I still can't get over how badass you are. Also it may be smart to ask the people running the local western pleasure classes to see if you can have exceptions. They will probably be understanding.

Now that I'm ona computer, I can post a pic.

I wouldn't use them for everyday riding without checking the sole first - the sole might not be suitable for stirrups. But in a controlled setting like a show, they should work just fine. If you go with a well known brand, like Harley Davidson or... well, that's the only brand I know, LOL -- anyway, a well known brand should hold up fine.

I was thinking of those harness motorcycle boots. A lot of Western boots look real similar to them:

Edited to add: The above boots are the "El Paso" model of Harley Davidson, and they come in a size 18! They also have black boots.

Might be worth it to look at Blundstones. I just checked their website but they didn't have any sizing information that I could find. Although it's getting late and my mind is foggy, so who knows. You could try contacting the company. And they aren't too expensive, running at under $200.
