You do have to get used to them but my Dan Post's fit so well that I have no trouble walking in them.
I wear them eveyday at home though. I wear running shoes to work because of the sidewalks.
I think I may take a pair of my other boots to work so I can put them on while I'm at work.

Now Leon, there is a notion I had not entertained previously, but do enjoy the very idea of. They do seemingly get more attention and strike up conversations.But then I remember my reality, and the fantasy is over.

Jingle Bobs? I hope so.

Is that an outfit for SASS? Or just your every day cool attire?

Dan Post makes good boots, and I buy them whenever I find them on sale. However, the best pair of cowboy boots I ever owned was a pair of J. Chisholms. The same company doesnt make them anymore though, so they are as good as what they used to be. Now, I gravitate towards Luchesse 1883 or Classics. I do not like Luchesse 2000s, those really are not worth what they cost, and their assembly line manufacturing technique they use on those makes them next to impossible to resole properly. They don't hold up that well either for what they cost.

I've splurged in Chipewas and Double Hs a few times but it is hard to beat a regular old pair of Justin Ropers. The Ropers are at least as comfortable as any tennis shoes I've ever had.

I'm guessin' there is some Doc O'Lena on that horses pedigree.

I just leased out my double bred Doc Bar/Poco Tivio Stallion last month, and a friend is using my two geldings for the spring roundup in Utah.
So for the first time, in a couple of decades, I don't have any horses to take care of. A very strange feeling, I jump out of bed in the morning thinkin' I'm forgetting to feed or something, then go back to bed with kind of an emptiness.

Thank you all. You may have saved me a few tumbles. I was beginning to think it was genetic and Id never get it.

Nothing looks cooler than cowboy boots. Jimmie Vaughan once said if he was wearing a cool pair of boots he'd look down at his feet and 'feel like I could do a lot more than I could.'

Those Dan Posts look fine to me though, I may have to see if they post overseas.

So is it best to wear the same pair in, in the interests of getting used to them and staying vertical?

I order from Sheplers all the time. Great folks ...

I would advice you to get at least two pairs of boots to alter between, giving them time to "rest" and dry up any moisture.

I use to buy boots that looked just like that for 35.00 they were called "work boots" ...

Then the whole Urp n' Cowboy thing hit and everywhere you went it was 300.00 Tony Lamas.

edit
Wow 49.00

Looks just like the ones I use to buy...
When I wore them to New York in 1968 everybody looked at me like I was from another planet...

I bought mine for sale a few years ago and had them resoled last summer.
I have a pair just like those! Bought them when I was in Nashville in `97.

here's what I wear.

But I don't wear them to gigs. I can't play drums in them. I have to wear sneakers (trainers) for playing drums.

Justin Ropers. I wear plain old black Justin Ropers. I wear them when my daughter rides in a horse show (I'm a poser). We do own two horses and I can shovel poop with the best of them.

Horses are great.

Wow, nice horses. It must be hard to not have them around.

Doc has Doc Olena top and bottom. His sire is Sonitalena, the 1996 world champion (cutting). I also have a 19 year old cutting fool out of Gray's Starlight - San Stargazer - he is also Doc Olena bread. And then we have a mare out of Playgun. In fact we leave in about an hour to go to Texas to look at studs for her. The studs we are looking at are all related to Grey's Starlight in one way or another as we love Stargazer. We also are selling couple of other Sonitalena horses that aren't really fitting our program.

The rest of the herd is a mix - we have a couple of Norwegian Fjords and an appendix quarter horse that my wife trail rides.

I've found that price and comfort aren't necessarily related, but then when it comes to footwear fitting I seem a bit peculiar and have problems. Arch support is the main issue. I have boots by El Dorado, Justin and Durango, but the most comfortable are a pair of not-quite-crushers with the name "Sage" on the sole. I bought them on sale for a silly low price in Boot Corral in Goodlettsville TN a few years ago and I practically live in them. They now look satisfyingly tatty and consequently possess a certain degree of cred!

But even these aren't as comfy as a cheapo pair of suede work boots - don't recall the brand - that I bought on 2nd Ave N. in Nashville in '98. Sadly they were destroyed in a house fire later that year and I've never managed to find the same ones again.

been a cowboy at heart since 1956 (3yrs old) due to rogers/autry westerns on tv. and, have been wearing boots most of the time since... some friends even call me "boots" as a nickname.

nothing special. even dingo's in the 60's and 70'. i used to wear squared toe but now the softer pointed seem cool. i love beige but also black and dark brown. have 2 pairs for variety and im thinking about a third that i'll probably pick up from a local tack shop.

in fact, im wearing a pair of 30 year old beige ones right now. beat up and stained but comfortable as hell. resoled a few times, too.

ive always loved and preferred playing guitar in boots. now i often play in sandals or barefooted due to the nature of our show, but once winter hits... im in boots and Hawaiian shirts. im thinking about wearing them with shorts, this summer. kinda like jerry jeff's song/album "cowboy boots and baithing suits."

its a bold move but, i need to do something bold...

imho.
