Cosplay Shoes & Custom Leather Boots - StitchWalker
Customized All The Way

Our Work Speaks For Itself

There is, without a doubt, a big difference between the boots we handcraft and mass-produced custom boots that use preset designs, uppers, soles, and more. We take our craft very seriously and aim to provide the best possible boots to all our customers. After all, we know you don’t want to settle for anything but your dream boots.

We Recycle And Reuse

Our Efforts To Build A Sustainable Future

It’s important to us that we protect our planet and help our fellow artists. All excess soling is sent to a recycling facility that makes rubber mulch for playgrounds. Antler remnants from our buttoning process are sold or donated to other artists, designers, and business owners for numerous products and applications. Any leather we cannot use on boots is used by renaissance festival, Celtic fest, and cosplay vendors to create their own products. If you wish to buy any of our remnants, please reach out!

What Our Customers Say

“Just got my pair that you moved the main stitch on to prevent it from falling along a painful surgery site.  I’m AMAZED.  20-something years of boots being at best unpleasant or at worst cripplingly painful, and AT LAST I HAVE a pair I can unreservedly love.  Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you…There is ZERO doubt we’ll be repeat offenders.”

“We walked in [to a show] and were instantly welcomed with a friendly team of folks. The staff let us know that the makers are artists and like a challenge, so I started asking about some of the custom pieces they had hanging about and asked if a badger could be designed and put on a boot.

I got a big ol resounding “YES!” and had my badger headed sporran on me and Anika burst out of the back room with excitement to take a photo of the badger for reference. Great and warm experience in the sales shop. A few months later I get messages from Anika telling me that she is starting to design my boots and wanted me to approve any artwork ideas we both had. After a few sketches we decided on a celtic style badger and away she went. A few weeks later , I received my new moccasins with instructions on how to care for them. I immediately put them on and they were amazing! By the time I was wearing them at the Festival 2 days later they had already become the perfect fit. A short while later my wife got messages from Anika and the design , crafting , and delivery process began anew. We are both thrilled with the finished product, and have since brought friends to buy their own.”

“ I got a pair of Stitchwalker boots about two years ago. they are a black pair with a Celtic design. They can be worn to the Ren fair or with my every day clothes. the boots are 100% leather and fit me like a glove. Anyone who ever wanted a custom made pair of boots that are absolutely gorgeous, need to get them from Stitchwalker. Their attention to the details is unmatched. They truly care how they look but especially how they fit.”

Beth E.

“ Absolutely wonderful! Better than I could have imagined!”

Ashley H.

“My boots are masterpieces, and works of art. It took me a year to get them, and a year to break them in well enough to wear them comfortably because of the amount of leatherwork I asked for- but as a man who has worn boots for work, for recreation, and for daily wear his entire life, the best boots are the ones that take awhile to tame. Today I wore these boots to the gym with a kilt and worked out with them, preparing to compete in these boots in Highland Games. They have seen mud and rocks and trails and heavy weights, without much sign of wear.

I absolutely love these boots, and the customer service and consultation process in getting them designed and made was a breeze. If you like cowboy boots, or you’ve spent a portion of your life wearing steel toes, trust me- these boots are molded to your feet, filled with sheepskin, and ready to support you all day. They’re a dream.”
