I bought a pair of Justin boots in a little boutique shop next to Twitty City in Hendersonville in 1988. Still have them! They're 10D's, style #8549 black, and have a registration number stamped on the inside lining: 25980. Several months after buying them ($299 on sale) I had relatives visiting from Reno. I took them to a matinee show at the Opry House headlined by Randy Travis, and of course wore my new boots. Well, Roy Acuff was hosting, and he brought out Randy almost immediately. Before he sang the first note, he apologized in advance for any sour notes, because he had to borrow someone's shoes backstage, and they were a size too small. It's not exactly my character, but I impulsively pulled off one of my boots, stood up from my second row seat and held it high for him to see. He walked over to the front edge of the stage, said, "Let me see it," and then asked for the other one. All he said was, "Is this leather?" and cracked that patented smile when I replied, "Elephant." Thanks to Justin Boots, he never missed a note.
My Justin Boots have been with me since I was diagnosed with scoliosis. The Gypsy style boots have kept me from having pain everyday because I work on concrete floors at a local home improvement store. I bought a new pair in December for Christmas and they are taking a beating. That beating though keeps me from having to visit doctors constantly for chiropractic care. Thanks Justin for making boots that have such great orthopedic support!!
Years ago my daughter was told she would be in a wheel chair but the Shriners Hospital in Salt Lake City had a different opinion.They did surgery and gave us hope it was a long journey. When my daughter was ready to give up a doctor wrote a perscicption for a pair of cowboy boots. Needless to say my daughter and all her friend wear gypsy boots thank you for making a super product. A very happy mom
I had my eye on a GORGEOUS pair of Justin Stampede's for the longest time, so naturally I was SO excited when I was the 2nd runner up winner to a $75.00 Bootbarn.com shopping spree! I just knew I was going to get my Justin's (my very FIRST pair of boots!)! Alas, the Stampede's I had my eye on just didn't fit quite right (12" shaft was a little too tall), so I decided on a pair of Justin Gypsy's (with the 11" shaft) and I couldn't be happier! Definitely the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever worn, I never want to take them off! Can't wait to get my next pair of Justin's!
I was such a skeptic about the bent rail with the square toe. I have always wore pointy toe every since I could walk. It's what my dad always wore. The salesman talked me into them. I'm so glad he did. I work 9hr shifts in them no pain in my toes like I use to get with other. I love them so much I'm looking at getting another pair. Thanks so much Justin for these boots also thanks to that salesman.
