I am Lane Hopper of Fort Worth, Texas and I want to tell you about my "Lucky Boots"! I am a bull rider and when I compete I always wear my worn out, tattered, barely hanging on Justin boots to ride in. As you can see in the picture they have been out of the chute many times!! I will not do a thing to change them except get new soles when the holes get to be too much. These "Lucky Boots" have helped me to win many bullriding events; most recently the North Texas High School Rodeo Association 2012 Championship. These boots also just won the "Most Worn Out Boots " Contest at the National Day of the American Cowboy in the Fort Worth Stock Yards! Boots and spurs are intregral parts of my riding equipment and me and my "Lucky Justin Boots" are buckin' for our next buckle!!
On April 21, 2012, I was riding my motorcycle on a ride to raise money for a charity. It was early morning and was riding in full leather with a group of friends. My bike had a mechanical failure and I got rear ended by another bike I was dragged 150 feet on my side trapped under my bike. After I left the hospital and went through my shredded leather I looked at my boots and on the side that was dragged on the pavement they were paper thin. Turns out my boats saved my ankle from road rash and shattering. Thank you for making a boot I can trust.
I didnt actually purchase my boots, they were a gift as part of a prize package of a trip I won. I have to say not being a boot person, these boots make me wanna wear them all the time!!! I now am looking into getting my son a matching pair like his daddys!!
I have worn boots all my life!! Well every summer I'm always in for a new pair of boots!! But this year my pa didn't have the money to buy me new boots, so I had to work my butt off to get me a new pair. So I walked into tractor supply and Justin boots were the only boot I could get with the little cash I had. So I got me some Justin boots and I love em!! My ma you used to say "Hard work builds character." and Justin boots made it easier for me to work, play, and go to church in!! Thank ya Justin boots to make it possible for poor folk, like my family to be able to buy a good pair of boots!!!!
I got my boots a long time ago for horse back riding lessons; and to be honest its the best decision I have ever made! Mine are hard to find online though. I wanted to see details on them but no luck online. They used to hurt my feet but once i put gel insoles in them it has been smooth sailing from there. So I LOVE THESE boots and they are my life now that I own a pair I want even MORE of them!!!
My name is Julianna Monaghan, Iam 11 years old. I love horses and anything involving animals and country life. I bought a pair of Justin Gypsy boots at Tractor Supply in Watertown NY with money I had recieved for my 10th birthday in May 2011. After about 8 months of daily wear, I noticed they were beginning to come apart at the stitching. I was dissapointed because I liked them so much. I called the Justin company and was told to take them back to Tractor Supply and get either a new pair or my money back. I told the lady on the phone I didn't keep my receipt, she said no problem, so I took them to TSC the manager said, (with a smile) "Just choose a new pair or would you like your money back", I got a pair exactly like I had after trying on other brands because Justins are so comfortable. I have told all of my horse riding friends about the awesome experience I have had with Justin. They are the best and I will continue to buy Justins. Thank You.
In the spring of 1998 I developed a heel spur from plantar phaschitis. I might have spelled it incorrectly. I was in a lot of pain for well over a year and had to spend a lot of time walking and standing. I must have tried over a dozen pair of shoes, and nothing worked until I bought a pair of Justin lace up work boots in April of 1999 in San Antonio, Texas. Within 3 days I had no more pain and my foot never bothered me again. I have always bragged on those Justin boots. Thanks, Ken
My nanny wore these boots as a teenager, and since then they have been passed through three more generations. We have had the soles re-done, as being so comfortable they were worn down with constant wear. I have yet to find a pair of more beautifully designed boots--the butterflies on the front and back as well as the stars lined near the pullup straps. Nanny acquired them while riding in the northern New Mexico mountains. The story was that she was riding some trails, and she came across another rider who wanted her blanket. So her blanket was swapped for this pair of boots. My teenage daughter now wears them around Orange County, California. She is often stopped with people inquiring where to get a pair of boots like hers. Her reply, "Justin."
I have to share this with you. I am to be married soon and we took some pre-wedding shots, and are using this one for our program cover. It looks like a fantastic ad for Justin boots! It was such a happy day as we rode horses for some of our pics too. Living large on a ranch in Saskatchewan Canada! (p.s. My sister lives in Justin, TX, which is where I actually bought my boots!)
My work boots I bought a year ago havent worn at all. I've abused them beyond belief, and I still haven't need for another pair yet. They're perhaps the most comfortable boots I've ever owned and they somewhat serve as running shoes for the racetrack on Sunday's and from other various animals. Cant wait to get another pair, top notch!
My little man is now 6 months old and already has his first pair of Justin just like his Pa Paw wears. As our family focuses on outdoor activities at the ranch we made sure he had boots that are as tough as him.
My daughter, who is soon to be 32, always wore little girl boots when she was growing up in the 80's. Back then, boot companies actually made boots to fit a little girl with a narrow foot. Thankfully, I saved all her boots throughout her growing up years and today her daughter, who is 11, is wearing them. Her foot is narrow like her mother's and today's styles will not fit her. She loves the fat baby boots, but she walks right out of them. I don't know what we would have done had I gotten rid of my daughter's old boots. A few pairs have been polished and put away for another little girl someday.
My Justin's are the best boots I have ever owned. They are tough, comfortable and they look great dirty or clean. When I get to the firehouse at night they stay on my feet until it is time to switch out into turnout gear. I can't imaging wearing anything else. And thank God they are still made here in the USA. They can handle nearly every dirty job a firefighter is called to do and then some. I love them so much I even made my own little poster.
Growing up all I remember my dad wearing where Justin's. My sister and I still use the old boxes to pack. I have Cerebral Palsy so I limp slightly and drag my right foot a little. I can honestly say Justin's help me walk better... I can wear them all day!
I just wanted to say that Justin makes the lightest most comfortable boot I have ever put on my foot, My work is in the electrical utility and have wore the same pair of boots since 2007!!! Too scared to get a new pair because of the way these feel, way to go guys.
Back in the 80's, I HAD to have a pair of Justin lace-up ropers! You know, the ones with the fringe at the toe! Now, I didn't work a ranch, own a horse, or for that matter, even go out dancing much...but I wore those boots like crazy because they were so comfortable. Years passed and styles changed...just like our life activities. The boots were put away on a shelf. In the late 90's, my daughter was performing in a Christmas play with an "old west" theme. We were in the process of moving out-of-state and everything was being packed. As I sat on the hotel floor making a prairie skirt with a glue-gun and hem tape, I thought of those boots. We dug those boots out, and to my surprise, they fit perfectly! She was the hit of the play! Now, she shows quarterhorses at open shows...boots are everywhere around here, but she passed my size up a long time ago! I think those boots are still packed away somewhere...maybe I will pass them on to a grand-daughter one day!
Bought this pair of Justin black lizard boots in 1980. They are the old needle toe style # 8310. I'm still wearing them 32 years later. They are beginning to split a little, but they still shine up like a new dollar. They are still the most comfortable pair of boots in my closet.
My whole life I have been looking for good durable and comfortable work boots. I finally found that pair when I tried on the Justin Stampede Boots. Now, I can wear by boots all the time and not hurt with every step. Justin boots make the most comfortable and durable boots out there.
On Labor Day weekend, September 2009, I went into The Boots Store, in the flea market, here in Simpsonville, Kentucky. I was just stopping in to say hello to my church pastor who happens to own the store. After about 15 minutes of talking to my pastor he asked if I needed anything. I replied along the lines of "Sure! Let's see what you got!" As soon as I got into the Justin Boots isle he picked up a fantastic looking pair of Justin Tekno Crepe Arizonas and I instanly knew I had to have them! We went through the steps of fitting them right and finding my size and needless to say, I left with the pair I picked out. It's now been almost 4 years since I bought them and I still wear them all the time! I can walk, run, ride and even sleep in them, because they're so comfortable that I sometimes forget they're even on my feet! These boots have seen all kinds of places including West Virginia, Wyoming, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, Hawaii, Georgia, Louisiana and North Carolina! There's really no need for me to tell my Justin Boots Story, these boots tell their own story!
I had an injury to my right ankle on Nov. 8th of 2011. It left me with 2 plates and nine screws, 2 scars, and a whole lot of therapy. I have worn cowboy boots my whole life, and my Justin 8500 full quill ostrich boots are my favorite. Thanks to God for sparing my life and my leg and foot, I am now able to wear them again. I'm hoping to get a pair of the ostrich crepes, that way I can go back to wearing boots full time. Thanks Justin Boots for making the best boots ever!
I have been wearing Justin Boots since I can remember and I'll alway wear Justin. Being only 16 I'm active in many different horse related activities plus school things too. They're the only boots that I've found or worn that are so comfortable that I can wear them all day and night and my feet never hurt. I wear my boots with everything no matter what I'm wearing. I can honestly say the I sleep with my boots on sometimes because I forget I'm wearing them because they're so comfortable. (The boots in the picture are only my most recent three pairs.) I love my Justin Boots! :)
My husband and two boys run a small family farm. They raise black Angus cattle to sell and to show in our county fair. They are always working in the mud and dirt. No other footwear will do for them except Justin boots. My husband and youngest son prefer the Justin pull-on style for their comfort and ease of getting on. My older son prefers the Justin lace-up style so that he can fit in with all the big boys at the county fair. They don't stay clean for very long, but they sure do get worn!
I bought my first pair of Justin Ropers in 1980. In Canada it is hard to find a good boot that didn't have a extreme point. Well when i found those black 11 inch tall Ropers I fell in love. They felt great from day one, and took a spit polish easily. Well they were resoles and reheeld six time before they wore out still got em though. Bought my second pair out of Melo Veal well now talk about a polished toe cap. They have been keeping me comfortable now but a couple of hicuups with the boots. Last week I bought another two pair. One for efveryday wear the other for formal wear. I love the feel, the look and the polish it takes. My colleagues ask me why I wear a boot. I told em cause they are so darn comfortable and I don't break laces. Well one colleague bought his own pair of ropers and he loves his Justin's as much as I do. Don't ever stop making these boots
Back in 1982, a few months before giving birth to my son, took a trip to my hometown of El Paso, Texas where I bought a beautiful pair of Justin Boots. They felt like heaven on my feet (which is hard for someone with tender swollen feet) from the first time I tried them on, and still felt the same a few days before I gave birth to my beautiful son. My son is named Justin because of one wonderful day in El Paso. He's now 29 and I love him more with each year that passes, along with those same boots! Also have bought several pair since :-)
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.
