Cowboy boots in Canberra?

By boo-radley - 23 June 2010 21

Howdy

I’m getting married in October, and my spouse-to-be and I are wearing cowboy boots. Only problem is, we don’t have any. Anyone got any advice on a good supplier of cowboy boots in the ACT?

Cheers

What’s Your opinion?

Is the RM Williams store still in Garema Place? Next to the Sushi Train, under the huge clock?

I misread your post at first Boo – I thought you said you were ‘only’ wearing cowboy boots on your wedding day.

RM Williams migrated to the Canberra Centre a while ago.

If you can’t find good value there duck off to Horseland or one of the other equine suppliers who should have a good range.

Depends on what you are thinking of… if you want fully sick texas style boots the internet might be your friend.

I don’t understand why you’re celebrating your future together by wearing the kind of shoes you don’t know where to find but I suppose it’s kind of appropriate that you’re stepping into your new exciting future in new exciting shoes. So congratulations and I have absolutely no idea where to find cowboy boots either, I’d probably order them online from Vegan Wares by sending in a picture of what I want and having it made to order.

While on the subject of shoes (minor hijack), can anyone point me to the direction of anywhere that sells spats in Canberra? or black/white 1950’s style mobster shoes (do they have a special name?)?

Strange request I know.. but have no idea where to start.

As for Cowboy boots, I actually bought some for a friend direct from the US over eBay, and he was extremely happy with them. Only difficulty with the ordering off the Internet is getting the sizing right (something that is especially critical with boots!).

-edit-, probably should have been closer to 1930’s in my post above 😉

Not to be (too) curmudgeonly, but what BimboGeek said about the obvious meaningfulness of this shoe style to you.

I know you said in Canberra but if you go to Chapel St in Melb you would be sure to pick some up and probably still save money even including the plane ticket!

Try Joes Boots in Kingston. They have a pretty good looking selection of the American style boot (fancy stitch work, alligator hide inlays, brocade etc.). from memory though you’d be look at $400 a pair and up.

It’s not in the ACT (technically) but Hiscock’s in Crawford St Queanbeyan has always been the epicentre of urban (and real) cowboy activity in the region. Great range of cowboy boots as well as Wrangler jeans, shirts, belts and all equestrian supplies.

A highland supply store might be the place to start.

This wouldn’t be Miranda and Orlando would it?

Awesome, thanks for the tips! A-shopping I will go.

Re: the meaningfulness of the footwear – You are curmudgeonly! How meaningful is a pair of white high heels to anyone?

The boots I wear now were bought years ago, not in Canberra, and I want some new ones.

I reckon my wedding is a good excuse to drop a bunch of cash on a good quality pair of boots that will last me 20 years, rather than wasting money on a pair of boring overpriced footwear I’ll probably only wear once :)

Pretty shoes are extremely meaningful to me. They symbolise prettiness and all things pretty.

However – thanks for explaining yourself. Please carry on.
