Western boots, often referred to as western boots or cowboy boots, are particularly extravagant leather boots and usually with ornaments, which are mainly worn by motorcyclists or men and women who love the Wild West.
Classification of the Western boots category
Western boots are popularly known as cowboy boots and are a special form of boot. They became popular in the early 1960s when more and more American westerns were shown in German cinemas. Just like jeans, the western boot is part of the cowboys’ daily workwear, but has been increasingly worn in private settings due to the popularity of films.
