Bridal Boots

Wearing cowboy boots with your wedding dress is a trend that has stuck for a while now. It’s no longer a novelty like it used to be, but it is still a gorgeous and smart choice for many women. Below we suggest some options for the big day.

Your Something blue

Wearing boots that are all blue or just have small blue details are a really fun way to incorporate your something blue into your bridal ensemble. The color can be as strong or soft as you’d like to match the style of your dress or wedding.

Delicate and Romantic

If you’re looking for a more delicate or romantic look, you can always opt for elegantly embellished boots, or boots in softer materials or colors, like white, cream, light pink . The Corral boots below are very soft and would be a good compliment to a wedding dress.

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 😉

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.

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.

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.

 

Twisted X Marks the Spot for Texas Family Boot Values

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.

Living the Dream in Tin Haul 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.

Corral Boots: Real Cowboy Boots Right off the Ranch

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.

Classic Style Meets Modern Technology in Ariat Boots for Men

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.
