How to Choose the Right Cowboy Boot to Meet Your Needs April 24 2017

Originally, cowboy boots were intended to protect cowboys while they were riding horses and herding cattle. Thanks to the vast popularity of western radio shows and cowboy movies in the 1920s, cowboy boots became a fashion item. Cowboy boots remain popular today, with more styles and colors on the market than ever. Understanding the common types of cowboy boots and the features they offer will help you purchase a pair of cowboy boots you’ll be satisfied wearing for years to come.

Pick a style category for your cowboy boots

When most people think of cowboy boots, they think of a classic Western style cowboy boot. A standard Western cowboy boot boasts a simple, straightforward design. Keep in mind classic Western style fashion cowboy boots look very similar to their classic Western style working cowboy boot counterparts but are manufactured differently. Work cowboy boots are designed with a priority on long-term comfort while fashion cowboy boots are designed with a priority on aesthetic. There are many comfortable fashion cowboy boot styles, but they won’t always keep your feet happy for 12-14 hours of standing the way work cowboy boots will.

Select a material for your cowboy boots

Traditional leather cowboy boots are constructed from a soft leather. Leather is attractive and durable, able to withstand tough labor for years. High-quality leather also requires more maintenance than artificial alternatives. For fashion forward boot wearers, alligator and snakeskin are great choices. Quality handmade cowboy boots are always made from high quality leather.

Select a color for your cowboy boots

Cowboy boots are offered in every color and pattern imaginable. Many cowboy boots come in black and brown which are considered to be versatile neutrals. Virtually everyone looks good in black and brown and will have no problem creating outfits to coordinate with neutral boots. Bright colors and patterns are a little more showy, allowing you to stand out from the crowd and make a unique fashion statement.

Find the right fit

When you try on cowboy boots, wear socks that extend the full height of the boot. Take care to select socks similar to the thickness you’ll usually wear with your new boots. Confirm that the ball of your foot rests in the widest section of the boot naturally to minimize stress to your feet. Then check the width of the boot and the space around your toes and heels.

Even with a basic knowledge of cowboy boots, it’s still important to try on a variety of boots before pulling the trigger. A high-quality pair of cowboy boots is not inexpensive but are well worth the investment. You want to make sure the boots you buy are comfortable and in a style you’ll wear often.
