Fossil + Justin Cowboy Boot

It doesn't pain me the way a bell-bottom revival does, but I admit to a little eye-rolling upon spotting the Western way wielding its influence on boots for fall. Until I saw these:These just evoke all my deeply rooted, never-to-be-forgotten, teenage desire for the perfect cowboy boot. I must own these, and you must see these in person (Jacinto boot, $195). Justin Boots has teamed up with Fossil for a line of the real Western thing for fall, and the results are tempting. Mighty tempting. OK, I'll stop. Just go try them on in July when they're in the Fossil store on 34th Street. And be happy knowing these boots are handcrafted in the USA.

These embroidered, mid-shaft boots ($75 $175! My typo-bad tease, sorry!) are pretty darn adorable.More Fossil later, as Craig and I visited the Fall Preview yesterday and saw lots of great vintage-inspired watches and plenty of cute bags. OK, I'm going to go scramble up some loot so I can buy me some new cowboy boots. OMG make me stop.


Fossil, 38 W. 34th Street between 5th & 6th

My first pair of cowboy boots ever were Justin! Then, years ago I went to the boot place on 8th St. You know, the one with SERIOUS western boots! I bought a pair for some outrageous amount of $$, but 10+ yrs. later I still break them out of the closet every once in a while, and they look almost new!

I'm a sucker for all things cowgirl. BOTH pairs are glorious!

Confession: I've been wanting a pair of shiny gold cowboy boots.

Stacy - I've been in that store and have always wanted to get a pair there!
Sal - thing is, I roll my eyes because I'm feeling so tired to see the same old things come in and out of style, but IMO everyone should have a pair of cowboy boots and NEVER throw them out! I stopped a gfriend from tossing hers a year ago, I'm going to call her and gloat now.
WendyB - I've always wanted red, Footloose cowboy boots. Not quite as confession-worthy as shiny gold, however!
