Tuesday Shoesday: Vintage Cowboy Boots

Well, they might not be vintage but they are beat up/old.  

There is a girls trip to Nashville on the horizon, and I really wanted a pair of cowboy boots to take with me.  I also considered buying them there, but when my mom & sister were in town over the weekend, we decided to head out and see what we could find.  I've always wanted to go to Alcala's, which is a pretty famous Western Wear store.  Think country singers & $3,000+ pairs of boots.  However, we passed Ragstock on the way, went in & hit the cowboy boot jackpot.

I wish I was cool enough to pull off vintage pieces, but the reality is I can't & I have always been slightly creeped out by secondhand clothing/shoes.  So when I found these Justin boots, I surprised myself when I realized that I had to have them.  I may or may not have rubbed hand sanitizer on my feet after trying them on (what? It was a sandal kind of day & there was NO WAY I was going to put on a dirty sock!).   

I like that they are already worn-in. The leather just looks fantastic. 

We then hit up Alcala's & tried on boot after boot...

...after boot.

There were some serious boots here.  We also found the same brand of boots that we scored at Ragstock (Justin & Durango for my sister) for sometimes hundreds of dollars more!   

We were there for over an hour & it was a lot of fun.  However, I am so glad that I ended up with the boots that I have now.  I can see myself wearing the heck out of them all fall and winter - I love them that much!
