The Boot of Champions
rate this story

Lat year in June, I was a member of a FFA team that qualified to go to the National Land Judging and Homesite Evaluation Contest that takes place in Oklahoma every year. Every land judger knows that the keys to being successful are a good land knife and a perfect pair of boots. I had the good knife, but my old boots just weren't dependable enough to make the cut. So I went on the search for the perfect pair and finally settled on a pair of Justin George Strait boots. On contest day, I trudged out into the thirty degree, rainy, windy weather, jumping into muddy soil pits with no concern about my feet getting wet! My rain suit couldn't even hold up to the Oklahoma weather, because by the second hole my rain pants were ripped clear to the ankle, flapping in the wind like the sails of a sailboat.
My team brought home two national titles that day, and I placed in the top ten in both contests. Our team holds the titles of the 2013 National FFA Land Judging and Homesite Evaluation Champions. Those boots will always hold a special place in my heart because they held up to the tough Oklahoma red dirt and mud, so I know that they will hold up to anything else I put them through, wether it be cleaning out horse stalls, riding my horses, or competing in another FFA contest.
