Cowboy boots??? Not!!!
rate this story

I wore cowboy boots in my younger years but as I aged and my feet began to bother me I turned to Sketcher Walking Shoes. I lived in them and bought nothing but. A couple years ago my granddaughter made it to the World Youth Barrel Racing show in Jackson Miss. There is a Western / Boot store across from the grounds that we visited with the kids and my granddaughter was looking at boots to buy. I hadn't wore cowboy boots in so many years it scared me to even try on a pair but because everyone else was doing it, I did. When I tried on a pair of Coffee Westerner Waterproof boots I didn't want to take them off, they were like walking in house slippers. They are the only thing I can wear all day around the farm and not have my feet screaming at the end of the day. I paid $129 for the boots, something I thought I would never do but it was worth it and they are truly waterproof. I've walked out in the pasture grass wet with dew and my feet stay just as dry as if I had rubber boots on. These boots are truly amazing and have made a believer out of me. I won't wear nothing but...do you make the same thing in dress shoes for work??? Thanks Justin for bringing me back to the "western world".

24/7 Boots
rate this story

I work a busy 24 hour schedule. I'm a truck driver, towns machine, and rancher. I wear my boots non-stop. I can walk TO HELL AND BACK IN THESE GOOD LOOKING BOOTS ANY DAY OF THE WEEK except Tuesday, I'm going to the rodeo that day. There comfortable to wear all day and night. One day at the rodeo my 450 pound bull named widow maker stepped on my boot and if it wasn't for your steel toe boots I would have lost my big toe. I had these boots for 31/2 yrs and there still going strong. When I first put them on it was like I was walking in a cloud. There the only boots I'll wear and keep buying thank you for making good long lasting boots and they also look good with my wranglers too. The stampede collection is awesome

These Boots Are Made for Walking!

How do you let go of the best pair of boots that you have ever worn? Not easily. But today I retired the best pair of boots that I have ever walked in and oh if they could talk; I wonder what memories they would share. Purchased in 2002, during my career as a Soldier and stationed in Germany, these boots have been in Rodeo Arenas throughout Germany; helped me put my son on his first calf; walked through the war torn country of Kosovo and have been in the sands of Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar. My Justin's have helped me to clear the land that my horses now graze and protected my feet while breaking and training my horses. They have seen so many barrel races and held me solid in and out of the saddle. Last night my Justin's ran their last barrel race. Today I will hold their memory in a picture that can tell a million words and remember how they have made me proud to be a Cowgirl and a Soldier.

As you get older and begin reflecting on your life, you realize that you can count friends you can depend on, a friend that has never failed you, one that has always stood with you and has never let you down, on one hand. Or in this case, two feet. Justin Elephant skin boots, 25 years old. A true friend.

1st pair ever

Most folks would consider me a city slicker, because I grew up in city and urban enviroments most of my life. My family roots however come from rural northern woods of northern Michigan, where we hunt, fish, cut firewood, haul stumps, trees, and pretty much love the clean open sky of cool Michigan nights. We leave the farming to the downstaters. Any how I bought my 1st pair of Justin's last November of 2010 because some farm boy friends in college had some. I'd always had cowboy boots, but nothing fancy like Justin. Because money is tight I saved a little at a time. That day when I walked into my local retailer and pulled my size off the shelf and spent a little extra and bought a Justin by Milano hat too, and came home with them, was just like Christmas. I wear them literally every day except at work where I wear my Justin workboots steel toes, and when I'm coaching the sport I coach after work. My desire it to move back to rural Michigan after I retire, and buy a truck, and 5th wheel and travel the country working volunteer work at camps, and any other places that need a handy man to get projects done. You bet I'll be wearing Justins every day. Justin was generous enough to honor me as fan of the month on their Facebook page. I've enjoyed reading the Standard of the West: History of Justin Boots. Good book. Makes me appreciate my boots even more.
