I used to work at Cavender's Boot City so the discounts were nice, I have 3 pairs.

Justin Men's Stampede Collection Western Work Boots that didn't last long at all and I wear for mowing the lawn now.

Ariat Mesteno Square Toe Western Boots that I wear regularly and am happy with.

Twisted X Men's Square Toe Western Work Boots that I wear every day and are holding up great.

I do suggest getting sole-savers applied soon after purchase. Any shoe/boot repair shop should be able to do it. As I mentioned in my post, I use them, and although I have had the sole-savers replaced a couple times, I have never had the boots actually resoled.

I have been told, although I have no first-hand experience, that having boots resoled is a little like repairing a wrecked car. It may look fine, but it will always be a formerly wrecked car, and never quite the same as a never-wrecked car, and so resoled boots may look fine, but they will never be quite the same as boots with original soles.

Like I said, I have no experience with resoling, so take that with a grain of salt if you want.

A hard rubber "outer sole" usually black and 1/8" thick, perhaps a little less. A competent shoe repair shop can trim it to fit perfectly and glue it to the regular leather sole. Unnoticable by anyone unless they get down on their hands and knees to take a look, or you hand a boot to someone and they flip it upside down. They will eventually wear through, so consider them to be "sacrificial", and again any competent shoe shop can replace them. In theory, the actual leather soles will last indefinitely and will still be good when the boot uppers fall to pieces.

All ariats, i dont wear anything else (well Haix at work, only cause I cant wear western style boots on duty)

I dont do anything to em but wear em. usually buy a pair a year. Nothin looks sharper or feels better than a pair of boots.

Hey I have the red pair only without the squared toe. Most comfortable boots I've worn.

I think it's largely a generational thing. I mostly see little kids and then older guys tucking inside the boots; it seems to skip the middle generations (including me). The exception is equestrian; always a few guys that wear the higher style (riding) boots, but I rarely see people cruising the grocery store or street in those anyway.
