Cowboy boots - Page 25
Styleforum Top Picks
I know this topic has been approached before, but I'd like to know how you guys feel about cowboy boots. They seem to be coming back in style, with lots of big name celebs wearing them. The Backstreet Boys wear them often, and not a night goes by on the "E. Entertainment News" when you don't see Steve Kmetko wearing them. They're looking really sharp of late, with super pointed toes, and radically underslung heels. Â I think they make a cool fashion statement. Anyone out there a cowboy boot fan? Would like to hear your opinions.
I wear them everyday after I get off work at home. I'll post a pic of my Dan Post boots (favorites) I bought in Texas about ten years ago when I get a chance. They've been resoled and re-heeled. I finally put some shoe shine on them last night.
I have a pair of vintage Tony Lama Elephant boots. At first I diden't think I would feel comfortable in them, but after I wore them a little I found I loved them so much I rocked them to my graduation. I love my old boots, I'm going to try to get some alligator boots next.
The first pair are vintage Justin boots in Cognac Sea Turtle. Supple well made boot. Very happy with em!
Second pair are vintage Dan Post American Alligators. I think they are a bias belly cut, but I could be wrong.
The third pair I just bought and am VERY happy with. A pair of Panhandle Slim vintage hippo hide in mud brown! So far very comfortable and durable. Bought em thinking they were Rhino hide but got this instead. Which is fine by me! I love Exotics!
One question to people who have had or have hippo boots! How do you clean hippo hide? Any tricks or tips are welcome thanks!
