A South Congress landmark for decades, this place 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 Frye, Justin, Lucchese, Liberty Black, 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' website before your visit for some basics on proper fit. A second store is north of Austin in Round Rock.

I wanted a pair of traditional Texan Cowboy boots and this was definitely the right place to go get them. There is a whole Cowboy boot culture that can be overwhelming if you're not familiar with it but the staff here helped me navigate through their hundreds of options to help me find my perfect pair.
