8 pairs of designer cowboy boots to wear to the Calgary Stampede (and beyond!)

Shoe 09

There is no better time to indulge in designer cowboy boots than the annual Calgary Stampede (July 8-July 17). Known mostly for being a ten-day event packed with rodeos and carnival eats, it also becoming the stomping ground for attendees to bring their western fashion A-games (not limited to the Canadian Tuxedo!).

To make yourself stand out from the hoards of people who attend the Stampede, don’t be afraid to ditch the traditional brown, mid-calf boot, and instead have fun with textures and colours. From Aquazarra and Brian Atwood, to Saint Laurent and Chloé, there is no shortage of high-fashion cowboy boots to satisfy your needs.

Take a look at the gallery below for our top picks that take cowboy boots from on the ranch to on the runway.
