    I'm a sucker for suede rough-out, that one in the middle looks great.

    And does that one to its' right have a purple top? More pictures of that one. Make?



    I thought there had to be more Cowboy Boot people on the forum.

    Come out of the darkness and into the light.






    Blue shaft, made by Lucchese. I'll post better pictures of that pair soon.

    Out of town right now. But should hopefully have some pics later in the month.

    Btw, your collection of boots are gorgeous. Very exotic and well-kept. Mine are very simple Dan Posts and Tony Lamas in calf with shades like Sienna Brown and Mahogany Tan.




    That's how everybody starts, my first Big Boy Boots were Nocona in calf with lizard wingtip bought at a discount outlet about 40 (YIKES!!) years ago.


    And this is a very vintage Justin in calf, a so called cock-roach killer boot, even though even sharper pointed toes are/were made.

    A custom 1960's vintage riding boot by Lucchese when they were only turning out 8-10 pairs of boots per week. Made in San Antonio.

    20" tall, probably close to a size 11.... don't ride, too short, foot too small......so these are a display boot for me. (man, I love rationalizing buying boots!!)


    High quality calf vamp and top.

    My meager contribution. This is my first pair of boots. Purchased in 1986, Justin elephant.

    Swan Song, I'm stealing your pose for my pics.

    My Billy Reid ropers when they were new. They've broken in amazingly over the last 2 years.

    I've had a pair of brown and tan cowboy boots since the late 70's that I just got rid of. I wore them around in the 70's but then only for western riding. I don't find them all that comfortable, but they are practical for riding.

    That has a great patina.

    I would not give up on Cowboy/Western Boots just yet, if they were a stock boot, the last probably did not suit your foot. Try a Lucchese "Classic" stock boot if funds are low, and a custom fit (preowned or new) to really get an idea of the comfort in a well made boot.

    Heel height and design also plays a part if you walk more than ride(like me).

    Stewart Boots out of Arizona makes a very comfortable boot of the highest grade of leather and they can be had a liitle less than Lucchese.

    How about a Lucchese Classic in snake?

    In Gila Monster Red and Black, of course.


    These are when my mood is feisty, or my "Stand Back When You See Me Coming" boots.
