Justin Boot Company, exclusive footwear sponsor of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, announced March 24 an endorsement agreement with fellow Texan and PRCA All-Around World Champion Cowboy, Trevor Brazile. The signing is part of the footwear brand’s integrated and multifaceted dedication to the sport of professional rodeo via sponsorship components such as the Justin Sportsmedicine Team and the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund.

Brazile holds a long list of accolades admired and envied by many. Throughout his impressive career Brazile has earned six All-Around World Champion titles and a total of 9 PRCA World Champion titles by winning gold buckles in his mastered events of steer roping and tie-down roping. In 2007 he became the first Triple Crown winner in 24 years and just the eighth in history by winning the All-Around, tie-down roping and steer roping gold buckles. Brazile has been crowned the PRCA All-Around World Champion for six of the last seven years at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and set earnings records in both the team roping and tie-down roping events.
“Anyone who is involved in the sport of rodeo has either seen or experienced the tremendous service provided by the Justin Sportsmedicine Team and the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund,” said Brazile. “It’s an honor to be connected with a brand that gives back to the rodeo community in ways that really make a difference.”
As part of the partnership, Justin Boots will highlight Brazile in efforts surrounding the company’s charitable JST and JCCF programs as well as in product-focused marketing and advertising campaigns in 2009.
