"I sure hope to end up like my mother one day..." -Lizzy Chesnut Bentley
Our Mother's are one of the original influencers in our lives. The ones that support our hopes and help our dreams become a reality. They selflessly sacrifice themselves everyday to push us to be the best versions of ourselves. We even get our sense of style from our moms. Celebrating mom one day a year is never enough.
This is especially true for Lizzy Chesnut Bentley, founder of CITY Boots. "I definitely get my sense of style and love for people from my mom," says Lizzy. "When I first started my company she did everything she could to make sure it was a success. On so many levels, I would never be where I am today without her. I look forward to celebrating her this Mother's Day."
CITY Boots was created from a dream of wanting a woman's boot made to flatter feminine features. Growing up in Amarillo, Texas, Lizzy is not amateur when it comes to wearing and collecting cowboy boots. As a young adult it became more difficult to find boots that fit her lifestyle, thus CITY Boots was born.
Handcrafted by artisans in Leon, Mexico, each pair of CITY Boots undergoes over 250 steps from start to finish. Each pair resulting in a comfortable fit perfect for a night on the town boot scooten' or romping around the ranch.
Lizzy and the Chesnut family have been customers and friends of Clint Orms for many years. It is an honor to see how much Lizzy and CITY Boots have grown over the last 5 years and we couldn't be more proud to support her.
Day to day you can not only find Lizzy styled in a pair of CITY Boots but also showcasing one her most prized possessions …her Clint Orms custom Uvalde Heart buckle.
"My buckle symbolizes so much for me." said Lizzy. "When I first started CITY Boots, I went to work for Clint, helping with sales at trade shows. Watching how Clint not only cared for his customers and product but also the details like packaging that made a lasting impression on me. Many of which I have implemented into CITY Boots."
If you have already purchased a pair of CITY Boots, you know that her beautiful boxes come with hand-tied ribbons and a handwritten note with every pair. If you haven't, then you are in for an extra special treat when you receive your boots.
"Clint and his team are the gold standard for customer service and quality," stated Lizzy. "Something I try to emulate everyday. I wear my buckle as a reminder of these things." "Plus...it looks really great!"
