where online to buy western boots

I wasn't sure where to put this, so moderators, if I have mis-categorized it please feel free to move it!

Western riding people, I need to know who has good prices on boots. I ride english so I don't really have a clue. A friend and I are taking a line dancing class, and she needs/wants boots. (I already have some that are a hand-me-down from my aunt.) The places around here that have western boots mostly all have prices around $100 and up, and she's hoping to spend more like $50-60. It's something she's only going to wear once or twice a week for line dancing so she doesn't want to drop lots of money on a pair.

I think a fashion outlet would have "cowboy" boots for that price. But , they wouldn't be of a quality that you could ride in them. Like maybe Zappos.com
if you can afford it, buy some Ariats. They last forever, look nice and you can ride in them.

check out this page fro Zappos

I've had good service thru Sheplers, but I don't think I've paid less than $100 for a new pair of boots...

She's not a rider, so she definitely doesn't need an actual riding boot. I don't know why I didn't think of someplace like Zappos. DUH!

I would not suggest buying a first pair of cowboy boots on line. As you do not know how they fit. I personally do not like buying boots on line as I want to try them on unless I have already have a pair of that brand.

If you are looking for just a cheap pair of Cowboy boots you should look at TSC. They have them and I would consider them cheap boots.

Yeah justins are cheap. I see that you are in Michigan. There is a place called toms western store in Ovid. They have a huge selection of cowboy boots. They have everything from top of the line ariats to good looking clearance. I got a cute pair of ankle boots for $40. They were awesome!

Just bought a pair of Justin ropers online at Bootbay.com. Good prices. On the other hand, fitting boots online can be tricky.

Target has some 'western boots', but the leather and soles are very cheaply made. If you can, I would defiantly invest in some Ariats, they are super comfortable, and the soles last forever. I have arait brand dress boots, riding boots, and everyday 'working' boots. They are my favorite, and I have been wearing only Ariats for 5 years now.

I agree with not buying that first pair online. I would suggest she go to a store that sells them so that she can know exactly what style/size is going to fit her best and be the most comfortable.

Just for a bit of an example, in one brand/style, I wear a size 7.5 with a EE width. In another brand/style, I wear a size 8 with a B width. So, unless you already know the size and style that she needs, she'll definitely need to try them on first.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
