Permission To Earnestly Wear Cowboy Boots Officially Granted

The last time I rode horses I was shopping in the children's section of the shoe store. But that didn't stop me from stealing my mom's vintage cowboy boots when I was home for the holidays. Because yes, there are certainly functional elements to cowboy boots for those that rodeo, live on farms, or, you know, ride horses on the regular. But, for those of us in New York City — and other non-rural locales — they're still a must-have during thick-sock season. Or, at least, they're starting to be.
Margiela, Calvin Klein, R13; there are very few runways that haven't debuted cowboy boots within the last year. We've rounded up 16 pairs of cowboy boots to shop for now. And there are a bunch of iterations to choose from — from tall cherry red, to ankle-high all-white, to glossy croc prints in cropped silhouettes. Feel free to do your best Jessica Simpson impression when they arrive in the mail — just remember to make it fashun.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
