When is the Best Time to Buy Boots?

Posted 4 years ago by

Right now! If you went out to buy boots this time of year you will find them all on sale. Most people buy boots September thru February. That is when the weather allows them the most, but at full price. As the weather gets warmer and warmer the more people shift their purchases to bathing suits, shorts, sandals, and tanks. You’ll be able to buy good quality boots originally $40-$200 at 50% to 75% off. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to wear them for about 3 to 6 months, but the deal you’ll get will make it worth it. Try Aldo, Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Baker’s for the best sales. The same goes for coats!


$10 Cowboy Boots

Posted 4 years ago by

I got these leather cowboy boots for only $10 at a thrift store in Richmond Virginia!


$40 Durango Boots

Posted 4 years ago by

These boots were originally around $130, but I got them on sale for only $40 at a western store in Massachusetts (Double J Western Store) about 5 years ago. I wear these boots more than any other pair of shoes I own. If you want a pair of real cowboy boots, I recommend you go to your local equestrian/western store and look in the sale section. Nothing beats real leather.

Bag: $24 H&M


No Relation Vintage

No Relation is an AMAZING vintage store I found while walking around the East Village in New York City last week. It was cowboy boot heaven for me. Most of them were only $25. I also found an array of leather  jackets, button up shirts, flannels, bags, and skirts. Very affordable. Check it out if you’re in the area!
