I’ve been obsessed with cowboy boots since I was a little girl. Even though I grew up in Miami, one of my favorite family vacation spots was always Colorado. I loved visiting the mountains with my parents, riding horses and, of course, wearing cowboy boots. My love from the Western footwear continued well into my adulthood. So when I was visiting Dallas 15 years ago for a friend’s wedding, I asked a local where to find the most authentic cowboy boots. They directed to me to a shop and I’ve been wearing my brown cowboy boots with everything ever since.
I get so many questions about where to buy cowboy boots every time I post an outfit in one of my pairs on Instagram. So I figured it was time to do a full blog post on the country footwear trend. I broke it down into where to find authentic cowboy boys, fashion cowboy boots and Western booties. I hope it helps ya’ll!

fashion cowboy boots
If you don’t care about authentic cowboy boots, thanks to the Western trend being so popular for the past couple of years, there are tons of fashion versions to try. My favorite studded boots from last year are 60% off right now! I rounded up some more cute country styles above.
I have Western booties in just about every color and heel height. I wear my stacked ones with a smaller heel for daytime and more casual looks. And I wear my stiletto booties with dresses and jeans for dressier looks. I just added these cream Western boots to the collection and love them so much that now I want them in black. I told, I really do have a thing for the Western trend.
And just in case you wanted proof that I’ve always been obsessed with cowboy boots…
I think the only thing that’s changed since the ’80s is that now I can drink wine while wearing my fave boots.
