Harness boots are a type of Western-style footwear that features a non-adjustable arrangement of leather straps around the ankle area and two metalrings, one on each side of the ankles. Originally conceived to hold in the spurs on cowboy boots, the harness is now a decorative part of the design that conveys a rugged look. Harness boots are most often made of leather with a range in height between 10 to 18 inches.

I had a pair of western-style slouch boots that were in desperate need of repair. I had to make a decision of whether I wanted to spend the cash to repair them or replace them all together, so I went looking to see if it was worthwhile to just replace them with a brand new boot.I don't own a car, so my shoes need to hold up to lots of walking around. I purchased these with that in mind, since they're boots designed for moving around and not just looking good.Normally I wear a 7.5, but I'd heard that these ran a little big. There was no 7.5 in stock, so I took my chances with the 7. I'm glad I did. The size is absolutely perfect. I have normal-narrow feet, so the width was excellent for me. I also have small calves, so the smaller circumference of the opening was really ideal for me. As far as walking, the shoes are very comfortable, but the shafts are so stiff that they rub against my shins in a slightly painful way. I'm hoping that over time this will stop happening, like it did with the pair I replaced. I assume this is because the leather is so stiff and firm and just needs to soften up.I'm not doing anything more hardcore than walking in these, so I'm not sure what all they can handle. They do hold up well to rain, which is nice here in the tropics. They are pretty stiff in the sole, so don't try to run too hard in these.

I love the Durango Boots they feel so comfortable and I get a lot of compliments on the look and style. Great Boots to wear everyday or for special occasions. I wished the Boots had a hard heel so I plan on taking them to a Shoe Repair Shop for the hard heel. Thanks again for a great Boot at a great price!!
