The Boot Store carries Dan Post boots with a number of different styles. The company was introduced in the 1960s and uses the best premium leathers and exotic skins. The company uses the highest materials to ensure that boots are comfortable, from the first step to last.
The Dan Post Cowboy certified boots are meant for the working cowboy and cowgirl. The boots are designed for those who have a love of the Western heritage, and these boots are made for working with no pretenses.
In order to find the right fit of boots, there are some tips to keep in mind so you can ensure the perfect look and comfort. The boots should be in your normal shoe size, but there could be differences in the leather, toe, and heel height that can affect the way that the boot fits. Make sure to try the boot on with the same thickness of sock that you will wear with the boots. It’s much easier to try the boots on while you are sitting, and you should hear a “plop” as you settle your foot into your boot. Once you have the boot on, you should position your foot to the widest part of the boot’s insole. The arch and the foot of your boot should match. Check to see if your toes touch any piece of the leather. If the toe causes a bump or extends beyond the stitching, then the boots are too short. Heel slippage can be normal, so it doesn’t mean that they don’t fit correctly. Once the boots are worn in a little bit, the heel slippage should stop. You can use wrinkles to determine if the boots are fitting correctly. Take the leather between your thumb and index finger. If you see a large wrinkle, the boots are too big. If there is a slight wrinkle, it means you have a good fit.
While your Dan Post boots are meant to withstand harsh working conditions, there are some things you can do to take care of your boots. The leather can differ in nature. It’s best to remove any dust and dirt from your shoes and then apply leather conditioner. For cowhide leathers, apply the leather conditioner while the boots are still damp, but only use a light coat. If you need water protection for these boats, use a non-silicone stain and water protector. Calf leather can be cared for the same way, but make sure that that care is performed on a more regular basis because it’s much thinner. For naked or nude finish leathers, don’t use a conditioner because the color can turn much darker. You can still use a non-silicon stain and water protector when they are new. For suede leather, use a nylon brush to remove dust and dirt. Mud or dirty water can discolor the leather and can be difficult to clean. For microfiber, use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt, as well as a non-silicone stain and water protector. For patent leather, use a damp cloth to remove dirt.
With so many styles to choose from, you will find the perfect Dan Post cowboy boots for your needs.
