After meeting a bootmaker to the stars in a local club, he started an apprenticeship working on boots for the most well-known entertainers in the country music world. John followed his passion west and founded Woodward Boots in San Diego, California in 1992.

After opening retail stores in La Jolla and the Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego, California, John moved his studio to the Rocky Mountains outside of Boulder, Colorado, where he lives today with his wife Angie and trusted companion Rocky (a golden retriever).

An authentic piece of John’s work will bear his handwritten signature and stamp.
