    I bought cowboy boots to wear on stage a long time ago, and lived in them for a long time thereafter. Real real comfortable.

    I grew up on a cattle ranch. I've worn them all my life.....both work boots and dress boots.

    Have a pair for dress up. My old arthritic knees, and banged up feet like tennis shoes.

    I had a nice pair in high school and another pair when I was in my late 20's or early 30's. I like the look, but I can't wear them anymore. The last time I rode horses for any length of time, I wore running shoes.

    I have one pair of dress black ones I wear a good bit in cold weather, but my fav boots are some broken in paratrooper style, with the side zippers.
    When spring arrives no more boots for me. Too dang hot.

    I wear my Dan Post boots at every opportunity, which is to say every day.

    I love them. My feet are flat as a ducks and cowboy boots give them great support. Got a couple good beaver hats too; when it rains it's like being under a tarp.

    I wear a pair of Justin's when I'm out and about. I wouldn't mind getting a dressier pair for when I get sent places for work.

    Yep. I wear 'em every day. Probably started wearing them regularly when I was about five.

    But I have a legitimate excuse. Years ago, when I was young and foolish, I "played cowboy" for several years on a 24,000-acre cattle ranch....everything from gathering, roping, branding, castrating, vaccinating, ear marking, ad infinitum. Trust me...it's a tough way to make a living.

    Volunteered with the U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service for close to fifteen years, packing equipment and supplies into their wilderness trail crews with my pack string. Still own a bunch of horses and mules but basically limit my packing to packing my sons into their deer and elk camps.

    Somebody once said that the toughest decision I had to make everyday was what color of cowboy boots I was going to wear to work that day.:D

    My dad wears them to work every day. He's working his retirement job at 76 years old as a warehouse operations manager. Even helps loading trucks when needed while wearing them.

    Yep, boots very regularly. Most comfortable footwear I own. Generally Justin brand. Here's my favorites--a pair of full-quill ostrich ropers on which I have gone through 4 sets of soles and heels.

    Yeah... I've got some Cowboy boots....
    Found Justin to seem most comfortable for my feet, back in the day. Don't wear 'em as much as I used to ... but hope to start them into more frequent rotation someday. I still like a pull-on, no lace boot for street motorcycling....
    Maryland seems less than cowboy boot friendly- with lots of water, slush, ice in the cold seasons and lots of stifling humidity and heat in the warm seasons....

    Slightly off-topic: Have any of you guys who are more experienced with regular wearing of them ever done the new boot routine where you wear 'em in a creek, or submerge your feet in a tub, and wear 'em around for a day?
    That old story seems to persist. The idea being that once the wet leather boot forms to your feet, and then later dries, you end up with a more comfortable, custom fit.
    I've alwayse worried that I'd destroy the new boot, ... or suffer some other disaster. Not to mention, not being an actual outdoor working ranch hand.... there are limited areas where squishing around in soggy boots for hours would seem convenient...
