Justin Boot Company has been crafting boots in the U.S. since 1879, so they know a thing or two about boots!

Sweet and feminine calls for Justin Gypsy cowgirl boots with a chunky toe and short boot shaft, or any Justin cowgirl boot in pink!
Look for Justin cowgirl boots that match your attitude, and you will easily be able to build outfits around them – with items already in your closet!
The long-debated question: Should I tuck my jeans into my boots, or wear my jeans covering my boots? Hmm, good question. Traditional cowboy folk will tell you that real cowboys don’t tuck in their jeans. But cowgirl fashionistas around the world will tell you to tuck in those jeans and show off your boots!!
Jeans? Dresses? Skirts? Shorts? Leggings? Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! If you’re riding, you obviously should stick with jeans to protect your legs, but if you’re wearing cowgirl boots hoping to show off your western side, try them all!
Jean shorts are adorable paired with Justin Gypsy cowgirl boots. Justin Bent Rail cowgirl boots add a boost of romance when worn with a summer dress. Just about any pair of Justin cowgirl boots will work with a denim skirt. And leggings, oh how we love leggings and boots! Try leggings with a long sweater, or leggings with a dress, or leggings with a skirt to pull off the leggings + boots look.
When wearing dresses and skirts with cowgirl boots, if you have short legs, wear a boot that has a shaft height of 10” or less, such as Justin ankle cowgirl boots. Shorter boots will elongate your legs since you will see more leg between the top of the boot and your hemline.
For the very best fit, always wear boot socks with your cowgirl boots. If you don’t have boot socks, you can substitute athletic socks. They won’t give you exactly the same comfort and moisture control, but they help.
When wearing leggings or tights with boots, your feet might feel like they are slipping around in the boots since you aren’t wearing regular socks. Fix this by slipping on a pair of ankle socks over your leggings. The socks won’t be visible, but they will make your feet much more comfortable.
Most importantly, make sure you are wearing the right size boot! Click here to read more about how to find your perfect fit.
