My step brother had been trying to talk me into buying some Justin boots for a while (he hated my Ariats) so I decided to look on the website to see if any interested me. I instantly fell in love with the Bent Rail collection and I knew I had to have some. Being the true country girl I am, I couldn't resist square toed boots :) For Christmas I asked for the Tan Puma Cowhide boots, and on Christmas Day I found them under the tree. I LOVE them, but I'm keeping my Ariats to do the dirty work. My new boots are so comfortable! I'm so glad I got me some Justin boots! ?

New Roper Workboots
rate this story

I have worn combat boots for the last 32 years. As I am getting ready to retire from the Army I told my wife I wanted some Ropers but they had to be made in N. America. We found a pair of Copper Caprice, Style 762, size 12, which then found their way under the Christmas Tree. They fit great! I love the feel. And they are made in the US! Well done!

New boots
rate this story

I haven't bought a pair of boots in over 15 years. So, yearning for a new pair, I went to the local western wear store here in cow town. I put on some Justin boots and walked out the store, with very little breaking them in they are like wearing a tennis shoe, I plan to buy another pair (lace up) to wear to work, I'm a chef and that should tell you something! I stay on my feet for long periods of time. Thanks

The first real pair of boots (I'd had a pair as a kid, but I probably didn't wear them long..) I purchased for myself when I had just turned 18. I got a pair of Justin Bent Rails from the Justin Discount Boots outlet in Justin, TX about 20 min from my home in Argyle. My friends came with me to help pick out a pair, we were going to go to Billy Bob's that weekend to go dancing. It took me a little while to decide on a pair (they were all so awesome), but I loved the ones I ended up with. That weekend we saw Clay Walker, a concert that I will always remember. This was my very first introduction to country dancing. I fell in love. That group of friends only went out to Billy Bob's once a month though, so I didn't really do much dancing (or boot wearing for that matter) until April 1, 2011. I remember the day because it was opening day of the Texas Rangers Season, I watched the game with some friends, and met a girl at the party. She invited me to go dancing that night. I was introduced to a huge group of friends who are AMAZING dancers and I am now very grateful to call them all my great friends. Ever since that day, I've gone VERY few weeks without going dancing at least one night, sometimes 2 or 3 or even 4 nights in a week. All in my first ever pair of Justin's. Along the way I've brought a number of friends to the Justin store to help them pick out boots. It's gotten to the point where the ladies who work there recognize me. I still wear those boots all the time. They now have holes in the soles and the heels are worn down. There are scuff marks in the shap of circles in the sole from all the spinning. I'm going to get them resoled next week. Tomorrow though, I'm headed back to the Justin store to get another pair! No matter how much people try to sell me on other boots, I'm a Justin fan for life!

6 year waiting on justin boots
rate this story

Ive been wanting Justin Gypsy boots since I can remember. I am now 32, and can gladly say when I take off the boots to put my sneakers on, I can feel the difference. You never want to take the boot off so its very comfortable. This year Dec. 2011, I got my brown and pink stitch Gypsy Justin boots for xmas, and I was so excited to wear them. I wore them sorting brick outside, so they got broken in. I do alot of animal work outside, project work, and these are just perfect. Thanks justin boots. I love my new xmas present!

I miss my ropers!
rate this story

I got my first pair of Justin Ropers in the '80s. I had a navy blue, brown, and black. They were the most comfortable boots I ever owned and the only ones. I lived in Castroville, TX and wore them to school (alot) just like all the other country/small town kids. I kept them all through college and finally they disappeared after I got married. I say disappeared b/c I moved to Austin leaving them in my mom's closet never to be seen again. Now my daughter is 11 and she is wanting her first pair of boots. We live in Kyle, TX now and it is just like Castroville, small and full of cowboys. I am looking to get her a pair of Justin Ropers but I am wanting some for myself too! How I miss my ropers but this mama, is gonna keep Justin Ropers in the family!!

Real Big Boy Boots !

My Boyfriend is a Powerlifter- you know one of those huge fellas on ESPN that tie a chain to a desil rig & pull it down the street. So buying anything for this man is nearly impossible... I'm from the South & have known about Justin Boots since from when I was a kid & so I took a shot in the dark last Christmas & got him the Tan Gaucho Work boot with all the bells & whistles. I was cautiously optimistic as he pulled them up on his size 11 wide foot- And to my surprise they fit him like a glove! Now even more of a surprise, he called me from work the next afternoon only to let me know how darn comfortable his feet have been all day! Now feet that carry around a 340lb man are ever anything but comfortable... So now that was last Christmas & he is still wearing those boots almost every single day (he has never had a boot last him more then 6-7mo before). What am I getting him this year for Christmas you ask?.... You Guessed it- A new Pair of Justin Boots for this Big Big Boy! Thank you Justin for making an Already Rockin' Girlfriend Rock just a little more! Merry Christmas Everyone!

Girl gone country!

Well let me start by saying that I am probably a closet country girl....I had a pair of boots back in the 80's and I loved them and always wanted another pair...fast forward to 2011 a friend of mine invited our family to watch him bull ride in a local arena, this seemed to be the perfect opportunity to seek out my new pair of boots. I asked my facebook friends where do go for a nice pair of boots and received many suggestions, but the main one was get Justin boots. I called my daughter and our road trip adventure was on to find our boots. We ended up driving up to the Irish Hills in Michigan from Ohio for our boots and later that day drove to Van Wert, Ohio to the Hat Creek Arena to watch our friend ride the bull. My boots are so comfortable and now I want a pair for every day of the week! I think I have found my calling and would love to have a shop to sell boots...sounds crazy, but it would be so cool....that is truly who I am a jeans and boots girl!

I know that all you have to do to check the comfort of your work boot is to wear them all day, every day. I am a lineman and have many boots. The problem is if you can climb in them they take the hide off of your toes when you walk in them. On the other hand if they are comfortable they kill your arches when your in your climbing hooks. I will spend good money for good boots. I have been wearing this pair for three and a half years. Two soles and many a rainy, sleet filled night later I am now looking for another set. I have checked out these boots from standing in water and snow for hours on end, to fending off a biting dog. I have stepped in holes, and hung off of poles in many awkward positions and twisted my ankle in many positions and these boots have given me good support. I know that like my other tools, these boots are quality and I don't have to worry about my boots when I go to work. I also wear them on my days off. Thank you for your quality boots.
