Does anyone know if square-toe cowboy boots are OK for country western/two-step dancing? Here's what I'm looking at buying:

Ariat Rambler Cowboy Boots - square toe - Sheplers

Thanks..

I don't see why they shouldn't be alright for two-step dancing. I've gone to a few country-western places around here where they do different two-step and line dances and have seen square towed boots. Personally, I like the look of a more pointed-toe boot a bit better but that's just a personal preference.

The one thing I would recommend is making sure you get a comfortable pair, boots can be hard to wear for extended amounts of time if they're uncomfortable. In your price range, I'd probably look at a pair of Dan Post boots before I'd get an off brand. Dan Post makes an excellent value-priced boot, a step down from Tony Lama boots but a very good boot for less than $200.

I live in Nashville (well, just south of there), and even though you will see mostly pointed boots, those boots definitely will be OK for dancing. They look great!

I put them on craigslist and sold them quickly I think I prefer non-square toe boots. The square makes my feet look a little too big.

Looks like some sort of European boot. I'd suggest something more pointy but not too pointed. Most importantly don't get ones that have a a heel that the back of slopes forward. I forget if that's called a riding boot or if the straight down one is. Anyhow it's easy to stumble with the slanted heels. For men these look great!

Thanks SATX56. I did love those boots, but I can't dance in them. They are too big on the front. Also, I fly a Piper Cub and those square toes do not fit on the rudder pedals. So, another win for a 'pointed toe'.
I sure hate to sell them, but I can't justify having two boots yet.

*Funny thing, the Ariat boots I sold had a horseshoe imprint on the right toe. When my horse got stung by bees, he went berserk and I couldn't calm him down, so I jumped off and he stomped my foot. If I had any other shoes that day, i think I'd have severed toes. So, the buyer of those boots got a really authentic pair hehe.
