Nudie Cohn, rodeotailor

The boots, the shine and glamour…kaboom! Still, when I see his designs I really get exited. Although his style, or western boots for that matter, are not “en vogue” as we speak. I certainly would walk around in them, I surely would, every day, every hour! elvis presley and nudie cohnnudie cohn boots

Nudie Cohen passed away in 1984, his famous, beautiful shop closed in 1995.
Yours truly once visited this shop in West-Hollywood in the seventies of the previous century,  I could have spend an entire day there.
