It could be called the ?cowgirl?s cry,? those sobs heard round yonder whenever a lady dons cowboy boots.
Pinched toes? Check. Tired feet? You?ve got ?em.
In fact, if they weren?t so darn appropriate (see Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo), we?d chuck them at the door.
Thanks to Pecos Belle, there?s no need to give up wearing boots: The two-year-old Fort Worth company is gaining traction among discerning gals for its extremely comfortable cowboy boots that have a fashion-forward aesthetic.
Owner Matt Milliorn works with the company?s boot-maker in Leon, Mexico, to design the footwear, which has an unusual amount of arch support as well as ?double extra-wide? padding, he says.
Each of the 23 styles will make you stand about an inch and a half taller, but style-wise you?ll be heads above the crowd in feminine colors like the rose-hued Valencia ($350) and purple-toned Costilla ($400).
And, in a bow to the traditional brown palette, the embroidered Alamosa ($380) just might be calling your name, like they are ours.
The boots are available on the company?s website and in a handful of boutiques in the Tarrant County area. Milliorn aims to break into the Dallas-proper market this year.
All the better, y?hear?
