    I received my first pair of western boots yesterday; they were a pair of Laredo 6691 Men's size 13EW. I had never owned a pair of any kind of boots before. Unfortunately, the boots did not fit me. I am sure that my feet will fit into a size Men's 13D. I am willing to trade my pair for pretty much anything in a size 13D. I will also possibly be willing to just resale the boots for cash. I am located in Raleigh, NC. I can meet up or ship the boots. If you are interested, then you can reply to this thread or send me a PM.

    Quoted from Manimal:

    It goes without saying...those boots are well used. Did you buy them that way?

    Yes, I bought them second-hand. I think that they look better in person than what you would expect

    Quoted from Mister-Whiskers:

    Wasnt April Fools Day on Sunday?

    I don't think that I understand the context of your post, but yes I am being serious about selling these.

    Quoted from boscokid:

    Chinese made cowboy boots. John Wayne would down vote this thread

    I will happily support any company or product that I am interested in that is domestic, but it is truly hard to find anything not made overseas.

    Quoted from fosaisu:

    Put these on Craigslist - bet you’ll get some amazing offers.

    I already have put them up on craigslist. I have sold at least 3 separate items on craigslist before, as well. I even offered to trade with another craigslist seller who had boots in my size, but he was not willing to accept anything besides cash

    Quoted from robin:

    Sorry, but I have removed your marketplace ad for these boots.
    While I can appreciate the cowboy boot craftsmanship, I don't think this type of stuff belongs on Pinside. This is a Pinball site after all - I mean, before we know it people will be listing baby clothes, oak furniture and their old Dolly Parton cd collection.
    I hope you'll have more luck selling these via Ebay or Craisglist.
    Thanks for understanding!

    My bad, Boss. I completely understand and I apologize for misusing my right to the market place. I should have known better...

    Everyone has turned this thread into joke, but I am still seriously trying to do something with these boots and hopefully get a pair that fits me. At this point, I may as well donate the pair to a local thrift store. I am just upset that I threw away money on these boots that don't fit my feet

    Quoted from mcluvin:

    Well, only if AVH7401 is cool with it. I don't want to be that guy who swoops into another man's boot sale and ruins a deal.

    Be my guest! I would be more than glad to see some productive action come out of this thread

    Quoted from crlush:

    Take them to a shoe repair shop and see if they can stretch them for you, i have a friend that wears 14s and his right foot is like a 14 1/2 he said that big of shoes sont come in half sizes so store he goes to has a tool that will stretch them.

    I really appreciate you giving me real advice. The problem is the boots are too wide for my feet, not too narrow. The length of the boot is fine. The boots I purchased are size 13E (E means "wide") and I probably will fit into a size 13D (D means "medium"/regular). And also to my understanding, most shoe manufactures do not make half sizes for men after size 10. Boots have both a number and letter size. The number part refers to the length, while the letter part refers to the width of the boot.

    I am going to find myself a pair of used western boots that fit me. I will not post back on this thread until I have made my word. I will post a picture or two of my new boots and everyone will love them! I will show up everyone who ruined my honest attempt to exchange my boots!

    I purchased another pair of used western boots last night. As I promised in my previous post, I will return to this thread with an update once the boots arrive and I get the chance to try them on.

    Quoted from MikeTangoIndia:

    Those are much much better and look like decent boots but please for the love of god don’t wear your pants tucked in lololol. Pants over the boot looks waayyy better IMO. You may need some proper jeans that are meant to wear with western boots.

    Thank you! The seller of this pair said that the boots were in "like new" condition, and they were! There is no damage or wear to them that I can see. The style/model I have can still be bought new at retail price and I bought mine for a fraction of the price that they are worth!
    (Also, about the boots over the jeans look, I wore them for the first time this morning to church and I wore the pants over the boots to look more formal. I however still believe that boots over the pants look better for a casual look look such as a t-shirt and jeans)

    Quoted from pinmike:

    $35, but I may be willing to go lower if you are being serious.

    #113 1 year ago

    If you are really serious about buying the boots, please PM me and we can move on from there. pinmike

    Quoted from spfxted:

    SOLD!....In 3....2....1....

    Quoted from Travish:

    Only 2 weeks? He should have priced them higher.

    I do not understand what either of you are saying; could you please explain? spfxted travish

    Quoted from jmountjoy111:

    I don’t need any boots but by chance does anyone on this thread know where I can get a reasonably priced baywatch.

    Try craigslist, brother. jmountjoy111

    #137 1 year ago

    Pinmike and I exchanged a few PMs, but then I lost contact with them. The sale never progressed, unfortunately. mcluvin

    #138 1 year ago

    I unfortunately missed two potential craigslist buyers. The first buyer was lost because I failed to contact him back soon enough and the other buyer offered me too low of a price to sell for. The boots are still for sale, of course, if anyone is interested.

    Time to hang it up here. This is a pinball forum.

    You are right, brother. I didn't realize that I was being obnoxious. Thank you for letting me know and I hope that everyone who participated in this thread has a nice weekend!

    Quoted from Cserold:

    Somebody needs to buy these boots then create an annual “post of the year” poll thread and winner gets the boots each year. I’ll pay for the shipping

    Quoted from pinmike:

    Sounds good!! AVH7401 how much for the boots pal?

    Quoted from RustyLizard:

    I have 2 life experiences with boots like these and luckily they were on the feet of friends and will never be on mine. What I propose is that we buy these as a community and pass them around collecting autographs of Pinside members. We could call them the Boots of Destiny. Certainly this is an original idea and I would chip in 5 bucks for a chance to sign them.

    I think this idea already came up, but I guess it may have fell through rustylizard

    For anyone who can fit into size 13 EW boots or has a friend in need of some boots, here is the craigslist ad: raleigh.craigslist.org link

    Final Update:
    I apologize for bringing an old thread back up, but I just wanted to report that I finally sold the boots after three months. I sold them for less than the asking price, but something is better than nothing. I was planning on donating them to the local thrift store this weekend, anyways. I guess you could say that I "booted" them from my closet!

    Guess who got a *USED* vintage fringed suede jacket last week? All I need now is a belt buckle and a cowboy hat to complete my suburban cowboy look!

    Quoted from BillySastard:

    With those fringes I'd say you're going for the gay suburban cowboy look.
    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    I am trying to not take offense from your post, but I would like to say that it takes a lot of balls to wear a jacket like that as a high school student... billysastard

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    Like I said, what do I know though. Wear what you like and be you. . . remember not to tuck you pants into your boots though!
