One thing that we hear from our customers is how great our collection of men's cowboy boots is. We carry a huge selection of all different styles, and the main reason we do this is because we want you to be able to find exactly what you are looking for. We have all of the big named manufacturers available to ensure the boots you order are of the highest quality.
Some of our more popular brands you may be familiar with are mens Twisted X boots, mens Stetson boots, and mens John Deere boots, but those are just a few of the many different choices you have. Some of the boots are strictly work boots that are perfect for the every day wear and tear that real cowboys put their boots through, while others are for just wearing while you're out on the town. It doesn't matter which type you finally decide on, we guarantee that you will absolutely love them.
Let us give you a break down of what all makes up your mens cowboy boots:
-First, let us start with the toe box. Whenever you see this being used, it is referring to the piece of material that is in the toe of the boot and it is mainly for providing protection, while also reinforcing the shape of the boot's toe.
-The second mens cowboy boot lingo you need to know is the upper or vamp. What these are referring to are the encasing around your foot. It starts at the sole upwards and surrounds your foot.
-Then you have the saddle. It is an extra cover or layer that is on the vamp of the boot in order to help minimize the boot's stretch throughout the arch of the foot.
-Next, you have the shaft. It is the area of the cowboy boot that covers your calf. This section of the boot can be made from many different materials and also has a wide range of heights and shapes that are available.
-Boot tabs are on the right and left sides of the boot shafts and you will find that the leather pieces are stitched on to the shafts so that the boot can be easily pulled on to your foot. This ensures that you won't have a problem sliding your boots on or off after a long work day.
-Whenever you see heel rand, or spur ridges, this is referring to the extensions that are on the heel and sole which are past the boot's outer side so you can attach a spur.
-The insole, or sometimes called the foot-bed, is what your feet are actually standing on in the inside of the boot. These can be customized to your specific needs, or they also come in some of the most popular brands. You will find that they are crafted out of many different materials, some natural and some are man-made.
-The final cowboy boot lingo you may see throughout our site is the sole or out-sole. This is referring to the bottom area of the boot, the area that is actually touching the ground when you are walking. This section is made out of a wide range of many different materials, such as rubber, leather, cork, foam, and sometimes you will even find them being manufactured out of plastics.
