I recently was the photographer for a sweet country, cowboy/cowgirl wedding in Durango, CO. Not surprising, the Bride wore brown Justin boots, with pink trim, under her beautiful, white wedding gown - so cute!!!!



When we were taking some formal photos of the Bride, she sat down on the alter steps to rest for a minute when I noticed the bottom of her boots!!! There was "JUSTIN" imprinted on the bottom of her boot!



Can you believe, the sweet story is, the Groom's name is Justin!!! What a photo opportunity!!!

I catch her in them all the time! This time she had the decency to have a diaper on; sometimes she is naked! Nothing on but red Justin boots and a smile.

Here I am, a livestock showgirl. Loud, proud and ready for anything. My boots keep me comfortable and stylish. I love my Justin Bent Rail Square Toed Turquoise Boots. They have done me good. They are great to wear to school, to livestock judging competitions, soils competitions, FFA & 4-H events, weddings, graduations and livestock shows. I walk in these boots many hours a day. They are great riding boots too. I would wear these over any pair of tennis shoes or high heels, any day. I love my boots and would like to thank you for making a great boot.

Best Boots of all time!

When I was in the 7th Grade my parents bought me a new pair of Justin Tekno Ropers, I got them a size and a half too big so I could grow into them, I am now 20 years old and I have worn those boots religiously since the day my parents bought them for me, at school, in college, at work, and just for everyday use, I wouldn't trade them for nothing. Even though I've bought several new pair of Justin's since then (I wont ware any other brand of boot) my Tekno Ropers I got for my birthday when i was 13 years old are, and always will be my favorite pair, they have a special place in my heart.

Total Infatuation
rate this story

When I was young, I had several surgeries on my foot and leg. After major reconstruction, I was told I might never walk again (I don't like being told what I can and can't do, so I proved those doctors wrong). Over the years, I've discovered that shoes and me...well, we just don't get along. I've found a few brands that work fine, but never anything like my Justin's. From the moment I slipped my feet inside, I felt like I had found my "sole" mates. No breaking in required, and beautifully crafted. Plus, they've got hot pink shafts, and hearts & flowers embroidered all over them. If they weren't mine, I'd be downright jealous!

Bird Watching

It was September 24, 2008 when a pair of Justin Boots won an incredible game of man versus the wild. I was headed west towards home when i noticed a plot of land that looked suitable for my mother. A storm was relieving the land at the time so i believed that it would be in my best interest to return at a later date. It just so happened that the following morning was my mother's birthday. In the between time I derived a plan of action. I packed my pair of trusted Justin Rubber Water Boots in the back of my Chevrolet truck. I also had a very dependable fleece interior water tight exterior jacket and Tweed back pack that i always carry on trips into the wild. However, this story is solely derived with the intent of trustworthyness. The morning of my mothers birthday was extreme. The birds were erect searching for any and every moving insect in the pasture. The dragonflies were buzzing about absorbing every bit of moisture off exhausted patches of grass. The convection of heat rose off each and every bit of cow dough in the field. I eased my truck into the back drive of a homestead that had looked to be abandoned. Upon further review i believe the home was under tenure construction. Either the case i was intent on scouting this plot of land. I knew that i did not have the funds to surprise my mother on her birthday with a land deed but i was still intent on discovering a place new to me. Unannounced to me a martin county sherrif had mimicked my movement into the drive of the house adjacent to my vehicle. He did not have plain view of my chevrolet truck. However, he did see that i was in the field with what appeared to be a large plastic bag. As a youth i was schooled in the art of chasing pigs. Through my observations i have realized that a bird is a pigs best friend. The only place that a bird will not go is into a field that has been flooded by an august storm. On foot. On the back of a pig however is mighty enticing. The amount of bugs, aroused by the movement of the slow creature does not entice the birds. I believe that it is merely the enjoyment of the ride. In whatever case i was in the middle of the field, wearing justin boots, and the sherrif was in his car, wearing black polished high gloss ceremony boots. Between the officer and myself was a large plot of land. In all directions was standing water. There was no possible way that the officer could have handcuffed me in that position. Through a loud yell across the pasture i heard his voice," hey you there! I responded,"give me a minute, i will come on over to the fence where you are at!" I immediately stowed the bag full of food in a cool place and trudged towards the officer. After a briefing on the lay of the land i was informed that my shirt had the words TAP OUT written across the breast area in bright orange letters. The owner of the land had previously celebrated the coming of the rains and did not wish to saturate his own newly aquired Justin work boots. Therefore i stood the test of time and was released 7 days later with a promise to appear for tresspassing. My entire family could not believe what i had done. I had scouted the entire pasture, by foot, in a pair of justin waterproof boots. All of the while the rest of okeechobee county rejoiced at the Dairy Queen in the comfort of a full service restauraunt; my Justin Boots remained rigid in the security of my mothers home.

Justin Boots ... where rebooting is fun !!!

I work in a cubicle office environment in DFW with about 200 other people. My colleagues and I spend most of the day on our computers. A lot of times, the computers freeze up and we've got to shut them down ... the dreaded "reboot".

One day, I wore my Justin boots in to work. I didn't have to reboot my computer once. So, I thought up the slogan, "Justin Boots ... where rebooting is fun !!!" I hope you can use it.

rate this story

my cousins and i always used to go to the creek and try to catch minos and guppies with are mason jars. when we wore tennis shoes the water would shred the cheap made leather, so we bought some justin boots at the local supply store, they would hold up with us like that water was nothing. i liked justin boots so much cause they were made in the usa! we wore out some justin boots through out the years, thanks justin for the great boots.

Justin Boots are the only ones I will wear when competing at a rodeo or just working around the ranch!! They are comfortable enough to wear all day long on horse back but have enough class for a night out at the rodeo(:

Justin Sea Turtles
rate this story

I have a pair of Justin Sea Turtle boots (endangered species) that do not fit me any longer. They still have the original Justin soles on them. I am looking at trying to either have them re-worked to fit or maybe some one would be interested in making an offer on them. They may be the last pair in existence.

Mother to daughter, " Choose your boots like you chose your husband, forever."

I was so excited when I bought my boots in 1993. They are still like new after all these years. I've taken care of them well and they fit like a pair of my favorite jeans. When my daughter told me she was going to be a bridesmaid in a western wedding I knew she needed real cowboy boots, not some phoney, made in China piece of plastic. Can you imagine your poor feet inside a plastic boot? Well first thing I did was get my Justins out of the closet and show her how they looked worn, but new. I said, "Daughter, choose your boots like you're choosing a husband. They'll last you a lifetime so you had better not only like them, but love them." She got the most awesome boots turquoise and tan Justin boots at the Boot Barn! I'm jealous now and only wish I could afford to buy a new pair. Mine are black and I always wanted another in a fancy color made out of iguana or ostrich, etc. Exotic in other words. Well on another note about husbands, I'm divorced nine years now from a 20 yr marriage, but my boots are still with me. I did a better job choosing my boots than I did a husband. That's o.k., a good pair of boots are more important than a man right now.

Standing on my own two feet in Justins!
rate this story

I got my first pair of Justin boots when I was 16, they were a gift from my parents. I wore my boots quite often to school, around my own house doing yardwork, and to fit right in stylishly at the annual rodeos in Okeechobee. 2 years after I got my boots I was in a very bad car accident. No one was sure I would ever walk again, then I worked at it alone in my hospital room and then proved to my doctors I was ready to try it. Then I was released from the hospital and had to attend physical therapy for a year, along with other therapies. At home, in therapy, and anywhere else I went I wore my Justins because they supported my badly injured ankles. I have had my Justins since I was 16. Now I am 27, I am married, and live in Georgia. I can't find any Justins around here as easily as I could in Florida, but I will never settle for anything else. My sister taught me about Justins when I was younger, I took pride in my roper workboots for many years, and my boot soles are cracked, but I will wear them until I find another pair because they have held up and been through so much with me!

Nothing but my Justins.
rate this story

For 50 years I've shown, worked all day, and rode my cutting horses. Many times all over country people have tried to sell me other brand boots. No I wear these and nothing else. I put in 14 hours in them and they never gave me a problem.Why try something else when the Justin never lets me down. I where the black at work as a law enforcement officer and they give me much more comfort and readiness than a uniform boot. Thank you for them. Have about 12 pair and they hold up great. Leather soles are the best for me. Keep them coming.

My boots
rate this story

I have always wore boots, since i was born. I am now 15 years old and bought my first pair of Justin boots Tuesday and I absolutely love em! They are so comfortable! I went to tractor supply with 83 dollars, wanting some ropers, well the ropers were out of my price range, so I kept looking at the boots i got now and i tried them on and they were like love at first sight! I had to get them right then for 73 dollars. My mom always asks me how I wear boots and jeans in the summer time and I tell her its a country thing! Lol! I sleep with my boots and my boots will be barried with me when I die. I have 2 other pair, bt their not Justins!!!!!

In November of 2009 i got a pair of Justin stampede tekno crepes. I begged my dad for them and he finally gave in when i said they would be dress boots. But that only lasted a week (i tried) until we went huntin and i forgot my work boots. Since then ive put them thru everything from workin cows to school. They could use some work but they fit perfectly and remind me of how great Justin boots are. Thanks for the great boots Justin keep it up!

Long Live Justin Boots!
rate this story

My son Cody was born on August 16, 1975 in Gothenburg, Nebraska.

Approximately 1 month prior to that date, I traded a friend (who owned a western store in Oshkosh, Nebraska) a good blue eyed Australian Shepherd pup for a pair of Justin full quill ostrich ropers and a down filled Pendelton coat.

We both were pleased with the trade. I wore the coat until duct tape would no longer stick to it. But the Justin boots I have to this day....and they look great! I am complimented on them virtually every time I wear them. They have been re-soled and re-heeled many times but continue to fit like a pair of soft gloves.

I had them on the day my son was born; he and my Justins turned out to be keepers!
