Garrett Yerigan | Professional Rodeo Announcer


"Finally a pair of boots that is as comfortable as they are stylish! And as functional as they are affordable! As an announcer that spends hours standing in one place, I've been looking for a pair of boots that could keep my feet and back pain free. Durango®, with the X-Treme Comfort Footbed™, is that boot."
