Western Boots For Your Lil' Cowpoke

The West, the last leg of the American Frontier, home to more rattlers and rough terrain than any traveling Americans had ever seen. The women, newly migrated to the West, wore stiff, short leather boots to protect their delicate feet from rocks and the like. As the wranglers began to kick up dust in the Wild West, they found they should have taken after their womenfolk — they needed better protective shoes. A local Vaquero introduced them to the perfect shoe to meet their needs — the western or cowboy boot was great for wrangling horses, working on the ranch, mustang running, and chasing off bandits. As time turned, those boots were crafted for the womenfolk and eventually the children. Now that don’t mean only full grown cowboys and cowgals can wear ‘em! Your little folk can cowboy boots, too!

Your little cowpoke need western boots to keep their feet snug and safe. They may not have jobs on the ranch, but they are definitely active and constantly on the go. Western boot uppers are always tough and protective, like the husk of the cactus, whether they’re sporting genuine leather or synthetic.  Ain’t no secret that your little ones get excited at the sight of wildlife, especially at the mighty equidae--horses I believe ya’ll call ‘em! They’ll love to pull on their finest kids’ Western boots and mount their favorite pony or horse at the county fair.

Not only are kids’ cowboy boots suitable for everyday wear and tear, they have quite the stylish flair.  Through a variety of patterned uppers, your little tyke can create their own western-inspired look and feel like one of the big bugs. Patterns include everything from the proud American flag, to the gentle flutter of a butterfly, to the untamed ferocity of the eagle, or covert camo print. They’re sure to light up in luminous light-up kids’ western boots! Heels and shafts come aglow with each and every step, giving their western boots a little more to say and everyone can hear it.

There’s enough adornment in their lil’ boots to make Calamity Jane and Doc Holliday proud! If flash and pizazz just ain’t their preference, let them drool over the ostrich toe caps, intricate stitching patterns, and charming colors. The cutout pattern gives dual layers of attractive adornment. Even the toughest cowboys won’t be able to resist the on-trend cutout patterns of the modern western boot.

Now, you may be under the misperception that western boots are stiff and uncomfortable, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Whoever told you that can shut their big bazoo!  Western brands keep your kids’ feet in mind. Ariat® Kids, Dan Post® Kids, Durango® Kids, Frye® Kids, Laredo® Kids, Old West® Kids, and Roper® Kids boots construct their interiors with the same care they construct their uppers. No matter what western brand you choose for your young’un, you can be sure that the interior will cradle their fun-loving feet. The most common of underfoot cushioning is EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) coupled with a TPR outsole for great traction—perfect for the Wild West…or the wild playground!

Ariat  Kids brings the Booster Bed and Four Layer Rebound (4LR™) to the feet of your ever growing young-uns. Every pair includes the Booster Bed which is built underneath the original insole. As your little one’s feet begin to grow, like they are bound to do, pull out both the insole and Booster Bed. Toss the Booster Bed like a bad habit and re-insert the insole. Like magic, you’ve added another half to full size of growing room!

The Ariat Kids Four Layer Rebound is sure to keep those growing feet comfortable no matter what their shoe size. Four layers of comfortable synthetic material are united to construct optimal and superior comfort in one single footbed. Not only is this footbed lightweight and comfy, it is compatible with various kinds of outsoles, meaning you are sure to find it in almost every pair of Ariat boots. 

Dan Post Kids isn’t leaving their comfort to the wolves either. Several of their styles come equipped with the Ultimate Gel-Flex insole. Doesn’t that name just give you full-chisel excitement? The insole is crafted from supportive and flexible gel, giving your little one the full footbed comfort they deserve. Whether they’re out and about, playing to their hearts content or ready to tame a stallion, their feet will stay snug as a bug.

Not to be left in the dust are Durango Kids boots with their signature Cushion Flex insole. As your little cowpoke step into their new pair of Durango kids’ boots, their feet will come in contact with a plush footbed. They’ll be wide-eyed as foal once they realize it’s contoured to keep their foot cradled, ventilated to cool them down, and removable (in some styles) for adjustable comfort!

Whether it's something simple like saddling up that horse, minding that good ol' western heist, cooking that cacti and beef ribs, or chasing that cattle around, our great selection of kids’ cowboy boots will keep them protected for those long trails ahead!
