Tecovas Western Boots: Stylish, Handmade, and Affordable to Boot

tecovas western boots stylish handmade and affordable to boot zoom
There comes a time in every man’s life when he asks himself, “Can I pull off cowboy boots?” Most red-white-and-blue-blooded American men have a soft spot for the badassery of Westerns, and many of us imagine ourselves gettin’ by in the violent and dusty Wild West. At the very least, we like to think we can rock a pair of leather western boots.

If you’re curious about how well you fill a pair of cowboy boots, then allow us to recommend a classic western pair from Tecovas. Unlike many handmade luxury boots, which can run up to $700 or more, Tecovas boots will only set you back $235 or $225. Much of the savings comes from Tecovas’ direct-to-customer online sales model. In addition to saving you money, this model can help you avoid a duel with a snooty department store sales representative.

Tecovas is offering two men’s boots and two women’s boots. You can choose from the taller, more traditional Cartwright, or the shorter, more versatile Earl. All boots are designed in Austin, TX and handmade in Leon, Mexico. The boot-making process involves more than 120 steps performed by skilled artisans in one of the oldest boot-making factories in the world.

If you’re unsure of how you could possibly pull off cowboy boots, then allow us to help you out. Don’t overthink it — Lord knows the cowboys of the Wild West didn’t give a damn. And don’t worry: you don’t also need to invest in chaps and a ten-gallon hat; just because you have a pair of cowboy boots doesn’t mean you have to go full cowboy. Most of the time, your boots will be a perfectly natural part of your ensemble. When in doubt, go with a button-up shirt, casual jacket, and pair of jeans — just make sure you don’t tuck the legs into the boot shaft, lest you look like a total goofball.

If you simply don’t see yourself in a pair of classic Western boots, then you might consider getting a pair for the lady in your life. The Jamie and The Penny are similar to their male counterparts, and make excellent holiday gifts.
