Contest No Longer Active
The fine folks at Boot Barn have quite a treat for one of my readers. One of you will win your very own pair of the popular Cody James boots. I'll tell you how in a minute. Don't worry if you're not a cowboy; these boots are just as great for heading out to a bar for a country show or throwing a few lines down by the farm pond.
I don't just say this because they hooked me up with my very own Distressed Square Toe boots, (the winner can choose from any of the Cody James boot styles) but these are by far the most comfortable pair I've ever owned. They're every bit as supportive through the ankle as any work boots I've owned too. They have a breathable lining and insole and that came in handy recently as I wore them for an all day outing at my family's rural land in South Mississippi. It was one of those 98º with 95% humidity days that make the deep south such an oven in the summer. TMI maybe, but my feet didn't sweat at all in these boots.
Even walking on our hilly land and around the muddy edges of one of our ponds as my son and cousin took a dip, the heels didn't slip. Now sure, I haven't put these through the paces just yet - I'm no cowboy, obviously - but they've been perfectly suited for every activity I've used them for.
I'm one of those people who'd just as soon go barefooted all the time or wear the lightest shoes possible, but the weight of the boots is nearly unnoticeable. They fit closely but not tightly around the leg and they move with me as fluidly as my jeans.
Oh, did I mention the look? These boots look great! They're rugged and understated, but have beautifully crafted stitched designs on the sides. I couldn't have found something more perfectly suited to my style. They have some flashier numbers, to be sure, but I love this particular look.
Now, if you want to go ahead and find your own pair, head on over to Boot Barn and find your fit. Or you can try your luck with Farce the Music first!
All you have to do to win your own pair of Cody James boots (again, the winner can choose from any of the Cody James boot styles) is comment here, on Facebook or Twitter and tell me the name of your favorite song about western life, cowboys or boots. That's it. Get your entry in by Monday, July 16. I'll choose a name from the hat and announce a winner next week. However, due to some issues with contests in the past, after I announce the winner, they'll have to email me their information within 3 days or the boots will go to the next selection (and so on).
So get on it! Tell me your favorite western song, whether it be a Bob Wills classic or a deep cut from an early 90s Garth Brooks album. Let's have it!
