You don't have to work on a ranch to wear roper boots, although it wouldn't hurt. Over the last few months, we've started seeing them hit the mainstream fashion world, and we think they're here to stay. Chelsea boots had a chokehold on men's fashion close to a decade ago, but it's the ropers' turn now. This pair from Tecovas are designed in Texas and then handcrafted in Léon, Mexico. It's the brand's first wedge sole roper built for rugged performance with a focus on comfort. The one-inch Vibram 4014 Cristy outsole provides stability and excellent traction for any terrain. With treated leather and weather-resistant seams, these should be easy to keep clean. Wearing denim-on-denim may be a little too on the nose, so freak these with a heavyweight hoodie and some lived-in fatigues for an updated approach.
