Designer: Today the ROCKETBUSTER tradition is carried on by Marty's better half and "pardner" in the company Nevena Christi, another "Texas Transplant" but also a cowgal from way back. ROCKETBUSTER is world-renowned for its design and craftsmanship. Bosslady has taken on the mission of keeping this classic American tradition alive.
By encouraging young artists to be part of the team Nevena has created a path to the future. Today ROCKETBUSTER's internship program is thriving and Nevena jokes about wanting to teach a Sushi Chef to cut leather.....but seriously, everyone at the shop knows she's not kidding!
Rocketbuster still only makes about 400 pairs of boots a year with a wait time of 4 to 8 months. The customers are a growing family of celebrities, C.E.O.'s and eccentrics alike. Bosslady says, "the only thing our customers have in common is that none of them are boring and they all appreciate something unique that's been made by hand!"
