This Boot Campaign photo release comes on the heels of McCoy and Carter’s recently released book, The Real Win: A Man’s Quest for Authentic Success.”The real win means trusting the Lord and walking with Jesus no matter what,” write Colt and Matt. “That kind of faithfulness is possible for any man who follows God with all his heart. No matter what circumstances threaten him, a faithful man is the most truly confident man in the room.”
