R Watson Boots

Black Cherry Caiman Alligator Belly
R Watson Men's Western Exotic Boots

You want a stylish exotic boot, with arch support, and cradle comfort? 
R Watson Boot Company understands how to make a great handcrafted boot.
Pricing is fair and the quality is higher than many!

We know you can find all sorts of western boots today. And to find a good pair sometimes gets confusing. Most of the major "brands" offer everything from not built so well to built very well.  This page, these RWatson cowboy boots are targeted to those with a bit of discriminating taste.  ( Cheap ain't inexpensive! It's cheap! )    Cheap cost much more in the long run.  (I know I'm preaching to the choir here!)

What we have found is that the consistency and quality of these R Watson exotic boots allow us to be proud to provide them for you. How are the heel counters made? Sturdy! Why - the heel counter that you cannot see is what will determine whether your foot has a tendency to break over the outside of your heel. Once this happens, you not only lose support under your feet, they start to hurt.

Are the soles welted so that my boots can be resoled? Yes - This hand welting process takes a lot more skill than injection molding, which is why so many brands are turning to that process. Skilled labor is in short supply so R Watson pays an attractive wage - you get a better product when the bootmakers care about your satisfaction

Is the toe box made of preformed material that sweats your toes, or is it breathable?  They do allow air to circulate without being trapped in your socks, will avert foot fungus, and will help the boot materials to last much longer.  Does air flow around as well as moisture flowing through to the outside of your footwear?  This happens with the materials used in R Watson dress boots. Be careful to purchasing a boot that's not too small. Your heel should slip a little when you step in your new boots. This pumps the air around your foot like the design was meant to be. 

How about the linings? Glove linings are the norm here and the rear of the shaft has enough support that the boot lining will not tear with the pressures of your putting on or pulling off your boot.  And these glove leather linings breath!  Without going into all the details, (Which we will do if you call to ask), you can trust R Watson cowboy boots to be moderate in price and way above moderate in longevity, and comfort. Also: the bed of your boot has a full leather lining on the inside to prevent "kicking up of the shorter heel pads used on many boots. 

Mr. Randy Watson was past President of Justin Industries. His experience, the trust our industry has for him, and his caring for both the makers and wearers of boots brought him back into boot making. 40 years of experience need not go down the drain!. He came out of retirement, and when various other opportunities fell into place, he began R. Watson Boot Company.

One of our customers came into Cultured Cowboy and said. "You gotta put these boots in your store. They're the old Justins you used to carry."  It took a few months, but now Cultured Cowboy & R Watson boots are teaming together to bring you "excitement" in Western footwear!  

We trust and know R Watson boot knows exotics, and you can be assured of a great experience for many years to come! 

ALSO:  Together we're working on the "patrol boot" which will work as a great boot for airline pilots. Shiny black, tall enough not to catch on your pants, and non-slip bottoms, moderate heel, rounded toe. NO steel to set off alarms at airports! 

Also, the old Justin 545 & 414 lacers in Bay Apache along with the black bullhide 522 counterpart, so popular among rodeo riders is coming back through Cultured Cowboy! (& R. Watson)

The raised portions of the shaft of these boots are called "corded". It gives a richer look for you. There is actually a cord that is stitched between the layers of outer & lining.
