What To Look For When Buying Custom Cowboy Boots July 18 2019
Where to find custom cowboy boots
Before you can buy new working boots, you should know where to find them. You can look in stores and online, but your custom options may be limited to websites. Before you choose a site to order from, be sure that you can trust the quality. Look at reviews and ratings as well as social media accounts to find out about the products they have made. You should be able to see pictures of customers’ orders with their reviews.
Start with the shape
If you have gone with an online store to order your cowboy boots, there should be examples available to view. Check out the shape first. They should look good and have clean lines and should also be able to stay up on their own. Handmade custom boots allow you to have more options when it comes to shape. Popular choices include edge design, toe shape, top height, and heel height.
Look at the materials next
When it comes to custom cowboy boots, one thing you may already know to look for is having a choice of material. Some of the most chosen options include tanned leather. The texture should also be an option for your custom working boots. Roughout and regular, smooth textures are popular choices. The heels should be made of stacked leather, not plastic, for durability and repairability.
Verify the boots will fit you
Ordering any type of shoe online can be daunting because you may not be sure of a proper fit. Sometimes boots from a store fit just fine, while at other times you may need to have them stretched. With custom options, you should be able to get them fitted, even online. You can be sure that your cowboy boots will fit right the minute you open them with a sizing kit. If a store does not offer this and you feel you need one, choose a different store.
Make sure the boots come in a variety of colors
Custom cowboy boots should fit your style, not just your feet. Some online stores offer simple colors like blacks, browns, and grays. Others offer brighter colors to match more styles. You should be able to choose colors for the top of the shoes as well as the tongue and any stitching designs.
Look at the overall craftmanship
Although you won’t be able to handle any boots that the designer has previously created, you should be able to see quality from images. If there is an image gallery on their website, view some examples there or take a look at their social media. Look at all of the stitching and seams to ensure there are no rough or loose ends. If the boots are handmade, there should be no glue showing or odd bulges sticking out anywhere on them. Finally, they should look polished and well-finished.
