The first real pair of boots (I'd had a pair as a kid, but I probably didn't wear them long..) I purchased for myself when I had just turned 18. I got a pair of Justin Bent Rails from the Justin Discount Boots outlet in Justin, TX about 20 min from my home in Argyle. My friends came with me to help pick out a pair, we were going to go to Billy Bob's that weekend to go dancing. It took me a little while to decide on a pair (they were all so awesome), but I loved the ones I ended up with. That weekend we saw Clay Walker, a concert that I will always remember. This was my very first introduction to country dancing. I fell in love. That group of friends only went out to Billy Bob's once a month though, so I didn't really do much dancing (or boot wearing for that matter) until April 1, 2011. I remember the day because it was opening day of the Texas Rangers Season, I watched the game with some friends, and met a girl at the party. She invited me to go dancing that night. I was introduced to a huge group of friends who are AMAZING dancers and I am now very grateful to call them all my great friends. Ever since that day, I've gone VERY few weeks without going dancing at least one night, sometimes 2 or 3 or even 4 nights in a week. All in my first ever pair of Justin's. Along the way I've brought a number of friends to the Justin store to help them pick out boots. It's gotten to the point where the ladies who work there recognize me. I still wear those boots all the time. They now have holes in the soles and the heels are worn down. There are scuff marks in the shap of circles in the sole from all the spinning. I'm going to get them resoled next week. Tomorrow though, I'm headed back to the Justin store to get another pair! No matter how much people try to sell me on other boots, I'm a Justin fan for life!
