Are cowboy boots having a moment? You could say that, although it’s pretty unique that a style that’s been around since the Old West is just now galloping back into the collective style conscious. Whether it’s the Western wear of Post Malone or a desire for rugged, throwback styles to team with on-trend workwear, yes indeed, cowboy boots are in fact having a moment.
It makes perfect sense, because if you want an eye-catching way to switch up your rotation of fall boots, there’s hardly a better way to go than cowboy boots. With a style that’s rugged and yet sharp at the same time, the right pair of cowboy boots can give any look a leg up on the competition. Sleeker than rugged lace-up work boots, more visually striking than Chelsea boots …. consider them a worthwhile option all around. If that sounds like the type of fall style inspiration you need now, give one of our picks for the coolest cowboy boots a fair shake right now.
