exclusive ATS Technology™, provides the best
flexibility and cushioning available for the
recreational rider. Premium quality leather uppers are
paired with the highly flexible and durable Duratread™

Yet, do you know what benefit this has for you? ...A
really good feeling, good fitting boot. And boots are
supposed to be durable too. This one is. The tread on
the bottom is easy to keep in a stirrup. Expect the boot
to feel like a good handshake in the fore part of the
foot, and slip a little on your heel. With about 16
hours of wear, this will break in properly.
Full Quill Ostrich
When I was 17, in 1973, Square
toed boots were the fashion boot of the decade...They're
Back!...for our 2nd "life's playtime"!
you are a visitor who has never worn Western boots, the
heel height is misleading. The boot is shaped with an
exterior heel that will aid in controlling how far in
the stirrup a foot will slide. It is large at the base
and comes under your foot considerably more than many
fashion boots. This gives stability and structure, so
your legs and back are more properly supported, whether
on the ground standing, walking, or riding that horse.
(Not a warranteed claim!!! Don't you hate it when
you can't tell common sense stuff because it might make
you an expert, or liable, for something? Sports will get
you hurt, no matter what.) The boot will feel like
wearing a really arch supportive shoe with a 1 inch
heel. The technology just sort of absorbs that extra 1/2
inch height in comfort and "pride". Try
'em...You'll like 'em.
This square toe is a wide
toe. Expect the toe of a boot to extend past
your toes further than any street shoe. After all, you
don't want your middle toes all crossed up in a short toe boot, do you? They won't! We always fit the arch and ball areas
of footwear. There is usually plenty of room in the toe
when the arch is properly fitted. Boot makers allow more
toe room than in a standard shoe, for comfort reasons. Boot
comfort, such as allowing more air circulation, means
your feet are not as damp all day; therefore, don't rot or
smell as badly as in other footwear!
The heel slippage
actually pumps air around your foot to help dissipate
foot moisture better than any other footwear, (except
open toe style sandals).
