Many amazing companies got their start in El Paso, Texas. At the top, of our list, Rocketbuster Boots, one of the finest and most creative custom boot companies in the world. We recently caught up with “The Boss Lady, Nevena Christi who now runs the show, her partner and other half Marty Snortum is currently occupied as a talented photographer.
The boots are over the top fabulous, and only about500 pair are made every year. If you can imagine a design, Nevena can brilliantly conceive it and kick it onto a pair of custom boots. The beautifully fitting boots are works of art and have been worn by the likes of Sharon Stone, Tom Cruise, Meg Ryan, Oprah and Steven Spielberg, just to name a few.
A pair of boots can set you back $650-$5000 (averaging $900), but well worth every colorful stitch. Walking into Rocketbuster’s work and showroom is like a vintage candy explosion made of leather. If you ever find yourself, in El Paso Texas, you must make a trip to their turn-of the century downtown brick warehouse. Plan on ordering a pair…you will no doubt be saying Love Them, Want Them, Have to Have Them!1
