    Seriously. You have a knack for writing. I can see how easy it rolls out from you. I want to hear more. Take my advice. Write a short story. Someday you'll remember this advice.

    Just had these delivered, a Christmas present for my wife. She has been wanting some red boots, and recently said she would like some snake or lizard skin. She asked for a pair of vintage boots for Christmas, so here they are. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks Bamaboots, I feel lucky to have found them. This will be her fifth pair of western boots and third pair of black labels. I'm afraid this isn't the end. I may have created a monster.

    Love me some red cowboy boots and black with red accents. Ran across this pic from Canyon City, TX bootmaker Dean Randolph. Never seen a red welt before.

  12. I have been putting a TOPY thin rubber sole overtop the leather soles of my cowboy boots. Do you leave them as leather?
    I find the leather slippery and up here in the wet leather does not handle the wet very well and the TOPY helps extend the life of the sole. Costs $30 but worth it in my view. It is so thin it does not really show on the profile of the boot.

    I haven't used it, but here in the Mojave desert, moisture isn't much of a problem.

    I have them on my pair of Stallion boots but no others. I have thought about putting them on some of my customs because the makers are dead and I don't think I would ever have them half-soled. A rebuild would be difficult using a different maker. As @belfastboy said, I don't notice a profile change in the boots.

    Those are very pretty, I like black and red together. Hurricane's black and red, with long mule ears are etched in my brain.

    It's a fairly thin rubber sheet that is applied with a flexible contact cement. I've never seen any come loose.

  20. I have been putting them on some of the vintage boots I have recently picked up. For the small amount of miles I will put on them it should prevent me from having to have them resoled
