If there is one pair of boots that are tied with Bean Boots as my favorite set of shit-kickers, it’s gotta be Roper Boots. I got my first pair as a young child of five. My latest pair was purchased back in 2005. I’d say Roper Boots probably get a lot more wear down here in the South than something like Red Wing Irish Setters, or some other form of work boot. Not to say it’s better or anything, I think it’s just a preferred style down here. I, for one, am in that camp. I love my Justin’s… and the great thing about Roper Boots is the harder you are on them and the worse you treat them, the better they look. With the release of Orvis’ US Patent Collection, I’d like to look into their Double H roper boot… but it’d be hard to say goodbye to my current pair.
You really can’t go wrong with a pair of ropers… they’re perfect.
