My son is now 21. However, he was born prematurely and I had an emergency C-section. His dad (now my ex) mentioned that we had only chosen a first name, Cole. What were we going to do about a middle name? He was sitting with his knee bent, with his ankle resting on his other knee (like guys do so much). He looked down at his boot and said "How about Justin?" I said "Write it down." Therefore, my son was named for your boot!! He got down to 3 lb. 5 oz. but he's fully grown now, and still wearing Justins. I am, too! I bought new ones on a trip to Mississippi last weekend.
This is the fourth time I have had my boots re-soled or maybe that should be re-souled cause they are truly a part of me. My name is Don "Buck P" Creacy, Working America's Storyteller. If you see me on the platform spinning yarns. Betcha a hundred dollars I have one of me two pairs of Justin Boots, black, Model/Style# 8565, registration # 36531 and the other pair is Elk Skin, Model/Style # 1322, registration # 24537 - 0. By now I don't even know how old they are, but they still fit like new and like old friends at the coffee shop. I am going to buy some new ones... if I ever wear these out.
Just thought you'd like to know.

I want to introduce myself. My name is Austin Jensen. I am 15 years old and in the 9th grade. I have two dreams for my life, one is to serve our country as a leader in the Army, and the other is to make it to PBR. I am a member of the NC High School Rodeo Association as a Bull Rider. My boot story is that my mom is a single mom of 4, working full time and could not afford new boots for me. So her dad gave me his 20+ year old Ostrich skin Justin boots. They still look great! I have managed to rip the heel off twice while riding bulls. but somehow mom keeps getting the fixed! I wonder how long these boots will last me.
I have a pair that I got when I was 18years old. I am now 42 and still wear them. They were the grey ones, and thankfully they are grey as they are being held together by duct tape!! They have the original sole (with holes in them) They are the most comfortable boots I have ever had. But they are so homely I don't wear them to town!! LOL
I live on disablity and had the opportunity to do some volunteeer work with kids at a ranch. I had no money and had no boots which was needed. A friend of mne was a barn sale and saw these Justin Boots and asked if she could have someone try them and if they fit shw apparently was going toget them for me. So one day she showed up with old but to me beautiful Justin boots and said try them on and they fit like they were made for me. The people at the barn totally blessed me and told my friend she could have them for free sice they were for me. That was back in 2008 and worn and all they are still going. So I am the second owner and on the second new insoles but I love them. I wouldlove to have anew pair but cannot afford to buy a new pair but I have been blessed with these.
I was still upset that I couldnt find one of my Justin Ropers I got six years ago when I walked into a Cavenders Boots Store with my fiance and my parents, we were actually shopping for my dad. I came across the Justin Gypsys and I fell in love. I really wanted a pair. Well I guess my whole family realized it and well my fiance bought me the pair of boots I really wanted. I almost began to cry in the middle of the store because of it. I have hardly ever got anything special like this. Specially for Mothers Day. My boots stay on my feet or they are in the box with everything it came with just like when I got them. They are really the best boots ever!!! Thank you Justin Boot Company for making my boots and being part of the BEST MOTHERS DAY EVER!!
I got my Lace-Up Ropers for my 10th birthday, 14 years ago. They have been my favorite pair of boots ever! I have worn them trail riding, at lessons, at shows, for class, and as everyday shoes. So, imagine my dismay when this past fall, I put them in my boot jack, and the sole pulled completely off! At that horrible moment, I realized my beloved boots needed to be retired. I wrapped them up and stored them in closet for safe keeping. At Christmas, my husband handed me a very familiar looking package; he had had the original soles put back on! They are now back as my "go-to" shoes, and are just as loved as ever!
bought my justin laceup ropers 20 years ago, have had new soles put on 3 times and finaly the tops have worn out, i loved these boots and you can't find them anymore. sure do wished you guys still made them in the youth size 5.......there is nothing like em!!!!!
best boots ever!!!!
