Learn how cowboy boots should fit in this new video with Austin from Ariat. The first step in making sure your cowboy boots fit correctly is deciding on your toe shape or style. This is a personal choice and depends on your personal style and how the cowboy boot feels when you have it on. Remember that the wider the toe, the less rubbing you'll feel from sides of the boot. When you try on a cowboy boot, use the pull-tabs or pull-holes to help pull you'll foot into the boot. This ensures that your boot fits snug and that you won't experience excessive heel lift as you walk or ride. Once in the cowboy boot, your arch should experience a slight amount of pressure across the top of the foot. To ensure the best cowboy boot fit, ensure that the widest part of the ball of your foot rests on the widest part of the outsole. Lastly, the toe area: use a sideways thumb to judge the distance between the tip of your toe and the end of the boot.
