    Chafing Cowboy Boots

    It looks like there's two different types of shafts for cowboy boots. Regular and then slouched. When I was a kid, while riding, if I wasn't wearing socks high enough, they would destroy my legs by the top rubbing against me while riding. Is there any way to stop the boots from chafing other than having to wear high socks?

    Wear shorter boots.

    I find it quite disheartening that I got an erection just by reading "Cowboy boots".

    I imagine the only thing worse than denim on sweaty skin is leather.

    And then someone brought up denim and leather on sweaty skin.

    I came.

    I am so ashamed.

    My sides. Seriously considering sigging part of this.

    OP: Just wear long socks if it's an issue...?

    I almost exclusively wear cowboy boots. Once you break them it there's no more comfortable shoe. And on the positive side an ankle holster holding your gun inside a cowboy boot fits wonderfully and when you're wearing jeans no one ever knows you're carrying.

    Why am I not surprised.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.
    - Thucydides

    There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.

    Cowboy boots ftw! I love mine!

    OP: Longer socks or a shorter boot, or just bear the pain until they are fully broken in.

    My Shimano Bike Sandals are superior. Although my tan lines on my feet look like a tiger.
