Wearing Cowboy Boots in the City

Cowboy boots have always been in the fashion limelight, but it takes a particular kind of attitude to pull it off when you’re not on a ranch or a rodeo. John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, and James Dean all had that attitude and took cowboy boots into the mainstream.

If you want to wear your cowboy boots in the city, make sure that you only wear one Western-themed outfit in your ensemble. Mix your cowboy boots with a white shirt, a slim belt, and a jacket. This will give it a more modern look and not make you look like a Western mascot. Here are some things you should consider when buying men’s cowboy boots for sale from A.A. Callister.


Cowboy boots are known for their tapered toes. However, those with extremely thin toes are a modern design trend. They don’t have to be thin, but they should have that signature shape. They were designed that way so that the cowboy could slip his boots easily into the stirrups.

If you have a broad foot, choose a boot that narrows nearer the toes. A feature like this helps to make walking more comfortable.


A proper cowboy boot should have heels that are 1 to 1.5 inches. The heels on a cowboy boot were meant to help the rider stay on the stirrups.

For some men, they prefer boots with the full ‘Cowboy heels’, which adds height but could cause discomfort on long walks. If you intend to walk in comfort with your cowboy boots, choose those with standard ‘walking heels.’

When you find the right boots, try to put it all together in a way that doesn’t scream ‘cowboy’. A plain collared white shirt would do well, as well as casual coats. If you don’t look like an extra in an old Western movie, congratulations! You’re worthy of wearing those cowboy boots.
