Rodeo Boot for Men:


Anderson Bean 3095A

We had the opportunity to sit down with our sales representative and hand-picked the vamp and top leather combination. Style 3095A features the Bison Oklahoma vamp, a soft dark brown bison leather with rugged good looks in addition to being durable. Most noteworthy the 13 inch Kidskin Chanel shaft is a beautiful cream color with a one of a kind stitch pattern. The technical name is Brave and it resembles a Chief wearing a head dress.  Most of all these boots are very comfortable with the Cush-N-Sole inserts providing all day comfort.

Dan Post style # DP2914 is a soft sanded vintage leather in addition to gorgeous good looks this boot is super soft. Inlays of hearts and bluebirds adorn the 11″ inch shaft.Consequently this boot contains the recipe for one good looking boot. The fashionable yet Cowgirl ready Bluebird boot features inlays in muted tones of blue. Most noteworthy, the leather sole provides ease getting in and out of the stirrup or sliding across the dance floor. In addition to the ever popular square toe these are double stitched.

Rodeo Boot for Children:


Jama 1606

Jama Old West style 1606 is a great starter boot for those entering the Western lifestyle in addition to being a comfortable boot for children.. I love the Distressed Brown vamp because it looks great with jeans of any shade and is perfect for the Rodeo. In addition to a beautiful upper a NEOLITE outsole is Jama’s equivalent to the crepe sole. These boots also feature a black bull-hide heel counter for added reinforcement.

So, step into a pair of these and you’ll be Hooey from head to toe. We’re making Hooey in men’s, women’s, and kid’s boots.” –Twisted X

A couple of years ago Twisted X teamed up with Hooey to create a line of boots inspired by the Hooey brand and their enthusiasts. Each boot features the Cowboy Comfort™ Package and one of the various Hooey logos. As Twisted X stated, this collection has taken the western world by storm. Cowboys, Cowgirls, and even Cowkids can’t get enough. The designs and punchy color combinations make this collection stand out.

Hooey Boots for Cowboys and Cowkids

The Hooey boots for cowboys and Cowkids offers a wide selection of boots ranging from traditional to punchy. Competitive ropers, western enthusiasts, and your average cowboy should be able to find a pair of boot that pleases their fancy.

Twisted X Hooey MHY0004

Twisted X style MHY0004 was one of the first boots that came out of production when this joint venture began. It features a Cognac Bull Hide vamp with a 12 inch Neon Blue top. As you can see, the Neon Orange piping and stitch pattern really pops against the neon blue background. The contrast creates a truly eye-catching design. This boot was a top seller when it was first introduced to the shelves at Boot City in Lubbock, TX. In fact, it was hard to keep them in stock. They kept flying out the door. Everyone loved the partnership Twisted X and Hooey created.This style is also available kid and youth sizes.

Twisted X started to broaden the collection after the successful debut of MHY0004.

Twisted X style MHY0017Twisted X Hooey MHY0017 is a recent addition to the Hooey collection. It features a Cognac vamp with a 12 inch Turquoise top. As you can see, the design elements have been toned downed. White thread was used, instead of neon orange. The Hooey logo is front and center and surrounded by a diamond stitch pattern. Even though this particular style isn’t considered as punchy as its predecessor, it still makes a statement. It isn’t over-the-top and proudly displays the logo. This style is also one of the few to feature a different colored toe bug so the design doesn’t blend in. We don’t carry this boot at our walk-in store located in Lubbock, TX, but we can order it directly from Twisted X. This style is also available in youth sizes.

Twisted X MHY011

Twisted X style MHY0011 is also a recent addition to this collection. It is quite a bit tamer than the others, but it has some fancy design elements.

It’s flanked on either side with the same color pattern. This boot is perfect for the proud Texan.

Ariat Showcase

Howdy all, how is everyone doing on this beautiful day? Myself I am blessed. Well today I want to talk you about an awesome brand Ariat. Ariat was founded in 1990 by Beth Cross and Pam Parker. Their mission is to make great riding boots that feels great on your feet.

Ariat Fire Catcher

Ariat Fire Catcher 10016260The first Ariat that I am going to tell you about is style 10016260 which is called the Fire Catcher. This boot features the Black Caiman Belly vamp with Tan Tops. So yes this is exotic leather. A fun fact I have discovered about this particular boot is that Trevor Brazile, the famous cowboy, actually rodeos in them. Crazy, right! Who is going to take that chance and mess up Caiman leather? Well he does. Ariat is actually Trevor’s footwear sponsor. So that should tell you how strong, durable, and comfortable Ariat is. This boot features the ATS insole. That means it supports and cushions the foot as you move, promoting good posture and reducing fatigue so that you can work or play all day. It also has a moisture-wicking foot-bed that provides cool, dry comfort. Now the Fire Catcher obviously looks great dressed up but it still looks good dressed down in your favorite Wrangler jeans and work shirt.

Ariat Live Wire

Ariat Live Wire 10017385The second Ariat is going to be style 10017385 which is called Live Wire it has a Chocolate Vamp with 13 inch Vintage black tops with neon green accents. This boot is surely a show stopper with it bright neon colors.   These striking Ariat western boots are equipped with ATS Pro comfort technology, Duratread outsole, and Goodyear leather welt construction for rugged durability and lasting comfort. Ariat is really all about taking care of our hard working Cowboys and Cowgirls. Now these boots are sharp, with the Chocolate vamp they will dress up any look. Personally I think they would look good with a really dark pair of Cinch Jeans and a dark button down shirt. If you have a wedding or graduation you could even pair them with some nice khaki pants, a pastel color button down and your favorite Stetson hat. Now if I was wearing them I would tuck my pants in and show off the neon green accents. I honestly don’t think most of you Cowboys would like that look, but it’s out there.

Ariat Tombstone

Ariat Tombstone  10016277The last Ariat I have for you is going to be style 10016277 which is called Tombstone Smooth Quill Ostrich. This boot features the Brandy Smooth Quill Ostrich vamp with Beasty Brown Tops. These 13 inch tops has a decorative stitch pattern in colors of orange, brown, and tan. These boots also feature ATS Technology it provides superior lightweight stability and cushioning. The system consists of a moisture-wicking footbed with gel pads for added comfort and shock absorption, and a composite forked shank for stability. Ariat’s Duratread Outsole is a specially formulated carbon rubber that is highly resistant to manure and acidic waste. Again Ariat is making sure our Cowboys are taken care of. This boot is going to be great for every day wear. Personally I think it would look nice with a worn in pair of Wrangler jeans and your favorite football shirt. Need a dressier look no problem pair these Tombstones with a nice pair of slacks and your favorite dark Cinch button down and boom you have a look nice enough for a wedding.

“Ariat was founded with one simple objective—to provide the most technically advanced riding boots for the world’s top equestrian athletes. Featuring state-of-the-art stability and cushioning technology, Ariat is the footwear of choice for top riders around the world, as well as for the non-riders who have discovered Ariat’s classic styling and comfort.” –Ariat
