While there are thousands of different pairs of shoes to choose from, in the state of Texas just about everyone owns a pair of cowboy boots. It’s not just about being in a rodeo or working on a farm. Every little boy and girl that spends time in Texas grows up wanting their own pair of boots and even then there is a huge variety of cowboy or cowgirl boots to choose from. 

Work boots have been around since the 11th century but when you’re talking specifically about boots while riding horses that became more popular in the early 16th century. The boots were created first in Spain then brought to Mexico. In the early 1800’s cowboy boots became popular in the United States. As you would expect once they arrived in the US the options for boots multiplied quickly.
