My mom and I had bought a pair of these cowboy boots for my husband as a birthday gift. We went to choose them all together, which ruined the surprise but added the benefit of my husband being able to pick exactly what he wanted. He chose Laredo Western Boots, Basic Western, black cherry color.
These leather boots are 13" tall, simple but stylish, decorated with stitched patterns. They have low "cowboy" heels. My husband did not want what he called "slippery leather soles, " so he made sure the boots had the right kind, non-slip outsoles. He has been wearing them quite a lot, and they do not show any noticeable wear today, several months after the purchase. Laredo promises durability, and I can say that it's there. I love the color, black cherry, it looks very nice with black jeans or slacks. According to my husband, the boots are light and comfortable, he enjoys wearing them.
