Hey, you're from Texas, what else would you wear, lol? I think I bought my first pair of Noconas in 1973 from Dicks western wear in Omaha. They were the sort of reddish colored Tejano lizard. Wore the damn things for almost 20 years before they gave in. Had numerous others over the years. Now have 3 pairs. I forgot that the black dress boots I wore with my Ranger class A' uniform are Noconas. Try the Tecovas. I think you will like them.I wear Western boots, period!!..I think I bought my first pair of Nocona’s right at the factory when ‘Mama’ Nocona was still runnin’ the place. Lost count of how many I have. Only buy American, though there is a small boot factory, if you’d call it that, in northern Mexico that turns out a real good boot too. Well that’s almost in the US>
No, made in Mexico.Are Tecovas’ American made?
Tony Lama, Justin, and Dan Post boots that are U.S. made are all made in the same factory and the brands are all owned by the same conglomerate. Much of the leather soled production of those three brands is made in Mexico. Lucchese is now in its third ownership group; no longer owned by the Lucchese family. I believe all Ariat boots are Chinese made.Per their website Noconas are still made in El Paso Tx.
Went to the red wing store yesterday for a new pair of metatarsals work boot. They were out of my size and instead of buying something else I had the salesman order them for me and mail them to my house for $182.00. They are worth every penny. I've worked in the steel industry for 37 years now and have only worn 3 other different makers of boots other than Red Wings and regretted it all 3 times. They buy us a pair a year unless you can show a pair is needed sooner. If your feet aren't happy, you won't be either.Yep, Red Wing steel toes for over 30 yrs at Exxon, Exxon bought you 2 pair a year, till some son Of a you know what started selling his. Always a no count. Good boots, I used to wear Justin Alligator, got a new pair in the closet , never wore.
