    Your link doesn't work.

    I wear a pair of Justin square toe full quill ostrich boots to work every day. Most comfortable 'dress shoes' I've ever worn. Had them for 7 years, still going strong and look great l. Had to have them re-soled twice, but I'm still in for less than it would have cost me to buy a pair of new dress shoes yearly.

    You should have bought the estate sale boots if they were your size. Granted, boots shouldn't be made out of endangered/non-livestock species, but it's a waste to toss them.

    I just looked up Sea turtle boots on google. Those look amazing...

    I wish there was a way to harvest them in a sustainable manner

    A lot of "dress boots" aren't very well cushioned (hell, even work boots like Redwings and Ariats aren't all that great), and they can be really tough on your lower back, knees and feet. You may not notice it for years, but the cumulative stress from shocks will catch up to you eventually. Sadly I know this all too well. If you are planning on wearing them often you should consider buying them a half-size bigger and putting in some badass inserts.

    See that's what I am worried about.. I like the look of some of them but do not want to sacrifice health for fashion

    If you're not going to wear them every day, and will not be spending all day on your feet, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Spend some $$$ on inserts and you'll be fine.

    I don't like pointy toe cowboy boots. I like the Colorado style

    Frye Boots are very nice.

    I am the total opposite and probably in the minority but I am not a fan of the square toe boots. I kind of like the snub nose ones but I love the pointy/rounded toe. I love my Lucchese's.

    I snagged three pairs of Lucchese's at an estate sale for 17.50 each..

    They feel really good!

    Boots were useful and effective in the Old West of the 1800's especially with cattle ranching. It is a relic of the past. Now with modern, scientific, cutting edge shoe wear like Crocs we can leave cowboy boots for the Halloween parties.

    I like boots but only on women who are wearing short skirts. Oh this thread is about guys wearing boots? Nevermind...

    Comments like that help *me* distinguish the posers.

    Yes. My go-to work boots, and with a little neatsfoot oil they shine up real nice. Not dancehall nice, but good enough for most non-Horseshoe Bay social situations.

    Depends on the weather and what you're doing. I've worked cattle in shorts and flip flops and I've worked cattle in steel toed boots and jeans.

    Sometimes though, some people might want the best of both worlds

    Good. Keep buying square toes and I will keep laughing. Also keep thinking you have more cows and land than other people on the board.

    Lolzolol, I wasn't being serious, and no, I've never owned any and don't really like the look. Know a few people who do though, and I've never really cared enough about what grown men put on their feet to form a real opinion in regards to their authenticity.

    Weird little jab at the end, not sure where that came from. You are a strange dude.
