A few things to note. I am tall, and I like a taller shaft. Most standard cowboy boots have a 12 inch shaft, however, both these pairs are taller. Also, note the heel height.
Ok, here they are!
This first pair is by Ariat. It has a 15 inch shaft, so would hit just below the knee. The heel height is
1 3/4 inch high. While it has the traditional pointed toe of a cowboy boot, it is a snip toe, meaning the end is squared off, which I like. Here's the info from the site-
- Sassy Brown Leather Foot & Upper
- 15" Tall Upper w/ Partial Inside Zipper
- Decorative Stitch & Embroidery on Foot & Top Collar
- Snip Toe
- ATS Technology - Stability & Comfort
- Duratread Outsole - Durability
- 1.75" Dress Heel
- Goodyear® Single Stitched Welt
The Sahara combines traditional western boot attributes with smooth styling to create a boot in a class all its own. Craftsmen started with a classic western foot foundation, with an X toe, Duratread outsole and scoured and distressed dress heel. The smooth foot and upper are constructed from full-grain leather. Decorative stitching and embroidery adorn the foot and top collar. The partial inside zipper provides a superb fit around the calf. Ariat’s ATS Footbed Technology delivers superior support, stability and comfort.
And...here's the second pair. These are by Corral, another great boot company. They have a 13 inch shaft, so 2 inches shorter on the leg than the above pair. The heel is 2 1/8 inches high. Also snip toe.
Here's the info from the site-
- Cognac and antique saddle leather overlay vamp
- 13" Cognac and antique saddle shaft with eagle overlay
- Lightly cushioned insole
- Leather outsole
- 2 1/8" Heel height
- Snip toe
- Hand crafted and finished, no two are alike
These fancy inlay western boots by Corral Boots will turn heads from the ranch to the dance floor! The 13" goat leather shaft features an eagle inlay on the shaft and wing tip toe. Lined with comfortable leather, these boots will mold to your feet as you wear them in. The 2 1/8" is perfect for any woman and the leather sole will have you dancing all night!
But I'd still love to hear your thoughts!!
