I have owned a lot of different brands and I have to say I LOVED my Twisted X Barn Burners. (1st photo)

I also really loved my tony lama (2nd photo), ariat (3rd & 4th photo), and my current boots are durango (5th photo - first time having/using this brand but I love them).

The only boots out there that I am 100% not a fan of is Justin.....they did not last long for me, but I do really enjoy Justin equine products (some of the best bell boots I have ever used).

Let me know if you are interested in any of these boots and I will get you the style info.

I suppose you could do the usual things you do to leather to increase its water resistance, but I've been wearing the same pair of Ariat ropers (style 35601, black, very basic, discontinued a long time ago) for going on 11 years now and the only thing I've had to do is polish them, superglue a spot where the sole was trying to come off and change out the insoles.

The heels are a little worn but the rubber soles themselves aren't near to wearing through and I've never had a problem with water getting through them (on the other hand, I don't go traipsing through creeks while wearing them either ).

I'm starting to think these boots will outlive me.

I love the ariat Fat Babies. Congrats on getting yours to last 6 years! lol. I wear mine almost every single day, and they're worn out in about 1 year and are made into "riding boots", and I have to get a new pair to wear to work at my office every day. You should be able to find them at your local western store, or you can ALWAYS find them online (I like to shop at or using PayPal to pay for items).

Ariat Fatbabies are amazing! I bought my mom a pair for Christmas and one day I slipped them on to run to the barn quick. Needless to say I went online and ordered myself a pair the next day! They are really comfy and come in cool colors!

Nocona. Everyone said Ariats were great, so I tried them...soooo not impressed. Went back to Nocona. For ground work, I use Horseshoes by Roper....nothing can beat their comfort but the sole isn't slick and they don't come w a high "underslung heal" - so not my personal preference for riding.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I got a pair of Ariat Terrain Lace and sprayed waterproofing stuff on them. They are really comfortable! I could walk and/or ride in them all day!
