Lonestarbootstore.com is the first online shopping boutique I have ever encountered which actually created an outrageously amazing shopping experience for me. I ordered a beautiful leather bible cover as a Christmas present for my Grandmother. I bought this for her as a way to encourage her to get herself back to Church after my Grandfather passed away a year ago. Unfortunately, I waited a little to long to order and receiving the package before the holiday seemed to be impossible. Lonestarbootstore.com let me know about the issue and the time frame. When I told them my story, Guy of lonestarbookstore.com, took action. Somehow, he managed to make some calls and pull some favors. He got the order shipped just in time for the holidays. My grandmother is now back in Church every Sunday with her beautiful western bible cover, which she loves to (subtlety) show off. I cannot thank Guy and the team over at lonestarbootstore.com enough for reaching through the quiet action of the internet and letting me know that there are still awesome people in our world. Lonestartbootstore.com is ready and willing to treat every customer and their situation with dignity and respect.
For all of that, I thank you.

Mens Cowboy boots are a style historically used for horseback riding, worn by working cowboys. Mens Cowboy Boots are fitted with a high heel and a pointed or rounded toe, a high boot shaft to mid-calf and no lacing; usually constructed of cowhide leather. Some are also are of "exotic leather" like snake, ostrich, alligator, lizard, eel skin, sting ray, shark, elephant, elk, and buffalo, among others.
Mens Western boots come in two basic styles, Classic and Roper boots. The classic style has a tall shaft to mid-calf or higher, with an heel that is angled forward, the "cowboy" heel, normally over one inch high. A walking heel that is lower but still angled, is also a common feature; usually having a narrowed or pointed, toe.
Ropers have a short shaft that reaches above the ankle but stops before the mid-calf, fitted with a very low and squared-off heel. Usually the roper heel is less than one inch high. Ropers are normally constructed with rounded toes; however some styles come with a squared toe.
Today Western boots are a part of American culture; Cattle ranching in America began as early as 1767 in California, but did not begin in Texas until the 1820s. The vision most folk picture as the American cowboy life did not begin until 1867 with the construction of the railroads in the west which gave birth to the trail drives after the civil war.
