Roper Logo
Roper is the largest manufacturer of both footwear and apparel within the western industry. The company’s casual clothing and footwear for men, women and children are sold exclusively through western retailers across the United States in more than 2,000 stores. Roper's vision for growth can be traced all the way back to the young man who founded the company 59 years ago. Fresh from the service to his country during World War II, Sam Mandelbaum returned to work in production and merchandising at Miller Western Wear. In 1948, after being overlooked for a promotion, Mandelbaum decided to strike out on his own. With enthusiasm, his knowledge of the Western wear industry, and dedicated work ethic, Mandelbaum, with the financial backing of Jack Karsh, opened Karman Inc.

In recognition of a lifetime of contributions to the industry, Sam Mandelbaum’s peers named him to the Western Image Awards Hall of Fame in August of 2003. The leadership of Karman Inc. is now in the hands of Sam’s son, Gary Mandelbaum. Gary shares his father’s vision for growth and continues to make the corporation successful. Karman Inc. is unique in the industry of being one of the only Western apparel and footwear manufacturers and distributors for Roper brands. In January of 1986 under the design leadership of Nancy Leavitt, the company launched the Roper brand with a big splash at the Denver market. Acceptance for the brand was immediate from retailers and consumers alike. A few short years later in 1993, Roper again broke the mold when it introduced its own line of footwear called Horseshoes, unique hybrid combining tennis shoes with boots. Roper managed to create a new niche in the footwear market. Today, the footwear category accounts for about 40 percent of Roper’s total sales volume.

Whether you are looking for casual shoes or hard working boots, Roper has got you covered. Roper designs and manufactures a wide array of boots and shoes for every aspect of the modern cowboy’s life. Roper’s beautifully designed boots and shoes are made from the highest quality materials. From rugged work boots to fun western fashion, Roper boots are made to last.

This looked absolutely hideous on. I am 5'6" 130lbs and a 32D: the top was super tight and the rest was way too big. Very unflattering. I don't like skintight clothes so I opt for a more flowy look but this does not work! I returned immediately.

I really like the style of these boots. However, the picture online didn't look like what I received. The boots I received were much lighter in color. The outside looked and felt more like plastic than a fake leather. I returned these boots due to color, look of plastic and the inside seam was ripped. Maybe someone before me had tried them on and tried to cram their to large of a foot into the boot. I was very disappointed with this purchase, especially since price was high for the quality.

Well made. Small platform. Adorable, but they run small. I was excited because I'm a true 10.5 and I actually found a 1.50, but it felt more like a 9.5-10. Go up a full size.

Bought these to replace a well-worn pair of size 9 Merrell moc-style clogs (which I think have been discontinued). The size 9 pair was WAY too small. I was going to order a 9 1/2 pair but decided the 10's were probably better. I'm glad I did - the 10's fit fine. Nice shoe!

I was really impressed with the fit and comfort of these boots! Been searching for hot pair of cowboy boots that will look good with dresses and these shoes fit the bill. I do think that the material isn't going to hold up for more than a year but you get what you pay for. Excited to wear these to a streetdance over rodeo weekend this summer!

I love this! I'm 6'-1" and the XL is just fine. It isn't super shape-flattering (ie I have a nice waist but this hides it completely), but it does show off shoulders and it's going to be great with my faded, flared capri pants once the snow melts. The fabric is very thin and lightweight, which means it won't be too hot once warm temps set in. Will have to find some type of tube bra that works with this ...

These are gorgeous boots. I love them. Great with jeans or dresses (then again, what cowboy boots aren't?). Great color, natural light leather. Stitching is really pretty. I thought I would mind the yellow thread but I don't - it just blends right in with the color of the leather. They are narrower than is typical for a medium width (they are a bit tight on me and i have medium to narrow feet), but for me they will be perfect once they stretch a bit after getting broken in. Length is true to size.

These were a Christmas present for my 9 year old son. He has worn them every single day since. He is hard on shoes so considering the abuse they have faced they've held up well. They are sharp looking boots. For the price I'd definitely order them again.

These boots are super cute. I like how the fringe moves when you walk. The material felt soft and they are very lightweight. I was looking for a more durable outdoor boot so didn't keep them. The fit seemed true to size with a wide feel.

Perfect to slip on when it’s rainy and muddy outside. My husband is typically a size 10 in shoes but the size 10 in these boots was too big! He went down a whole size and now they fit perfectly.

I thought this boot was so cool I just had to see it in person. It didn't disappoint. However, the leather (if it was leather) was like cardboard. Unfortunately they have to go back.

I purchased these to replace my well worn, actually 20 year old worn out, boat shoes which are officially deceased and beyond further repairs. Primarily I will wear them in the yard in South Carolina where we get a lot of rain. They are the traditional boat shoe leather ... meaning on the thicker side and a bit stiff. I've been wearing them for a couple of days and they are already easing up. They appear to be very well constructed and are comfortable considering there are not yet broken in. Good boat shoes which hold up wet and dry do need to go through a break in period after which they will fit beautifully. I am happy with purchase.

The color is nice, but I had to return these. The shoes aren't proportioned very well. The toe box is very narrow and tight. The heel is too wide, so they slip off. They seem more pointy in person. They could use more cushion, I wouldn't want to be on my feet all day wearing them.

I took a chance on these, as no one had reviewed them at the time of purchase, and I'm glad I did. I love the style, and they are quite comfortable. The material does have the feel of fabric rather than leather-like, but that's ok. I love the straps, and the brown color was exactly what I was looking for. I was able to wear them comfortably right out of the box. I have no foot issues, other than a high arch. These feel roomy enough, while not too slack. I've worn them many times already and hope they will last for a few years at least. Time will tell. Thank you Zappos!

These shoes are just what I was looking for in a Western-styled low cut, low-heeled bootie. They fit very comfortably right out of the box, and they look great with skinny jeans and dresses/skirts. I'll consider getting them in other colors!
