Living the American Boot Dream

9 months ago Why This Look0

Wearing shoes on the farm, at festive events and out with family and friends has to feel like house shoes on Cowgirl Candace’s feet. Real talk: My days of tolerating foot pain to look pretty are long gone.

While Durango’s Dream Catcher Americana Wrapped Fringe Western Boots appear as though they’re only suited for show time, the full-grain leather distressed classics are actually comfortable — and for hours at that.

During my April shoot at Roosevelt Riding Stables, I hoisted myself on horses Rain and Dewy, climbed up and down wooden fences and hiked to various stable sites with the metal star-studded Americana’s on. It was like wearing my everyday farmhouse flip-flops to do laundry (really that pleasant to my piggies).

Notable features that helped establish my ease of constant movement on set in the 2-inch heeled boots:

  • leather lining;
  • cushion flex insole;
  • roomy square toes;
  • a double row welt stitch for durability; and
  • tempered steel shank for arch support and stability; and most importantly,
  • #ItsAnAttitude.
