Finding comfortable cowboy boots is difficult only if you don’t know what to look for.

Comfortable cowboy boots are easy to find as long as you pick a good brand and know your foot shape in order to get a good fit. Getting a good brand for which you’ll have to spend a little more money has a lot to do with your success. If you think you are going to get a good fitting cheap non-leather cowboy boot, you’re not. The main cowboy boot brands have been around a long time and they know how to make good boots. They have added many new insole and outsole features to their boots to help with comfort.

Getting the correct fit is up to you. You need to know what to look for and how to size your boots properly. See the article on “How to fit for western boots.”

Justin, Ariat, Tony Lama, Lucchese, Nocona, and Dan Post are a few brand names that make fantastic western cowboy boots for women, men and kids. Each manufacturer offers boot lines with difference specifications. They use different leathers and there are different styles. It will depend on your foot shape to determine which style will suit you best. For example, if you have a wide foot, a Wellington or roper boot will be a better fit for you. Or look for rounded toe boots or a R-toe to fit a broader foot.

I’ve found that after breaking in new cowboy or western boots that become more comfortable than most of my shoes. Have you tried on a Converse Allstar tennis shoe lately? They suck. I can’t believe I wore them all the time as a kid. I can’t wear them a half-hour now without my feet hurting. I can wear my Tony Lama cowboy boots everyday all day till the end of time. You’ll be able to wear your boots all day too when you pick a good brand and a boot style that fits your foot right.
