Cowboy boots- not shiny, leather sole, simple work-type

I bet someone on here knows lots about cowboy boots. I'm looking for boots like you'd imagine woody guthrie wearing in the 50's. Simple, not shiny, ready to get worn in, leather soles, cool cowboy boots. Anyone know where (on the internet, that is) I can grab some?

I've already found these...

And sure. I'm a city slicker. But we're living in globalized times and no local customs are sacred.

You're already headed in the direction I was gonna send you. I have a pair of those in black for dress occasions and I'm wearing my brown, steel-toe, rubber-sole workboots right now. Both are Justin. Me likey. I have a pair of black leather boots I commissioned in Korea and they fit perfectly(as I would hope), them being handmade and all, but that might be more than you're willing to go through for boots. Good luck!

I should add to this... If you are planning on wearing a cowboy hat, there are certain times. Straw hats for when its warm, and Felt for cold weather/ dressin' up.

I think you should also get a fringed leather suede blazer to go with the boots;p

Oh man, I had to ditch the boots when we moved from Texas to California as a kid. The kids were cruel back then
