Western Boot Reviews:

Looking for a new pair of western boots? Perhaps you want to bring out that 'cowgirl' in you next time you go out. Some people refer to them as cowboy boots, but anyone with a sense of style calls them western boots. With the right outfit, a pair of western boots can really stand out. You don't have to go to a country bar in order to wear your stylish western boots out on the town. The rugged leather and pointed toe are two trademarks found in almost all western cowboy boots. For the ladies, they have designed heights from your ankle to your knee. Want to wear them with jeans? How about with a cute skirt? Picking the right pair of boots can be tough given all the variations that are offered. Prices typically range from $100 to $300. Some custom design boots sell for $500+. We compared prices between large western footwear stores and online etailers. The online shops carry a larger inventory and usually have prices that are the same or less. The one drawback with shopping online is sizing and being able to make sure the fit is just right. Some online stores will allow you to order shoes and return the ones you don't want without a fee.

Choosing a Western Boot - The first thing you want to know are the various parts of the boot so you can understand the descriptions. The 'pull strap' is located near the top of the boot and is good for pulling up the boot. The heel cap on classic cowboy boots is about 1 1/2 inches high and the natural leather soles are great for things like line dancing. The shaft is the part around your leg and the vamp is the section over your foot. Sometimes the shaft will have a different color leather compared to the vamp. Watch for boots not made of genuine leather. The cheaper composite materials or even vinyl will not hold up. The toe shape is another feature to consider given there are quite a few options - R Toe, Square Toe, U/W toe, J Toe, and D Toe. You are probably used to seeing the narrow, pointed toe that is very common on cowboy boots. The Western boot styles have evolved and now designers have added slight variations to add uniqueness and individuality to the boots. Top brands include Tony Lama, Justin Boots, Roper, Dan Post, Stetson and Ariat. You want a snug fit, but keep in mind, getting off boots can be a problem for some. There are many times that I need my roommate to help me remove the boot since I can't seem to get enough leverage to get the darn thing off. Browse the best selling Western cowboy boots here.
