A South Congress landmark for decades, Allens is impossible to miss: just look for the huge red boot above the door. Set amid trendy, touristy SoCo, Allens is anything but. More than a dozen brands of cowboy boots (including Durango, Frye, Justin, Lucchese, Sendra, and Tony Lama) are displayed on rows upon rows of shelves, along with other Western wear. If you're a newcomer to the boot world, study Allens' Web site before your visit for some basics on proper fit. A second
store is located north of Austin in Round Rock.
