Those Hondos look great. As stated above if i could pull off the snip toe id be all over something like that....i want to try a Hondo..debating the 2645 rough out....it has a square toe, but nothing like the super wide types prevalent now.

Still may be a bit too wide for me anyway...

@kbuzz I’ve seen some nice looking Hondos around online for sure.

Try a pair of snip toes! I wasn’t sure about them myself at first, but I don’t think they are too hard to wear.

Does anyone have good fit pics of black cowboy boots being worn? Meaning, a photo of the full outfit?

Do black cowboy boots only go with black or grey pants? Or can they be worn in other contexts?

I have a pair of black Justin ropers that I wear with blue dress slacks or grey, just as I would wear black dress shoes. I also wear them with jeans. I grew up wearing cowboy boots nearly every day to school. I hardly wore anything else in high school in fact. I took some pics a while back of the black ropers along with the old pairs I wore in HS. They are all Justins. Mind you the grey and the tan pair are 40 years old. I don't wear them much if at all now and I wasn't great at boot care as a kid in HS. The noble beast in the pics is my faithful companion, a rescue hound who is purebred mutt. IMG_3354.jpgIMG_3352.jpgIMG_3345.jpgIMG_3340.jpgIMG_3336.jpg

I've noticed that black cowboy boots often work better when there's another black item in the outfit. So either black jeans (obviously) or a black top, such as a jacket.

For example, I think these work well.

Whereas I think the guys on the right of this photo look better with brown boots? Do people agree with that?

Another example: I think Mitt's outfit here would look better with brown boots

Is this a good rule of thumb? "You should have another black item in the outfit, either black pants or a black jacket?"

Hello there sir and I hope you are well. Cowboy boots are all I've ever worn due to how I was raised. I have found (just personal opinion) that my black pairs go best with jeans and/or grey worsted wool dress britches (I don't own a full suit in grey.) For some reason I think that's where they shine. I use my other boot colors for everything else.

My take with this clothing thing is wear what you like and makes you happy. If you think black cowboy boots look good with something, anything, then go for it!

I poked around and really don't have any photos. Only thing I remember is a photo I posted in the WAYWT casual thread a few months ago. Perhaps you may find it somewhat helpful. I also posted a photo of these black ostrich boots in this thread someplace if you look around. Anyways, hope this is a little helpful. Thanks for reading.

I kind of view wearing black boots same as I'd view wearing black shoes. Probably won't look great with a brown leather jacket or with very light colored pants, and I personally prefer wearing black boots with black jeans.
