What’s This Ferrini?…..


In our search to find you the best products at the best value, we ran across Ferrini Boots.  After looking at these great boots, of course we jumped on board.  Now, the brand is not as commonly known as some of our other brands, so I wanted to give you some information on these awesome boots!  



“The Ferrini Italia brand originates from generations of commerce in exotic skins and premium leathers , procuring  quality natural leathers from locations such as Africa, Indonesia, Argentina, Asia,  Australia and Louisiana and shipping to the finest boot and shoe craftsmen in the world.  Today, the fourth generation of the family takes advantage of this expertise, combining original designs and styling from their Italian shoes with centuries old connections to North American boot making traditions to produce a specialty line of exclusive leather products with careful attention to detail and finish.

“Ferrini’s worldwide access of leathers and full control of the process from procurement through tanning creates the unique opportunity to make a perfect choice of premium material for each unique style of handcrafted boot or shoe.  The result is better quality which means better fit and ultimate comfort.  Combine this quality with ever-evolving unique and exotic styles and you have a classic choice for every purpose and occasion and for every budget.

Each pair of Ferrini boots are handcrafted and include leather soles and lining, orthopedic cushioned foot bed and hand driven wooden pegs.  Ferrini’s full line of boots include:

Step Out in Minnetonka….


Renegade has been carrying Minnetonka brand moccasins , boots, slippers, and booties for quite some time now,  We think that we should take a little time and explain why we chose to carry this brand for you.  Some of the customer questions that I have had over the last year or so about Minnetonka pertain to the price and quality.  Yes, these products will run you more than the generic knock-offs that are all over the place now a days, but you are getting what you pay for!  Minnetonka brand is known for it’s use of premium hides and the exceptional quality of their products.  This in a nutshell, is why Renegade carries this brand for you, our valued customers.  We want to offer you the best!



“Since 1946, Minnetonka has been a staple of American style. As post-war Americans took to the highways exploring the country’s natural beauty, they stumbled upon resorts and souvenir shops carrying traditional handmade goods. And in the process, rediscovered America’s original footwear in Minnetonka moccasins.

Today, our products can be seen all around the world—from the Boundary Waters of Minnesota to the streets of New York, London, and Tokyo. No matter the footprint, all are made with the same uncompromising craftsmanship using only the finest quality materials. Minnetonka continues to define American culture with classic design that is forever connected to our natural, free-spirited heritage.



Minnetonka products are expertly hand-crafted using only the finest materials such as premium deerskin and moosehide. Each and every detail is a tribute to our roots in traditional moccasin footwear with authentic accents like fringe, beading and embroidery. The result is footwear with an enduring and distinctive style that is constructed to stand the test of time.” (

2Minnetonka is worn in 6 continents!  Also, Minnetonka can be seen being worn by those famous trend setters in and around Hollywood.  There is a reason why Minnetonka is so popular!  Renegade carries a wide selection of men’s, ladies, and kids so that you can create that amazing look for the whole family!3


There is a big difference between Minnetonka and the other, less expensive, brands.  Quality is something that really matters when it comes to fit and durability.  Stop in at Renegade today and let one of our friendly, knowledgeable sales associates show you our line of Minnetonka.  Can’t make it in?  No worries!  Renegade has an online store that is available from the comfort of your own home (and jammies for that matter), 27 hours a day seven days a week!  Check out Minnetonka and see why they are the leaders in their industry and why Renegade loves them as well!







Wind, Cold, and Calves Oh My……


It’s getting to be that time of the year again.  Yes, I’m talking about calving season!  And as you know, this time of year brings on more challenges than just those pertaining to our favored four-legged friends.  Mother nature does not always make calving this time of year easy either!  Between the extreme cold, high winds, and snow storms with everything in between, one can wonder what they were thinking at times.  This is where Renegade can help you out.  No, we are not buddy-buddy with Mother Nature, but we can help you prepare for what she has in store.


Here at Renegade, we have what you need to cover yourself from head to toe, no matter what the weather.  We carry Muck Boots, to keep your feet dry and warm on those cold, wet, nothing seems to go right, days.  Renegade also has a wide selection of Carhartt coats, bibs and coveralls, work pants, and caps.  We carry gloves, socks, headwer, work shirts, and so much more.

‘Tis the Season for that unique and perfect gift for your special someone!  Do you know what you are giving?  If not, let Renegade help you put some Tin into your Christmas Haul.  Tin Haul creates apparel, accessories and footwear for those that wear their metal as badges of honor.


Now if you haven’t seen Tin Haul boots and footwear before, you truly are missing out on something.  Tin Haul cowboy boots showcase traditional western square toes and easy-wearing walking heels. The look is a tip of the hat to classic roper cowboy boots. Each pair of boots also features the traditional pull straps and v’d shafts that most of you Renegade shoppers seek. There is something a bit different and even, dare we say, a little risque about Tin Haul Boots with their leather treatments, colors, graphics, and story themes.  These could be some of the flashiest boots on the market that can set off your style and attitude!  

Tin Haul takes premium leathers and beats them into vintage submission with treatments that add wrinkling, heavily distressed marks, and scuffs that show off your edgy side.  Yes, the leathers are different and completely their own, and paired with the overlays, inlays, embroidery, and colors are absolutely show stopping!


What else you ask?  Well we haven’t even got to the best part of Tin Haul Bootyet……

1Renegade thinks that the most interesting design element on them are what you walk on.  The outsoles!  As you take each step, your family, friends, strangers, and heck, the whole world is amazed by the unique design under your feet. With each step of your stunning boots, style with brilliant, unique outsole designs in true brightness emerge.  

Some Tin Haul Boots tell a story and blend all the colors, graphics, and designs together, like the Don’t Fence Me In Beef BootPeacock Boot and the Benjamin Money Boot. Others have absolutely nothing in common from top to bottom, adding to the overall genius of them. Tin Haul boots demand that you “Wear Your Metal Out” and Renegade obeys. Tin Haul began with a mission to do something that has never been done before, and might we say, mission complete. Tin Haul was founded fairly recently in 2008 with influences from surfers and urban culture. But don’t think that Tin Haul is not truly doing what they do for the cowboy lifestyle.  They just want to make sure that you get one unique boot that without words, tells your story with each step!

What a Bad Bass…..



Renegade is always looking for new and exciting products for you, our loyal customers.  This boot is one way that we did that….by custom making a boot for you!  Here are a few facts about the “Big Bass” Boot here at Renegade.  And yes…these boots are a little fishy!

The foot of these boots is made from Pirarucu.  The arapaima, pirarucu, or paiche is a genus of bonytongue.  Pirarucu is one of the world’s largest fish and is native to the Amazon River.  These fish can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh up to 485 pounds.  Now that’s one big fish stick! 

amazon fish

Don’t think that these boots aren’t as durable as they are unique because they certainly are.  These fish have gigas scales that have a highly mineralized, very hard outer layer with a corrugated surface under which lie several layers consisting of collagen fibers.  The fibers in each successive layer are oriented at right angles to that of the previous layer for maximum toughness.  This structure is similar to that of plywood.  The hard corrugated surface of the outer layer, the soft but tough internal structured, collagen layer, and the hydration of the scales all contribute to their ability to flex while remaining strong. Anderson Bean has done their homework on making sure this hide holds up to the use of our hard working customers!


These boots are definitely cutting edge with a classy look.  You can’t go wrong with the double stitch welt, rust colored shaft, and white piping that help tie this boot together and provide a one of a kind, timeless look.  Feel free to try a pair of these boots on today, and find yourself saying, “Here Fishy, Fishy!”

Can’t make it into Renegade to try them on in person?  No worries.  Check this and many other great products out online.
