A lot of people don’t like the road, but it’s as natural to me as breathing. I do it because I’m driven to do it, and I either hate it or love it. I’m mortified to be on the stage, but then again, it’s the only place where I’m happy. It’s the only place you can be who you want to be. You can’t be who you want to be in daily life. I don’t care who you are, you’re going to be disappointed in daily life. But the cure-all for all that is to get on the stage, and that’s why performers do it. But in saying that, I don’t want to put on the mask of celebrity. I’d rather just do my work and see it as a trade…[Bob Dylan]
Billy F Gibbons is a legendary Texas rocker, hot-rodder, guitar-shredder and beard-grower. He and his ZZ Top bandmates helped spread Texas to the world through a signature sound and a brash style like nothing anyone had seen before.
When we were looking to co-design a limited-edition boot with an iconic Texan, Billy was the natural choice. As a lifelong admirer of boots and of good design, we were thrilled to have him involved in every step of the design process.
The result is the BFG, a new kind of cowboy boot that combines a classic style with a rock ‘n’ roll attitude. The design takes inspiration from Billy’s personal infatuation with cars, guitars and making music, combined with his (and our) passion for sharing Texas with the world.
