Whether you’re riding a horse or going on a date, the right pair of shoes can make or break your look. All over large department stores, faux riding boots are sold by the hundreds. Some of these knee-high leather boots even feature fake “spurs” in the form of a metal band around the ankle.
But what happens when a real horseback rider heads to brunch? Western riders can bring true Western fashion to any restaurant with these barn-inspired looks.
Women’s Western Fashion:
As any woman who rides horses knows, you need shoes that offer all-day comfort and look great doing it. The TuffRider Women’s Lace-Up Graphix and Slip-On Graphix shoes combine cute and comfortable. The memory foam insole and EVA rubber sole keep feet happy, while desert-inspired geographic patterns will add a healthy dose of Western fashion to any outfit. If you have to rush right from the barn to brunch with the girls, these fashionable Western shoes are easy to throw in the car and slip on in the barn parking lot for a seamless transition from working on the ranch to a relaxing brunch.
Step your brunch outfit up a notch with the Western style Mandala Shabby Chic Boots from Ferrini. With a white leather outsole and full grain white leather vamp, these cowgirl boots are as luxurious as they are stylish. Beautiful mandala patterns in shades of soft brown and cream wind their way down the vamp of the boot to finish at a sturdy 2-inch heel. Tuck your jeans in to show off the pattern or wear a looser-cut pant style over the vamp for a dialed-down look. No matter how you style these Western-fashion boots, they’re sure to come up in conversation at your next brunch date.
Consider pairing your Western-style footwear with a casual, but classy, outfit. The Tin Haul Barbed Wire Embroidered Jeans add a little extra emphasis to your Western vibe. Round out the outfit with a simple traditional top, like the Equine Couture Morgan V-Neck Sweater.
Men’s Western Style:
You can take the cowboy out of the barn, but you can’t take the barn out of the cowboy. For the guy who’s only comfortable in Western boots and scoffs at the idea of boat shoes, try something a little fancier than your barn boots, like the Roper Men’s 2-Eyelet Ankle Boot.
These short boots feature a molded midsole and EVA insole for comfort, while the Western-style brown faux ostrich design will make you feel right at home. And– for the cowboy who never knows when he’ll have to hop on a horse– the rubber outsole is stirrup-friendly.
If you really can’t ditch your Western boots for a trip into town, check out the Ferrini Men’s French Black Square Toe Boot. This Western style outdoor performance boot is made of durable leather and has a rubber sole that’s designed for ease in the stirrup, comfort on the tractor, or brunch in town. The beautiful oil-black leather is decorated with a simple design on the shaft and features traditional Western fashion stitching at the toe.
The Dan Post Men’s Alamosa Boot is another excellent option for the cowboy who wants to incorporate some Western style into his outfit. With a genuine full-quill ostrich-skin foot and Western-inspired geographic pattern on the shaft, this boot is a little flashier than the other options on this blog. Wear a boot that marries Western fashion and comfort. The Alamosa Boot has a Soft Strike Removable Orthotic and is fully leather-lined to provide you with the same comfort in town that you’re used to on the ranch.
Pair any of these three options with the TuffRider Men’s Voltage Flannel Shirt and a pair of tough Rock & Roll Denim Men’s Dark Wash Jeans for an outfit that will bring some Western style to your brunch date.
Children’s Western Fashion:
We can’t forget about the kids! Many horse-crazy kids would rather spend their hours on the ranch than at a restaurant. Get them out the door in a nice, clean outfit a little bit easier with an awesome pair of Western style boots they’ll actually be excited to wear.
For all the growing young cowgirls, there’s TuffRider’s Floral Cowgirl Western Boots. Western fashion meets Barbie Doll pink with these boots. The fun bright color and floral design are perfect for young riders who want to stand out from the crowd.
With a short heel and rubber sole, pretty soon she’ll be begging to wear these flashy boots to the barn, as well as to your next date out on the town.
Check out TuffRider’s American Cowboy Western Boot for your growing bull rider. These patriotic Western-style boots have red, white, and blue stars-and-stripes on the shaft. The short, sturdy heel and durable rubber sole means that these boots are ready for whatever your child gets into.
With details like red, white, and blue stitching and a broad square toe, they’re fashionable enough for a restaurant and tough enough for life on the ranch.
Every child deserves to have some fun with their Western style outfit! Pair your cowboy or cowgirl’s Western boots with the Lettia Thelwell Youth Tee for a comfortable and casual outfit that’s stylish enough to transition easily from barn to restaurant. Let your child choose from three fun graphics featuring the beloved Thelwell ponies, who are up to their usual shenanigans.
Or, take your child’s Western fashion outfit a little further with the Stetson Children’s Long Sleeve Woven Shirt. Arrow-embroidered pockets and white pearl logo snaps make this shirt at home both at the rodeo or in town. Pair it with a good-looking pair of TuffRider Youth Western boots, and your little one will be ready for the barn or a date out with the family!
