El Paso is the place in America to buy genuine hand-made cowboy boots. The choice can be bewildering – prices range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand and
the number of bootmakers can be as daunting as the number of styles, colours and leathers available.
The best advice is to start on Cotton St, where the traditional boot-makers stores congregated originally so they could share the expensive machinery. We have listed a few of our favourite El Paso boot stores below:
