Mom and Pop’s Cowboy Boots

It’s funny really.  People assume that I’m a cowgirl because my husband is a cowboy but I assure you that’s not the case at all.  However, I do wear boots to lots of places but not the fancy, dressy boots…I wear boots that are comfortable.  So, since I’m asked on many occasions what kind of boots I wear, I thought I’d share a picture of them with you, along with my husband’s boots.

Mine are Laredo…I don’t normally like Laredo but these felt good on the feet at the time I bought them.  If I could recommend a boot, it would be Ariat.  They are THE most comfortable, durable boot ever.  When I worked at Dandy’s Western Wear, I was quite the salesWOman…in fact, a man who only wore Tony Lama his whole life, switched to the pair of Ariats I showed him.  I MADE him try them on and he instantly fell in love.  He even went back a few months later to say hey and let me know he loved the boots.

Anyways, here are my boots…..

And here are my man’s cowboy boots.  He doesn’t wear store bought cowboy boots…he gets them handmade like most real cowboys.  They were made by Henry Jennings out of Stinnet, TX.  I like the green but my favorite pair he had were a pair of yellow tops when we first met.  I loved those boots.  It’s about time for a new pair of boots as you can see.  A GOOD pair of handmade cowboy boots cost on average, about $550.

    Okay, now I’m in love with his boots!
    But I mean, seriously, if it’s what you do for a living? Of course you have the right kind of boots. It would be like a racer car driver opting for a car off the showroom floor otherwise!

    Those are gorgeous boots (both of them!)

    I’m realizing that I have a pair of new-in-the-box boots that I’ve never worn b/c my old ones are so comfy and broken in. And need to be scrapped. And the ones in the box need to get broken in.
    Maybe I need to take the kidlet riding this summer! :)

    Great boots! Hubby and I go back and forth with boots. My favorite are my red python boots (I even wore them at my wedding reception), and hubby has a pair of ostrich boots I got him the first year we were married that he loves. Boots can be expensive, but they can last for SO long.
