Don’t have a cow! A blog post about the history of cowboy boots in fashion.

In 2005 I had my first brush with the popularity of the Cowboy boot.  I was in the orchestra for the stage show Oklahoma! at the high school I attended.

I had seen so many people prancing around with beautiful Cowboy boots on.  That was when I first fell in love with shoes.

I told my mum that the people in the orchestra needed to have cowboy boots.  So we went to the local Number 1 Shoes and bought some black leather Cowboy boots.

She came to the opening night, looked at our feet and realised I was the only one wearing Cowboy boots.  Luckily she just laughed it off.

I still have my Cowboy boots, but sadly they are at the back of my wardrobe collecting dust.

My mum also had an obsession with Cowboy boots back in ’79-80.  She was travelling around the USA at that time and so many people there had Cowboy boots.  If I remember correctly, she also got some.

They were first designed for cattle drives, but were jazzed up for Hollywood Westerns.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find much information about Cowboy boots in fashion.

But I did find this:

Good luck trying to walk in these, boys!

Does anyone here still wear cowboy boots?
