Tony Lama has
been making boots designed for ranching, roping and
riding, since 1911. Over the years, Tony Lama Boots
have evolved into technically advanced, fashionable
footwear that set the standard for your Western
lifestyle. With full welt construction
and a full cushion foot bed, the Children's Western Boot is definitely designed for
children on the go!
Tony Lama boots
have used their same lasting systems for a hundred
years. If you have worn TL boots before, get your
usual sizing. If not, call Cultured Cowboy and we'll
walk you through the sizing process, but generally,
go 1/2 size smaller than most dress shoe sizes.
Also, remember children's feet grow quickly!
Your Tony Lama
Childrens boot should feel like a comfortable handshake
on the front of their foot. Boots slip on your heels.
They are designed to! They will not rub blisters as
they do, because they are designed with a heel
counter that allows slippage. The slipping pumps air
around your feet for more comfort. The top,
including the instep area, will keep a well made
on their foot while their run around school or the
farm. (I know
Momma told you never to get a shoe that slipped.
That's because in a shoe, the top of the heel must
cup your cuneiform bone. Western boots, with their
special design, developed over centuries, are made more
forgiving & more comfy than department store shoes!)
We recommend a
good Thorlo sock to go with your boots. Thorlo socks
are engineered for feet in boots. (Everything from
sweat dissipation to padding in the right places.)
And always use cleaners and conditioners to make
your boot leather last a long time. And
remember you want to have your boot
repair shop replace the heel pad as soon as it wears
thin. This keeps the boot from wearing into the heel
block, and thus breaking over at the heel
