12 Pairs of Cowboy-ified Chelsea Boots to Yeehaw in Right Now

Rugged and glamorous all at the same time, cowboy boots are easily the coolest shoes humans have ever invented. But recognizing that indisputable fact and having the guts to actually wear them are two different things. Chelsea boots, their tamer cousin, have historically been the easier way to achieve a similar kind of swagger. The toe isn’t as pointy, the heel is a little less pronounced, and they’re usually free of decoration. Unless you live in Texas, this tamer option usually feels more natural. Until 2019 at least, when designers started sprinkling a little Chelsea boot magic onto cowboy boots and thus came up with a new breed of boot that is John Wayne-level badass and Harry Styles-level wearable, all at the same time. Now, you can be someone who appreciates cowboy boots—and also wears them day in and day out. And you don’t even need to be at SXSW. Here, 12 such pairs.
