A Uniquely American Origin Story
Ask people in the know where cowboy boots originated, and you'll get a few different answers. The modern boot as we know it today dates to the late 1800s. One legend says that shoemaker Charles Hyer designed the first one in 1875, a custom order for a cowboy who wanted something different than his Civil War-style military boots.
We do know that the cowboy boot exhibits style influences from vaqueros, the Mexican and Spanish horsemen and cattle herders who developed other Western traditions like roping. Their boots were made to sit properly in the stirrups while riding, as well as shield their legs from outdoor hazards like water and thick vegetation. As others joined the ranching profession, they learned from these vaqueros and adopted their ways — including the practical and wickedly cool Mexican cowboy boots that gave rise to today's styles.
