Fashion Boot Tips & Heel Caps


They aren't for everybody,  but for those that like them, boot tips and heel caps add a sparkle that makes a "New Boot" smile become a lot bigger. They can sometimes hide a nick, scrape or flaw in your favorite boots too. Not only protective, but ornamental as well. ...    OK, our customers are right! The protection offered for expensive boots - That's why most people email us pics of their fav boots! 

In our store, we have a rack of these additions so that a customer can see them all at once. They often ask which color tone will look best. Now, this is a matter of opinion, but sometimes I'll ask them to open their mouth real wide. They always look at me funny. I just tell them that it is best to match a gold front tooth, or the color of fillings, or ...! (Yer supposed to be laughing.  Actually, I will ask what color most of their jewelry might be.) 

(If you think this dental determination is terrible, ask us about how to make extra money raising rattlesnakes. We can sell Rattlesnake Eggs by the case.) 

All right, I've finished laughing. Have you? (I prefer trimming my eyebrows so I won't be accused of imitating Andy Rooney style of dry humor. My humor is sometimes just as lame.) Black boots will go great with any color. Pick the color of jewelry you most wear. Browns look really good with the gold, or antique gold finishes. Reds, burnt apple, or cordovans look good either way. Mixed jewelry?  Several of these decorations are both silver and gold, like most belt buckles! But, overall, gold is our better seller. 

Which style do I choose?  The first pair of tips I put on my boot were to cover a scar I chunked in the toe of my dress boots. So, if this is the reason for decorating, get the ones that will cover or distract from the scar. Most boots look fine with a pair that wrap around the front of the boot without taking away from what art is already established. Our current best sellers on this page are the AC-19T and the AC-23 series because they fit so many of the Western Fashion narrow toe boots. 

Putting an over the toe tip on a contrasting wingtip boot may or may not be a social no no. Yes, I have worn the heel caps without the toe tips. Heel caps are good to protect a boot from all the grinding that dirty carpet in a car or truck can inflict on any footwear while driving. No, you can't get a spur to fit properly with a heel cap on the boot. No, there is no warrantee on stones falling out. Check the bezels often to make sure they are taunt just like with all Turquoise jewelry you wear.  

The over the toe variety of tips normally stick out past the boot enough to let grime clear itself from beneath the boot tip. AC 01, 23, 27, 28, 29, 34, 35, 36,  often give a more pointed appearance to a J or R Toe boot. This selection of "over the toes" do not fit on # 6 or roper toe or wide square toe boots. They need a tip that carries around the front only. 

Heel caps do not always hug the exact lines of the boots' heel counters when you look at them off your feet. But they must fit closely. They are designed for some flex in movement. You need that, or a good marching rhythm.  

I could probably write ten pages on our experiences with boot decor. But, the easy thing is to just call and ask if your favorite tip or heel will work on your boot style. See, this isn't always as "cornfusin" as it sounds! We can even walk ya through installation. Or if the boots and tips come from us, we'll install before they ship to you. Or, we have had people ship their boots to us to fit as best as possible. You pay the shipping, but it ends all doubt. 

When we install the boot tips and heels for you, we shape the tips and heels before we try to attach them. Most are malleable and will bend for you. Stone trimmed tips and heels have less flexibility than those without stones, just due to the reinforcement needed for the bezels. Just go slowly and carefully. 

I like to also add a little tilt angle to the plane of the attachment area. (This means I twist the hole about to 45 degrees so the nail or screw goes in at an angle. This seems to hold better. Some soles, like the kids soles, need screws for a better hold. I almost always use nails for the heels because the nail heads lay more flat and are less likely to catch on anything than the screws. The tips attach to the top of the sole with one exception, and won't catch stuff. Use an awl, or an ice pick to begin a starter hole so application is easy. When you attach the heels, be sure you go under the rand of the heel and into the heel. Some boot styles look like they are in place, but are between layers. Again, just call if you have any fears and we'll walk you through them. 

Then, there are boot bracelets, chains and other fun things!      Kilties too.


Boot Toe Tips & Heels
Sometimes, also called Toe Rands. When a boot is factory made with a toe tip, it is normally made into the boot as the sole is injected onto the boot, or it is attached with nails. When we add one of these to your boots, we select either nails or screws, depending on the holding power of the sole material. Although the screw heads rise a little higher than the nails, they have more holding power in many soles. We also adjust the angle of the tip to closely match the angle of the toe of the boot before we attempt to attach. This makes for a better look and fit. If you are attaching your own tips, let us know the boot it is for and we can make some adjustments for you, before we ship the tips.

If you have questions about which boot tips and which boot heel caps look right together, we'll be as helpful as possible. Just call or email. Pricing includes our adjusting the metal boot tips and heels to make it easier to fit your boots. Toe Caps come with screws that we have especially made for these tips, to help pull them into place properly. Boot toe caps have more pressure exerted on then than boot toe tips and need the threads. It helps a lot to know which boots, and what size, they are being installed upon. (If you are wondering why we would not know what size boot we are sending you, over half our boot trim sales are for boots our customers already own.) 

People that wear Western dress boots do not just wear them to look like cowboys. Western boots have become mainstream footwear in offices, at worksites, and in the backyards of millions of homeowners. The arch support and quality craftsmanship allow us to go all day without sore feet and aching backs or legs. Scientific studies have been published on the benefits of good footwear, and on the fallacy of "cheap" stuff. 

Consider this quality for your wife and children, too. Especially during the growing years, the bones of the feet will form only as well as their footwear allows. Proper care when young will pay tremendous dividends in all their years to come. Tips and heels installed properly will not adversely affect fit of a boot. They can make an ordinary boot extraordinary.
