Anderson Beans are made in the USA with the exception of their HorsePower line.

I ride in a pair of Wolverine lace up ropers with a steel toe. They are men's boots, they are VERY comfortable, good quality leather, hold up to rain, mud, dry, and being stepped on a few times too.

Totally agree with Ariats!

These are my current pair:
Ariat Brown Tombstone Boot - Wide Square Toe - Sheplers

I will agree that they do run small, but I have wide feet so I'm sure you'll be fine! I like the support that Ariat's have and I could ride for hours in them. They're a great all-around boot. I use them for riding, chores, and I even wore 'em on my date last night. Lol.

I had my last pair of Justin remudas for 4 years, 2 years of heavy daily riding and 2 additional years of not wearing every day, but at long weekend horse shows and other things. I just retired them because the sole was starting to get worn through and leaked during bathing. I started wearing a new pair (same boots) that I had gotten a year after buying the originals, in anticipation that they'd fall apart much quicker than they did. Highly recommended. Super comfy!

I love my Ariats. I've had them for 3 years now and they're barely showing wear and tear (I ride every single day)

I just bought a pair of Ariat Sierra's (#10004986). They're pull on men's western work boot with a roper's toe, so they're not very wide. I actually just measured them, and they are almost the same width as my Ariat Heritage english tall boots. Sole to sole, they are just bare millimeters wider. They have the no slip rubber sole, and they have the required heel to ride in. My pair in particular doesn't have the steel toe or the composite toe, so they aren't super heavy. They are heavier than my Heritage english tall boot, but they weigh about the same as my Dublin River Boots (Irish muck boot knock offs). I actually rode in them for the first time today, and I didn't have any issues with them in english stirrups. Even with the no slip sole, I didn't have issues kicking my stirrups off, and I found them quite (very very super duper) comfortable to ride in.

I'm really happy with the purchase, and cannot wait to finish breaking them in. They be some stiff boots still. I tried on a lot of Justins, because that is what most stores carry. But I find the Ariat brand far superior. They're more comfortable, and I actually found a pair to fit my very difficult to fit foot.

Thank you for the suggestions. I like the look of Ariats, but they are all made in China or Mexico.

I went with a pair of Anderson Beans. They are very sturdy with thick leather uppers and the foot is a thick cowhide, possibly shoulder.

Slip-on boots with leather soles! Crepe soles are the next best

Get a size bigger so they'll come off in a wreck. Most of the people that could testify to this are dead because they got hung in a stirrup. If you don't believe it, next time you ride, step off your horse but leave your left foot in the stirrup. Hop around or fall to the ground with that foot hung and see if your horse stands there and patiently waits for you to correct it, or fends for himself.

I'll go against the grain, I'm not a fan of Ariats. I love my Ariat field boots for english but haven't had good luck with western boots. They don't seem to hold up - I'm rough on boots.

I agree with AC, smooth leather or crepe soles. Ditto on getting them a hair big, I go a 1/2 size big. I wear ropers or pull ons for working at home so should I get caught in a stirrup they will come off.

My hands down favorite maker is Olathe. Also have a pair of Tony Lama's that have held up fairly well for daily work.

I'm not a fan of Ariat's either, though I wish I'd invented the line. They sure are popular.

I much prefer Olathe's. I have two pair. One with 18" tops and a shorter pair for schooling colts.
