Tips for Buying Cowboy Boots
Expensive cowboy boots costing hundreds of dollars aren’t overpriced — they’re made with superb craftsmanship and high-quality materials. And they’re meant to last practically a lifetime of hard wear.
If you’re simply looking for a cowboy or western aesthetic, the boots above will get you that for a lot less. However, to avoid winding up with a cheap pair that either falls apart or is uncomfortable and scuffs easily, besides keeping the price in mind, consider the following when shopping for inexpensive cowboy boots.
1. Comfort: Mostly, cowboy boots are intended for what cowboys did: Ride ‘em, cowboy! Or cowgirl. Essentially, they’re meant to be worn on horseback. But, in reality, are we really going to do that daily? That’s why you should make sure the boot provides comfort. Is there arch support? Does the sole look comfortable to walk on?
2. Ease: Cowboy boots will function as one piece. Sure, occasionally in fashion-forward cowboy boots, there’s a zipper, but overall there aren’t straps, there aren’t laces to tie just pullup loops on the tops of the outside.
3. Quality: When it’s a leather boot, good-quality genuine leather will smell like leather. As for poor-quality leather? Well, it smells like chemicals and/or plastic. Steer clear.
4. Sizing and fit: Typically, sizing differs from that of regular boots. The general rule of thumb says you should buy one size larger to give yourself room. That said, this isn’t always true for every pair of cheap cowboy boots. Essentially, your new pair of boots should fit you like a glove.
