Twisted X Cowboy Boot Review
In July, 2011 I purchased my first pair of Twisted X cowboy boots. Our niece and her husband each had several pair of Twisted X cowboy boots, and recommended them highly, so I decided to try a pair.
Below: Twisted X boots model MBK0008.
Here is a description and some specifications of Twisted X boots model MBK0008 provided by Twisted X Boots (this link will open in a new window):
"This category is designed for the working cowboy/cowgirl. The heel is under slung but has a long base that gives you the stability and comfort you need for ground work. The heel rand is extended, just right, for a heavy banded spur and the shafts are taller for leg protection. The welt and mid sole are extended towards the waist for the cowboy who rides oxbows. If you work feed lots you'll be happy to know that the out sole is bonded, which eliminates the probability of “feed lot stuff” rotting the welt threads. We think this is the best using boot made for the working cowboy/cowgirl."
Description: Men's buckaroo boots, rust foot, olive top, round toe, 3/4 welted boot, rubber midsole, super slab rubber outsole, spur rest heel.
Leather: Genuine leather
Toe: U toe (round toe)
Heel: Cowboy underslung, spur rest
Insole: Moisture wicking, antibacterial, machine washable, cushion footbed, over stabilizing composite shank.
Outsole: 50k super slab working cowboy
Here are a few more photos of my boots while they were still new.

I got home with my Twisted X boots on a Friday night. The following Monday and Tuesday I wore my new boots to ship some yearlings.
I almost didn't wear them. They felt exceptionally comfortable wearing them around the house, but I was worried about wearing them away from home then having them start to hurt or rub my feet because they weren't broken in. I took a chance and wore them anyway.
They felt great the whole time. Both days were from before-light until late morning, involved a moderate amount of not-too-difficult riding, and plenty of time on foot running up and down alongside alleyways loading the yearlings onto trucks. In spite of the ground being uneven and covered with rocks of all sizes, my feet were very comfortable.

Since those first couple of days I've worn and/or ridden in my Twisted X boots nearly every day. While most of the riding has been moderate, there have also been days of harder riding (fast starts and stops, hard turns, speed over uneven ground, etc.). They are holding up very well.
They have also remained very comfortable, easily the most comfortable boots I've had in a long time. I have had several pairs of Ariat boots which have also been very comfortable for me, but I haven't been able to find Ariats with the riding heel, spur ledge, and taller top that I like. This model of Twisted X has those things, and the comfort, too.
Twisted X Boot Review - Summary
- I love the boots. They are comfortable on the ground and on a horse, and I like the tall tops, spurs ledge, and heel.
- The boots are also holding up very well. The "pull holes" at the top are not weakening or distorting. In addition, the areas where the stirrups rub when riding, as well as the heels and soles, aren't showing any signs of undue stress. By comparison, the boots I had before this (a name brand with a reputation as being made for the working cowboy) had to have the heels replaced about six months after I bought them, and also developed several holes in their soles at the same time.
- The above review was for Twisted X cowboy boots model MBK0008. Twisted X boots do vary by model, so not all Twisted X boots will necessarily be like the ones above.
