Full leather lining. Single stitched 3/4 welt. Solid brass sole nails. Medium toe profile. Underslung cowboy heel. Imported.
Whether you're hitting the country side or the city scape, this boot from Dan Post is the best way to do it.

Now for the review. If you have been shopping these boots around, you, like me, will have been amazed at how the color of the boots shift depending upon which site you look at, and you will have also noticed that in some photos the bottom half of the boot is light and the top dark, while the next site shows a boot that is just the opposite. For what it's worth, mine came in with what I consider the true Bay Apache color, a medium to light brown with a bit of rust, more or less exactly as pictured on the Amazon webpage. The Caiman leather bottom is darker than the kid leather upper, which is a lighter brown, with almost a suede feel to the leather. The Caiman leather on the front of the boot is very soft and supple with just the right amount of give across the instep and vamp. The leather on the upper is the the softest and most flexible I have ever come across in a western boot and helps lighten up the weight of the boot. They weigh 24 ounces apiece, which is about four ounces lighter than my every day kicks. They are not shiny out of the box other than the natural shine of the caiman leather, and while I suppose you could polish the caiman to a high shine like lizard skin, they look fantastic just the way they are. The construction and finish are what you would expect of a $450 pair of boots. The fit is glove perfect and feel broken in right out of the box.
I own boots by a couple of other boot makers, but Dan Post will be my boot maker from this day forward. If my wife would let me, I would probably wear these to bed tonight!
Ive had these for some time now and heres a better report. The splice along the sides caused discomfort on the side of my foot for quit awhile but, finally stopped. The upper shank is a bit thin and I am concerned with the area on the Acheleas tendon area wearing through eventually. Other brands sew a piece of leather in that area for reinforcement but noticed Dan Post does not (a disappointing point for me). Caiman takes time to break in and I recomment monthly Lexol treatment to not only aide in break in, but keeping them conditioned. Watch for small holes in the hide placed in hard to see places, I found one I never noticed the last time I conditioned. It doesnt detract from the functionality of the boot but if your trying to make a quality boot, should not pass the Q&A process and is a no brainer to me. Dan Post, you need to monitor this or you will lose your standing with people like me who buy a lot of exotic boots.
I prefer the cowboy certified heel rather than full leather. The CC heel is tougher, more comfortable and you can wear them all day as apposed to walking on a full leather foot. The removable insole allows for unmatched comfort that Ariat is famous for. I see them making more high end exotics with this sole and thats a good thing but, Post dont leave out the removable insole...it makes the difference.
Im changing from 5 to 4 stars for the sloppy quality assurance that needs monitoring.
I have tried on DP's in 8.5D, and to me, that's how these fit. I recognize that caiman is a stiffer material than some others, and does contribute a bit to the narrow feel, but the length is clearly different than the regular dan post 9D.
I am returning these boots, but in all honesty, I am not too disappointed because as has been mentioned on some other reviews, the caiman seems to be a bit cobbled together from smaller pieces, most noticably around the inner instep (arch) of the boot.
Fit and finish to me is average. Stitching that wasnt centered on the boot pulls. Rough seams on the inside. Large unfinished relief cut where the vamp meets the shaft. Poorly glued down leather ontop of the foot bed (was a little lumpy, but would flatten with wear).
Compared to my other boots, a much beloved 10year old pair of Charlie Horses, these really feel more like an "entry level" boot constructed from "semi-premium" leather. With that expectation I think one would be happy.For caimans, I think these look great. Had they had 9.5D at the same price I paid for the 9D's, I probably would have reodered, but they are listed substantially higher. At that price I'll wait for a deal to come a long on something else. I really wanted to love these, but back to amazon they go. bummer.
