Howdy! - With an overwhelming response to our "Cowboy Boot Fit Guide" we put together a small western boot Q&A page for your quick reference. Whether you just ordered a pair of cowboy boots or are looking to purchase, here's some tips in how those boots are supposed to fit.
Boot widths can be confusing because brands use different abbreviations. Normal women’s widths are either B or M, and men’s are D or M. Wide widths for women are either C or W, and men’s wide widths can go up to EE, or W. Unless you always get wide, try B or D.
Your heel needs to slip about 1/4” to 1/2” while your new boots are breaking in. This slip will help prevent blisters. Once the bridge of your boots break in, the heel slip will “go away”. It can take some getting used to for your first pair, hang in there!
Put a tea kettle or pot on to a boil, focus the steam through the spout or by angling the lid, hold the shaft of the boot over the steam for 20-30 seconds, the boot should be very warm inside, put the boots on until they are fully cooled. Repeat as needed!!
The best general rule of thumb: the shorter the shaft, the bigger the calf. If you have trouble fitting the shaft of the boot, try a shorter shaft height. Generally a shaft 11″ or shorter will be a good fit for anyone, even ones with a larger calf.
