Discover How to Wear Cowboy Boots from the Leading Western Wear Provider

Few things have stood the test of time quite like cowboy boots. From the traditional to the trendy, this classic footwear has endured again and again. From how to wear cowboy boots to how to maintain them, the NRS experts certainly know a thing or two.

When it comes to picking out your cowboy boots, our staff recommends considering the shoes’ instep. A boot’s instep covers the top of your foot and helps determine how well the shoe fits. Depending on the size of your feet, you may need a wider or narrower width for your instep. You also want to think about the ball of your foot. The ball should fit securely within the widest part of the boot. We’ve got even more tips and expert insight on how to wear cowboy boots in the FAQ section below.

1. How should cowboy boots fit?

Since cowboy boots aren’t like ordinary shoes, they should fit differently than the average sneaker or sandal. You’ll probably want a size that is slightly smaller than your average shoe size because Western boots tend to run large. These shoes are designed to feel snug but comfortable.

2. Do you have any tips on how to wear cowgirl boots?

There are endless ways for women to wear cowgirl boots. This iconic footwear pairs well with just about anything, so you have a lot of freedom to incorporate your own sense of style when you wear them.

Cowboy boots are unique in that they can be both work boots and formal footwear. Wear them with jeans in the barn or with a skirt in the office. Try pairing them with skinny jeans and trendy tops for a modern casual look. Another great option is to wear them with a simple summer dress. Top it off with one of our Western fashion hats.

What to wear with cowgirl boots ultimately depends on your own personal preference and the type of event taking place. NRS’s selection contains many different styles to help you look your best for any occasion.

3. How to Break in Cowboy Boots

If you’ve ever bought a new pair of cowboy boots, then you know how tough it can be to wear them for the first time. That’s why it’s so important to break them in and make them as comfortable as possible. Here are a few ways to break in your new Western boots:

  1. Wear your boots as much as you can when you get them. Whether they’re cowboy work boots, roper boots, or steel toe cowboy boots, the more you wear them, the more comfortable they will be.
  2. Use a frozen bag of water. Inserting a bag of water into the toe of your boots, then placing them in the freezer for a couple of hours will allow the ice to expand and stretch out your boots.
  3. Wear 2 pairs of socks. Doubling up on socks will protect your feet from blisters while you break in your boots.
