Cowboy boots - Page 4

post #46 of 413
Somethings are location, location, location. But then, some people have a personality that over rides that. Or, you can develope a personality that over rides location, location, location. Out West in Timber Country we see cowboy boots, but a cowboy hat is out of place. There are naturals that could wear a cowboy hat in the North West Timber Country. Now, if you lived East of the Cascade Mountians, you could easily were boots hat and all. In life we are expected to wear the clothes of the area and purpose and time, or be out of place. After all, Easterns look way out of place out West and it takes time for them to aquire the personality of the area to fit in, which includes wearing the right clothes. There is also the way you present you personality. So you can wear a bolo tie in NY City and people will look but it fits you and is just right some how and they will like it on you. Often the most outspoken against are the most insecure in what they are speaking against, so with clothing they wear what evereybody else is wearing too afriad to wear something esle different. If everybody was afriad to wear something different we'd all be wearing blankets like Moses.

True cowboy boots are made for sitting on a horse. They have high heels that are small where they touch the floor and the back is cut at a slant. Buy the real thing and not the many pretends. And, because of the high heels, make for sure they fit.

Is there a Reader's Digest version of this available?

That is the condensed version. You certainly don't want me to write a long version. The long version would need to be written by an expert, if it is going to be written at all.

When looking at city people and country people you will see the country people dress to the elements and city people dress to peer pressure. Two intirely different needs.

3) Any other brands I should look into, I don't like the square toe ones.

1) I would go against the tight jeans.
2) I thought all Lucchese boots were made in Texas but I could be wrong. I'd go with the Lucchese Classics but those can get a little expensive. A cheaper line is the Lucchese Cowboy or 1883 if the Classic is too expensive for your taste.
3) Other brands to look into are Blackjack, Justin, Larry Mahan, Nacona, Tony Lama

Don't know WTF I was thinking!

I too live in Texas, and often wear cowboy boots with suits with no problem.
But, and it is a huge BUT: most cowboy boots are inappropriate. The only boot style that is appropriate and does not look ridiculous in my mind is the "Roper" style (low heel and plain toe, see link). The best are Justin and Luccese:

The above, in black, goes perfect with a slim black suit. It is really not much different than any other non-western dress boot. Also, they are *extremely* comfortable.

Any of the other styles (fat heels, embroidery, etc.) I personally would never wear, in spite of my love for boots.

Lucchese Classics are nice boots, I think a lot of people would be surprised at how comfortable a well fitted pair of boots are.

I think they have their place, but I prefer the heavier looking boots, like these:





I picked up the taste for them when I lived in Texas, and every once in a while, the urge strikes me to wear them. Helps that I live in the south I guess.

If they did not fit properly, don't blame the boot style.

Nope, they're just comfortable.

I rather like the look of them with suits, and I'm referring to the more flamboyant styles with the high canted heels. The heel, in my judicious opinion, affords the silhouette a bit of swagger.

+1, I was very surprised.

Currently they are the only pair of footwear I can tolerate without Dr Scholl's heel cups since I've been struck by this damn
