Trend: Cowboy Boots
The Wild, Wild West (but make it fashion).
If the region just shy of our ankles is anything to go by, it would seem that the wild, wild west has arrived here in 2019. That’s right. The cowboy boots trend has officially been given the greenlight by the fashion powers that be.
Traditionally favoured by 1870s cowboys and Toy Story’s annoying AF protagonist Woody (just us?), cowboy boots were the true MVP of all the major fashion weeks this year. Both on the runway and off, all your fave designers and street style stars were leaning into that big yeehaw energy.
Cowboy boots (see also: western boots and cowgirl boots) are enjoying a major redux this year. And, chances are that they’ll remain on-trend for many high noons to come. Style kweens have been repping the statement shoes on and off since the 90s.
By our calculations, that puts cowboy boots on the same level as well-structured black blazers, white t-shirts and your trusty pair of vintage-inspired jeans when it comes to sound fashion investments. They’re a hard yes for fans of a wardrobe that will withstand the test of time.
