Default New boot recommendations

I got some Justin Bent Rails last year and beat the ever loving **** out of em working. Wore a hole through and the sole is coming apart. I need a cowboy boot built for working that can take HEAVY abuse, been looking at Double H and Twisted X. Anyone has any recommendations let me know.

To me durable is one thing but durable and not comfortable are another. The most comfortable work boots I have ever worn are twisted x hands down!

I wear the same boots, get them resoled and ask for a Goodyear rubber piece glued on the sole and heel. It will help them last longer. No boot gonna last years if you wear the crap out of them everyday and have a leather sole.

Had same pair for 4 years with 3 resoles but the last resole with rubber piece is over a year old and still holding up. I clean and oil
The boots a few times a year and leather still decent.

Agree with this. My twisted x boots have been the most comfortable and longest lasting I have found. I had the worst luck with ariats.

X2. Workin on rigs I tried most all of em, red wings were my #1 I could usually get 6-8 months out of em. Ariat was 2nd but I think the best I got out of em was 5/6 months. From 115 degree days, pourin rain stayin soaked all day to below zero and everything in between. Stood on em for 13 hours a day for 2 weeks at a time with rig moves in between. Redwing pecos ainít the best lookin boot around but they stood up to what I needed em to

Bought Justin boots once. Had a sole come apart just after a month. Emailed Justin a few times never heard from them. Replaced them with Twisted X. They lasted a few years and were very comfortable. Bought a few more since and still very happy with them.

Check out Thorogood boots also. I’ve been through a lot of boots and these have held up the best and it’s not close really. They are also American made.

Man........this is a very difficult subject......my ariat's are the most comfortable for my primary job- ER doc, on my feet for 12-24hrs at a time. I also work my family's ranch and in the saddle I prefer some high heeled Justin boot's that I sure as hell wouldn't wear for a 24hr shift in the ER. I'm also an infantry doctor in the Army so I wear lace up boots as well. So what are you doing daily? Do you need a cowboy boot or a sneaker that looks like a cowboy boot?

Extremely good boot here... I beat the crap out of mine in the mud, water, dust..etc and they hold up excellent. Slip ons are garbage for walking.


Ugly as sin but whites smoke jumpers are fantastic as well.

I suggest having two pair of quality (redwing, dinner, thorogood, Justin, etc) work boots and rotate every other day. You'll still have to deal with wearing out soles but it does the leather a whole lot of good to dry out.
