Do Cowboy Boots Have Zippers?

Do Cowboy Boots Have Zippers?

Cowboy boots have many improvements with time, not only in the variety of types of exotic leather but also in the boot construction.

Cowboy boots stand out thanks to their height, 11 inches, it seems like there are not many other types of boots like them. Along with the unique textures on the shaft, cowboy boots have been a fashion icon for centuries.

However, the shaft height of cowboy boots is also a weakness, they are hard to put on / take off.

Many will immediately think of a convenient zipper.

Do cowboy boots have zippers? Well, today’s post is the most detailed answer for you!

Are there any cowboy boots with zippers?

The evolution of cowboy boots in construction is very varied, and fortunately, some cowboy boots have started to have side zippers.

However, the number of cowboy boots with zippers is not many, and they are not really popular with longtime cowboy boots fans. I don’t really know the reason, but it seems that the image of boots with zippers doesn’t really go in the same direction as traditional boots.

That’s just my personal opinion, though, we can’t deny that cowboy boots with zippers also have certain advantages. They will help you put on / take off easily. Just unzip, that’s it.

Because of that advantage, today many places have started to introduce the service of adding zippers to cowboy boots. Even so, their prices are not cheap.

You may have a hard time finding a traditional cowboy boot with zippers. But zippers often appear in women’s cowboy boots, especially western booties or ankle boots.

Western booties or ankle boots are quite special variations that are very popular with women today. They are varied in construction and have a very liberal style, so a lot of pairs come with zippers.

Can zippers be added to cowboy boots?

Cowboy boots can be added with zippers, but this is not an easy thing to do at home. I recommend looking for good cobblers.

Overall, adding zippers to cowboy boots doesn’t take too long, but will still cost you a bit of money.

Where can you find zipper cowboy boots?

Finding cowboy boots with side zippers can be challenging due to their limited availability.

Tecovas owns a number of cowboy boots with zippers for men such as The Nick, The Roy or The Zane. The general thing about those cowboy boots is that they are quite low.

Meanwhile, some popular Tecovas zipper cowboy boots are The Jenny, The Daisy, The Thomas Rhett Macy. These boots have a nice and eye-catching leather fringe at the zipper.

Women are often more likely to find cowboy boots with zippers than men, and if you want them, you should look for them in booties or ankle boots.

For men, if you search online, you can search for “zipper cowboy boots” in the search bar on any e-commerce site.

The zipper cowboy boot lines are often not many. Don’t just find them only in a single brand, let’s expand your search area to find a suitable pair.

The manufacturer will clearly state if a pair of cowboy boots offers zippers or not in the product description. You can also read the comments of users for more information.


Overall, the good news for those who always have trouble putting on / taking off cowboy boots is that they now have zippers, though just a few.

If you are female, congratulations, you will find them easier. Western booties or ankle boots for women often have zippers.

Men’s cowboy boots with zippers tend to be few in number. You will probably spend a lot of time looking for them.

Good luck!
