My name is Roe Hernandez and I love wearing Justin Roper boots. I am 51 years old and a breast cancer survivor. In November of 1998 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I didn't know what was in store for me in the future so I decided to splurge on myself. I always wanted some brown leather Justin Roper boots but they were too expensive so I bought me a pair and the rest is history. I still wear those boots, 3 resoles and have duct tape in boots so my feet can slide in. I now use them in my signature picture (picture attached, one of many). My friends and others that see my boot pictures, tell me to put them in a book, calendar or billboard for some company. Everywhere I go, everything I see are shown through my boots. I make people feel like they are in the picture experiencing everything I do. I only wear Justin Ropers, have 4 pairs and all are over 15 years old(blue, black, gray and brown). The reason I love your boots is because they feel like they are already broken in when you first put them on. Keep up the good work. The only thing I don't like is that you did away with the slick soles on the brown leather Roper boots and replaced with rubber soles. Can't boot scoot with rubber soles, that is why I have to keep resoling my brown boots. Love wearing my favorite brown boots. I am cancer free and because of the boots I bought in 1998, I have been enjoying traveling and taking pictures of boots and making others smile when they see where I have been. Thank you for that.
