For many people, there’s nothing quite like the look of cowboy boots. Next to cowboy hats, western style boots are some of the most recognizable accessories in the world. From western wear retailers to high fashion labels, cowboy boots serve as a staple for many wardrobes.
In addition to being worn for fashion, though, many men and women also like cowboy boots and similar styles for work. But there is much to consider when purchasing western work boots, especially when they will actually be used for labor or other intensive activities.
Back in the 19th century, western wear worn by cowboys was made to protect cowboys from the elements while they worked. Today, however, western style clothes are worn both for their durability and as a fashion statement. Many people love the look of western wear both as a fashion statement and for that same strength that the cowboys of old depended on.
As anyone who knows anything about Texas (or any fan of the Ewing clan of TV’s “Dallas” fame) can attest, in the Lone Star State, family comes first. We build things for the long haul, and teach our kids the values our parents taught us: Work hard, play hard, do everything you do with your own personal style, and when you give your word, keep it.
Maybe that’s why Texan’s are so fond of Twisted X Boots.

Ever have one of those moments when you think you’re dreaming, but you know you’re wide awake? Well, that’s just what happened to me when I got a load of Chihuahua’s floor-to-ceiling shrine of Tin Haul Boots.
Now, I know Tin Haul has a reputation for over-the-top — and come to think of it, across the sole — design, and I’m also well aware they’re some of the best-built boots money can buy.

Some folks, like Chihuahua, tend to place their bets on style, while others, like me, prefer to pour our hard-earned dollars into substance. But with Corral Boots, you never have to sacrifice cowboy style for well-made rancher durability, because all Corral products are created by some of the finest leather craftsmen in the world.
By now, you know that Chicken touts himself as the be-all and end-all authority on all things cowboy. When I do try to get my two cents in from time to time, he never tires of telling me, “You don’t have the sense god gave a rubber-soled boot.”
But I’ve been doing a little reconnoitering of my own, and on closer inspection of some of the fine men’s boots from Ariat, I’ve discovered there’s plenty of sense in a rubber-soled boot. Along with top-of-the-mark Duratread rubber soles (a carbon rubber outsole compound formulated for superior durability and performance that’s built to withstand the harsh acids of the barnyard as well as an extreme range of conditions and temperatures), many of Ariat’s boots feature something called Advanced Torque Stability (ATS®), which is an exclusive technology that ensures ranchers, riggers, and cowboys maximum stability, comfort, and support.
Everyone knows the old saying, “Beauty is only skin deep,” but when it comes to cowboy boots, skin deep is a good thing. A real good thing. Take Cinch boots, for instance. Cinch boot vamps and counter cuts are made of only the finest “top grain” leather from the outer section of hide — the skin.
Silver Jeans has a long history in denim-making. In 1921, the Silver family founded the leather and denim workwear company as Western Glove Works–but Silver Jeans Co. wasn’t founded until 1991, when the family realized that there was a market for high-quality jeans. Luckily for them, they already had 70 years of producing great denim wear under their belts. And their first style of jeans, a unisex pair called the “Frisco,” was soon under the belts of 2 million happy customers.
As someone who spends a lot of time around the barnyard, I have an appreciation for high-quality, classic Western apparel. I need denim that can stand up to my working chicken lifestyle, and Ariat Jeans meet my standards. First, Ariat products were created with the high-performance athlete in mind, which is right up my alley as a pro Chihuahua wrangler. Second, their jeans are made well, and I dig their practical, “no nonsense” style.
