Pinto Ranch offers a variety of toe shapes and heel styles so every customer can find a boot well-suited for his or her particular lifestyle and personality. See our full gallery below.
COMMON TOE TYPES
A traditional rounded western toe, it is timeless and elegant.
Snip toes are pointed toes with the very tip squared off.
A modern take on the classic western style, this square toe is one of our most popular.
Originally designed to easily slide into stirrups, pointed toe boots are now often seen as a more formal option.
Men’s Cowboy Boots are typically sized in B, D and EE widths.
B = Narrow
D = Medium/Average
EE = Wide
Not so fun fact: Our feet get wider with age and weight. This can change the size/length as well as the width measurement of your foot. This also means the cowboy boots you bought 10 years ago might not be the size you need today. Feel free to call us and talk to our boot experts if you have any questions about buying boots!
How to try on boots
When trying on your boots, you’ll want to check to make sure they’re the right fit. We made a perfect fit checklist for you that will help assure you’ve chosen the right size.
1 Did your foot audibly pop into the boot?
2 Is the ball of your foot in the widest part of the boot?
3 Is the point of your toe in the middle of the toe box or about 1 inch from the end?
4 Do your toes have wiggle room?
5 Does the boot fit like a firm handshake across your instep?
6 Is there a 1/4 inch slip in the heel?
Check out some common frustrations boot customers have when searching for their perfect fit.
1 High Foot Arch?
We suggest a boot by Stallion Boots as they tend to have a looser instep and the Stallion Zorro Boots feature a zipper for easy entry.
2 Two Different Sized Feet?
60% of people have one foot bigger than the other. If this is you, we suggest matching the size of your larger foot. Using a cushioned insole or thicker socks will make up the difference for the smaller foot.
3 Flat Feet?
For our flat-footed friends, Roper boots will be the most comfortable. Ropers are made to fit more like a shoe with a low walking heel and round toe.
4 Athletic Calves?
All calves are not created equal. Lucky for you, we have many western boot shapes and sizes. A Roper style, Stallion Zorro or any boot shorter than the traditional 12” shaft height should do just fine. We can also put the boots on boot stretchers to stretch the shaft, but only by about 1” wider. Any more stretching may damage the integrity of the boot.
Pinto Ranch is honored to carry Black Jack Boots. Black Jack Boots have been hand-crafting boots since 1996 using hand selected top quality graded leathers to ensure fit, comfort, and durability. Black Jack Boots are made with durable 10-iron outsoles, 4-iron welt, and 9-iron insoles, utilizing a 5-inch, 16 gauge, double ribbed steel shank protected with top quality side-bend leather, and secured with sixty lemon wood pegs for lifetime support.
Pinto Ranch is honored to carry the Lucchese brand. A time-honored boot maker with a tradition of quality craftsmanship. Lucchese boots generally run true to size but keep in mind that your boot size may be a bit smaller than your dress shoe size. The more you wear your boots, the leather will contour with your foot, personalizing your fit. Take a look at the size charts below to find your perfect fit.
Pinto Ranch is honored to carry the iconic Rios of Mercedes brand that has handcrafted premium cowboy boots for more than 160 years. Rios boots generally run true to size but it's important to note that your boot size may be smaller than your dress shoe size. We recommend going up a 1/2 size. Keep in mind the more you wear your cowboy boots, the soft, supple leather will mold to your foot and get more comfortable over time.

Pinto Ranch proudly carries this iconic brand that has crafted the highest quality boots for more than 160 years. Here’s how to get the perfect size Rios of Mercedes cowboy boot fit.
Tips for Getting The Perfect Rios of Mercedes Fit
If the size is correct, you should have to stand and give a firm pull to get them on your foot.
When the boot is on your foot, the fit around the instep should be snug but not uncomfortably tight.
The ball, the widest part of your foot, should fit in the widest part of the boot
Finally, stand up and step down into the boot. The ends of your toes should not touch the sides of the boot.
