Justin Share Your Boot Story

Not Justin any closet...
rate this story

I have to say that Justin boots are an essential in our household. My first pair was a laceup work boot- they made my feet feel like 10 friends on a camping trip. Day in and out you wouldn't see me without my faithful friends strapped to my feet. Working my second job the rubber soles were my life saver from walking on concrete for 4-8 hrs a day. Then of course once I got home it was straight to the saddle, the only thing that changed was my britches.

One day my wonderful husband noticed that my boots had finally lost their grippy tread somewhere in the hundreds of miles I had put on them. Between me bustin' my rear on the slippery grass or on a fresh pile of horse manuer in the barn, is when he made this particular observation. So between his gut bustin' laughter and helping me hose off, his inventive "we can make do" fashion he grabs the grinder and grinding disc and inserts a new grippy tread. Those particular boots have since been retired, well until I find someone to have them resoled. Now I have gotten my new favorites, a pair of square toes out of the Remuda series. Although sometimes I hear my faithful workboots scuffeling around the closet, I still scoot around the house occasionally in them. I will say we are sold on Justin's, and have nothing else in our house. My husband is so dedicated he has hats, t-shirts, and I hesitate to say if Justin made a saddle, he'd probably have one of those too! I can say that my Justin's are my everything boots...They're my mall walkin', trash talkin', cow kickin', kid chasin', grass rakein', cake bakin' all around kind of style!

Not Justin Any Closet...they're in mine!
rate this story

After years of searching for the perfect boot my feet settled on my first pair of Justin's. Lace up roper work boots. They were more than good to me, the hugged my feet like spandex on a european swimmer. Okay maybe that's a bit of an exageration, but they were essential in my wardrobe. They were better than my best friend. But one day my husband noticed the tread was gone, I think it was the day I busted my rear in a feable attempt to slosh down to the barn to feed the horses and of course the grass was like an ice ring- so my beloved took a grinder and grinding disk and "made" me some new tread, and they were worn from then down to the sad existence they have today, down to leather so now they sit in the closet, waiting for to be reborn, waiting for a new sole. Every now and again I take them out, lace them up and slide around the house. Since that first pair Justin has always been my #1 choice. The last pair I bought are by far my favorites, out of the Remuda into my closet, well sometimes they make it into the closet- most of the time they come off before bed and right back on first thing in the morning. They go dancin', muddin', hole diggin', kid chasin', cow kickin', horse ridin', grocery shoppin', mall walkin' and tons more that I'm sure I can't think of right now. The only regret I have with my Justin Remuda's...I didn't take my husbands advice and buy 2 pair!

I have a pair of Justin Lace up Ropers that have been resoled 5 times. I wear them so much the soles always need replacing. They are the most comfortable boots ever. Occassionaly, I have them polished & then they look new. I bought them back in the early 1990's. I will probably be buried in them. LOL!!!

Justin is the only way to go
rate this story

My first pair of boots were some Justin work boots. After wearing those for the first time in the store, I never wanted to take'em off. After that I decided I needed some actual cowboy boots so I settled for some Tony Lamas. They were good, not as good as Justins. I decided that I really wanted some Justins again so I got the Chocolate Burnished Calf Bent Rail. They've been very good to me. I was putting the bridle on my horse and he's real on'ry and he stomped his hoof down right on my foot and stood there for about 15 or 20 seconds. My boots saved me from breaking a bunch of toes. They were sprained or something but not broken. And the toe of my boot is now pushed in, but I still wear'em everyday! Justin is the only way to go!

Good Ole Justin's
rate this story

I have been wearing Justin Boots since the late 80's. I've gone through phases where I've tried to look like a "girl" and wore heels and hose, capri's with flip flops etc. I bought several different kinds of boots back in 1991 and for those of you that are as sold on Justin Boots as I am, I ALWAYS return to a pair of my Justin Boots. I love all of my Justin's, but have one brown leather pair that feel like I've come back home whenever I put them on. I've had people ask me how I can wear a pair of boots and jeans in the summer time, on TX gulf coast, but not even heat keeps my JUSTIN'S off my feet.

chewed up boots
rate this story

My former boyfriends dog got a hold of 1 mate, chewed the toe and the heel. I obtained a quote although not positive it would be worth the $45.oo for repair to not come out looking like the original make of the boot. I love them though. wonderfully comfortable. I'm searching on line to see if I can locate the same style here in Columbus, Ohio. I'd purchased them many years ago and have held up beautifully other than Katy getting ahold of them.

I bought my first pair of Justin lace ups 20 years ago and still use them to this day. They are they only boots I've tried that are comfortable the second you put them on. I have two other newer pairs so I think I'll be taking a dirt nap before I ever buy another pair of boots..........

Justin - The ONLY boot!
rate this story

I am a Texas lawman and its been 35 years since I rode bulls and rodeo'd. But, I have always worn Justin boots and I will never wear any other brand. Why? Two reasons: 1. Justin boots are the finest boots on the market. 2. Justin sponsors the Justin Crisis Fund for Injured Cowboys. Justin cares about us. If anybody else cares about us, I haven't heard of them, but Justin sure does!
In the rodeo and in the patrol car a cowboy needs a boot that is comfortable, as well as functional, and that means Justin!

My new Justin Gypsy Boots saved my foot.
rate this story

My cousin and I were washing two horses. We washed the small retired race horse Bewitcher first and when we finished we allowed her to graze. We were washing Daisy the 18 hand giant who was acting up a little. I noticed that Bewitcher had her leg caught and I ran to help her and she was scared and stepped on my foot and hit my head with her head and I hit the ground and had a slight concussion. I am totally healed and I am sure my size 8 gypsy boots saved my foot. It is still black and blue but my boots are perfect.



Thank You

Best Boots I Have Eer owned, and I'll Never Buy a Pair That aint Justin Boots
rate this story

well i was in arkansas with my dad and he bought a really nice pair of boots, and i said dad, I WANT A PAIR TO. i got my boots and i have had them for 3 years. my boots are the best, i have worn them while riding my dirtbike, feeding and riding the animals, cleaning the stalls, working, and just plain casual shoes and they are still holding up. They only thing bad is that my feet are starting to grow again and they just dont fit like they used to and its a tight squeeze, but i still were my justin boots.

Best $140.00 I ever spent.
rate this story

I bought a pair of the #760 8" lacer Aged Bark Ropers. I wore them to school and church only for 2 years straight every day. I out grew them recently and will buy another pair because 1 they are made in the USA and 2 because the were so comfortable 3 the quality is second to none. People say your crazy for spending $140.00 on a pair of boots but let me tell you you will get your moneys worth.

Love my boots!!
rate this story

A couple years ago my boyfriend at the time talked my into spending all the money I had (I was just a kid without a job) on a pair of size 8 Saddle Cow Justin Gypsy boots. I was so proud of those boots. I have worn those things nearly everyday for over almost 3 years...they just recently started to leak a little. I can't think of any other boot or shoe that could wear as well as the ole Justin Gypsy! I went shopping for a brand new pair...just like the old ones...so far I can't find them but I love those old Saddle Cows and I will not give up until I find a pair in size 8! I LOVE MY BOOTS!!! =) Thanks Justin...you rock!!!!
