Cowboy boots

Anyone here wear cowboy boots?

They're actually quite metro for gals right now (thanks to Jessica Simpson), but I've been quite fond of them for several years.

I bought my first pair of boots about 5 years ago and got a second pair yesterday (ostrich skin) -- both pairs are Tony Lama. I considered Lucchese, Nocona and Larry Mahan for my second pair, but the Lama's were simply the most comfortable.

I don't really wear mine anymore, but I have four pair. The most comfortable ones are suede, but I wore holes into the bottoms and never got around to seeing if they could be repaired. Two are lizard and my 'special' pair are rattle snake. I've seen ostrich skin boots but never liked the look. Always looked like bird droppings to me.

Yeah - those are the 'full quill' - and I agree with you (not a big fan). Mine are 'pieced' and have quite a different look.

I've had my plain brown leather Tony Lamas since 1990 (at least 6 resoles), and they certainly are the most comfortable.

Never had a pair but several guys I work with wear them and swear they're the most comfortable shoes/boots they own.
