Riding Boots

What brand of riding boots (western) do you have?

I have this pair of durango boots; https://bootandtack.com/Scripts/prod...?idProduct=466 and love them.

Does anybody have ariat fatbaby's? I tried on a pair when I got those and didnt like the sole as much. But am thinking about getting a pair of them? What are your guy's opinions on them?

I buy the fairly inexpensive ones (durango) at the feed store for just daily farm work. I wear them out pretty fast. I have a pair of Tony Lama's for good.

My Tony Lama's look just like this

I have a friend who tried the Fat baby's and hated them.

I'm looking to get a pair of the Ariat's paddock boots. The fat baby's look too clunky to me. I like to be able to feel the stirrup through the sole of my boot.

I tried on the fatbaby's at the store and the sole was huge. And there was way too much tread on them to be safe in the stirrups in my opinion. I havent tried the justin gypsy boots, but I like them. Right now i am pretty satisfied with my durango's but doesnt hurt to have an extra pair. =]

I have a pair of Justin's that weren't terribly expensive and have been very comfortable.
