A cowboy boot performance? Will there be spurs? STIRRUPS?!?!

Bet on it. Of course I do ride horses but stirrups and spurs are optional equipment. I find bareback riding with a bitless bridle to be much more challenging. One thing for sure though. I would never ever ride a saddled horse wearing anything but cowboy boots. Anyone who rides knows why but for those who don't you don't want to snag a heel in a stirrup if you get tossed off.

So taking cowboy boots off is tough?

You aint doing it right if that's the case.

With all due respect, that's simply not true. In fact, it is entirely false. All you need is a boot jack.

Like I'm carrying a boot jack to the bar with me, and/or have one handy when I'm back at Chelsea Clinton's apartment at the end of the evening. Come on.

Well, the immediate question is why you would want to take your boots off at a bar?

And as far as Chelsea's apartment...whoever she is...there are boot jacks that will fit in your back pocket.

Take my word for it...boots are not hard to get off. And RTW boots are a lot easier to get off than bespoke boots (depending on the maker and where they were made.

I'm too lazy to dig up the image from Google that best characterizes my response, and which I'd otherwise like to insert as my wordless reply. But I'll spare you the dramatic tension, and just spoil it right now. It's Captain Picard, with his face resting squarely in the palm of his hand.

Those boots could be one of the most beautiful pair i have ever seen. I love your collection it really is a work of art. You certainly earned my respect for your apprectiation for western foot wear.

Boot jacks just to remove your boots?

I've never used one in my 26 years of wearing cowboy boots. (Don't even know if I would recognize one.) Learn something new every day.

Have you ever had a pair of custom/bespoke boots?

Along the Mexico/Texas border...and to some extent throughout the SW where the border influence is strong...boots are made wide in the throat.

But in the Northern tier states--Colorado, up through Wyoming and Montana, boots are made such that it takes an effort to get them on and a boot jack or a willing helper (preferably female) to get them off. Since a boot has no laces for adjustment, the narrower throated boot fits better.

I make boots in the Northern style...my teacher learned at the knee of a famous bootmaker whose name was Blucher (I can't think of the first name, it may have just been initials) in the early 20th century.

FWIW, boot jacks predate the heyday of Western/cowboy boots.

Born and raised in TX, I've always had at least one pair of boots in my closet.

 

Right now it's cognac Luccheses and black goatskin Justin Ropers.

I have in my possesion four boots, two Tony Lamas, one pair of Justins and one pair of lucchese boots. skins and hides range from Lizard, Caiman, Bull, Ostrich leg/knee(not sure which one though). I want to get ahold of some Anteater, African Bull frog, Vintage Horned Back Lizard. Have not seen too many Anteater pics so please post if you have any dinosaurs like the ones I've mentioned thanks!
