Nice shoes. Ken Maley told me when he started making them the riders would go to local junk yards and take the bumpers off of cars, cut the ends off and use them for hot shoes. He figured he could do better (with those mid-west blacksmithing skills) and did.
I was so very fortunate to meet him before he passed along. A generous and memorable man.

Happy Trails
