Chisos is turning heads with their comfortable cowboy boots for dancing, brown brush off leather, and one-of-a-kind comfort insoles.
These stunning chocolate brown boots boast a unique tanning process that makes the leather incredibly soft with no break in period, so you can hit the dance floor as fast as… umm, some funny Texas joke about being fast!
Fun Fact: The brown brush-off leather starts almost black, then
Chisos has taken technology you usually only see in performance athletic wear and created a handcrafted boot around their Comfort Insole System.
Not only are their products uber-comfortable, but they’re also ethically made in a small shop using only retired dairy cowhide (read: no calfskin). Best of all, the company gives a portion of top-line revenue back to land conservation efforts.

Finding the Perfect Fit
For dancing, perhaps even more than walking around all day, flexibility and bend are critical — especially on the ball of your foot.
Your ideal boots should have long-lasting cushion, but that doesn’t mean they have to be super thick. After all, it’s not like you need to run marathons in your two-steppers.
Boot Fitting Tips:
- Ensure your foot feels snug, but not tight. Your heel, however, should slip around a little when you get new boots. Once they’re broken in, the boot leather will become soft and conform to your foot so the heels stabilizes.
- Confirm the ball of your foot sits in the widest part of the boot so you don’t get squashed toes.
- The boot instep should fit more snugly over the top of your foot than a typical tennis shoe instep.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is hip hop a western dance?
If you mean Western, as in the West of Asia, then yes, hip hop is considered a Western style of dance. If you’re talking about Western riding, however, then hip-hop doesn’t exactly fit the picture.
Line dancing is very popular among Western riders and in Western-themed bars. Sometimes, a non-Western song will end up with a line dance, but line dancing and country music often go hand-in-hand.
Western riders can still enjoy hip hop music and dancing, so don’t be afraid to cut loose when your favorite song comes on the radio.
Q: What are Western dance types?
Country Western dancing is very popular, especially in Western-themed bars, thanks to the popularity of line dancing.
If you want to hit the dance floor, start with mastering the two-step (quick, quick, slow). From there, you can learn to add various spins and twists that will have you scooting across the floor with your partner in no time.
Hitting up a line dancing bar? Head over to YouTube and start learning the moves for some of these classics:
- “I Like It, I Love It” by Tim McGraw
- “Any Man of Mine” by Shania Twain
