Shorty boots for summer

Theresa McCaffrey


Whether you're a downtown lady or someone who's better suited to a life on the ranch, no cowgirl can resist a quality pair of boots.

Summer might mean cracking out the denim shorts and skirts, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn't still protect your feet.

Shorty cowgirl boots are ideal for this season, covering your feet and reaching towards the middle of your calves.

This means you can still make a statement and get your legs out this summer, without compromising on safety.

The stylish Ariat Paloma boots offer a Spanish-influenced design worthy of taking centre stage. Expertly created by skilled craftsmen they feature artistic scrolled cut-outs and studs, as well as an exaggerated toe spring and hand-nailed veg tan leather outsole and heel.

Whatever the weather, comfort is key and the ATS™ footbed technology, cradles the foot, offering long-lasting stability and support - allowing you to ride, work and play with ease.

They're the hardworking cowgirl's boot which like to make an entrance, whether you're planning a night out on the town or just want something stylish to wear around the ranch.

Complement their creativity with an expressive pink check shirt and denim shorts. As the sun sets on your ranch mix things up a little by switching to a denim skirt and a purple shirt - along with a sparkling silver horseshoe pendant.

Experiment with different intricate designs this summer to help show off a little personality and stand out from the other riders. A unique and artistic pair of cowgirl boots could soon become your signature look - bringing you plenty of admirers and helping you get noticed at competitions.

Jeans are a staple for cowgirls, but with gorgeous shorty boots don’t be afraid to swap them for skirts and hotpants. When you've got it you should flaunt it after all!

If rocking Daisy Duke's isn't quite your thing then you could try a ra-ra skirt or summer dress instead.

Accessorise with a western hat to match your colour scheme and a belt to define your waist while tying the whole look together.
