  4. Walter K from Victoria, Canada writes: Actually, I will put my money on the Alberta Boot Co. Canadian made in Calgary.

I own several pairs from a light weight Kangaroo to a brushed soft Bull hide. You can get them off the shelf or customized.
    Hollywood is nice but we have got some of the best boots in the world right here in Canada.
