Teagan

Teagan fell in love with bootblacking at a young age, doing her shoes before church. Although these days her skills are being put to more salacious uses, she still identifies as a spiritual bootblack. For her, the act of bootblacking harkens back to the foot-washing ritual. She is honored to provide a humble service to her community.. She views herself as a healer, seeking to clean both the leather and it’s owner during their time in her stand.

Teagan was International Ms Bootblack 2018, and the 20th person to hold that title. She is also Southwest Bootblack 2017 and Southern California Bootblack 2016. She is based in Oakland, CA. During her title years she has invited our community to “Take Refuge” in the capable hands of our bootblacks. Teagan is an individual director for the Bay Area Leather Alliance Board. She’s the executive producer of the San Francisco Bootblack Contest.
