Recently, I was searching for a pair of cowboy boots online, I came across a beautiful pair of roper cowboy boots for men that really caught my eye. I’ve been wanting a new pair of ropers for awhile so I’m really glad I found these beauties. After browsing around the site, I stumbled on many pairs that I wouldn’t mind having.
If you don’t have a pair of roper cowboy boots or really don’t know what they are, don’t worry, I’m here to help. The main difference between a pair of ropers and a pair of traditional cowboy boots is the shaft of the boot. The shaft on the roper is much shorter and ends before it reaches the middle of the calf. It also has it’s own “roper” heel shaped to the sole of the boot and really never exceeds an inch high. Roper cowboy boots usually have a rounded toe, but with the ever changing look of western boots, you can find square toed ropers as well.
These Ropers just last and last and look great!
Browsing through Pintoranch searching for the perfect pair of ropers, I came across a really nice pair of boots that really caught my eye and I just had to get them.

The first thing I noticed about these boots was the rich mocha bison leather chord pattern that overlays the pony brown color pull straps. They are roper toe, roper heel with about a 1’ heel height and about a 10″ shaft height; just a beautiful boot all around.

I didn’t want to purchase the first pair that caught my eye, so I continued looking. The next pair of ropers that caught my attention were the Blackjack Caiman Belly Boots. These boots were rich chocolate brown leather simple cord with caiman belly overlays finished off with a simple stitch pattern towards the top of the shaft.

With A Great Pair Of Ropers Comes Great Responsibility
So then I was stuck to make a decision about which of the two I should buy… So what I decided to do was sleep on it. Usually when I make instantaneous decisions, I usually end up making the wrong decisions… So that’s what I did. I woke up around 8am, started making coffee, took a shower started my day.
While enjoying my coffee, I felt this was the perfect time to decide which boot I’d choose out of the two that I was considering the night before. Did I want the first pair I saw which were the Lucchese’s with the rich mocha bison leather boots or did I want the Caiman Belly with the rich chocolate brown leather with the caiman belly overlay. I was stumped.
Then, after a few minutes, I started thinking of another possibility. I’ve always considered the western rustic look as a nice look for boots, so I started browsing. Scrolling and scrolling trying to find the right pair of boots I decided to search for it directly. So, I searched for the key word itself. “Men’s Western Cowboy Boots” and Pinto Ranch came back up again. So, then I went back onto PintoRanch.com and triple checked to make sure I didn’t miss any of their other boots. AND THEN…. I found them!!

These boots are AMAZING!!! These chocolate roper cowboy boots are made of caiman crocodile belly with a calfskin shaft. There are stitched designs on the collar, and Caiman Overlays on the Kennedy Pull Straps.
I was in love with these boots, I had to have them! I go and look at the price and they are $1,650. I couldn’t believe it!! Nearly $1700 dollars for a pair of roper cowboy boots….ahhh…but maybe they’re worth it… I mean they are handmade and they are Lucchese. Knowing this, I know they will last well over 10 years and maybe even 20 and that is with regular wear
When The Pros Outweigh The Cons, It’s An Easy Choice
Thinking in my head endlessly of the pros and cons of the expensive purchase. So the cons are they’re $1,650 dollars which is expensive for a pair of cowboy boots, and the pros, the boots seem really comfortable, they’re one of the most beautiful pair of roper boots I’ve seen, and to top it off… it comes with a 1 year warranty and there’s free shipping.
So, I decided the pros outweighed the cons and I purchased the boots. I couldn’t resist them. As the days started to get closer to the 5th day I started to rethink about things. One of my main concerns was that I wasn’t able to try the boots on before buying them. Typically, I wear an 11.5 but with these I wanted to get a little bigger just in case, so I went with a 12. So, I’m praying they’re the right fit.
A New Pair Of Ropers, Its Like Christmas Morning
FINALLY, THEY CAME… I was so excited… I opened the box and there they were! There’s nothing like the smell of fresh brand-new leather. I pulled them out of the box, slipped each foot into the boots stood up and I felt like a million bucks! I can’t even begin to explain to you how comfortable these boots are. I’ve never worn a more comfortable boot in my life! I started walking around in them and they were a perfect fit. I think it was a good idea I got 12, they weren’t too loose, weren’t too tight, just a perfect fit.
Although the boots are a little pricey, I would say I’m happy about my purchase and I think I handled the decision process well on determining which pair of boots I should purchase. If I had to choose between the other two before I would have most likely chosen, the Lucchese Men’s Executive Mocha Bison Roper Boots.
For all people debating on where to get boots for men or women, I suggest going to Pintoranch. It can be exciting and stressful determining the boots to order, but If I were to suggest advice I would say don’t rush into picking one, look around at your options, sleep on it if you have to, but patience is a virtue and i’m happy I found my perfect pair of Roper cowboy boots.
