I was pretty excited when the nice folks over at the Boot Barn offered to send me a free pair of their new Cody James line of boots if I would review them and even more excited when they also said I could also give away a pair to one lucky reader in a June Dairy Month contest. I went to the website and eventually decided on the Distressed style of the Cody James boots.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was that the boots were exactly like those shown on the website. The stitching looked beautiful and the distressed look was just what I wanted. I tried them on and my next impression was how sturdy and supportive they were. This might be due to the genuine steel shanks and the Goodyear welt. For comparisons sake, I pulled one off and put one of my old boots back on. The wife and kids sure gave me funny looks as I walked around the house with two different boots on. There was a big difference between the two.
After wearing them for a while I can say the Cody James boots are much more form fitting and supportive around the ankle than boots that I have worn in the past. I really like the way my foot slides into place when I put them on. They are very comfortable to wear.
I have also been impressed with the quality of the workmanship and materials. The leather just feels thick and strong, like it will last a long time. I'm rough on boots and shoes in general. I've been wearing these every chance I get to see if they tear up or scuff easily. I've worn them to just about any place I've wanted to and they still look great with jeans or dress pants. I definitely enjoy wearing them.
I love ice cream. I know you love ice cream, too. To enter the contest leave a comment below telling me what your favorite flavor of ice cream is. It couldn't be any easier, right? I'll select one random comment to be the winner next Wed (June 27th).
A few rules:
Remember you can only enter once!
You have to be 18 or over.
Boot Barn ships to anywhere in the US and Canada (sorry no PO Boxes)
The fine folks at the Boot Barn have also told me that these boots are very popular and literally everybody (including the cows on my farm!) want a pair. For that reason if the winner's first choice of style/size is not available immediately they will have to wait until more stock becomes available or they can choose a different style.
So leave a comment with your favorite ice cream flavor and you might win your own pair, but if you can't wait, by all means head on over to the Boot Barn and order some now.
