I get that cowboy boots are designed around working with stirrups, but why the frick would anyone wear these anywhere but two, from, and on a horse? Why do people still wear these anywhere besides on horseback?

    the people who still wear them to work dont wear boots like your pic until Sat night. When working they use rubber soled ropers and hybrids.

    Because they're homosexuals who think cowboy boots make them cool. Expect them to proudly track mud and farm animal shit into buildings as a symbol of what a hard-working farmboy they are. They also probably drive a new lifted pickup truck with an iron cross bumper that they bought with their parents' money.

              I grew up and still live in rural Canada. I have spent my entire life around rednecks who try to LARP like they're from the South. I've never lived in a suburb.

              True California suburbia actually IS all lifted trucks and country music. CA is redneck as frick as soon as you get out of the city centers, even within commuting range of them. (You'll find tons of big trucks with MAGA stickers driving into LA from Santa Clarita or the Inland Empire every morning and so on.)

      Then what did they wear in the mid-late 1800's, you slackjawed homosexual?

      >honky tonks

      They hold onto tradition long past when it loses its' usefulness. It's a cultural thing. Remember, "that ain't how I figure it to be" is a totally valid rebuttal when someone's flat-out wrong in the south.

        There weren't many better options in the 19th century, everything had slick leather soles and the only real way to improve traction was with hobnails, which would have torn up stirrups and made it hard to slide the foot in and out of them.

        Afaik real working modern cowboys do still wear the old-school smooth soles for riding, but most ground work is done in rubber-soled ropers, modern work boots, or even just sneakers depending on the situation.

          Also, as somebody who wears cowboy boots every day (I have fricked up feet and they're the only shoes I've ever found that don't give me blisters) the traditional ones aren't as bad as you'd think, the leather scuffs in and is grippier than you'd expect and you learn to use the edge of the sole as a traction aid (kinda like skiing where you control traction with tilt). I wear rubber soled ropers for any serious work or tromping around in the mud/snow though.

        I'm sorry, but you are moronic, and it's terminal.

        Have you figured out why people wore these when hiking across the mountains of Europe yet?

    Where I live cowboy and work boots are extremely popular. Most of it comes from larping and manlettes being given a reason to wear heels.

      I wear cowboy boots every day, and honestly with most the heel doesn't do much for your height, they look tall from the outside but when you add all the layers of a modern athletic shoe up they give you about the same amount of lift. That's particularly true with the ropers that most people wear as daily boots. Probably doesn't stop some manlets from thinking it'll help though.

      Personally I just wear them because I've always had issues with shoe fit, high insteps and bony blister-prone heels, and cowboy boots are the only thing I've ever found that's actually comfortable for me, I think because they naturally stretch to fit your feet over time.

      >manlets and other homosexuals who want to wear heels
      This is something I’ve seen myself. I used to know a guy who was 5’4” and wore high heeled cowboy boots all the time. Also drove a lifted truck and carried a gun everywhere

        Sounds like I need to stop wearing xero sandals and get some cowboy boots to put the manlets back in their pit. When will they learn?

      My grandfather died in 2017 and he was a cattle rancher all his life. He left like 12 pairs of dress cowboy boots. Unfortunately he was a 10.5 and me and my uncle are both 11.5s. I listen to this song and think about him sometimes.
