I’m posting here for any advise anyone can give me. I’ve finally worn through my half chaps and I’m starting to look for a pair of tall boots.
It seems close to impossible to find a store, much less a local retailer, that carries any substantial selection of mens boots. Dover has said that if I send them my measurements they will enquire with their vendors. I don’t know how successful that will be, but I definitely plan on doing so.
In the mean time, it seemed worth while to see if anyone online had any ideas.
Manly, the questions I have are these:
What are the best, but affordable manufactures, especially for boots that fit men? I say “that fit men” because my next questions is, how different is a women’s boot from a men’s boot?
The brands I’ve initially thought to look at are Tredstep and Ariat. I’ve always worn Ariat before and loved their paddock boots, but they seem to have a limited tall boot selection. That being said, when I tried on a few of the ladies boots in a store the Tredstep seemed to have too small of an ankle, while I liked the feel of the Ariat Winchester.
If anyone has any advise shopping for mens dress boots, or even just suggestions on the brands to look for I’d love to hear them.
If it helps, here are my measurements, I don’t know how typical they are:
