Cherielle has been a part of the Leather community since finding out about in Dallas 16 yrs ago. She discovered bootblacking during SWLC in 2007 when she walked past the bootblack lounge and heard all the fun being had. She wanted to be a part of the fun, so reached out to an experienced bootblack in the area. Cherielle has discovered that her passion is helping others become a part of tight knit family known as bootblacks. She also has a deep desire to preserve the history of bootblacks, and in an effort to do that, she has published 'Tales from the Chair' and is currently working on Volume Two. ​

She has served her community as Southeast Community Bootblack in 2010 as well as International Community Bootblack 2010 and was honored as Pantheon of Leather Woman of the Year in 2011.  She loves boots, bootblacking, whips, and all things sharp and stingy.

Philadelphia Bootblack 2015 Wicked Jade

​Wicked Jade received her first bootblacking lesson from girl Amelia in 2012 and continues to learn under the mentorship of Cherielle from Arizona. She has served as Bootblack at many events on the East Coast, including Mr. & Ms. New Jersey Leather Contest, Pittsburgh Leather Pride, Philadelphia Leather Pride Night, the Lehigh Valley Girls of Leather events, TES Fest, The Floating World, and the Master/slave Conference.  In 2015 she competed for and received the Philadelphia Bootblack title.

Jade’s work philosophy focuses on taking care of not just the leather or footwear, but the whole person. The job isn’t really done unless the customer is shining from within.

Head of the Support Staff is Daddy Tyr has been in the Scene since the early 1980’s. She began her journey in New York City and on Long Island before moving on to Florida, Georgia, and Virginia. In March of 2012, she relocated to Phoenix AZ after sustaining life altering injuries in a car accident where the other driver was texting and driving. Before her injury, Tyr taught classes on SM skills and the M/s D/s Dynamics both nationally and internationally. Daddy Tyr splits her time between supporting her local community, wrangling the bootblacks in her life and annoying the love of her life, Cherielle. She has a fondness for cigars, rope, bootblacks, and the Leathermen and women in her community, not in any particular order.
