The Crash
rate this story

Back in 1996 I was being the designated driver and we were out seeing a local band that i was good friends with. We were leaving just after the band was done and I was walking across the road back to the car when I was hit by a young lady.
The first thought that went thru my head was" Shit this is gonna hurt" after i bounced of off her windshield and totaled her front end the next thought(as I am doing cartwheels side ways in the air)dam the stars are pretty tonight.
After the meat wagon arrived they were going to cut my Justin lace up work boots off and i told them if they cut anything they are to cut the laces not the leather.They did did as I told them too,and i have to say i was very thankful for that as when i got to the ER and the doc did my injury report he told me that if it had not been for the steel toes in my boots there was a good chance that i would have been missing 2 or 3 toes on my left foot, Thank you Justin Boots for making such a high quality boots and i am forever in debt to you and i still continue to wear your lace up ropers to this day.Once again Thank You.

The Time They Saved My Life

The time my boots saved my life was one day when my truck broke down and I had to walk 13 miles back to the ranch to get somebody to come help me when it started raining it started getting muddy when my sole fell off but still held together.

I've Walked A Million Miles

I have had my Justins since I was 10, my gramma bought them for me in Texas. She didn't give a whole lot for them at that yardsale. These have been the best boots I've ever wore. I have taken these to the cobbler more times than my kids have had birthdays. The last time I went he said that was the last time he would be able to put new soles on them, and that he patched them so my toes wouldn't pop out. I challenged the man, told him he was crazy, I will never let these boots go. Justin doesn't carry these boots anymore and I don't plan on getting rid of them. I have broke up with a few boyfriends who said, "it's me or the boots" well i am sure you can guess who was out on the curb. I am now 21 and still sport these boots, I have went through and bought others, I tried Ariats and Luchesses and other brands but nothing has met the comfort and quality of the boots on my feet right now. I love these boots and if it comes down to and and that old man won't cobble my shoe, I guess you know where you'll see me....that's right, I'll be in line at the TSC nabbing a roll of duct tape. These boots have walked more miles than most boots can dream about. I love my Justins, and I wish I could find another pair that fit like these do. Everytime I go to the store the first place I run is to the boot section, hoping that one day I will find a pair that come close the comfort of these. They may not be pretty but gosh darnit, I love them to pieces. Keep up the good work guys, keep making boots how they should be. Last for years and unbeatable comfort.

My Lost Boot
rate this story

I was 18 and bought my first pair of Justin boots with hard earned money from tending bar and tips. (before I became a nurse) That was 35 years ago. It was so traumatic, I almost didn't survive it.

A bunch of us we're coon hunting in Northwest Texas and yes I had my prized boots on. I didn't know I would be out in the very dark canyons and brush. But, the dogs we're baying and I just had to get in there. I started out full speed in my pretty boots across some kind of pasture. I didn't know exactly since the spotlights we're way ahead of me and then the unthinkable happened. I hit a wire at my neck and it knocked me clean out of my boots. It hurt but not near as bad as me losing one of my prized boots. I found the left one but never did find the right one. I cried all the way home.

I'll have to close now, the memory is just too painfull. The moral of the story. Don't go hunting in your new pretty Justins and if you do take a flashlight!

The First Pair I Ever Tried On
rate this story

I was in Salt Lake City at the time and I was in a ma and pa retail store that sold western wear and tack. I was there to buy a hat when I saw the George Strait line of boots. I knew I didn't have the money at the time to buy them. But I thought I would try them on any way. I must tell you. They fit me like a glove. I loved how they felt on my foot, and I loved the style. Ever since then, I have been trying to get my hands on a pair of Justin Boots. I will some day. I have been a long time fan of Justin Boots. Thank you Justin Boots for making a top notch product.

I recieved my new Bay Apache boots Thursday Febuary 10 2011.I then wore them around the house for a few hours,and was amazed with the comfort of a steel toed boot.The next day I took a chance and wore them to work.I could not believe how great they felt all day long.As union elctrician I am on my feet,up and down ladders all day.

I hav ebeen a Red Wing man for 20 years,but never again.I was already turned off by the China products,and the fact the comfort of there boots has slipped.I am now a Justin man,and will promote your boots to my friends.

Heirlooms are the best to pass on!!
rate this story

When my father was stationed at Altus AFB in 1968 he bought a pair of Justin's for $350 from what he told me. Well a few years ago he was cleaning out his closet and handed these boots to me. These boots are still in amazing shape and are the best boots I have ever owned hand down. I was born in 1986 and these boots are older than I am and when I get back from Iraq I plan on having them resoled for the first time. I plan on keeping these boots for a long long time and make sure they are taken care of. Justin Boots are the best quality boot and I would wear no other.
