I am asked from time to time what manufacturers and styles of tall boots I like to wear, and do I enjoy wearing tall boots over my pants, jeans, or breeches. This post is about my preferences for tall men’s boots, especially nowadays where my lower legs have lost muscle tone with age.
There are four basic styles of tall boots designed for men. They are…
These days when so many orders for new boots are placed via on-line ordering systems, it is expected that vendors will send an email to acknowledge placement of the order, provide order details, and information on when to expect delivery. That is common.
What is woefully inconsistent is how vendors communicate with purchasers after-the-sale, especially to confirm delivery.
There are some excellent vendors who communicate very well, and some really bad ones with whom I have experience. Learn more…
A reader wrote to me recently to ask for a link to a video that I produced a long time ago, but remains “evergreen” in its instructions. The video was titled, “Training the Ankles of New Dehner Patrol Boots,” and is applicable to breaking in any pair of boots that have a stiff backstay (a strip of leather that runs up and down the back of the inside of the boot lining to stiffen and support the boot and hold up the top).

This is a great question, and thanks for the blog idea. My answer follows after the jump…
I continue to receive questions along the lines of, “with so many boots in your cowboy boots, motorcycle boots, Frye boots, work boots and dress boots collections, do you really wear them all?
I can understand why I get those kinds of questions. The answer is…
Chippewa boots, made in the USA, are good-quality boots. They make a very large number of models of boots from motorcycle, logger, packer, hiking, and work boot styles, among others.
I have always been amazed by the huge variety of boots that Chippewa offers. But that variety has its pluses and minuses — the worst of the negatives includes…
As a follow up to my post titled, “Harness Boots for Guys,” this post is about an equally rugged, tough masculine boot that many guys choose to wear. That’s the engineer boot. This boot style…
I have an interesting non-invasive piece of software on all 729 of my website’s pages that gives me interesting summary information about website visits.
An intriguing detail shows the “click-through-rate” which my software defines as:
what percentage of people exposed to my website using Google for a given search actually clicked on the result for my website.
Here are the results of what types, styles, and manufacturers of boots draw the most visitors to pages on my website as a result of a google search.
Following the post titled, My 3 Most Favorite Boots for Motorcycling, I promised at the end of that post that I would follow with a post about boots I have tried and choose not to wear (much.)
I have been watching stats for both my boots & leather website and this blog, and for about the past two months, the visits to this blog have been increasing, while the visits to the website have remained flat. Last month, the daily visits to this blog have exceeded the average daily visits to the website.
As a result, I have decided to …
