I've never understood why anyone would want to wear pointy toed shoes unless they were intending to put thier feet in stirrups. Most cowboy boots today have walking heels. What is the reason for the pointy toes?
Actually 'pointy toes" originated with the Spanish......simply cause they slip into a stirrup quicker and easeier than a square or round toe. (they're handy in a fight too...will inflict mucho pain in the crotch of an adversary)
In Western stores you will find a good selection high heeled boots "dogging heels" and walking heels usually on the 'roper' style boot. I've always preferred a slightly rounded toe....leave the sharp toes to the tourists.
