    SailorGriz, How about trying the packer boots. Lace up, somewhat smooth sole, heel to prevent your foot from slipping forward. Probably work for rock crawling as well.

    I ride in a pair of Ariat's. They are pretty darn beat up looking now - they have been hosed off, gone through poop, mud and all kinds of stuff so they aren't fancy looking. They are comfortable enough but I wouldn't climb rocks or anything else in them.

    I am going to check out the kinds y'all talked about. I need a new pair to ride in!

    I've rode in Ariat all my life and have had very few problems with them.

    If you don't want to purchase a pair of cowboy boots, check out these. They are super comfortable and I had a similar pair that lasted me a few years until I grew out of them.

    Justins do not seem as comfortable to me, but that is just a personal preference thing. Both brands are perfectly acceptable for riding, and either one would work.

    Tennessee, I like those!!! I would like to get something besides cowboy boots - my right instep is HIGH and I can't wear certain boots because they are too tight.

    Agreed. I have a pair I bought as hiking boots, but the smooth sole, high heel and strong support make them good for riding...just a bit heavy.

    I use Roper sneakers for scrambling around stuff and riding as well. (Mens Kiltie Style Horseshoe Roper (Equine - Apparel Footwear - Mens - Footwear))

    Packer boots look like a good option. Never heard the term so I had to google it. I'll look for some when I'm in the market in a few months! Thanks!
