Tony Lama’s new boots for summer
The Tony Lama Stars Collection—a new line of barrel racing boots—was inspired by the company’s work with the National Barrel Horse Association. These boots are designed to meet the needs of barrel racing competitors, but it turns out that they work great for anyone who’s looking for protection and comfort in the stirrup. Whether your’re a wrangler looking to replace those worn-outs in time for the spring season, or a dude who wants to be comfortable (and, let’s face it, look right) while riding, these boots can be a good choice.
Details: Rubber outsoles give you a superior grip in the stirrup; they’re flexible and resist oil, so you’ve got a better chance of keeping your feet when you’re not in the saddle. The rubber heel bumper is there for durability and the orthotic inserts are comfortable, removable, and washablt. Retail: $130-$160, available later this summer. Go to: the Tony Lama website.
