    Western Boots

    I have always been against getting a pair of western boots, but as I get older I am more prone to change. My son is crazy over cowboy boots and he loves going to his grandpa's farm to "be a hard working guy".

    Now I find myself needing a pair of boots. I am spending some time in Texas, so I figured I might as well break down and get some.

    Anyone have any recommendations as to which boots are the best/most comfortable?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as, cowboy boots are a whole new thing to me.

    I have owned several pairs over the years and the only pair that I found comfortable is Tony Lama's. They can be pricey but in my mind are worth it. The key with any boot though is to make sure you fit them because if they don't fit well, you will be miserable. When I bought my last pair, the guy fitting me spent a lot of time to make sure I had the right ones.

    Another thing that is good to get put on them right away are some heel scuff guards. They really add to the life of your boot. I don't bother with the toe ones though.

    +1 on Tony Lama. I prefer the style called ropers. Less fancy more utilitarian.

    I have a pair of oxblood Lucchese ropers that are great. However, my understanding is that they are even more hideously expensive now than when I bought them.

    My dad was a VP for a construction company and always wore ropers out on the construction sites and really liked them - He always wore either Tony Lama or Ariat's ropers. If you are looking for more of a functional work boot, I would go that route.

    +1 on tony lamas , even though I am a Nocona fan i would definitely go with ropers also, as I get older high heeled boots don't work so well on these ankles and knees

    A.A.Callisters in salt lake city or try www.thesportsmansguide.com they have hundreds of boots at great prices and a great return policy.

    I've been wearing boots since I was about 6 years old so that is a lot of time. At the moment I have a couple of pairs of Boulet style boots that I got from here http://www.wwmerc.com/cgi-bin/Catego...100&type=store They are comfortable and have held up well. I have a Shooters boots as well as the Stove pipe one in chocolate the other black.

    I've also had modern style cowboy type boots but nothing as comfortable as these period. The price is also fairly good compared to modern cowboy boots that often go for much more but have toe styles my feet can't handle. They do have a two inch heal suitable for walking or riding.

    I've had Texas Brand, Tony Lamas, Puma etc actually had 14 different boots at one time.

    for style here in Texas, its Lucchese. Teenagers and working guys wear Justin and Nocona.

    See, this is why you have to try them. It depends on your feet. For me Tony Lamas are the most uncomfortable boots made. Only Dan Post and Justin...I have a dozen pair in my closet. Only two pair of Lucchese, and they're great...but can't afford them any more on S.S. ;-) Not that it matters since I have enough boots to last me til I'm dead. <g>
