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:
Does anyone here still wear cowboy boots?
