4 Myths About Cowboy Boots You Ought To Ignore August 23 2019
Whether you own a handmade pair of cowboy boots or are thinking about getting some, there are some myths you might run into. Try not to let these rumors ruin your shopping experience!
Cowboy boots aren’t comfortable
Saying this is like saying that every pair of boots is uncomfortable. The truth is that each pair will fit differently on your feet. Custom, handmade boots are the best option because they can offer you comfort, durability, and quality.
Only cowboys can wear them
Although cowboy boots are the best choice for working cowboys, anyone can enjoy them. Originally, they were common riding boots worn by many people. Today, they can be worn for riding, roping, working, and even for special occasions. If you choose your own styles and colors, they can be made to work for any situation.
Pointed cowboy boots hurt your toes
If you like this style of boot but have had trouble keeping your toes comfortable while trying on each pair, that doesn’t mean the style is bad. Just like with all types of shoes, fit is the most important factor when it comes to comfort. Be sure to get a pair of cowboy boots that fit your feet and you should have no issues with pinched toes.
Heel slipping isn’t supposed to happen
When you buy a new pair of cowboy boots, your heel will slip. You may think that this isn't supposed to happen and that they don’t fit correctly. But, your heel should slip within each boot at least a little bit. After some time, this should feel natural to you. The leather in a new pair needs time to adjust to your feet.
Boots squeak because of mice
This myth is obviously just a tale, but it is interesting. In the past, some have said that it is either a mouse stuck in the heel or a clown in the toe area. The truth to the squeak is that the soft leather used to make the heels and other parts will rub together. The noise doesn’t mean anything is wrong with your boots and can be fixed by rubbing some leather conditioner on the heel.
