What else is equally important" Boots. You won’t see too many cowboys wearing lace-up boots these days, and pointy toed boots or “cockroach killers” on a guy aren’t going to cut it either. A simple roper-style boot with a flat heel and a round or square toe (square toes are very “in” right now) is your safest bet. The taller riding heel is nice looking but less practical if you will be doing more walking than riding. Most people will find the flat heel more comfortable.
Once you get the basic style down, there are hundreds of options in colors, materials and price point. Expect to pay a pretty penny for a standard, basic leather boot.
