Breast Cancer Awareness/Tin Haul Shoes

October is Breast Awareness Month which is a time to aid women who are suffering from breast cancer now by contributing help and giving them hope by early detection, education and support from both medical staff and family/friends.

 

Breast cancer is one of the leading cancers for women in the United States. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed sometime in the future.* And while there is no known cure, many professionals such as scientists and doctors are researching for a concrete result but it is still critical for women and also men to be critical of its early stages.

 

Urban Western Wear wants to share their gratitude and support Breast Cancer Awareness. By promoting two popular and vibrant shoes that are not solely helpful to flaunt your self-esteem and confidence, you can share their own gratitude by extolling the women fighting this disease and holding their heads up high to continue on with their lives with such happiness.

 

The Tin Haul’s Courage boots, featuring its exemplary Obvious Soles, are made comfortable by their cushioned insole, double welt and leather walking heel. These 13” leather-lined handmade boots have a wide square toe and its vamp has a brown wingtip.

 

This vertically-stitched shaft has ‘COURAGE’ on its side as each shoe sole has a ninja with the phrase ‘Kick Cancer’. The right heel has a cancer symbol with the word ‘courage’ and the left heel has the phrase ‘Unite in the Fight’.

 

The Women’s Tin Haul Boots Hope incorporate its “Hope” embroidery on the 13’’ distressed leather shaft and feature a brown boot pulls to contrast its hot pink embroidery. The brown vamp is lauded as its design has unique flair of design with its malleable tattooesque markings.

 

These cowboy boots blend a mixture of traditional features of wide square toe, double stitch welts and easy walking heels, but with an urban stroke. Its cushioned insole and leather lining boosts your self-esteem by flaunting your confidence and aggressiveness without disrupting your day by causing havoc on your feet.

 

These stimulating footwear will get every customer to spread the word behind not solely its customary design but also its novelty outsole supporting the Tin Haul tradesmark. Its beautiful outsole inlay of “Hope for the fighters, peace for the survivors” has decadent white font over a hot pink backdrop to illustrate the virtue of hope that will extol commendation to the person purchasing the dazzling duo of boots.

Tin Haul’s Top 4 His and Hers Boots

Tin Haul has mastered His and Hers boots, in our humble opinion, of course. Ever since the inception of the original sharky boot, Tin Haul has done an excellent job in listening to their consumer and delivering exactly what they ask for. Below we’re reviewing the top 4 His and Hers  boots that Tin Haul has offered us.

Shark Boots

Of course this is our top 1. The men’s version of this boot was so successful that a women’s version was soon under planning. This style features a slightly darker leather, and a more feminine, but equally edgy shark. Beyond that, the only other difference is the soles. While the men’s version displays an attractive woman in a dirndl offering up a beer, the women’s version ready “Man Eater” in a pink background.

Patriotic

Perfect to show your American Pride, Tin Haul created Freedom and American Woman. The design is almost identical with a United States of America Flag motif on the top, which the women’s version has a tint of pink on it. The boot’s soles are different with the men’s showing tags that read “Fredom isn’t Free” and the women’s “Shoot like a Woman” but despite this difference, both boots scream “I Love America.”

Christian Themed

One of the all time favorite boots is Between Two Thieves. This are the only boots, as of now, that are identical for both men and women, and we can see why. This boot’s design is simply perfect, so there was no reason to make any changes at all. The tan and white top design features some crosses and the soles read “John 3:16, For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Last year Tin Haul launched the men’s boot “Ichthys Aroundus” and it became instantly popular. Tin Haul listened to its consumers as many asked for a women’s version of it and has now released “I Believe” coming out in June of this year. While both styles read “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” on the sole and have a very similar design, the women’s version color is a tad deeper.

I Love Vegas

Tin Haul has relaunched a new version of their famous Vegas Boots and now in matching men and women’s styles. Both styles feature the iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign on the soles, and a set of card on the toe. The women’s version has a metallic sheen to it with some swirly design on the shaft, and the men’s design is a bit more subtle, but they’re still a great match. They’re loud, they’re fun, and they will hopefully bring you some luck 😉

Dusty Rocker Boots, taking versatility to a whole new level.

Have you ever spent a long time trying to come up with your outfit and thinking you really want to wear this one shirt, but it only goes with those other boots, when you really wish you could this pair because it is so incredibly comfy, but you want your outfit to match? You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? Well, we may have your solution.

We have recently introduced to our selection Dusty Rocker Boots, a collection of all leather cowboy boots with interchangeable inlays. Dusty Rocker boots usually come in either black or brown, but have cutout designs throughout that give you a peek at the easily interchangeable inlay that allows you to change for whatever color you may be feeling that day.

It’s super easy. Each boot has a small zippered pocket on both, front and back shaft. To change out the inlays you simply open a zipper and slide in whichever inlay you want at that time. Heck, they don’t even have to be the same color!  You can mix and match and be as creative as you’d like. We’ve seen some awesome combinations to show school spirit or support for professional sports teams; just a good tip.

From the same company that produces Dusty Rocker we have also introduced Broken T Boots. While this brand doesn’t offer the option to change out the colors in your boots, it does offer men,  women, and kid’s styles in high quality leathers and fun designs. For men, this brand includes some exotics at great prices. For women, aside from the traditional cowboy boot, Broken T also offers a line of more fashionable boots ranging from riding boots to booties. Regardless of what style you pick, all Broken T Boots are incredibly soft. It’s like they’re already broken in. Get it?

Just like Urban Western Wear, Dusty Rocker and Broken T Boots are a small, family owned company based out of Texas. Their hearts and souls go into the brand to ensure you receive a high quality and affordable product that you will be satisfied with.

The Rodeo Bucket List

Rodeos in Texas are not purely entertainment but they are part of its Texan heritage for people gathering to either make or relive some memories. However, it is a part of a criteria in your life that involves you buying boots and feeling like a cowboy for a day or for a weekend. If you want to experience a rodeo and have a great time with others, here are my three selected events that I highly recommend for you to go at least once in your lifetime:

 

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo

 

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is the massive, three-week extravaganza that consists of bull-riding, bronco riding, roping, rodeo fair rides, a petting zoo and concerts, ranging from your favorite country artists to rock n’ roll bands to the Latino band groups.  Its attendance has topped around 2.5 million people each year as participants can head out to solely have a good time to relax and enjoy the BBQ and experience a taste of the ranch life. This annual rodeo in March are held at NRG Stadium, while the fair and other events are held in the parking lot and several nearby buildings.

 

San Antonio Rodeo and Stock Show

 

When founded in 1950, the San Antonio Rodeo and Stock Show is one of the most popular and events in the country, which attracts a million people annually. The organization that hold the event supports Texas youth education and agriculture and most of the expenses go to scholarships, grants, awards that benefit the great young minds of today. As this rodeo has its events such as bull riding, saddle bronc riding and team roping, there is an event for kids in which they have to ride a sheep for at least six seconds and a Horse Education Center to provide expert tips to take care of a horse. The musical concerts range from your favorite country artists like Reba McEntire to the occasional rock n’roll bands such as Journey to please your sights and ears.

 

Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo

 

This Austin-based event has the standard rodeo events but the Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo has competitive events such as pig races, a youth art show and a barbecue cook-off. The family-friendly event offers something for everyone as this rodeo offers Austin’s largest carnival complete with rides, games and fair food favorites. Even for its rodeo events, the two top-tier athletes travel to the rodeo to compete against each other for the coveted title of Champion. Fans can enjoy a fun time but also can enjoy an action-packed competition full of bull-riding and Mutton Bustin’.

Pig Man, Boots and Valentine’s Day

If your significant other likes hunting, chances are you’ve heard of Pig Man. If you don’t hunt, chances also are that you pretend to know what he or she is talking about and nod a lot while he or she tells you all about it. There’s no better gift than to be able to share in something your significant other likes, except maybe some kickass boots but we’ll get to those later. With Valentine’s around the corner, our gift to you today is a quick guide to Pig Man and his greatness, so you can stop nodding along and feigning interest.

Pig Man? What?

His real name is Brian Quaca, but Pig Man is catchy and really cool. He’s been Pig Man photo shoot - March 2014 Brian Quaca. For TV.hunting his whole life, but since a young age showed a passion, talent and concern for the issue that were non-indigenous pigs in central Texas, where he grew up. Despite being an avid hunter of many species, pigs became his forte and as neighbors began enlisting his help with their pig problems, he earned the nickname of Pig Man.

Is that it? 

No, not even close. It was his concern for this problem plaguing his hometown that led him to become a rifle smith. He was pretty good at it. Are you noticing a pattern yet?

His excellent skills as a riffle smith led people to ask him to lead their hunts, where they witnessed first hand yet another thing he was great at. Eventually, leading hunts became his primary job and his popularity earned him guest spots in a few tv shows before he was offered his very own show.
The popularity of his own tv show stretched throughout industries, from hunting gear to ready to
wear. He famously wore Tin Haul’s best selling boot “Gnarly Shark,” which sent the boot’s demandthrough the roof!  So much, that Tin Haul made and named the “Not Boaring” boot after him. Seriously, how cool is that?! (These boots are still available and are the perfect gift to any Pig Man aficionado, by the 41257_10395disp14238_30535dispway.)

 

 

 

 

 

At the end of 2014 Pig Man was critically injured in a car accident that left him with multiple skull fractures, severe facial lacerations, cracked ribs, a broken wrist, bleeding on the brain and major damage to his right eye. Despite what some would consider career ending injuries, Pig Man managed to make a come back, like a real one not like the Backstreet Boys’ kind, and is back on top. In June 2015 a two episode special “Pigman Rising” aired on the Sportsman Channel narrating his road back to recovery.

What does this have to do with Valentine’s day?

Oh yeah, that’s where we were going with this. A lot.

4357_28741disp
First, if that special one is a Pig Man fan we have the
perfect gift for them. You can choose from the Gnarly Shark, the Not Boaring, or any other Tin Haul Boots really, since Brian does wear the brand regularly. What about for women? The Gnarly Pink Shark!

 

 

Most importantly, all new Pig Man episodes premiere on February 14th on Sportsman Channel, so make that a part of your Valentine’s Day plans and surprise them with all you’ve learned about Pig Man with this quick guide. During commercials, of course.

Want to learn some more? Catch up with Brian on the official Pig Man Facebook, twitter, or watch some of his videos on his YouTube Channel.

Travel in Style

Between the holidays, NFR, and all the upcoming world renowned Rodeos, including our very own Houston Livestock Show, the very last and very first months of the year are pretty busy traveling months for many.

Keeping your clothes and boots looking sharp after spending so many hours in luggage can be challenging. Some people feel limited to the amount of boots they can travel with because boots and hats are not the easiest to pack, but that should never keep you from traveling in style.

Today we’re sharing some of our best tips on how to pack to best maximize your luggage space and ensure nothing stops you from taking your favorite pieces with you.

Packing Clothes:

Nothing dampers your travel spirit like opening your luggage upon arrival and finding your previously neatly ironed shirts and jeans completely wrinkled. The best way to pack clothing to prevent ruining your freshly ironed items is to roll them. Fold shirts and jeans like you normally would, but once they are folded, slowly and carefully roll them and pack them as rolls. This will save space and hopefully help your clothes stay looking sharp.

Packing boots:

If you have a very special pair of boots you would rather carry separately to16685_31573disp
protect them from any scratches or damage, your best bet are boot carriers. Whether you prefer short or tall boots, there are carriers to fill either style. These normally fit only one pair of boots, which guarantees no other items (belts, toiletries, etc) can damage your boots.

If you’re traveling by plane, boot carriers are also a carry on item which can count as your personal item and fit under the front seat.

If boot carriers are not your thing, you can still pack your boots with you. Taking boots inside regular luggage can be tricky because you need to make sure they’re not smashed or they might never recover their shape. A great way to prevent this is to simply pack all your socks and under garments inside your boots. This will guarantee they keep their shape and it will save you some space in your bag. We always suggest you fill your boots up even if in a boot carrier, to prevent them from losing their shape.

Packing hats:

19129Hats are probably the trickiest to travel with. Many people limit themselves to travel only with the hat they’re wearing, but that completely narrows down your options, especially if you’re traveling from a warm climate to a cold climate and viceversa. The best way to pack hats is in a hat carrier. Sure, they’re a little bulky and it might be another piece of luggage to check in, but at least it will ensure your hats will arrive in pristine condition. These are available in single, as well as double capacity, which we prefer because this is one of those situations in which more is more.

Whether you pick some or all of our tips, we hope they help you pack and enjoy your travel, wherever that may be.

Ready for some great news? Here we go!

After months of work and research we are excited to share some great news. Urban Western Wear is proud to announce the launch of Western Wear Crate, our very own western clothing subscription service.

Western Wear Crate is not the first clothing subscription box, but it is the only one that specializes in western wear.

2.- Always free shipping. We ship it to you and you ship it back and we’ll never charge you for it.

3.- Convenient and always made specifically for you. Having items picked out for you does not mean you get things that don’t match your style so that convenience doesn’t mean you have to give up style.

The 5 boot themes that prove Tin Haul has a boot for everyone

Everyone knows Tin Haul for their loud, creative designs that allow you to express yourself. Every inch of a Tin Haul of boot is meticulously designed to match that boot’s designated theme.  And it is precisely these themes that make Tin Haul the boots for everyone.

For the Football Fanatic

Whether he lives for the Friday Night Lights, Football Sundays, or Monday Night Football, these Football Stadium Boots make his love for the game known at every step. The Obvious Soles on this pair show pretty cool football field, but it is actually the design in the front that attracts most of customers. Everyone loves the football lacing details and, in our humble opinions, it’s what makes this whole boot so awesome.

 

 

For the Devout16222

We often get requests for the “Tin Haul Jesus Boot” and our favorite part is answering “which one?” After the insane popularity that the Between Two Thieves Boots had, Tin Haul has continued to make christian themed boots that are always very well received. The most recent styles are Ichthys Aroundus which displays Philipians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” in the obvious sole. In true Tin Haul fashion, even the stitched cross design in the front is made out ichthys symbols.

16215For women, “I love Jesus” was designed in a beautiful blue tone and features john 4:19 “we love him because he first loved us” in the obvious sole.

 

 

 

 

 

16213For the Survivors, the Fighters, and Supporter

There is only one complaint we get regarding the Tin Haul Hope Boot and that is “but why don’t they make it for men too!?” Don’t worry, we always pass that feedback to the Tin Haul team in hopes they start making it one day. The Hope boot is Tin Haul’s effort to raise breast cancer awareness during October, as well as every other day in the year. The obvious sole eloquently reads “Hope for the Fighters, Peace for the Survivors” with an iconic pink ribbon in the background.

 

16218
For the Patriots

American Woman and Freedom boots are for those out there who love their country more than anything else. For the loud patriots who like to scream their love for the american flag at every opportunity, these boots are adorned with the stars and stripes alike. American Woman’s obvious sole reads “Shoot Like a Woman”
because the only thing better than a woman who loves the United States is a woman who loves the United States and can shoot well enough to prove it. 16228

Freedom, the men’s patriotic boot version, can also be sported in support of the troops since the sole design is a dog tag inscribed with the words “Freedom isn’t Free.”

 

 

 

16219For the 90’s Child

There’s nothing a 90’s child loves more than telling people they’re a 90’s child and Tin Haul is about to save you the words. No longer will you need to figure out how to stealthily drop what era you grew up in during conversation, all you need are the Multicolor Sunflower Boots. Not only are the toes of these awesome boots covered in sunflowers, the most iconic flower in the 90’s, but the obvious sole design is smiley faces. Enough said.
