Well, I'm not proud of how much I spent, but I got a pair of boots today. They're Ariats with a square toe (but not a wide square toe). They're super comfy. The shaft goes halfway up my calf, but isn't too tight at all.
I paid $180 for the boots, then I bought boot conditioner and tall boot socks, so all told I spent $240. I also signed up for Boot Barn Rewards. For every dollar you spend, you get a point. At 250 points, you get a $15 in-store credit. They automatically give you 50 points for joining and 50 points for providing your email address, so just today I got 338 points and my $15 in-store credit (but it won't show up until next week). I also took the online survey and got a $5 coupon, so next time I go in, I have $20 toward my purchase (hoping to find a good show shirt).
These are the boots I got, in Sassy Brown: Cowboy Boots Tombstone - Ariat
Aaaaand I just realized they're the same ones you have, franknbeans!! Lol. Totally not planned. Just went with what was comfortable. Can't do the wide square toes or big round toes, and can't fit my feet into the more pointy toes. Posted via Mobile Device
