How to Make Classic Western Boots More Comfortable

It's easy. Convert them into ropers!

Traditional western-style (or cowboy) boots are made with high, slanted heels. These heels are designed to serve a very important function, namely, to hook into saddle stirrups and keep a rider safe and stable while working the land.

Over the past several decades, however, western boots have become a beloved staple out of the saddle, too, and can now be found everywhere from the bar to the boardroom.

Unfortunately, these classic high, slant heeled western boots aren’t always comfortable for the all-day wear now demanded of today’s boot wearers.

If you want your favorite western boots to be more comfortable for all day wear, our cobblers can convert them into ropers!

Cobblers Direct will carefully convert the leather heel base of your western boots into roper-style boots, providing a lower, more stable “walking heel”. The heel is a block walking heel, and no longer has any slant of angle, which makes your western boots feel just about as comfortable as a pair of sneakers.

We can take any classic western boot and turn it into a roper for you. Live chat or email our cobblers today to discuss the conversion of your classis western boots!
