Roper style boots used to just come in one simple setup. Flat heel, short top, round toe. While you still mostly see this same classic configuration; you also get a greater variety in leather choice, fancy stitching, and inlays. We also see a little expansion into the squared off toe now and again. A squared off toe? can that really be called a Roper style then? I guess if you squint a little.. maybe. do not get me started on so called roper style shoes.
