There’s nothing better than the smell of fresh leather, right? When I’m walking down the street and pass boot shop, the smell always stops me in my tracks. Boots are a part of who I am, they’re with me every where I go and have so many stories to tell if they could talk. And I’m willing to bet there’s a few folks out there who could use a new pair of boots right now… As a way of saying THANK YOU to my followers, I am going to make that happen.
About a month ago, the fine folks at Boot Barn (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) asked if I would like to try out a new line of boots. The Cody James clothing line (exclusively at Boot Barn) consists of men’s shirts, jackets, belts, phone cases, and boots. There are 8 styles of boots to choose from and I was pretty excited to see these Square Toe Stockman boots come in Orange (go Pokes!).
I’ve worn the boots around for a month, and they’re definitely growing on me. A good pair of leather soled boots are always good for a little bit of everything once they’re broken in, and I’ve done just that. From sitting in the office all day, walking around downtown Nashville, checking cattle in the pasture, and even a little impromptu ball, they’ve treated me well. The boots fit well, don’t make my feet hot like some boots, and are comfortable to wear all day. They are made in Mexico. Maybe Boot Barn will find a way to bring it home for some American jobs in the future.
