We asked her why she thinks Old West boots are so popular with western wear customers, and threw in some of your own questions while we were at it.
What is the best thing about Old West Boots?
Lindy did not hesitate; “Price point! These are all leather boots, both mens’ and ladies,’ and they come with a leather sole so they can be re-soled. This is just a really nice looking boot. An all leather boot for under $150.00, we sell a ton of them!”
The “Taylor Swift look” is the hottest thing in western/mainstream crossover fashion right now. For someone trying to achieve this look, which Old West boot does Lindy recommend?
“The LF1529 Tan Canyon Fashion or if you want a darker brown color, the LF1534 Brown Canyon Fashion. It has that popular 11” shaft and it’s simple enough that it goes with anything, but has enough western design that it’s not boring.”
What is your most popular womens’ style?
“That Tan Canyon we were just talking about and also the LF1510, which is the same boot in black. The LF1526 Chocolate and Denim with that bluish/turquoise shaft is really popular right now, too.”
Do the adult sizes run true-to-size?
“They are a little narrower than what you find with some other brands. A lot of customers seem to be going about a half-size smaller than with some other popular boots.”
And what about the kids’ sizes?
“Huge! They are actually about one whole size bigger than most others, we recommend trying them about a size smaller than normal.” For kids’ boots she prefers the crepe sole to the PVC. “I just don’t think that hard plastic sole holds up as well.”
There are as many ways to wear Old West boots as there are people who wear them! In the summer we see them with jeans in the evening, with dresses and cutoffs during the day, (that look is usually reserved for the ladies!) covered with dirt and mud working on the ranch, even with a suit or tuxedo.
