Etched in frontier history, men’s cowboy boots helped to win the wild American West. Men’s Western boots adapted over time to meet modern demands. Now cowboy boots are made with stylish designs and rigorous build for a wide array of uses. Before any purchases, it is important to understand the construction of men’s cowboy boots for utmost safety and comfort. In the untamed outdoors, classic men’s cowboy boots are great for everyday use by men who work both on the ground and on horseback. Cowboy boots purposed for horseback riding have high, angled heels to keep the boots from slipping out of the stirrups, and have special leather soles to prevent snagging in the event of a quick dismount. Men’s western boots designed strictly for fashion are not recommended for horseback riding or working outdoors. From western fashion boots to western riding boots, Sierra Trading Post carries brands like Tony Lama, Justin Boots and Dan Post that have a rich history of crafting the finest men’s cowboy boots.
