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.

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’.

4 Romantic Western Movies to Watch This Weekend.

Happy Valentine’s Week!

In honor of the love celebration taking place on Sunday, we’re giving you 4 romantic western/cowboy movies we love. I’m sure you have already purchased your significant other their gift, and if you have not then hop over to our website and get them a gift that will keep on giving for a few months.

We’ll give you a tiny synopsis just to peak your interest, but no worries, we promise no spoilers!

Giant

I mean, just a classic. The movie covers the story of two generations in a ranch in Texas, therefore it spans through decades and lasts over 3 hours. There’s love, there’s conflict, there’s death. You really can’t ask for much more.

The Man from the Snowy River

Maybe it’s the awesome theme song of the movie, maybe it’s that scene where Jessica runs to the fence in excitement in her full skirt and boots when she hears the horses coming, maybe it’s the fact that my dad and brother watched this movie over and over and over again while I was growing up in the 90s, but this movie is just good. Predictable? yes, but really what movie isn’t.

Anyways, in this Australian film Jim is forced to find a job to help him get his father’s ranch back on its feet, and during him and the girl he wishes to marry become involved in a 20 year old family feud. Kinda like Romeo and Juliet but with cowboy hats and hot Australian accents.

The Horse Whisperer

This sort of seems like your typical city girl meets country boy movie, but there is definitely more than that. Though there is a sort of love story in this plot, I would say that the bigger love story is that between the family and their horse. After a traumatic accident a family is encouraged to put down a horse that will likely never recover, but they refuse to do so without trying every last resort. Be prepared to feel the strong urge to run out to your barn and give your horse the biggest hug.

The Last Ride

This is a Nicolas Sparks movie and I feel like saying that is spoiler enough because most of his movies are the same, so I’ll leave it at that.

Now you have some good titles to cuddle up to on the couch after dinner this Sunday.

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.

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.
