Finding Your Perfect Pair of Cowboy Boots at Tractor Supply

A Boot-Lover’s Guide to Choosing the Right Fit and Style

As someone who grew up on a ranch, I’ve always had an affinity for a good pair of cowboy boots. There’s just something about the look, feel and sound of cowboy boots that brings me back to my childhood, working alongside my dad and grandfather on the farm. Even now, living in the city, I still wear my boots almost every day. They make me feel a little closer to my roots.

So when it came time to replace my well-worn pair, there was only one place I wanted to shop – Tractor Supply. With their huge selection of brands, styles, materials and sizes, I knew I’d be able to find my next perfect pair there. If you’re also looking for cowboy boots, whether it’s your first or fifteenth pair, read on for an in-depth guide to finding boots that fit your needs and style at Tractor Supply.

Brands You’ll Find at Tractor Supply

One of the best things about Tractor Supply is the wide variety of cowboy boot brands available. I browsed popular names like Ariat, Justin, Tony Lama, Durango, Laredo, Twisted X and Dan Post. With so many options, you’re sure to recognize a brand you like or discover a new favorite.

In general, I group the brands into a few main categories:

  • Well-known cowboy boot brands like Justin, which have been around for decades and become names people know and trust for traditional Western boots.
  • Work boot brands like Ariat or Durango that also make cowboy-style boots designed for riding, ranch work or construction jobs. These tend to use sturdy leathers and have features like slip-resistant soles.
  • Casual/fashion brands like Tony Lama or Dan Post that put more emphasis on unique colors and designs for everyday wear. These styles work for concerts, nights out, or pairing with jeans.
  • Value brands like Twisted X that offer lower prices without sacrificing too much quality. Great for parents looking for kids’ cowboy boots.

No matter your budget or intended use, Tractor Supply has trusted brand names to choose from.

Price Ranges to Fit Every Budget

Tractor Supply makes cowboy boots accessible at just about any price point. Boot prices typically range from:

  • Budget-friendly boots under $100 – These are often synthetic boots or leather boots without a lot of embellishments. Great for kids or occasional wear.
  • Mid-range boots from $100 to $200 – This covers a wide selection of boots in genuine leather with classic Western details. Ideal for regular wear.
  • Premium boots over $200 – Here you’ll find boots made from exotic leathers like ostrich or snake skin. Higher-end construction and details. An investment piece.

I saw children’s boots for as low as $40 and men’s exotic boots over $300. With such a wide spectrum, you can find the perfect boots for your needs without breaking the bank. Don’t hesitate to ask staff about sales or clearance items too.

Boots Available for the Whole Family

One of my favorite aspects of Tractor Supply’s cowboy boot selection is that they offer styles for men, women and children.

The men’s boots cover traditional Western shapes in rugged leathers along with more modern, casual designs with unique colors and details. I saw everything from classic black and brown work boots to eye-catching maroon and turquoise boots.

For women, they carry feminine boots in pretty leather colors with embellishments like rhinestones and embroidery. But don’t worry, you can also find women’s boots made for farm or ranch work, with sturdy construction and slip-resistant soles.

Kids’ cowboy boots come in cute small sizes and designs just for them. Durable synthetic materials ensure they can handle playtime on the ranch or in the backyard.

With this range, the whole family can rock cowboy boots together!

Diverse Styles for Various Needs

Tractor Supply stocks all types of cowboy boot styles, traditional and modern. Browsing through their massive selection, I found:

  • Traditional Western boots – These classic boots have tall shafts, sturdy leather, pronounced heels, and stitched Western-style detailing. Perfect for the ranch or a night at the rodeo.
  • Work/ranch boots – With their slip- and oil-resistant soles and hardy leather, these are made for enduring long days of tough chores and messy conditions.
  • Riding boots – Designed specifically for horseback riding, these have sleeker shafts, textured footbeds for grip in the stirrups, and ankle zones for mobility.
  • Fashion/casual boots – Modern boots with unique colors, embroidery and materials give you cowboy style perfect for pairing with jeans on a night out.
  • Waterproof boots – Some styles incorporate waterproof linings and seals to handle wet weather without damage.

No matter your cowboy boot needs, Tractor Supply’s diverse selection has you covered.

Leather and Synthetic Material Options

The materials used to construct the boots were another area where Tractor Supply impressed me with variety.

Leather cowboy boots are definitely predominant. Full-grain and top-grain leather provides that classic look and feel, along with durability. I saw boots in typical leathers like:

  • Cowhide
  • Ostrich
  • Snake
  • Alligator
  • Goat
  • Pig suede

They also utilize synthetic materials for more budget-friendly or lightweight options:

  • Faux leather
  • Polyurethane
  • PVC

For those wanting specifically vegan cowboy boots, Tractor Supply has brands using high-quality synthetic materials that mimic leather perfectly.

And for waterproof cowboy boots, they offer styles with waterproof lining or treatment to keep feet dry.

With this range of materials, you can weigh factors like price, durability, water-resistance and ethical concerns to choose what works for your needs.

Slip-Resistant, Steel Toe and Specialty Boot Options

In keeping with their identity as a supply store for ranchers and farmers, Tractor Supply provides work-specific cowboy boot features:

  • Slip-resistant soles – Many boots integrate durable rubber outsoles with grip and traction for stable footing on messy or uneven terrain. Critical for safety.
  • Steel toes – Some boots incorporate steel for protection against impacts, rolling objects, falling debris and other workplace hazards. Prevent injuries.
  • Barn/stable boots – With moisture-wicking lining and footbeds that resist odor and bacteria, these boots are designed for the muck of barns or stables.
  • Electrical hazard – For those who work with live wiring or electricity, some boots have insulation and protection against accidental exposure.

So if you need to check boxes for work features or safety certifications, Tractor Supply has cowboy boots that will comply with regulations.

Ensure Proper Fit with Sizing and Width Options

Since I’d be wearing these boots daily, getting the right size was crucial. Here are some of the sizing and width options available at Tractor Supply:

  • Men’s sizes range from 6 to 15, with some styles going up to size 17. Measure your foot and consult size charts for the brand you select.
  • Women’s sizes span 5 to 12 in most brands, some with extended sizing going up to 14. Again, use size charts for the best fit.
  • Kid’s sizes start at toddler size 8. Check height charts to get the right calf circumference and boot height for your child.
  • Multiple width options like medium, wide, and extra wide accommodate narrow to wide feet. Try boots on and walk around to ensure good fit.
  • Half sizes are available for that perfect in-between fit.

Don’t hesitate to ask staff for help measuring your feet or fitting boots. A good fit makes all the difference in comfort and performance.

Caring for Your Boots with Maintenance Tips

To maximize the life of my new boots, I wanted care tips specific to the leather type and construction. Luckily, Tractor Supply has resources to guide boot care and maintenance:

  • Sales staff are knowledgeable about the leathers used and can provide tips for cleaning, conditioning, storage etc. A valuable resource.
  • Brand websites like Justin or Ariat have extensive boot care guides covering their materials and designs. Tractor Supply links to these for reference.
  • Care product displays – The boot section features leather cleaners, creams, protectants and brushes for complete care. The right products keep boots looking their best.
  • Informative tags and inserts – Many new boots include tags with instructions for break-in, cleaning and polish. Handy guidance from the brand.

With this integrated advice, I can keep my new boots in great shape for years to come. Ask questions and take notes when you purchase your cowboy boots at Tractor Supply.

Helpful Retail Perks for In-Store Shopping

Beyond the boot selection and expertise, shopping at the store gave me helpful perks I wouldn’t get online.

  • Try before you buy – I could try on multiple sizes and styles and walk around to truly gauge fit and comfort. Crucial for big purchases!
  • Instant gratification – No waiting! I wore my new boots out of the store.
  • Special deals – I scored a discount for opening a credit card. Tractor Supply runs lots of cardmember and loyalty member sales.
  • Gift cards – I used a gift card from my birthday – can’t do that online!

For major purchases like cowboy boots, I really appreciate the experience and perks that come with in-person shopping at Tractor Supply.

Customer Reviews Provide Helpful Feedback

I like to read feedback from other customers before purchasing, especially for expensive items like boots. At Tractor Supply you can browse cowboy boot reviews online or via their app.

The reviews offer really helpful details on:

  • True fit – Are they narrow, tight, run big, etc.? This helped guide my size choice.
  • Comfort and break-in time – How long did it take to soften and mold to the feet?
  • Performance – Did they hold up well to ranch work, riding, walking or wear and tear?
  • Quality and construction – Were there issues with sole durability, stitching, leather integrity etc.

New Stock Arriving Constantly

Something I appreciate about Tractor Supply is that they replenish their cowboy boot stock frequently.

Every time I wander the boot aisles, I notice new styles, brands and leathers mixed in. This allows me to find fresh options and replace pairs that get worn out.

According to staff, they refresh selection:

  • Seasonally – New styles arrive each season. I shop for lightweight summer boots in spring and waterproof winter boots in fall.
  • Monthly – They get shipments of boots in weekly to monthly. Worth browsing regularly for latest options.
  • Around holidays – Boots make popular gifts, so they increase stock around Christmas, Father’s Day, etc.

Custom-Order Boots in Special Sizes

Recently Tractor Supply has expanded their options for customers needing hard-to-find sizes outside the usual range.

They now offer:

  • Extended sizing – Some brands make select styles in expanded women’s sizes, up to 14, and men’s up to size 17. Not all designs go this high, but ask!
  • Custom sizing – Certain high-end brands like Tony Lama and Lucchese will custom make boots to your exact foot measurements for an additional fee. Worth it for a perfect fit!

Full Western Wear Looks with Accessories

To complete my Western look, I depended on Tractor Supply for accessories to pair with my new boots.

Some of the options I saw:

  • Cowboy hats – Felt, straw, leather options from brands like Stetson and Larry Mahan. Essential for full cowboy style.
  • Belt buckles and belts – Make a statement with bold engraved buckles and tooled leather belts.
  • Wallets and cell phone cases – Accessorize with leather wallets or phone cases made from boots.
