Not long ago, I was window shopping and spied these chocolate brown boots with turquoise trim. Living in Texas, we actually have an occasion now and then to dress like a cowgirl. The rodeo is a huge event every year here in February, drawing big name stars and the best cowboys in the country.
I went in for a look and found a large selection of boots, hats and satchels, perfect for our annual rodeo event here in Houston. But, here's the kicker--this shop is not Texas grown, but Chelsea grown right around the corner from my home in London.
I've passed by this shop, R. Soles, a hundred times and often wondered just who in the world is buying cowboy boots in London. Inquiring minds want to know, so I went inside and asked with my Texas accent, "You sell many of these here?"
A little cheekily, he answered, "I guess so, madam, since we've been selling boots here for 35 years." Wow, I was impressed. It seems that Judy Rothchild designs all their boots, and that her boots have been seen on the catwalks of Paris, London and New York.
A multitude of styles and skins, from the simple to the most exotic for both men and women. If you can't make it to the shop, you can always order on their website here. Perhaps you'd like some alligator or maybe some armadillo boots. Whatever your style, just hitch your horse on up to the post and mosey on in for some real style. Just keep your eyes open for those British wannabe cowboys and cowgirls.
