    I've been looking for a boot similar to the Roper style boots that Frye offered in the 70's and 80's :
    it should have a round toe, flat heel, not taller than a 6" shaft and be leather-lined ... I've only
    found some boots by Justin that are somewhat similar but not quite the real McCoy. Maybe someone knowledgeable on this forum can point me in the right direction ? I've attached some photos from the www to illustrate my quest ! LotImg11756.jpg Roper 1.jpg Roper 2.jpg

    Have you looked at the current Frye Ropers? I think the cuurent owners are doing a decent job with some vitage Frye styles

    Hi Doc,
    thanks for the headsup - these are nice but too much "western" style for my taste.

    What about Lucchese? For my money, nobody's making anything even close.
