Businessman. Gained acclaim as the "Bootmaker to the Stars". The Tony Lama Company began operation in 1912 as a small shoe-repair shop in El Paso, Texas. He began making western style boots, and became known as an innovator in the boot-making industry. He introduced such changes as lower heals and rounded toes that made the boot adaptable for walking as well as riding.
