Gov. Bryant’s boots made for walkin’ and talkin’

These boots are made for talking, and Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant likes to brag on his comfy, customized footwear corralled through Cowboy Corner in Southaven.

“Well, I’m just very proud of them,” he said of the Lucchese boots with the state seal installed on the top front of each polished leather boot. “They’re just beautiful. These are cowhide — they’ll hold up.”

And they’re a welcome sight to DeSoto-based officials, who appreciate the mileage the governor’s boots give the county for its variety of merchants and products.

“He really knows where to get them, doesn’t he?” said state Rep. Pat Nelson, R-Southaven.
