Ariat men's boots are available in pull-up or lacers in either Western or English style.
Note that 'pull-up' covers (the kind traditionally used with cloth diapers before there were disposables) can be slightly more difficult in terms of aligning the liner with the cover, but a little practice is all it takes.
Pull-up diapers or plastic training pants can be purchased so that the child can remove them him or herself.
Pediatric and orthopedic researchers have agreed in the last decade that babies do best learning to crawl, pull-up, cruise, and walk when they are allowed to sport bare feet.
If you're not strong enough to perform a full pull-up, you may want to start with a simple bar hang, holding your body in place with your chin above the pull-up bar.
