How Customers Think About Tecovas Ostrich Boots
When you consider to buy a product or to use a service, you will wonder what experiences other buyers had. Investigating the reviews of other users can lead to a better decision, and it is a wise thing to do as a consumer. If people are dissatisfied with it, they will complain about it and won’t recommend it. If they are happy, they will leave positive comments and share their great experiences. If we can compile and analyze those reviews, we can have an assurance about the product.
That’s what I am going to do for you. I used more than 500 reviews people left on the product pages of The Duke and The Jessie and summarized those data to generate easy-to-understand graphs and charts. Those visuals will allow you to understand the overall sentiments the customers had toward the products. They are also extremely easy to understand.
Positive Word Cloud
In a word cloud, some words will appear bigger because those specific words were more frequently used among customers. So, the bigger the more frequent, thus, if those big words are positive, it proves that most of the customers had a positive experience. Have a look at the word cloud of The Duke and The Jessie.
The word cloud above should have given you a good impression of their products. The most frequent word that actual customers used in their reviews was “great”. Other big words are also positive – “love”, “comfortable”, “best”, “beautiful”, “fit”, and many more. Just by looking at the word cloud, we can learn that most of the people were satisfied with their product. Among the words, “comfortable”, “fit”, and “quality” caught my attention because they are keywords closely related to the product quality.
The word cloud tells you what descriptive words people used for the product. There is another angle we can use to understand the Tecovas Ostrich boots customer reviews. That is by categorizing the reviews into a type of 10 sentiments. While I used the review titles for the word cloud above, I used the review contents for the sentiment analysis. The result is the graph below.
I was able to run my sentiment analysis code to find out what specific sentiments people had over the product. As we could guess from the word cloud, most of the review contents were positive. Of course, people shared some negative thoughts. I haven’t seen any review that is all positive. Despite the negative reviews, overall, people left positive comments for The Duke and The Jessie. If we summarize the sentiments simply by positive and negative, the picture becomes clearer.
As you can see from the above, the majority of the customers felt positive about the ostrich boots.
Another type of analysis I often use for a product review is using Google Trend. It is an extremely helpful service by Google that gives you a historical Google search trend. The idea is that if a product or a company can maintain or can increase its search volume over many years, it supports the quality of the product. If a product is bad, people won’t show their interest and eventually will never search for the product anymore. Then, how is the trend of Tecovas? Plus, how has people’s interest in cowboy boots in general been changed?
The blue line represents the trend of cowboy boots and the red line is of Tecovas. Although there are some swings, it has been able to support the baseline, and it seems that since June last year, people’s interest has started increasing. Tecovas has had smaller interest compared to cowboy boots because it is a specific brand name. However, the cowboy goods maker has been able to keep people’s interest since late last year. After the big spike, it seemed to be in decline, but it picked up again since March last year. I think it is an encouraging trend to see.
Benefits of Ostrich Boots
Tecovas used several different materials for their boot products. Among them, why would you want to choose ostrich boots? In this section, we will learn good things about ostrich leather. Also, for comparison, we will have a look at other types of leather. Please note that Tecovas sells not all of the leathers below.
According to this blog, ostrich is one of the most popular leathers for cowboy boots. The author pointed out that ostrich leather is considered a luxury item for two reasons. To produce ostrich leathers, it has to go through a long process. And, an ostrich does not have as much skin as a cow. Ostrich leathers can have different patterns since they have to come from different parts of the animal.
Many people prefer ostrich leathers that have durability as well as softness. Plus, ostrich leather is known to contain natural oils that help to prevent cracking or drying.
Cowhide is the most popular leather for boots, and cowhide leather is known to be the leather of the traditional cowboy boots. The reason is the cowhide leathers are extremely durable and difficult to tear or puncture. If you plan to use your new boots to work outdoors or do some messy works, I recommend cowhide leather boots. This type of leather is also less expensive than ostrich leathers, and it will last longer.
Being durable does not mean non-flexible. It is flexible. The blog points out that you can have it printed to look like other leathers such as snake, lizard, or even crocodile leather.
Goat leather is durable but inexpensive. One characteristic is that the leathers have many pores, which makes them breathable and softer. Goat leather is also flexible. You can have many styles and color options with goat leathers since they can be dyed. While ostrich leathers are soft from the beginning, goat leathers become softer over time as you wear them.
Snake leather has been gaining popularity and has been widely used in my products such as bags, clothes, and wallets. The blog explains that a pair of snake leather boots can be made using many different snakes. The most common snake kinds are python and rattlesnake. People prefer snake leather because they have unique patterns that you cannot find from other materials. Although snake leather cowboy boots are beautiful, they require a lot of maintenance and care. You will have to apply a boot conditioner to the leather. However, Tecovas does not have snake leather boots.
This particular leather is rare thus valuable. You might have heard the news regarding illegal overhunting elephants for their tusk and leather. There are the regulations that you can get the leather from elephants only after they have died of natural reasons. Elephant leather is also very tough and scratch-proof, which makes them a good fit for work boots. However, they need more care than cowhide leather boots.
Lizard and Caiman Alligator Leather
Lizard and caiman alligator leathers are popular for cowboy boots thanks to their clear tile pattern and glossiness. They also have rich and deep colors. They also require special care and maintenance to prevent cracks between the tiles. Tecovas has the boots of these leathers.
We learned that Tecovas Ostrich boots have received positive feedback from buyers. The trend analysis told us that people continuously searched the Tecovas brand, which can imply the good quality of the products. If you are looking for ostrich cowboy boots, I believe Tecovas can be a good choice.
