To promote the Western Boot Factory that it stood in front of.
The Western Boot Factory is no more but the boot still exists. The above picture
shows what it looks like in 2004. Here is what it looked like before:
It cost the original owner, Dan Semaka, about $200,000.
Other tidbits include a secret door which leads to a ladder that goes to the top. Tanya Tucker has had her picture taken with the boot.
There are plans to add to the height (another 6 metres). This is expected to cost about $35,000.
