Stepping out of my comfort zone in new Boot Barn boots!


I’ve been a very traditional boot owner for about 25 years. My first pair of boots were some round toed soft pink Justins that I outgrew before the age of two (I hate pink but my mom thought they were adorbs). Every pair since that has been round toed until 2005 when I joined the square toed bandwagon. Today, I have no less than six pairs of boots, none of which are too extravagant, fancy or girly.

Enter pair #7:  Shyanne boots from Boot Barn. Not as wide as my other boots but still a square toe nonetheless - #winning.

I have to admit I was skeptical to stepping outside of my comfort zone, but after trying them on and wearing them with both khakis and jeans I’ve got to say they look pretty dang sharp.  See what I mean?



I’ve worn these boots on several different occasions over the past three weeks and I have to say I have not been disappointed. They look great with jeans or khakis; I doubt I’ll ever wear them with a dress, but I am sure they would still look good (any volunteers to borrow my boots and sport a dress?) and even though they have a bit of an elevated heel, they are super comfortable to walk in. Additionally, they have some cushion on the inside so I’m confident that if I were wearing them for 12+ hours/day at a rodeo or stockshow my feet wouldn’t get sore or worn out. 

These are the Shyanne Butterfly Inlay boots (they also come in brown and pink). 

Look at the awesome turquoise details – I don’t know many ladies that don’t like turquoise. The lesson I've learned in this whole experience is not to be close-minded about anything. I stepped outside of my comfort zone and found something new that I like!

You all know what is coming now, don't ya!? If you want to win a pair of these sweet boots all you have to do is enter:

1. Follow Buzzard's Beat and leave a comment including which pair of Cody James or Shyanne boots you'd choose if you won
2. Like Boot Barn on Facebook and leave a separate comment 
3. Follow Boot Barn on Twitter (@bootbarn) and leave a separate comment
4. Follow me on Twitter (@brandibuzzard) and leave a separate comment
5. Blog or tweet about the giveaway and leave a separate comment. (Make sure to include @brandibuzzard and @bootbarn in the tweet)! 

THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON WEDNESDAY JULY 11 - SO DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE BLOG!

I know that many of you who entered last week will probably want to enter again, and that's fine, you'll still need to comment. This is my first giveaway and hopefully I'll figure out some way to make it more 'user-friendly'. Any suggestions on that?

Update: It's been brought to my attention that some people don't know if they're eligible to win. The only people who cannot win are other bloggers who are giving away Boot Barn boots. All others are fair! 

Good luck!

Until next time,
~ Buzzard ~

I love the look of the Shyanne boots and if I were lucky enough to be the winner I'd chose the Women's Butterfly Inlay Western Boots in black like you have pictured above and I do have the perfect skirt to wear them with!
