Cowboy boots are a specific style of riding boot, historically worn by cowboys. They have a Cuban heel, rounded or pointed toe, high shaft, and no lacing. Cowboy boots are normally made from cowhide leather but sometimes are made from “exotic” skins such as alligator, snake, ostrich, lizard, eel, shark, buffalo, and others.

Although not for sure, it’s believe that Charles Hyer deserves the credit for inventing the cowboy boot. The company says that way back in 1875 a Colorado cowboy stopped by the Hyer shop on his way home from the Kansas City stockyards. He asked for a new pair of boots that were different from his Civil War-style boots and what he got was cowboy boots.

Something else that’s special about cowboy boots is the designs, colors, and artwork that decorate the boots. Are you ready to become a boot artist? Design one that’s perfect for you!
