I am a person who loves cowboy boots and I could look at them for hours if I could. I would buy so many if I had the funds to purchase more. I wanted to share some of my recommendations I have about some great boots.
For Western rider's cowboy boots are a big deal and they are essential. I know I have searched many places for a boot that would fit me just right and fit the type of use I will be needing them for while riding and playing around in the barn. My first pair of boots broke apart and slowly started to deteriorate. Sometimes I had to many holes in them to use any longer, so it was time to get a new pair. I decided to get a pair of boots that was from the brand Ariat. This is a boot and clothing brand that is very well known in the horse world. I would strongly recommend this brand of boots to anyone. I have had them for over four years and they still are water proof and holding up very well. The bottom of the boots is rubber, so they are not going to wear out like my other boots did, which were a type of wood bottom. After getting these boots, I have fallen in love with this company.
When show season came around, I decided I needed to get a pair of show boots that would match my black chaps. I found a pair of Ariat black Fatbaby boots that worked out perfect for what I was looking for and what I needed. I have used these boots in several shows and they have not fallen apart or have barely any wear at all. These boots are expensive, so do not be surprised if you have to pay over a hundred dollars for a pair of these boots. They are an expensive purchase no matter where you go, but from experience this is the brand that I have gotten the most for my money. It's better to get a pair that will last you for years than a pair that will only last you a few months until they will need to be replaced. So, for anyone who is in search of a pair of western boots or wants to know a great brand to check out, please consider Ariat, because they will not disappoint you.
