This may not look like a cowboy boot, but it is a boot that launched a company to success in 1925, held off economic depression for The City of Nocona, and secured Miss Enid Justin’s fame as the Lady Bootmaker of Texas. When oil was discovered near Nocona, she reimagined the cowboy boots her factory churned out. She introduced oil field workers to the 16 Inch Lace-Up – a tough well-made boot that provided leg protection and would survive the rigors of roughneck work. Oilmen loved her boots.  They were tough as iron but as comfortable as kid gloves.
