Saddle up gals, because cowboy boots are having a moment, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere soon.

 

The statement shoe of the season has made its way from the Wild West to Runway and has now embedded itself firmly into street style, with the western-inspired boots making a frequent appearance during Copenhagen’s recent fashion week.

 

With a loyal celebrity fanbase, the cowboy boot has been spotted on all our fav fashion icons, from Kendall to Emrata, as well as frequently trending on Instagram and TikTok alike.

We’re massive fans of a multifunctional wardrobe addition here at STELLAR, and a pair of decent Cowboy boots are going to do *the most* for your closet. Style them with everything from jeans to mini skirts, these flattering fashion favourites are really being worn with everything and anything. 

 

Plus, they come in an array of styles and colours, so you can keep things classic with a monochrome brown or black pair, or go bold with a multicoloured patterned set. There’s also a variety of modern takes on the classic vintage style, with knee-high, metallic, and minimalist-heeled versions all doing the rounds.

 

Although super trendy at the moment, western-style boots are a classic silhouette, so they are a good investment piece. But if you don’t feel like splurging, they’re also readily available to buy second-hand or vintage at a really reasonable price. Just check out online stores like E-Bay or Depop and your local vintage shop.

All in all, you can’t go wrong with these western staples, and in the run-up to Electric Picnic, these boots are not only fashion forward but will make a decent stab at the Stradbally terrain. (Although you might want to pack the wellies as well, just in case).
Here’s our pick of the top cowboy boots available right now, to take you from the festival field right through to the 2022 fall season.
