R Watson Boot Company


The Qualities of Traditional Western Boots Are Still Made

 Randy Watson has been past President of Justin Industries. Today he has his own Boot Making business. He brings to you, through Cultured Cowboy, true handcrafted boots in the quality we've appreciated since 1983.

In 1983, Cultured Cowboy started selling Justin Boots. We opened our account with three men's boot styles, an orange looking cognac color with a bold toe stitch, a basic dark brown, a tannish color, and a few ladies sizes in one basic style. The salesman wanted us to put in a black one too. I remember that we just barely had the money to get all the sizes and widths in those first four styles. So we told him we could work in the black one over the next few months.

Wow, what a beginning. Since then, we have ridden a roller coaster ride of rodeos, Garth Brooks, Chris LeDoux, line dances, Y2K, Covid, and this year has been our most USA political challenge since our store began in 1974.  We saw our good friend Dennis High, come and leave as President. We enjoyed many of the changes, and admittedly, gotten aggravated at a few. (Just like family!) Randy Watson was doing a great job, and we were proud to offer Justin Boots, Tony Lama & Nocona Boots.

Warren Buffet purchased Justin Industries from the family when they no longer "in love" with it. Rarely does a business last beyond 3 generations. However, when John Justin went to Fort Worth, he discovered cement. He got the idea of bagging the mix & you add the water!  Made him rich. NO blame here!  It's just that mixing cement & baking bricks are relatively easy. Boot-making is a complicated mix of training, designing, and personalities and vertical supply line headaches.

SO the family focus shifted more fully into construction and the boots of Justin Industries eventually became Berkshire Hathaway. 

Well, Randy waited out his "non-compete" and has now formed R. Watson Boot Company. We  leave Justin Boots' recognition on this page because of the respectful searches so many fans have of the quality they enjoyed for generations. And because for decades, Justin Industries were among our heroes. Between all the brands, anyone and everyone could enjoy the perfect fit, and function, and durability of "Western Boots". Even Randy has a video explaining why he wanted to carry forth the tradition that made Western Boots great.

Today, high tech has met with tradition. Especially in Western Workboots!  New guts and new rubber based comfort soles adhered to leather uppers have made the R. Watson work boots you will see here to become among some of the best workboots in the affordable world. One of the benefits you'll appreciate is the extra heel slip in pad above the inside heel counter, that prevents the moisture wicking inside shaft lining from tearing apart under your heel, as so many other brands will.  This area takes a lot of pressure as you pull on or off your workboots. 

With R Watson traditional Western Boots, you'll find the best of all worlds!  Full leather insole covering prevents the former half cover from peeling away as you remove your foot from your boot. The midsole and outer-sole continue the arch support and the quality of handcrafted footwear.  Pricing reflects a production boot, however, there is so much handcrafting that they could be classified as semi-custom quality boot quality. 

Linings are the best available for your $$$. All the way to the toe. No "cheating" of pressed paper in the heel counters. No plastic toe boxes to sweat your toes.  Real leather stacked heels.  All this means that your feet are comfy, supported to the max and your entire body is less worn out at the end of your day! 

A customer came in to Cultured Cowboy and introduced us to R. Watson Boots. Together, we got online and then called them. They actually looked at our website and determined they would need some months to add us to their dealer network. In January, we met in person at the Dallas International WESA trade show.

R Watson boot company is a small yet growing concern. We believe in them and they are working us in. Below is a line up of their most popular boots.

AND !!!   -  this is exciting - They are working with us on prototypes of a Black Shiny Boot for Pilots.  And with the Rodeo Cowboy Lacers of the 1990's.  Thousands of you have asked for these boots to return.    If you are interested in either of these styles, Contact us so we can include you on a list of "first to be informed".  

We hope your future will be brighter in these times of uncertainty, with the addition of R Watson boots on your feet!

If R.Watson western boots are new to you, you have to try working in them to really understand how truly great they feel. You can be the first in your network to tell how an R Watson Handcrafted Boot holds up well, is supportive, and doesn't wear over the outside of your boot like so many brands we used to trust are doing. 

The boots are cut generously in size. They allow comfortable room for your arches. Until they break-in, they will slip on your heels. ( In fact they are always going to slip a little, the design is different than a short quarter shoe, so the slipping will not rub blisters on your heels. See the next paragraph too.) 

Although a "cowboy boot" is one of the first things you look for, when dressing for cowboy events, people that wear Western dress boots do not always wear them just to look like cowboys. The arch support and quality craftsmanship allow us to go all day without sore feet and aching backs or legs. As you walk, Western style boots pump air around your feet, which aids in dissipation of moisture, and even more comfort for you. This is why you do want some slippage on those heels!)

Laces on the lace up boots allow you to tighten or loosen, as your feet may actually change sizes during the day. Feet tend to be more swollen in early morning and late evening. For feet that do change a lot during your day, lacer boots are a good answer to your comfort issues. Laces also give the most ankle support. 

Consider this high quality footwear for your wife too. NO children's boots at this time.  Proper foot care NOW will pay tremendous dividends in all their years to come. Cheap made shoes create all sorts of problems years from now. And soft bottom tennis shoes, designed for active sports, were never made to wear all day. 

Cultured Cowboy is your dealership, offering all R Watson Boots available.  If you are looking for a style that you can't find, just call or email. We'll be glad to talk with you about the possibilities.  Please call for any more information on any RWatson boot or fit.
