With 4.4 ounces of 14K gold, and 100 diamonds commemorating 100 years of boot making, these boots were made for lookin' at and not wearin'
Hopefully these boots won't suffer the same fate as their predecessors. The current boots are known as the “El Rey (the king) IV”, and while the $32,000 El Rey IIIs are safe and secure at Tony Lama’s headquarters, the El Rey I and II were each stolen and remain missing. The original El Rey’s were made for Tony Lama’s 50th anniversary and valued in 1961 at a mere $5,000. They were stolen while on display in Florida. The El Rey IIs, valued at $10,000, met a similar fate in 1970.
