Lone Star State Shoes

by Anne Middleton, on October 30th, 2015

Texas was once its own independent country and its denizens have never forgotten it.  Cowboys, rodeos and grand ranches dominate our cultural imagination, due to films like Giant—and that’s all true.  What other treasures are in the Lone Star State?  Let’s trek across Texas in some shoes fit for a few tall tales. 

Flocculent UGGs are perfect for a sojourn to the Texas Hill Country, the state’s preeminent sheep ranching area.  Rolling hills and scenic vistas typify Hill Country haunts, like Blanco, nestled deep in the Heart of Texas.  Visit in late April or early May and enjoy the scenic beauty of the pastoral landscape a-flush with the states azure flower, the bluebonnet.  Don the Ansley Chucky Crystals slipper in blue for your Texas adventure.  You’ll get free shipping and free returns using our codes. 

No Texas trek is complete without a little hanky-panky with a rough-and-tumble cowhand.  Ladies, put San Antonio on your itinerary.  The gateway to South Texas, San Antonio has plenty of vaqueros to go around.  Also, you can admire the World’s Largest Cowboy Boots, situated North Star Mall.  Shop like a rodeo queen wearing the Vine Cowboy Boot by Boston Proper.  You’ll get 10% off when you sign up for emails from Boston Proper—no bull!

Want a peek into avant-garde Texas?  Austin is the hub for you. Austin is home to vibrant tech and filmmaking community, close to one of the nation’s preeminent universities, UT-Austin.  Come for SXSW and stay for the dazzling music scene.  Have an experience as unique as you are in your customized Chuck Taylor All Stars from Converse.  With our codes, you’ll enjoy free shipping and free returns.

God Bless Texas!  Texans have a special moxie that’s sure to rub off on you if you visit.  If you’re bound to the Lone Star State, get into a Texan frame of mind with some new shoes.  Whether you’re doing the boot scoot boogie or co-working on your new startup, we’ve got great shoe vendors and great codes for your Texas trek.
