I wear cowboy boots almost every day and have since I was about 12 (now 27)! Some good ones to try:

Lucchese - always fit me exceptionally! little to no break in time, you will need to be fitted for size though. IF your foot is more on the narrow side you should be happy with the way these fit. The 1883 collection is fabulous! My last 5 pairs (in 5 months) have been from that design line. Zappos has really good styles right now!

Old Gringo - much like Lucchese, but a little "louder" styled so to speak.

Anderson Bean - totally handmade, sizing is iffy though. You'll have to go to their website, (I always google it) to find a retailer as they are B&M only usually. They have some fabulous exotics (ostrich, gator, etc) and you can custom order. They're really big on the square toe which is very in in alot of horse/rodeo/cowboy circles. Personally, I'm over it-it's been about 5-6 yrs of the trend.

Justin - if you want a classic more true cowboy boot, they have some good styles that will last forever.

Frye has good boots that are less "cowboy on the range" that look and wear great as well.

That said, I would not be caught dead in the following: Laredo, Dan Post, etc. They're cheap for a reason! I don't do cheap!

Also, decide on the toe style (pointed, but not too pointed aka roach killers :throwup: - personal fave, square, round - not the best looking, but comfy) you want and the sole (leather or crepe usually). You can find a great looking go with everything boot for around $200-$500. I would start around the $200 end and go from there. Keep in mind, exotic leathers, stitching and handmade or customs cost more. I wouldn't spend a whole lot until you see if you like them and would wear them enough to offset the cost. They look great with most of my wardrobe, but that varies greatly form person to person. Hope this helps!

Try Allen's Boots: http://www.allensboots.com/site/page/pg1736-pn_Cowboy_Boots_and_Western_Wear.html

I have a couple of pairs that were pretty expensive, but you can get some great ones for around $500. These are my next ones - I love traditional tattoo styles - on me and my boots :smile: http://www.allensboots.com/site/page/pg1740-de136-pr4221-as56_80_3208.h

Something to remember is that cowboy boots don't run true to size and you will need to size down with most brands.

I have those and LOVE them! They get tons of compliments from guys and girls both, but guys freakin' totally go nuts about them.

I LOVE Shepler's!

I just got the Pin Up Cowgirl boots! They are stunning!
Did you know, all the designs are outlined in embroidery thread, it's just gorgeous work.
Really really well made!
Such gorgeous leather soles and heels, too ~ oooooooooo
(Really pointy toes!)

Mine are not as light a leather as those in the picture however!
But I love them so much I don't mind

OP, I would go with Zappos if you don't live near any store that you can try on for size.
Their customer service is great, and the return process is good too.

That said, yeah, Lucchese or Old Gringo.....

(Lucchese are narrow)

I do. Frye makes good quality ones.
are you looking to buy actual western boots or just the style? because they are two different things.
You can pick up good quality cheap ones in a lot of shoes stores. I have seen lots of new ones out for spring.

I would like a good quality one but I think I want more of the style than the actual western boots b/c I probably won't get to wear it much (only in the winter and when I visit my bf in TN).

I want a simple pair, probably one tone. My bf wears the ones that are two-toned and it looks great on him but not for me (I think they're Double H). I found one or two that I liked but I wanted second opinions. I'll have to find them.

^^^ Well, then, I would recommend Frye Carson boot.
Check it out on Zappos, comes in lots of colors, and you can read the reviews. The quality of Frye is great, and these boots look like they would work for just about anyone.

Actually, I "was" going to come on here and also recommend Corral boots, I tried on a few pair a couple of weeks ago, very fashionable and nice for the price.....

Oh yeah, one more thing that may narrow my search. I have athletic calves and most of the boots that I've been looking at look narrow. Any recommendations? :Push:

These styles have caught my eyes. Wish I had a place to try some on.
