Mainly because they transition from season to season with ease, thus becoming a wardrobe staple. I've already seen cowboy kickers in several spring 2010 collections, including Isabel Marant, Stuart Weitzman and American Eagle. Personally, I like the styles that look rugged and distressed, or super snazzy -- like these snake-embossed bootsies by Miz Mooz.
It's worth checking out the rest of the Miz Mooz collection at Infinity Shoes. They have all the latest trends in footwear, and they're affordable. YEEHAW!!!
