While not designed for walking long distances, historically the cowboy boot was designed to be all-purpose piece of equipment for riding through scrub, protecting the wearer from thorns, snakebite, mud and from being ‘hung up’ in the stirrups after being thrown from the saddle.
Today, boots are as much a fashion statement as they are a tool of the trade.
