6 Most Comfortable Cowboy Boots 2017
Whether you need a good-looking pair of cowboy boots for a night out on the town or something tough that can handle the daily wear and tear of farming and ranching, comfort is key when you are boot shopping.
We know that everyone’s idea of comfort is different, so use the boots on our list below as a starting point. These are the most comfortable cowboy boots for many who enjoy this style of footwear, so have a look at our suggestions!
Tips to Keep You Comfortable
Here are a few tips that will help your feet stay comfortable while you’re wearing a pair of cowboy boots:
- Socks. The right pair of socks can make a big difference. Look for socks that are made from breathable materials, lightweight for warm weather and heavier for cold weather.
If you suffer from foot conditions, you have high arches or flat feet, then look for socks that offer you extra support (in the arches, around the heel, etc.)
- Match the Boot to the Activity. Are your cowboy boots just for looks or do you need them for work?
Work boots are designed for a variety of outdoor tasks. The heel is set low and the soles have traction.
- Snug Fit. The boot should have a snug fit, but there is a fine line between snug and too tight. Give yourself enough room to wear a thick pair of socks but not too much room for the boot to flop around with a pair of regular socks on.

When trying to find a pair of comfortable cowboy boots, have a look at the shape of the toe.
Rounded tips will provide you with the most room in the toe area, which is great if you have wide feet. Square tips are slightly narrower, but if you find a wide boot then the taper might not bother you.
Traditional and snip tips have a sharper taper, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing if you have narrow feet. Just make sure to measure your feet carefully and refer to a cowboy boot sizing chart in order to help you find the right size and fit for your feet.
