Go West: Fall’s Haute New Cowboy Boots

Cowboy Boots Are Having a Torrid Affair With High Fashion and We Are Loving It

This fall is ramping up to be one of the most eclectic fashion moments we’ve seen in decades. There’s no longer any pressure for the diehard sneaker girl to squeeze her size-eights into a pair of pointy pumps. We’ve got no shortage of options for fresh, intelligent design, so see what resonates and DO YOU. One of our favorite trends in footwear is how cowboy boots–once a proprietary staple of the American Southwest–are showing up in all kinds of high-fashion manifestations. It may seem strange at first, but actually, the haute cowboy boot brings out the best elements in design and artesanal construction from both the European atelier and the prairie boot-maker. One thing both parties agree on is that a comfortable, durable boot is always in style.
