Throughout my high school years, my daily uniform was a pair of boots, jeans and a western shirt. But once I entered the workforce, the boots gave way to more office apparel. Boots are great, but not if you're running around an office all day. And in the Texas heat, a regular pair of shoes are just cooler and more comfortable.
For those special dress occasions, or if you're going two-stepping, then a fancy pair of boots are just the thing. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and all types of leathers and skins.
