For some guys, a boot is not Western unless it has a rounded toe. Traditionally, a cowboy boot had a tapered forefoot that rounds off at the end, known as an R toe. Besides being rooted in tradition, men’s round toe cowboy boots are ideal for the avid rider.
A Classic Mainstay
Since the round toe pays homage to the Western boot tradition, men’s round tip boots tend to have other classic cowboy boot features. Usually the shaft has Western cutouts and stiching and comes to the mid-calf. The heel is angled and at least an inch high. These traditional cowboy boot characteristics, as well as the round toe itself, are designed to support long hours in the saddle.
Rounded Work Boots
Besides being featured on classic cowboy boots, round toe boots sometimes fall into the work boot category. The toe box on these boots usually does not taper much, if at all, and are known as a U toe or W toe. These boots are characterized by shorter shafts and heels and are better suited for those spending a lot of time on the job.
