Where to buy Cowboy boots?

Hi

Any good tips on where to get a pair of cowboy boots? My sister has her heart set on a pair. We are near Riverwalk, and we have a car. We'll be heading to Austin over the weekend if that would be a beter bet.

Thanks!

There are a couple of places where you can buy cowboy boots to take with you.

I believe there is 1 in the Rivercenter Mall which may be a little expansive due to it caters to tourist. www.shoprivercenter.com

There are 3 Cavender's in SA that are more reasonable here is the website to check them out plus you can put SA in locator's to find the locations or if you want I can list them for you. There is one on IH 35 which you'll go by if you are going to Austin plus 2 on the NW of SA. www.cavenders.com

There is a Sheplers that also has good choices. You can locate by locator's or ask & I can get you the address. www.sheplers.com

If you are looking for Custom Made just ask & I get you info on that as well.

Have a great visit in SA & PLEASE write a TR when you get back & let us know how it went & if you got the boots you wanted.???

Cavenders +1, numerous locations in SA and AUS..location at outlet mall (San Marcos) in b/w SA/AUS

....

Shepler's is also in Austin

...

selection at Rivercenter mall is very small and over priced

Luch. boots if you are wanting more expensive/ something more exotic

.....

in Austin, there is Allen's Boots

allensboots.com

north and a south location

......

just for grin's you should stop by Paris Hatters

downtown..at the beginning of Broadway.

I cannot thank you guys enough for your advice! I ended up searching Cavenders and found that there was one sort of on our way from SA to Austin.

We typed the address in to the GPS and we were off! Only the GPS took us to the South East 410 Loop address and not North West 410 Loop! GPS took us to a field... our fault for not double checking that it understood our directions.

Thankfully we were able to borrow some wifi in a medical parking lot and used my laptop to find directions to the North West 410 Loop. After a half hour of driving we got there.

Cavenders was great. The woman who sold us the boots, Jeri, was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Much too knowledgeable for us city girls :) Anyway we found a pair my sister liked and she bought them.

Here is a photo of her and her boots. (She did not wear her $10 Riverwalk cowboy hat into the store ;)

Thank you guys again for your suggestions. We both really appreciate it.

I'll try to write up a full trip report soon...

Glad you found what you where looking in boots but sorry to hear that you took a long drive to get there that was out of the way but I guess you got to see a different part of SA.

Will be waiting patiently for your trip report, can't wait!!!!!!

Your sister looks very happy with her boots.
