Cowboy Boots and everything that comes with them!

There are sooo many kinds of cowboy boots out there now. I think the trend right now are square toes with designs on them. I think they are pretty cool for dressing up or a big rodeo, but not for every day use. What do you think? What kinds of boots do you have?


and another thing I would like input on:

How do you get your boots to fit UNDER your jeans? What types of jeans/boots look best worn that way? I have yet to find a pair of jeans that I can wear my boots under and it's making me mad, lol. Is there a secret I've missed out on?

I think boots are a matter of preference. I prefer practicality to bling. I wear lace up ariats for daily working around the barn, riding, training, going to the feed store. I have a pair of pull on ariats that have some stitching on them I try and keep them for when I compete, or want a nicer pair to go to town in. I am pretty basic in my needs.

My friend on the other hand has more boots then one person needs from work boots to a pair to coordinate with every outfit.

As far as jeans you need boot cut jeans to fit over your boots.

I honestly hate the square and snip toe trend, i'm old fashioned and like my rounded or pointed toe boots with a riding heel. I refuse to wear anything else.

My work boots are pretty boring and i've been searching for going out boots for well over two years. Try having a 5 1/2 or 6 foot in womens with a ridiculously narrow heel AND be picky. I have even had bootts custom made twice in the last year that I was refunded for because they didn't fit.

You just need to look for bootcut or straight leg jeans and your boot will fit under them fine.

All I wear is bootcut jeans. You can always see the top of my boot though :( Maybe I'm built funny.

Get longer jeans. When I don't have boots on my jeans cover my feet, and even with boots my jeans drag on the ground. I am 5'5", I buy jeans in long and have no problem with them coming up over my jeans. I get them at Walmart, nothing special just long boot cut or straight leg jeans.

All my jeans are like that too. :( It seems like it's more of a width problem, but the next step up for jeans would be bell bottoms...no.

Back in the day (once upon a time, a long, long time ago ) when I actually used a horse for work the cowboy boots were the second casualty of what I wore (meaning the second item I stopped using). Tight jeans were the first . I still owned a couple of pair (come to think of it I still do....somewhere in my closet....with my other unused pair of riding boots), but I switched to something more functional and versatile that served a working rider's purposes much better..... i.e. I started wearing a pair of my dad's old combat boots (today I wear my old combat boots)

They're always going to be bigger and stronger so you better always be smarter. (One of my grandfather's many pearls of wisdom)

I have square toed boots. Ariats with blue stitching. I absolutely HATE pointy toed boots, I think they look absolutely silly (I'm not an elf, thanks) and I really wish I had a pair of round toed... But, I'm really picky about my boots because prior to owning a horse I could never imagine myself wearing cowboy boots. I like them black, with minimal design (if any) and no pointy toes, and it works awesome for me. The only reason I REALLY wanted a pair was A) no tread for safer riding in stirrups and B) I could just slide them on. When you live in a dorm and have to put on and take off shoes multiple times per day that was AWESOME.

Aaaand now they're so comfy I wear them as my normal footwear except in the winter. As for clothing, I just go out in whatever clothed I happen to have on that day!

I like a rounded toe. Depends on the jeans, the modern styles, like skinny ones, and even some bootleg, are too narrow to fit over. Just wear your boots when you go try on jeans

To me though, they're still a fashion thing. There are more comfortable boots for riding out there (in my experience).

Does anyone think that the 8" "gypsy" boots fit better under jeans? I've never had a pair of those. I'm thinking about going to TSC and trying on a pair and see if they look any different.
