Favorite Western Boots?

What is everyones favorite boot brand? Why? Personally I love my Laredos. They fit my foot well, I like the toe, as well as the stacked heel. I am sure I could get the exact combination from another make, but hey stick with what you know right?

Well I've only ever had to kind. First was Fat Baby's. I wore them out in a year. Then I got me some Justin's. NEVER in my life will I get them again. I really dislike them. So I got me some more Fat Baby's. They have lasted me quit a while so I have to say Fat Baby's are my Fav out of two that I've ever wore.

I had a pair of fat babys that I liked but I started to like the square toe and not the round toe so I got a pair of Loredo's and they are the worst boots I have EVER owned! I keep riding in them because they are less than 2 months old but they are horrible. My feet get wet fast and they are just cheaply made, I wish I noticed when I first got them.

I have a pair of ariat's that I wear to go dancing in...i might start riding in them..

Ariat FatBaby's. Always bought them, always will. I also have the black FFA pair of Justins, but they do not get worn much.

I have a pair of Ariat Quickdraw square toes that I wear all the time. They are the only boots that I've ever found that are actually comfortable for me to wear for more than a couple of hours. Not to mention that I've had them for over a year and other than a few scrapes and scratches, they don't look used at all. Not too bad considering I wear them to the barn every day and they are actual hard working boots.

I personally dislike square toed and got to a corner and kill cock roach, boots(Pointed boots) I will always stick with round toed boots. Also I've always wanted a pair of Tony Lama's. Not sure if they come in round toed boots, but if not I won't get them.

Haha, I had to go with square toes. My feet are fat and blocky and most women's boots don't fit them, especially round toes. For years, I just suffered through it and stretched them out with water and oil and made do. These are the first ones that don't pinch my feet and cut off circulation to my toes. I didn't like the look of them at first either, but after wearing them for a while, my feet are so happy that I don't care what they look like anymore.

Im the same as smrobs! My round toes Ariats that I wore took me a good year of blistered feet to make them work...now they are like slippers. The squared toed are the only boots that I've been able to put on and wear all day and not be sore that night!

I have these: Cowboy Boots Heritage Western R Toe - Ariat

I have to have R toe (the pointy ones) because my feet never get wide at the ball. They get a bit narrower at my heel, but otherwise, they are the same width. I am also pretty sure I will never wear anything but Ariats. I have super high arches too and Ariats are the only ones I've found that have the inside of the boot conform to the heel, making arch support. I tried on others a couple weeks ago at RCC and they all seemed really flat inside.

I wear my boots all the time. In the summer, I wear them all day and never have sore feet. I want to get them in other colours at some point.

Mine also look brand new after I oil them. Well, the right one does. The left one got ripped in half last summer when I was trotting too close to a fence with my jeans tucked into my boots. The loop at the top caught a washer that was sticking out a little bit and just tore it in half. It was repaired though and is perfectly fine again. Haha. I'm pretty sure any boot would have ripped in half if that happened to it. I had to dismount and try to get it out of the washer. It was definitely stuck in there.

This is what I did. It's all patched up. That piece is sewed back on, then a large untooled, ugly piece over top. Still functional though and still loving them.
