Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
The word motorcycle describes a style of leather boot generally associated with bikers and the aesthetics of the motorcycling culture. Motorcycle boots are designed to provide protection. The typical motorcycle boots have long shafts and are generally made of thick, heavy leather with low heels and an adjustable leather strap or a harness across the ankle. Motorcycle boots may also include styles fashioned after the aesthetics of the motorcycle style but not necessarily intended for the activity of motorcycle riding.
Durango Boot RD510 11 Sturdy, Tough Boot

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.

This is a great boot. It wears nicely, no rubbing on the feet, but it does feel a half size too big. I wear a 16 so I was suprised to find it larger rather than smaller (a nice suprise). They are very comfortable for extended wear and the soles have a nice tread so they are acceptable during winter months.

I really like these boots. I ordered them in my regular size and had to exchange them for a half-size larger; but then they fit fine.
