Boot Repair

My Justin Mulehide boots were needing their 3rd set of soles and their 4th set of heels. I work them pretty hard as a butcher, farming, and just everyday wear (I wore them 18 hrs/day). The boot repair guy looked at me funny when I replied to why my boots were needin' fixed. He said "did you tear them up working on the farm?" "Or was it because of climbing over fences, or climbing on machinery?" I said "Nope, I tore the heel off Saturday at our family reunion playin' volleyball!" All he could say was,"Well, I'll be..."

TOUGH JUSTINS

I am a volunteer fire fighter in my local town. Several years ago we were at a Christmas parade in a local town. We were dispatched for a barn fire in our area. We jumped in our fire trucks and responded to the fire. When we arrived on scene, I jumped out of the ladder truck I was riding in, took my Justins off, and put on my fire gear. As were were getting ready to leave, I realized that the operator of the truck lowered the outriggers for the ladder truck onto my beloved Justins. Putting the entire weight of the apparatus onto my boots and pushing them into the dirt. I was able to dry them off, clean them up a little and wear them for many years after that. If that doesn't show how TOUGH your boots are, I don't know what does. Thanks for a GREAT product !!!

Me and this ol' Justin boot got a lot in common. We're both hard workers were big and made in America were both just a lil ruff on the outside and we dont care to get dirty always ready to kick something when needed. We're both thick skinned and given our age and usuage we may be a lil weak in the back from hard work . But on the inside were like no other we are soft and offer great support its from the way we were built and materials used and we have the will to do what ever is needed to get the job done...

I was looking for some good, comfortable boots that weren't too expensive, so I decided to ask a boot wearing professional, Mr. Casey James of Fort Worth, TX. Also known as @CaseyEJames (Casey Everett James) on twitter. I tweeted Mr. James: @CaseyEJames Question I would only trust you to answer- What's the best cowboy boots? I wanna get a pair, but don't know which brand is best And this is the answer I received: @pjwood67 well that's a super subjective question, but Justin's have always treated me well. They make a good boot So, I drove an hour to my nearest Justin dealer & proceeded to try on boots. He was right, they are the best boots! So comfortable and affordable and made in the USA. I bought my first pair on 11-11-11 and wore them to see Casey in concert 3 days later and thanked him for the advice. You should check out the new video on CMT for his first single, "Let's Don't Call It A Night," it's a great song! Thanks Casey James for turning me into a Justin girl! Love ya!

Boots that travelled the world

I first came to the USA in 2004, when I visited Van in Midway, UT. I was invited by his father, well known horse and cattle auctioneer Brent Kelly, to a trail around Deer Creek. He is a man of US tradition and lots of experience, who always wore Justin Tan Premium. While visiting Salt Lake city I didn't even think twice before buying myself the same boots. In these boots I not only worked every day on our ranch (www.kingsranch.estranky.cz), but I've also ridden on a horse throughout Yellowstone park. I also participated in shows as Futurity Reined cowhorse Reno 2008, Oklahoma Reining Futurity, Championships of Slovakia 2007 - 2009, Reining Futurity Italy 2007 - 2010. These boots I was and still do use on every horses related occasion that I can, they are not only comfortable in good weather but also hold up very well in all kinds of bad weather. The only thing that I was rebuked about by the referees was the the fact these boots do not have heels, but the comfort they give a man of my age (54) pays off. They were repaired only once, I had to replace the shoe sole. It's a pity here in Europe it is impossible to find them, Justin European resellers sell only the most recent models. Justin Boots Tan Premium model I would describe with a Slovak saying: For little money, lots of music. Best regards, Roman Nedoma Bratislava - Slovakia

Justins in a motorcycle crash
rate this story

I was leaving work early saturday morning when I had an 8pt buck jump out in front of my on my motorcycle. I hit the deer causing me to dump the bike going about 55mph and I slid for 150-200 feet. My jeans, motorcycle jacket and my justin boots were all torn up from road rash and gravel, but thanks to the construction of the boots they held up after that beating!!
