We offer a large variety of spur straps, everything from plain and utilitarian to very fancy, unique spur leathers.
We make most of our spur straps out of the same English bridle leather most of our other items are made from. It is available in black, dark brown, medium brown, burgundy, chestnut and tan.
Some styles require a different leather choice. For example, the inlaid straps must be made out of a lighter weight leather, so we use Wickett and Craig strap leather. We can also make spur straps out of saddle skirting and other select vegetable tanned strap leathers.
Harness leather and latigo can be used for plain, utilitarian straps. However, neither of these types of leather can be stamped.
One of the nice things about spur straps is the almost unlimited combinations of styles, patterns and stamping options. Although we have added a number of photos below, we have many more patterns available, not to mention a number of different stamps.
As we make different styles over the year we will add them to the page. If you don't see what you are looking for, please get in touch as we probably have made it before.
Any of the sterling, sterling overlay and silver plate buckles that we use on the headstalls can also be used to dress up spur straps. For a less fancy look, we use the same #132 buckles in brass, chrome and stainless steel that we use on the headstalls.
You will notice conchos on a couple pair of spur straps in the photos below. Not all bridle conchos can be used on spur straps as well. If you see something that interests you, but aren't sure if we can use that concho, please get in touch and we'll see what can be done.
When ordering spur straps, it is helpful for us to know who made your spurs. Different makers use different measurements for their spurs. The problem with strap fit is in the length of the heel band. If the spurs have a longer heel band than usual, they will require a shorter strap.
Although we are familiar with a number of spur makers, we don't know all of them. If we don't know the maker of your spurs we may ask you to take a simple measurement.
Put the spur on your boot, then use a flexible tape measure to measure the distance from the center on one button across the foot to the center of the button. This measurement will tell us how long to make the strap.
If a flexible tape measure is not available, you can use a string from button to button across the top of the foot. Be sure to place the string over the foot where you want the spur strap to lay. Then lay the string out on a regular ruler and measure from the end to the point that marked the center of the other button.
