Our office is having a western themed holiday party, so this evening, some friends of mine and I went to Shepler's to find a few western themed articles of clothing. I'm wearing my chaps (squee!), but I have no western blouse to go with it. I found one on sale for about $10. It'll do. I also looked around at the boots and tried some on. I don't think I'm a cowboy boot kinda gal. They look cool, but I just don't like the fit of the ones I've tried (not many). I did try on a really cool pair of boots that were a cross between a motorcycle boot and a western boot. They fit well and were on sale. The only problem? The toe was about an inch longer than I'm used to having. I thought that might be too risky to work with on a motorcycle. No pointy toes, only square ones!
One of my friends bought really snazzy red cowboy boots though. She was ecstatic.
My search for the perfect motorcycle boot continues...
How often do you ride?
Well, I only started this summer, so too early to have real, long-term data, but during Aug. and Sept. I was both commuting and riding recreationally. I was riding to work (about 7 mi. one way) about three times a week, and riding on the weekends, probably every other weekend-ish.
Cool. Good luck finding the perfect boot. I love shoes...
Cowboy boots are designed to ride in, therefore they are extremely uncomfortable to walk in. That is why cowboys look like they have lots of blisters on their feet when they are walking (other than achy joints from riding in all weather.)
Square toes are helpful. Overlong toes are not at all!!
