I don't blame you for not wanting to ride in crepe or rubber soles!
I have some Boulets that I have been riding in for three years that I am just now going to send in to get resoled. I was surprised how long they have held up. Leather soles, roper heel, square toe and when I bought them I think I paid about $170. But my hubby has a pair and he hates them, says they hurt his feet to ride in them and another friend has said the same. But I love mine and have no issues with them.
I also have a pair of boots made by Resistol(I didn't know they made boots), leather sole, square toe and roper heel that I have ridden in a few times, they are mostly my town boots but they are good to ride in. I got them on sale for $120, can't remember what the original price was.
Anderson Bean, I have a pair leather soles, square toe and a riding/walking heel(not too high or underslung) I think those were spendier though($350?) I wear those to town and for shows.
I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.
