The Fashionable Cowboy Boots For Adventure

Boots have been around for a long time. They were mainly meant for adventurous work like hunting, exploring or for those jobs that demanded tough conditions like working outdoors. Now they are also part of high fashion and are much coveted fashion items.

There are many different boots to choose from and it varies from the material used to the color, the shape, the height (length), the cut, etc. When it comes to the material used, it can either be artificial or natural, usually leather. They also come in all price ranges and hence the quality also varies greatly.

When it comes to boots for women, there are many different choices that are there for both a casual look and a more dressed up look. The usual choices are between Doc Martens, hiking, motorcycle boots and western (cowboy).

Cowboy boots were originally meant for cowboys so that they could ride and work easily while keeping their feet safe. Later on these boots evolved into a fashion statement. Wellington boots, European cavalier boots, etc influenced them. So now they have a higher heel and they are also made from better quality leather.

Boots are the essential part of many famous and popular looks. One such look is the biker look. Other than the long hair and the motorcycles, a biker cannot be seen without a pair of striking, heavy-duty black biker boots.

These boots are meant to protect their feet from the harshness of the road when they are riding. A true biker will never leave his boots behind or ride his bike without his boots. But these days the urban biking population is seen biking while wearing almost anything, from tennis shoes to formal leather shoes worn by office goers. So does that mean boots are only for looks?

The answer is a simple no. While most bikers do like their boots and how they look, the main reason why they wear boots is protection. Without boots, their feet are likely to get burned or damaged during the hazardous conditions that can be crated during long bike rides. These include over heated exhaust pipes, accidents, scraping against something while moving, etc.

This is actually similar to why cowboys preferred the heavy-duty cowboy boots for going to work. In the rough outdoors, in open fields, you need heavy-duty protection to endure through a hard day’s work.

Of course, the protective quality of the boot is determined by many factors. The main factors are how well the boots fit you, how high quality is the material they are made from and whether they are worn properly. For complete safety, especially on bikes you need to wear other things like thick leather pants and jackets that keep the rest of your body protected.

Lastly, when you are buying boots, make sure you get your feet properly measured and go at a time that is sometime in the middle of a normal day. That is because your feet tend to expand a bit when you walk and go about your daily work. They are usually their largest at the end of a typical day.
