George Strait has launched four new exotic boots with his collaboration with Justin Boots. The new releases are available in two caiman options — the Haggard, offered in tan and black; and two pirarucu variations — the Ocean Front, also offered in tan and black. “I’ve got some new exotics coming out that I’m thinking are going to be your new favorites.

These new boots are available for purchase at select retailers and online at
