Cowboy Boots Style

The first thing you should consider before buying your next pair of cowboy boots is the overall style you’re going for. Everyone is different, and their style preferences vary, and cowboy boots can come in a wide variety of styles. For example, are you looking for a dressier style or more casual? A vintage pair of cowboy boots are perfect for the more traditional cowboy, and there are more comfortable styles for those who are looking to protect their feet and provide support.

Cowboy Boots Material

Now that you have a firm grasp on the style preference of cowboy boots, you should think about the kind of material you want. Genuine cowboy boots come in many different materials and you may have a preference to the type of leather that the boots are made of. For example, authentic cowboy boots can be handcrafted from ostrich leather, alligator skin, or even hippo leather. This can also be a style preference and it’s important to understand that all genuine leather cowboy boots will be more pricey than other styles such as suede cowboy boots.

Cowboy Boots Toe Shape

The toe-shape of cowboy boots should also be a contributing factor before you make your purchase. You can find cowboy boots with a round toe shape, a square toe, a snip toe, and a pointy toe shape. The shape of your cowboy boots will be unique to your style. With Sheplers, you can find the perfect pair that you will love.

If you are looking for a new style of cowboy boots to switch things up in your wardrobe, you may want to try on a pair of square toe cowboy boots.

Considering the contemporary way, toe styles on cowboy boots are less about functionality and more about style. Some may prefer pointed or snip toed boots; however, if you have never considered square toe cowboy boots, Sheplers suggests slipping into a pair.

Square toe cowboy boots came to existence during the Civil War from shoemakers producing shoes for the cavalry. Because the narrow, point toe was more difficult to form by hand, shoemakers began making square toe cowboy boots.
