Cowboy boots are a specific style of riding boot traditionally worn by cowboys. For many centuries riding boots have been a part of the equestrian way of life. When the industrial age came about, boots were individually handmade. These boots were made in many different cultures- depending on which culture you were a part of depended on which type of boot was offered.

In the 16th century Spain influenced the Americas with their vaquero tradition. The Americas imported these boots.

The mass produced Wellington Boot became popular with cowboys back in 1862. The years 1866 through 1864 brings us to the cattle drive era. Cowboys chose to wear their regular working boots/cowboy boots during work and donned decorative dress boots when in town.

In 1850 to 1860 popular fashion magazines advertised cowboy boots with topstitching, cutouts of geometric or other natural elements and an underslung heel. This was an American style of cowboy boot. You can find out more information regarding the history of cowboy boots via Wiki.
