Cowboy boots are an investment piece for many, so it is important to know when a pair is worth the splurge, or when they just aren’t the right boot for the price. While it’s true sometimes even the best brands of boots go on sale, that is not always the case, and many times the most revered brands of boots rarely ever go on sale. Regardless, there are some things to be on the lookout for when you are boot shopping to help you determine if a pair is a wise purchase or not.
Smell them. A good pair of boots will be made of full-grain leather, not the lower grade leather or synthetic. High quality leather helps your foot breathe, and they are built to last with strong, durable leather. There is no mistaking the smell of quality leather, so go ahead and breathe them in as a test.
Check out the stitching. High-end boots have a level of craftsmanship that, quite frankly, costs money. With hand-stitched design that is impeccable and perfect, you are looking for a high-quality boot that you aren’t going to find in a bargain bin.
Are the soles heavy? The soles should be supportive and made of heavy materials that hug your feed and offer comfort. Outer soles durable, inner soles, padded for long term wear.
While these are only a couple of the criteria you should check when buying boots, these tips are some of the most important when it comes to deciding if a pair of boots is a wise buy, or a waste of time.
