Old West Cowboy Western Men's Boots

There are a few things to keep in mind before buying a pair of old west cowboy western men's boots, whether you wear them casually or for work. Finding your proper size, knowing the difference between square toe or traditional western styles, and learning how to care for your Old West accessories may help when choosing an appropriate men's boot.

How should you find the right boot size?

Most people know their basic shoe size, but finding the correct men's boots size is slightly different. Before selecting a pair of Old West cowboy boots, measure your feet for both length and inches using a reliable chart or foot-measuring device. These simple tips will help you get the most accurate measurement for boots.

  • Wear socks: Most people don't go barefoot in boots, so this can help with an accurate measurement.
  • Go large: If your left foot and right foot are different sizes, or if your feet are between sizes, go with the larger option.
  • Measure at the end of the day: Most people's feet swell as they go through their daily routine, so it's a good idea to measure for cowboy boots in the afternoon or evening.
What's the difference between boot toe styles?

Traditional Old West cowboy boots have a long, pointy toe, but there are western boots available in square toe styles as well. Those who wear wide-width boots may want to consider buying men's sizes with square toes. For a different option, snip-toe styles are a suitable Old West option. Round-toe styles are also available.

How do you care for a leather boot?

It is recommended to use a simple routine to care for your boots.

  • Clean the cowboy boots regularly with a damp cloth and brush away dust and dirt. If your boots have a lot of creases, you can also use a toothbrush to get into smaller spaces.
  • Polish your western boots to keep the leather soft and supple. If you want to add a western sheen, consider using a conditioner.
How do you treat scuff marks on leather cowboy boots?

There are a few ways to treat the scuff marks on your Old West boots. First, try rubbing baking soda over the scuff marks, then clean with a damp cloth and polish your boot. However, if you have a deep scratch or scuff mark on your boot, try applying petroleum jelly or lavender oil.
