While newcomers to Texas may not see too many cowboy hats these
days, Texans love their boots, particularly here in the heart of Texas.
How to find that
PAIR of BOOTS
So now that you’re on your way to settling down in the BBQ, music, and boot capital of the world, it might be time to start
thinking about buying that first pair of boots! With so many styles of boots to choose from, we asked one of the experts in the
boot business, Marc Conselman, owner of Texas Boot Company, for some tips on how to find that perfect first pair of boots.
What advice do you have for finding the perfect pair of boots?
Conselman: As for style, the right pair will kind of jump out and choose you.
The most important thing, however, is a good fit. Boots fit a little differently
than shoes. There are no laces that tighten just the right amount. A good
fit means a snug and firm fit around the instep, with a moderate slip in the
heel. As you break the boot in, that heel grips rather than slips.
We carry about 15 different brands of boots, so we can match the fit of the boot
to the shape of your foot, as every foot is different.
What types of boots does Texas Boot Company carry?
Conselman: Well, we have several thousand pairs of boots on our racks.
Folks come from all over Texas to shop with us, so we’re pretty confident
we’ve got something for everyone! From work boots to riding boots to boots
that are walkable works of art, we’ve got it all. In fact, the selection can be
a bit overwhelming! That’s why we offer complimentary Lone Star Beer and
margaritas, so folks can relax and enjoy the experience.
Texas Boot Company is located in Bastrop, Texas – the heart of the Texas
BBQ Trail. So head to Bastrop, grab some boots and some BBQ and enjoy
the experience of becoming a true Texan.
