February 17, 2006, Newsletter Issue #164: Give Expensive Boots the Boot!

Tip of the Week

Boots are one of the most important elements of western apparel. Keep in mind, however, that only the toe of your boots will be exposed when you are riding so go for sensible over elaborate.

Selecting simple show boots can save you a pretty penny. Keep in mind how your boot will appear when it peeks out from underneath your chaps, through the wide stirrup, and next to your animal's shoulder. For appearance purposes, this is the only part of the boot you need to think about.

A straightforward roper style boot with a low top, semi-rounded toe, and leather soles is the best showing boot out there. They are safe in the stirrups, they look nice under the chaps, and they donít have a big price tag. And, since these boots are so popular, they come in countless colors, leathers, and prices. Don't spend to much of your time and money indulging in fancy-schmancy show boots because they barely get seen. Just make sure that toe looks good!
