I will be reviewing a pair of boots I have owned for a few months now, the Dan Post Women’s Flat Iron boots. As any veteran boot-wearer knows, Dan Post is a well-known maker of fine western boots. I now own three pairs of Dan Post boots, and they get plenty of regular wear. I will go through all the key points of the Flat Iron boots.
First off, these Dan Post Flat Iron boots are only 7″ tall, which is quite a bit shorter than the usual 10″-12″ you see with many boots. That means they are a nice change of pace from the others, unique and original. If you are a lady who has been a little hesitant to buy a pair of boots because you think they will make you stand out too much, the Flat Iron boots would be a great introduction into the world of boots. The boots are available in four different colors – Bay Dirty Bull Kidd (brown), Black, Red, and Tan Mad Cat. I honestly thought all of the colors were gorgeous and unique in their own way, but I ended up settling on the Bay Dirty Bull Kidd ones, because I needed another pair of brown boots. I would say the best way of describing the way these boots look is that they are beautiful, good-looking boots, without trying too hard. Far too often I see boots with all sorts of glitter and ugly stitching that would be much better off without it. The Flat Iron boots are more simple and traditional, while still looking stunning.
The Dan Post Women’s Flat Iron boots definitely fit true to size. I normally wear a size 7.5, ordered a 7.5, and they fit perfectly. The boots are tremendously comfortable. Imagine your most comfortable pair of regular shoes, multiply that comfort level by about 4, and you arrive at the Dan Post Women’s Flat Iron boots. And for those of you familiar with boots, you will know how rare it is to find a pair of boots that are truly comfortable.
The price of shoes and boots is usually quite dynamic. With that being said, the price range of these Flat Iron boots is generally going to range from$140-180. Anything less than that is a steal; anything more is probably a little too expensive. I bought mine right at $160, but I can honestly say I would be happy with these boots even if I had paid $50 more. It’s hard to put a price tag on the satisfaction from owning a great pair of wonderful, high-quality boots.
Since I have only owned the boots for a few months, I can’t say how well they are going to hold up long-term. I did read some reviews where people mentioned that their Flat Iron boots had been extremely durable over a few year period. I will say that I have worn my boots while riding and doing other dirty work, and that they have looked like new afterwards, as well as keeping my feet comfortable throughout. If my other Dan Post boots are any indication, these boots are going to last a long, long time.
Well, hopefully I covered the key points that everyone wants to hear about before buying a new pair of boots. I have been extremely satisfied with my purchase of the Dan Post Flat Iron boots. They would definitely be one of my top recommendations if someone asked me which pair of boots they should buy for themselves or a girlfriend/wife/daughter/any lovely lady.
