    What brand, and why?

    What style, and what is it's function?

    What is a good material?

    How do I keep a knife in there?

    Your thoughts?

    3. And, finally....Lucchese.

    Expensive, but worth every penny. You may never need to buy another boot. All types of hides, from cow to kangaroo, ostrich to alligator, and rhino to elephant. Just look at their website.

    I have three pair, $300 already-distressed calf, kangaroo, and $800 full-quill ostrich....and I could sleep in all of them.

    I've owned just about all different brands...............Lucchese! Made right here in Texas!

    ....and the knife just slips in the side along your leg.

    Do I need special care for different hides?

    Jesus Christ....:eek:

    What kind of job paid enough for a cowboy to get boots that pricey?!??

    Damn. I am in the wrong line of work apparently... LOL

    Nice boots Lon, but I don't think Benning can afford to get a pair of those and then go step in bull shi*ite with them while herding. :p

    Quoted for truth, these have to be working boots.

    Still, Lon is on a ranch, and knows his stuff....

    I am not saying they aren't nice, they look like great boots. But god damn, a cowboy with that much money is going to buy a ranch of his own, not a new pair of boots for the same price. :eek:

    Damn good looking boots though.

    DO you want slip on boots or lace up boots?

    Tony Lama make a great pair of boots. My dad wore nothing but Tony's for a long time.

    I have a pair of Justin Lace up ropers that are rather tough. I haven't wore them in years because I don't dress hick anymore.

    Ariat International

    Here if you want a boot that will last you forever and a year White's are the way to go. There is nothing tougher than Whites. My dad had their line boots and I don't think he ever had to buy a second pair of them in 35 years. Whites are custom fitted to your foot measurements. These boots fit like a glove and last forever I am telling you.

    I've had several surgeries on my feet over the years, so one thing I won't scrimp on is shoes/boots. If your feet hurt, your whole body hurts.

    And I'd rather buy ONE pair of $500 boots to last me 15 years than five pairs of $100 boots to last the same amount of time......cuz yer puds will be hurtin' that whole time in the cheapies. ;)

    Damn Lon. BB may want to do some actual work, while wearing his boots and them dresser boots of yours ain't for stomping through the cow patties, horse apples, mud and dust. :rolleyes:

    Get a pair of Justin Roper boots, they range from $80 - $450 and you can get all them exotic skins if you want to dress up. If you want a damn comfortable, long wearing, all around work boots, you want some Ropers. ;)

    Yes, you do, but none of them take a LOT of care. I thought you said COWBOY boots, not work boots, so that's why I chimed in.

    Because it will clash with my Hugo Boss suit and tie. ;)

    Quoted for Truth. Having good footwear is a must. Nothing is worse than having cold, wet feet, and if they hurt on top of that, you are one miserable puppy.

    If I wore cowboy boots, I would probably get really good ones too. I was just comparing Benning's future cow puncher salary. :p

    Right, but NEVER order boots over the web. I can't wear Tony Lama or Justin or Ariat because my feet are shaped like flippers with no arch. With Lucchese or Anderson Bean that's a non-issue. You just have to try them all on before you know which one is for you.

    BB, what size you wear?

    Benning,

    If you want a pair of working boots might I suggest:

    Ariat International

    Ariats will stand up to ranch work and are extremely comfortable. They work well on foot or horse back and have a nice spur ledge for working cattle.

    I will support Lons suggestion of Lucchese as great boots, I don’t own a pair, but Linda has a pair of custom made that she loves. (PS, Lucchese is here in El Paso, so is Tony Lama).

    Lama’s aren’t bad but you have to try on a bunch of pairs to find a pair that really fits.

    Justin are nice, I wear Justin at work, but are not as good a quality as Lamas or Lucchese.
