With the one-month countdown the Calgary Stampede starting this week, it’s time to start thinking of what to wear to the event now affectionately known by those who know as “the greatest outdoor show on earth.” We’re thinking denim, plaid and, of course, the symbolic white hat. But nothing says Canadian western heritage like a pair of good old leather boots.

In celebration of the 2013 Calgary Stampede, the annual summer event has launched its own private line of cowboy (and cowgirl!) boots. As a way to represent the strong western pride through merchandise, these authentic leather boots are made by Canada West Boots, a Calgary Stampede partner, with each pair being one hundred per cent Canadian made. Each pair features unique detailing, from intricate stitching to handpicked leather finishes.
