Toe Shape Matters When Choosing Custom Cowboy Boots June 22 2020

There’s a lot to consider when designing a pair of custom cowboy boots, including the shape of the toe. Not only does the shape you pick show your personal sense of style, but it can also affect how they fit and feel. If you are planning on getting a new pair of custom cowboy boots, the following can help you choose the right toe shape. 

 

Why does toe shape matter?


The toe shape is not limited to the outside of a cowboy boot. Within the shoe, the component that forms the shape of the toe (and other pieces) is called the last. Lasts are made from 30+ different measurements so they can fit the wearer’s feet perfectly. If your cowboy boots don’t fit correctly, you may feel pain or be unable to do your work properly. 


Different types of cowboy boot toes


As far as style goes, toe shape is vital to showing yours. Some brands name their toe shapes to make them stand out. But, you will see that most shapes are the same throughout the industry. 


Classic 


The actual shape of this style has been debated. Some say it is a long, pointed toe that was original. Others say a rounded toe is the classic shape. A common consensus is that both parties are actually right (in a way). The classic shape is tapered to a rounded point. This allowed the cowboys of the past to easily slip their feet into stirrups. 


Broad-squared


This shape allows the wearer to have the most room for their toes. It is a popular choice for corporate boot makers and small businesses. Those who work on their feet all day or have wider feet can benefit from this forgiving toe shape. These are also versatile with many looks, whether you are dressing for functionality or looks. 


Pointed


This style of cowboy boot toe has been popular since the 1950s, but especially so since the early 2000s. These are typically long and tapered to a sharp point. The shape outside the boot will not affect the point of the toe on the outside and is a fashion statement. 


Rounded


This toe shape also allows for a little more wiggle room. Many western work boots come with this shape, as do ropers. Round toes aren’t the best shape for long rides, but they can work well for walking or wearing casually. 


Squared


Like the pointed toes, the squared toe shape is usually chosen for fashion. It is a fresh take on the classic cowboy boot that has become more popular over the years. It is used for walking and also riding boots, although the shape itself is not made for functionality.
