Fall 2012 Boot Trend: Western/Cowboy Boots

Think cowboy boots are reserved only for the true cowboys of the old Wild West? Think again!

One of the hottest women’s boot styles for fall 2012/winter 2013 is the Western boot.  Yes, Western boots were typically the footwear of choice for old-school gun- slingers, cattle wranglers and straight-up traditional cowboys. But this season, you’re going to see variations of the Western-style boot all over the fashion runways and worn by fashionistas everywhere.

There are so many ways to rock a pair of boots with a Western vibe. Here are just a few of my fave styles for fall, available now at ShoeMall!

Aztec Boots

Aztec print is everywhere this season. So colorful and unique, you’ll find chic Aztec print in different shoe styles across the board from flats, to oxfords and fabulous wedge pumps. Add a little Aztec print to a pair of Western-style boots – you get fashion gold!

Volatile Vona Boot

This boot offers you a trendy twist on the traditional Western boot. Here you get a rich suede upper mixed with a bold, Aztec-printed boot shaft. Pair it with dark skinnies and peasant top – Fab!

Sugar Women’s Tamales Boot

Sugar, spice and everything stylish! This season, shoes with studded accents are huge. I love the Tamales boot. The lower shaft and chic gold-toned studs would pair perfectly with a cute fall skirt or dress. And at $49.95, this hot boot is a steal!
