Cowboy boots were born of necessity in the Old West. Round toes, higher shafts and riding heels meant comfort and protection for long days on the frontier. Style was simple: black with sparse stitching. Since the 1920’s, advanced stitching has given western boots personalized craftsmanship style along with their trademark comfort and performance.
“Today, the vast majority of cowboy boots sold around the world never come in contact with a stirrup. With lower tops and lower heels, these boots are made for walking. But they have taken on another, equally important role in modern life. They are a personal statement made public—a leather canvas for artistic and cultural expression.” – G. Daniel Deweese, True West Magazine
