Who else is still looking for the perfect pair of leather boots for Fall? Search no more! These gorgeous boots came Justin the knick of time for winter and are under $150! From my own experience, finding the perfect pair of boots is never easy. There are so many things to consider; price, sizing, brand, comfort, style, what you will realistically wear them with and how often. If you’re like me, I love splurging on a great pair of classic boots because they are going to last me for years and years to come.
My latest leather boot find came from Justin Boots and at a price of $144, they were hard to pass up! Like a nerd, I went through my check list to see if they were something I really needed. Does anyone else’s husband, boyfriends or friends make fun of them because they make countless amounts of lists?? Well, mine does!! Anyway, being a boot hoarder from Texas, I had to make sure this pair met my needs and looked different enough to add to the collection. And they obviously passed the test… I mean, look how pretty they are!!
What caught my eye the most was the quilted detailing on the back and sides along with the darker leather tones at the toe and heel. I am all for intricate detailing on boots and really think that’s what really makes a pair stand out. This is definitely a gorgeous twist on a classic pair of cognac leather boots. The height of this particular pair was just right; it didn’t hit too low and didn’t go too high to where I couldn’t walk comfortably. You can see that the front is a little higher than the back to give the illusion of a trendier riding boot.
Another thing you should be aware of is cowboy boot sizing. I know these aren’t cowboy boots but they do come from a cowboy boot manufacturer so sizing could be off. If you tend to shop more online, check the sizing charts just to make sure you get close to the right size so you aren’t having to exchange. Since this pair is more of a classic boot the sizing was actually dead on, so don’t worry about sizing up or down in this particular pair. If you are one that wears thick socks with your boots then order a half size up! I literally can’t wear my boots without SmartWool socks; like I feel naked without them! I also don’t want to have to worry about being uncomfortable so I love lots of cushion.
Speaking of staying comfy, these boots KILL it with comfort and affordability! The price is literally hard to beat on a pair of genuine leather boots. So many people seem to revert to large department stores to buy designer “leather” boots and end up with an expensive pleather that isn’t going to hold up longer than a year, if that. Being a Texas native, my family always shopped at authentic cowboy boot makers. You know 100% that you are getting quality and the best leather out there that will last you a lifetime. Literally, a lifetime. The majority of the boots I wear on a daily basis have come from Justin’s and I’m not just saying that. I have literally been a customer of theirs for years. Why? Quality and price will beat any designer boot out there AND they carry an array of boots other than cowboy boots… You know, if that’s just not your style!
