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’.

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.

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.
