Elusive Boots

For the three past months I have looking for a pair of cowboys boots. I have tried on many a pair or attempted to try on many. I have tried all sorts of brands and cannot get them on. My foot goes in to the point where the ankle begins and their my foot gets stuck. I cannot get my foot to go down into the boot all the way. The leather is no hard and non pliable! It is so frustrating. Now if there is a zipper, no problem. What is it? I do not know. The boots are my size but I cannot get them on. And once I get my foot in that part way , it is very hard to get my foot back out. I need a giant shoe horn for those boots! The search will continue. I WILL get a pair of cowboy boots that fit!

Some of these are lovely!

Dolce & Gabbana Tooled Leather Boot: $1295

Frye Cowboy Boot: $550

El Vaquero Snakeskin-Embossed Boot: $550

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!

It's my guess that you have a high arch or instep, right?

Cowboy boots offer great arch support, but it's kinda tragic that the folks who need it the most -- can't even get a pair on.

Some folks have reported luck with Lucchese...but this really limits you on style choices.

This may be just the excuse you need to get custom cowboy boots made. Try Champion Attitude Boots in El Paso, TX ( Prices start at $350... and they can deliver in 3-5 weeks. Custom boots mean you get to choose the leather, color, heel height and toe shape.

Use their special measuring instructions (get a friend to help) and pay special attention to the instep and heel measurements.

If you want a list of more custom bootmakers, you can visit my website at

Good luck. Don't give up!
