I got my first pair of vintage Justin Diamond J lacers from a flea market here in California. The boots were fully lined and exquisite. They just needed new laces and polishing. I cared for them, cherished them and had them resoled 3 times. I did not know where I could find new ones. Then I did some research, and the cobbler I went to for resoling and refurbishing, told me about the history of the boots. I wore these boots out for over 10 years, and gave them up, regrettably. I loved those boots so much. I looked online to see where I could get them. I have not found them yet. I recently got a pair of Justin Gypsy square toed orange suede boots. I want to get a new pair of black Chester ropers that lace up, with leather soles. It will be my goal to save up for them this year. It will be like being reunited with a long lost friend when I do achieve to get those boots again.
I am a 48 year old female,former disco girl of the 80's . I live in NY. I went country in the 90's. I own 7 pairs of Justin Lizard cowboy boots. one pair use ro me white ( I was married to my first husband in them) I had them dyed Navy.
There use to be a telephone number where you could purchase slightly irregular Justins. I purchased two pairs and they were perfect. All my other were retail directly through justin. i am sorry I did not purchase red or peanut brittle but they have been discontinued I think.
Some folks think wearing boots is rough on the feet. Those folks do not know what wearing a good pair of boots is like and Justin Boots are real good. My name is Ray Lawrence Jr. I play country music and I have been wearing boots as long as I have been walking. I think I have had just about every brand of boots know to man on my feet. Some brands of boots seem like they took forever to break in and I have broke in many a pair of boots in my 49 years. I have been wearing Justin Boots for at least 20 years or more and every time i put a pair of Justin boots on my feet, they feel great. Not much break in time needed. They are well made and no matter what style I buy I know I will have a pair of boots that are tough enough to work in, comfortable enough to walk in and when they get a little dirty, just clean em up and put em on and hit the stage and play some music wearing my Justin Boots. When I leave this world, bury me wearing my Justin Boots that way I will have em forever. I have a lot of pairs of boots and the one problem I have is selection. There are so many styles and looks that it usually takes me a long time to pick the style I want. That is why I have so many boots. There is no such thing as too much of a good thing when it comes to good boots and Justin Boots are real good and tough and great looking too. Hard working boots that can take a lot of torture and look good while you are in front of several hundred people on stage.
My story is a sad one. I was involved in a horrible tragedy feb. 20,2012.. I was ran over by a truck. I was hit so hard my femoral artery exploded. I lost 11 pints of blood. My legs were shattered except the leg that still had on my justin boot.My pelvis was shattered ..my hip.. knee. I was airlifted to the nearest hospital. I've been in and out of the hospital for months. I was hit so hard one of my boots came off..that leg had to have ankle plate and rod. The leg that my boot stayed on was fine where the boot was ..not even a scratch but I lost my boots.. thank you justin you saved part of my leg!!!
hi, im Zachary. I got a pair of western Stampede boots for christmas. They're so comfortable and worth the money. I will always ,love justin boots. Thanks, you guys do a great job!!!
Here I am on Christmas morning writing about my best present, my new Justin work boots!
I am brutal to my boots. I work in everything from sewage to concrete. I kick, push, shove, walk in, and walk through things that most people would refuse to copy.
It seems I have tried every boot offered by the competition. I can say with complete certainty, the Handcrafted in the USA Justin work boot is the toughest and longest-lasting boot that has ever wrapped my feet.
i have a pair of Ropers, style # 3136, i don't think they even make any more, that are made of elk hide. they are over 20 years old, and still going strong! they are the most comfortable boots i've ever had. almost better than house shoes! i don't know what i'll do if they ever wear out. i think i may wear out before they do.
I have been buying Justin Gypsy boots EXCLUSIVELY since I first found them about 5 years ago! Growing up, I was forced to buy lace-up boots everywhere due to having large calves, but when I found the Justin Gypsy line of pull-on boots with the 8" shaft, it was love at first buy! My family never has to wonder what to buy me as a gift as these boots are a staple in my closet. They last forever, despite the trials and tests I put them through, and I still have my first pair that I bought 5 years ago. Thank you Justin Boots for solving a dilemma that troubled a country girl for years!
I'm 22 and love being country going muding and getting down and dirty. I have had my boots for three years and I am bad on boots I wear them ever day. They have been filled with mud and water and I just hose them out and let them dry and they are like new again. I have worn them every chance I got when I was in the army and when I hang out with friends. After me having them all my friends have gone out and got a pair they are that great. You know they are the best when you are knee high in mud and they still feel great.
Hey, im Maddi and im 11 years old. I got a pair of Justin boots because i have an aunt who lives in oklahoma and i needed a trusty pair of boots for going up there. That was about 2 yrs. ago and my Justins still fit!! They are the most comfortable and trusty boots for farmlife and fourwheeling. Also I have had these boots for 2 yrs. as i said earlier and they're still good as new. When they get dirty most of the time you can just wipe them off and they're good but when they get SUPER dirty my dad cleans them with some stuff. I used to have a pair of ARIAT's ( i think that's how you spell it! LOL) and they were great but i only had them for less than a year because my feet were growing and i found that theydidnt really stretch from wear. So they were very tight on my feet and they wouldnt fit. But my Justin's have lasted me 2 yrs. so far and thats just the beginning! I love my Justin's and they are definetely the best boots on the market!
I've also tried Justin Brand jewewled flip flops. Great Quality!!!! They have lasted me a while and they're still in GREAT condition!!
I recommend everyone to get a pair of Justin boots. I also recommend every girl getting a pair of Justin Brand flip flops they are a very high quality product and they come with a handy little carrying bag. I find myself wearing my Justin flip flops to church, sometimes school, and places where i need a little dressier outfit.
I LOVE MY JUSTIN PRODUCTS!!!
I'm 64 and started wearing Justin Boots when I earned enough money to buy my first pair at 16 yrs of age. Since then I've wore out three pair of ropers and one pair of your cowboy boot. I now have another pair of ropers and a pair of lace-up boots!
The quality of Justin Boots is unbeatable in my book!! The two pair that I have now will last me for another ten yrs!!
First off would like to say i'm in love with my boots. I'm a pipeline welder so safety toes are a must the first time i put on a pair of the Stampede safety toe square toes i was amazed at how light they were i couldn't believe they were steel toed. I have worn other steel toed boots in the past and they were very heavy. They take take a beating too an after a year of work and play they still clean up and look just like when they came out of the box. I wear them horse riding now and they support spurs nicely.
If it wasn't for the boots I probably wouldn't be marrying the most amazing man I know!
About a year ago, I was looking to find some boots, but I had no idea what kind to get! So I contacted an old friend that I hadn't talked to in almost a year, and he told me I definitely wanted a pair of Justin Boots. He told me what kind and where to go and we just kept talking after that. He told me "I had him at the boots.."
We're getting married in January and guess what shoes I'll be wearing?! ;)
I was recently out riding my horse at a nice canter across a sidehill when we must have slipped in one of the many springs on my property, my horse slipped and fell on me, pinning my leg from knee down between him and the ground. A bunch of xrays later revealed no breaks of any kind. I give the credit to my Justin gypsies I was wearing. I've worn gypsies for many years but never would have thought they would have saved my ankle from being shattered. I highly recommend them to everyone I talk to anymore. Thank you Justin, you have wonderful products.
i was a freshman in highschool known for my clunking boot heels as i walked through the hall my grandma always bought m a new pair of boots for school the day we picked up my new boots we went out searching thrif shops for a 2 nd pair an here en lies the tale these boots wer old cracked and beat up when i tried them on my grandma saw the look in my eye and said its a eraly christmas present theyve seen more back roads pretty girls and hard times then i can count the cobblerkeeps putting them right everytime mom keeps saying dont ya think theyve about had it i just smile and laugh ive had these four years now im 18 im a justin boots fan even though i own many brands well grandmas getting older and when shes gone ill always have a part of her in these boots to carry me along
Really appreciate your black Gypsy steel toe/electrical hazard/waterproof boots... practically impossible to find those qualifications in my size! (Ladies' 6.5)
They're perfect for everything... tech rescue, at the fire station, 24hrs at a time while on duty as a flight medic, when standing 8hrs straight teaching EMT class, working with the horses, and even dressing up. So grateful to have one pair of boots that covers everything. Keep up the good work!
I bought these Ropers for motorcycle riding on 10/19/1999, have rode in them ever since ! I had them re-souled last winter due to the souls wore smooth and at stop signs my feet would slide or slip and had a hard time keeping bike up-right. They now are very dark from polishing them with different colors of Justin shoe polish, but they are still my main boots for riding and winter use. All my shoes before these would last me less than a year. It is unbeleivable.
Being raised on a ranch I've always wore boots, but when i was born i had a stroke which when i was growing up i had to wear painful braces till my family discovered my boots worked just as well if better than the braces... Justin yall have been a life saver ,thank you :)
as a fire fighter i know what good boots are made of, a few weeks ago we responded to a car crash and the only thing i had with me where my Justin steal toed pull on's. the cable pulling the car out of the ditch snapped and the car came crashing down on top of my feet thank god for the boots you all make.
I am 55 years old, and getting back into riding again the last few years. I have never been able to find western boots I could get my feet into (have high arches) and were wide enough to be comfortable if I could cram my feet into them. I just bought these round toed Justin Gypsy boots and they are wonderful! I can get them on easily, are wide enough and sooo comfortable! I can't wait to ride in them tomorrow! Thank you!
I have been wearing your Justin Gypies for years. I had somany problems with trying on and wearing boots as my insteps are high,sooooo i tried on a pair of Gypsies and they actually felt like putting on apair of my house shoes!!!!!! I couldn't believe it. Wearing them all day is no problem. I just love them, and will continue to wear them far into the future.
On 11-24-11 I was burned 75% of my body 3rd degree in a explosion at work. I was engulfed from head to toe with only my face,chest arms and feet not being toasted. The only thing that saved my feet were my MADE IN THE USA Justin lace ups. I have been a Justin wearer for over ten years and they for sure saved my feet and have made my recovery faster as I was able to walk way before I was supposed to due to my feet being in good shape. Thanks for making such a great product! God bless the USA!
Just purchased a pair of J-Max 8 inch laceups. They are the most comfortable well made workboots out there. I farm and work construction and wore redwings for many years. These are more comfortable and made as well. Great sole and leather! Glad to see you can still get a U.S.A. made boot.
My uncle Garland was a traveling boot salesman for Justin boot Co. He sold my father a pair of signature edition boots in 1979. No. 798/1000. These boots are still very beautiful. I always wanted them. Must have only been worn very little, like new. My father sold these boots to my uncle Joe, he then sold them to Jim at my church. I saw the tip of them sticking from under his slacks and asked to see them. All this happened without my knowledge. He sold them to me for a song. I am so pleased to have them. Hope you enjoy the photo!
I purchased my Justin mule hide boots 30 + years ago, they were my first pair of Justins. They have been resoled and reheeled but I have never had to do anything other than clean them with saddle soap and use boot cream on them. One night when I was living in Oregon a raging storm came up and the horses were still out in the pasture. Grabbed my Justin boots and ran out the door putting them on as I went. Was soaking wet and up to my ankles in mud gathering the horses in to the barn. Stopped in the mudroom in the house to remove boots and wet clothes and didn't take care of them till the next day. Mud was caked on and dried, took them outside hosed them off , and then treated them with saddle soap and boot cream and when they were dry creamed them again and they were good as new. I now have 7 pairs of Justin Boots and can't think of wearing any other kind. Justin you're the Best and Only Boot to wear!!!
