Just wanted to let y'all know I luv my Justin Boots. April 2011 the F5 tornado took our home and pretty much everything but someone managed to find my boots scattered in our pasture matched them up and brought them to me. Since all I had to wear was a pair of flip flops I was so excited. I put on the wet muddy boots and am still wearing them to this day. They are tornado proof!
I own a few pairs of Justin boots and I wore out a few pairs too. It takes a while but it can be done. These are like old friends and they have taken me many places. I have on pair that I wear more than the others and these have been with me close to 4 years. They have been on tour with me for almost 2 years and they refuse to die. I need to see about getting these re souled. Yes they have soul. Just 2 little holes in them but I love em. No wonder George Straight wears them.
It all started out in 1973 when my Papa got his first pair of Justin boots. Owning a farm full time while driving a truck his boots barely came off his feet in time to sleep. Not being the richest man out there he could only afford a pair around every 4 years. Along with the farm Justin boots have been passed down generation by generation. Being in a family of 8 a new pair of boots is very rare. I myself am in the FFA alumni and attend college while still maintaining the farm to support for my family being the oldest male. Justin's are the only boots me and my family will ever wear working the fields or doing daily activities.
My wife and I received our first pair this week at the Ranch Headquarters. They were sitting on the bed when we got to our room. Don't know much about them yet, all of the other winners were saying this is the top of the line in boot wear. Cant wait to take them out on the town
I'm Neil Johnson, 20 years old from Massachusetts. My boots have been to hell and back tied on my feet. They've been through the worst mud in the pig pen wrangling some hogs. Been soaked, frozen, beat by the sun. The hours they have been worn while balin hay, and picking vegetables is uncountable. Being 20 years old and runnin my own farm, while attending a degree for business, my top priority hasn't been gettin a new pair of boots. First pair of boots I had that I can say are not even dirt proof anymore.
I'm from Atlantic Canada and we don't have a huge selection of tack shops or justin boots to chose from. When I got back in the saddle a few years ago I had no idea what brands were good and what the girls were wearing these days. I heard in terry Clark's "gypsy boots". I thought hey they must be cool. I found a pair of Justin gypsy round toe online(never tried a pair on-luck). I had them shipped to the U.S. town bordering my town and loved them! I then moved on to the Justin bent rail to show in. I am now awaiting my gypsy square toes ! I will never stray away from Justin boots! Amazing luck with them!
My Boot story begins in the 7th grade when my dad said I needed a good pair of boots to go fishing in. We then made a journey to the local boot store to buy my first pair of boots. I was told nothing was as good as Justin's so that's what I bought. Not long after these boots got a whole new meaning as I began horse back riding. And now I've been working on a horse farm for 4 years. These boots have become part of my passion and life. I wear them just about everyday (despite their rough look). They're part of my cowgirl lifestyle.
