Well for starters, I never thoughtdI'd be posting a story about my boots, but these boots are different. For the last few years I've been wearing a pair of workboots covered in tape. A) because I couldnt afford a decent pair and B) when I did finally order a pair 400 $ later only to recieve them and realize they were made overseas. By a well named company I might add, that rymes with banner. To much disappointment I contacted said company over craftsmanship only to basically be laughed at. Needless to say I shipped them back and went back to my trusty taped up boots. Im a female construction worker and have a hard time finding good boots in my size. Much to my suprise santa left a pair of Justin boots for me under the tree for xmas...aged bark gortex, I'd never owned a pair of Justin boots and only knew them in the cowboy sense. After placing them on my feet and taking several steps around my livingroom I quickly realized why the cowboys and girls praise the Justin name. These are the most comfy boot I've owned to date and although I don't have a horse or wear a cowboy hat, I feel like a cowgirl in workboots and couldnt be happier. Thank you to Jeremiah who worked hard on craftsmanship and everyone else at Justin for the hardwork in the U.S.A . I love my boots
I bought my wife a pair of Justin boots to slip on real quick while she was letting our dogs outside. Wrapped nicely under our tree 4 days ago. And Christmas Eve night while we were gone our house caught fire and destroyed everything. I was able to find part of the boots and showed her. She was so thankful even though they were beyond wearable. I know it's not the type of story you're looking for on here but it made her happy and in turn put a smile on both our faces. We took a picture of it so we can have at least one good memory of us on Christmas.
In 2006, my dad was diagnosed with bone cancer. He was sent to Audie L. Murphy Veterans Hospital in San Antonio, where he spent more than a month while he underwent a stem cell transplant. While visiting the Alamo with him, I bought a pair of black Justin cowboy boots at an outdoor tent sale. They quickly became my favorite boots, and I've been wearing them for 7 years. I've worn a hole clear through the sole of the right one, but I keep putting them back on! My husband and friends laugh at me, and say throw them away. I can't really explain it, but they're sentimental to me, because of the circumstances. Dad came through the transplant and he's still here. As long as the boots are with me, I feel like Dad will be with me. Sounds crazy, but...I love my boots, and I'm planning on getting them resoled, and wearing them for another 7 years. Hopefully longer.
My story is simple.Every two years I get a new pair of justn work boots.I dont have ten things I use I have one. Every day 7 days a week the same boot. I work at a chevy dealership in sales and I work for myself installing heating and cooling units.When I worked in Santa Fe NM the owner of the dealership came up to me and ask me why i wear them old boots.He said he would buy me new shoes if i would not wear old dirty boots.He said I have millons in this place and you sell cars in them nasty old boots.I told him these boots tell a story.He walked away and said as long as you keep selling I will not ask again.Its not about how you look its about the man.
My middle name (Justin) was given to me by father after my grandfather's black squared toe pair of Justin boots. 32yrs later I finally got my own pair of Justin boots.
However I have always been able to meet my needs on the BH site. However there are no insulated steel toe boots on this site. I did however did finally find a pair in my size at the working man store.
Thank you for continueing the unbeatable tradition and quality built into every pair I have owned.

I was raised in a rural part of North Carolina (ie: The Country) where cowboy boots are quite prevalent. Ten years ago, I transplanted to Atlanta, GA where I tried to ignore my humble beginnings. After meeting the love of my life, who's from the country as well, I remembered where I had come from. O'er the Thanksgiving break, her cousin & I went to Dunham's in Rome, GA where I was pretty sure I'd end up with just some general ol' work boots. Much to my surprise, I tried on the Justin Rugged Tan Cowhide boots and they fit over my former football/soccer calves. I bought them immediately, and I couldn't be more happy. I look forward to the many uses I'll get out of them and wearing them as often as possible. Thank you Justin for getting me back in touch with where I came from.
