Cowboy Boots Style

The first thing you should consider before buying your next pair of cowboy boots is the overall style you’re going for. Everyone is different, and their style preferences vary, and cowboy boots can come in a wide variety of styles. For example, are you looking for a dressier style or more casual? A vintage pair of cowboy boots are perfect for the more traditional cowboy, and there are more comfortable styles for those who are looking to protect their feet and provide support.

Cowboy Boots Material

Now that you have a firm grasp on the style preference of cowboy boots, you should think about the kind of material you want. Genuine cowboy boots come in many different materials and you may have a preference to the type of leather that the boots are made of. For example, authentic cowboy boots can be handcrafted from ostrich leather, alligator skin, or even hippo leather. This can also be a style preference and it’s important to understand that all genuine leather cowboy boots will be more pricey than other styles such as suede cowboy boots.

Cowboy Boots Toe Shape

The toe-shape of cowboy boots should also be a contributing factor before you make your purchase. You can find cowboy boots with a round toe shape, a square toe, a snip toe, and a pointy toe shape. The shape of your cowboy boots will be unique to your style. With Sheplers, you can find the perfect pair that you will love.

How to Decorate your Kitchen with Southern Charm

If you are about to move into a new home or you are simply renovating some rooms in your current home, you will need to think about the overall feel and theme you want when decorating. You don’t have to live in the South for southern charm and you can completely transform your home with western style and character. When it comes to your kitchen, there are many ways to incorporate a southwestern vibe and Sheplers Western Wear shares with you how to transform and decorate your kitchen with southern charm using these elements.

 

Neutral Color Pallet

The kitchen should be a comforting and warm space and luckily, this goes hand in hand with western style. We suggest that you go with neutral color tones for the cabinets in your kitchen such as whites and beiges. The walls should be neutral so that you can incorporate western elements with your kitchenware and appliances. Stray away from the more modern approach with granite counter tops and stick to either off-white or wood counters. The color pallet of the room can completely give off the overall feel and style.
