We all want to play cowgirl or cowboy and you can’t be one without the most important piece, the boots! Travel down south past the Mason-Dixon Line and you’ll find plenty of places to buy boots, but it’s a lot harder to find them in New England.

And it’s difficult to buy boots online. They’re never the right size or fit, and you feel guilty returning something to clunky. The best thing to do when buying boots is to go to an actual boot store so you can try on the shoe, feel the fit, smell the leather, and look in the mirror before you take your wallet out.

Nancy Sinatra said it best when she said, “These boots were made for walkin’ and that’s just what they’ll do.” Buying boots is a commitment. It’s a boot that will hopefully last you a lifetime. And if you ever destroy the bottoms, don’t throw them away! Bring them to a shoe cobbler so they can replace the bottom of them. I’ve never thrown out any of my expensive cowboy boots and I never will! Shoot, if I ever have a daughter I might give them to her!

So don’t go to Nashville to buy your next pair. Here are some places where you can find cowboy boots right here, locally!!
