Looking for some new boots, wore Justin Rogers for years. Bought a pair of Justin Elephant ropers at a garage sale because they were to small for owner and a shade small for me but I can get by for short periods. What brand do you all like?

I think both look great. But my Lucchese boots are far more comfortable.

Olathe, Rios of Mercedes, and Anderson Bean are all related if I’m not mistaken. Either way, they’re just about the best boots on the market without going custom. Texas boot company in Bastrop keeps a good selection. Fenoglio is another maker I’ve heard good things about but haven’t tried. They’re out of Nocona and a bit more reasonable. Good looking boots too.

Rod Patrick. They make their boots in a ton of lengths and widths, so they fit me really well.

I’ve worn Lucchese’s for year and they are great boots. Bought a pair of Anderson Beans and have 3 pair now...most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn.

Mine are opposite for sure. Lucchese finish is better but my beans and definitely more comfortable with comparable leather

Justin. Own Anderson bean, tony lama, and ariat. Justin's are by far the most comfortable for my feet, followed by my 1 pair of TL's, then ariat, and AB. Something about AB they do not fit my feet very well.

Just bought a pair of full quill beans for my wedding. Most comfortable boots Iíve ever had on my feet. Still like my old Ariats though for work or whatever.

Lucchese are good, can run small, and youll have a hell of a time getting them stretched if they are exotic leather, some made in El paso, Tx, some made in Mexico

Tecovas are great, made in Mexico

Sheplers are made in the USA, but I have never had any.

Quit wearing the Justin due to poor quality. Started wearing Ariat with the breathable weave in the ankle area. A little cooler.
I have heard that if you ever have a pair made to fit your foot, you will throw the others you have in the corner. Maybe someday.

Me three. I sprang for a pair of Ts after seeing them online. Sizing was spot on for 13D. They look nice and are very comfy, holding up well wearing once a week for 6 months so far.

Anderson Bean and Luchessee are my go to. I can assure you the guys that talk bad about AB its because they dont fit there feet. You have to figure out what fits you the best.

I work on concrete floors all day around a Hydraulic shop and then all weekend on the ranch and Anderson Beans have held up better than any boot I have ever had.

I use to go through a pair of work boots pick you brand ive owned just about all of them every 6 months now i just keep getting my anderson beans soles replaced and they keep on rolling. Ill wear through a sole saver, sole and heel in about 6-8 months

Ive had my last pair that i downgraded to work boots about 2.5 years now and they look like crap but are still all there.

Anderson Beans are VERY WELL BUILT. never owned any of the cheap horsepower ones im sure they are junk.

I would like to try on the TECOVAS but im a square toe man and the only boot i see they make is the "CLAYTON" its a caiman square toe i may have to try out a pair. If we had some good custom boot makers around east texas i would own a few custom elephant boots. I have several Elephant luchesse and AB imo its one of the best and tough as nails.
