The Cowboy Boot Legacy

Following our recent announcement about our new line of cowboy boots*, we found ourselves wrapped up in the history behind these iconic Western staples!

*If you haven’t heard, 426 West is bringing you a BRAND NEW line of cowboy boots. They will soon be available for you to purchase. Whatever your shoe size, foot shape or style preference, there will be a boot for you! Keep your eyes peeled for new products landing in our shop.

As we prepare to introduce our latest collection, it's the perfect time to explore the origins, evolution, and everchanging journey of cowboy boots.

Dating back to the 19th century, cowboy boots were an indispensable footwear for cowboys navigating rugged terrain. Originally created for practicality, these boots were meticulously designed to provide protection, support, and comfort during long days on horseback.

However, cowboy boots quickly outshone their functional roots to become symbols of Western culture and style. From the dusty trails of the Old West to the glitzy stages of modern country music concerts, cowboy boots have remained firm companions on the journey through American history.

426 West is thrilled to announce the arrival of our new line of cowboy boots (coming soon!). Our collection has been curated to honour the heritage of this much-loved footwear.

Stay tuned for updates as we prepare to launch our latest collection of cowboy boots, and be sure to keep an eye on our shop for the exciting new additions coming your way.

Happy trails,

426 West Team
