Question about legal footwear

Recommended Posts

Hi Y’all, 

 

My feet are being chewed up by my standard lacers.   Other than earth walkers (great boots but out of my price range), what is the most comfortable legal foot wear (boots)?   
 

Thanks for stoping by and helping and old cowboy continue to limp along.

Everyone's feet are different.  You're just going to have to try on a mess of different boots.

 

That said, I like the Ariat work boots.

You may find that Justin work boots with the Jflex insole technology will give you the comfort your looking for with stable support as a bonus. Remember to look for the USA made Justin Jflex boots.  They work for me! Like Doc Shapiro mentioned, try on a few to see whats for you:)

Try on Ariat “Roper”-style boots.  12” shaft, with walking heels and round toe.

Red Wing Shoes is what I wear. Used Red Wing work boots for 25+ years, lots of choices, ankle boots too that look just like brogans. I still have a nice pair of 11" slip-ons for dress up somewhere, but I can't wear any kind of boot now, that's why I wear shoes;). If you decide to look at them go to Red Wing store to be measured on their gizmo. Good Luck:)

Have your pediatrist write a letter requesting that you be allowed to wear a athletic shoe. SASS has no problem accommodating a medical condition

Does anybody in CAS have feet that don't chronically hurt?  Mine seem to get worse every year - - make that month.

"Smooth soles" are NOT REQUIRED...in fact, they can be hazardous on some range/stage ground surfaces.

The only SHB refences to "soles" is in regard to the CC & BW categories prohibiting "LUG soled" boots.

 

The following rule changes were made in 2010:

Quote

 

CLARIFICATION: Boot soles for CC/BW (edit language to read "NO LUG SOLES".) The way it reads now is too restrictive & has already been ruled as non-applicable. 

 
Boots are required and must be of traditional design with
leather or smooth rubber non-grip enhancing (i.e NO “lugs”) soles). Moccasins are not allowed.

SHB (Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl)
 
Boots are required and must be of traditional design with fancy stitching or multi-color fancy design with
smooth, non-grip enhancing (i.e. NO “lugs”) soles. Lace up boots and moccasins are not allowed.

SHB (“B” Western)

Do you want to wear boots?

 

How about a pair of wing-tips?

 

Not everybody wore boots.

Bare foot is also an option. As in boots aren't required.

 

Except in CC & BW.

Not sure. My shoulders, biceps, left forearm, & ring finger on right hand all hurt so bad, I haven't been able to pay attention to my feet! I'll check & get back to you.

My foot doc's say I have to wear custom made boots ands shoes with custom insoles

 

Redwing made me a nice 8 inch pair of lace up boots and I just picked up another pair, sorry I don't remember the brand, from my local Hanger store

 

Sad to say my 17 inch boots just set in the closet and collect dust as I can't wear them all day anymore

I have Ariat “Roper”-style boots, they look nice and  to make them feel better I changed the insole to a softer one that had more support where I needed.  Still tough on my feet after wearing all day. 

For the most comfort, I wear my go to work boots, Wolverine Durashocks. With better insoles these work for me when I wear them all day.  I normally have two pairs and buy them when on sale.

There is a shooter who comes to the West Virginia State Match that wears bib overalls, a moonshiners hat and always goes barefoot.
