A Season of Layers: We’re falling for the new looks of AutumnPosted by Boot Star | 11.21.2016
WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED
There's no question, we've got you covered with all of your favorite styles for fall. Layer upon layer, you'll find all of them are made as much for style as for comfort. American made classics from Levi's Vintage Clothing, Rockmount Ranchwear, Midnight Rider and Stetson to name a few.
Things that Go Together
Fall + boots. Step into the season with our all-time favorites from Old Gringo, like Old Gringo Chocolate Hawk ankle boots or Nevada Bis Black.
When in Doubt
Reach for the staples in any closet -- a black leather jacket and tee. It doesn't get better than the super soft and comfortable, best all-American- made, Schott Perfecto Jacket. A flannel liner gives it added warmth from the cold, and easily layers over a cozy vintage t-shirt from Midnight Rider.
Ready for Summer: Favorite Statement Pieces for Your Summer WardrobePosted by Boot Star | 05.30.2016
A chill may remain in the air, but summer style is officially upon us in sunny California, and we’re excited about the sneak peak of trending summer fashion seen at the Coachella music festival that is sure to be at the top of everyone’s must-have list this summer.
Summer Fashion Trends
Here are the pieces that set the stage for summer ...
Soft sacks are the bag to be seen with and prairie is the new boho with slip dresses moving to the top of the list (with or without a super soft t-shirt underneath), and paired with thigh-high boots!
Pair a gauzy top and skinny jeans with booties, or a tie-front blouse, denim cut-offs and classic cowboy boots.
The bare shoulder trend continues with off-the-shoulder dresses or tops with boyfriend jeans paired with cute booties -- the perfect combination of comfort and style.
Take a long cardigan with you to ward off the chill of the desert nights and wear it over denim cut-offs accessorized with a fabulous tote bag.
And what about men's style, you ask? You can never go wrong with a vintage t-shirt and a trophy buckle with your denim.
When in doubt, don’t think twice about slipping on your favorite pair of cowboy boots. With so much style and versatility, from ankle boots to tall boots and everything in between, there's endless ways to wear cowboy boots.
Express yourself this season. Find your favorite styles at Boot Star.

Are you ready for fall? Men’s Western StylePosted by Boot Star | 11.09.2015
GETTING READY FOR FALL -- MEN'S FALL FASHION -- AMERICAN MADE
For years we have supplied products that we believe in; items that we are proud to carry and pieces that we wear. We are pleased to offer a line of men's products that are American Made.
In collaboration with the Los Angeles, California-based shirt maker, Dixon Rand, we believe we have created the best fitting, snap button, boot stitched pocket detail denim western shirt. With careful selection, we've kept to the classics in leather motorcycle jackets from the iconic leather powerhouse based in New Jersey -- Schott Leather. We've also added to our growing selection of t-shirts for not only men, but can also be worn by women. "The Chicken Ranch" by Bandit Brand has quickly become a favorite. Our handmade plain, tooled, and exotic belts from California and New Mexico can be worn as is with a simple buckle or with a trophy buckle from Comstock Heritage, which is based in the same state as our second location, Nevada. The handmade Coronado Leather bags made in San Diego, CA use Horween leather from Chicago for bags that can be utilized as a gym, work or weekend bag. Last, but certainly not least, is our most recent collaboration with one of our favorite boot companies -- Rios of Mercedes. Straight from the southern tip of Texas, the good people at Rios have been the perfect marriage of creativity and quality.

In a wide array of colors for every season and every outfit, Liberty Black boots embrace individuality.

Season of Skulls: It Just Wouldn’t be Halloween without Skulls…Posted by Boot Star | 10.31.2015
With Halloween right around the corner, you can pay homage to "Dia De Los Muertos" and shop our Old Gringo Klak featuring black leather adorned with festive multicolored embroidery of Day of the Dead sugar skulls on top and foot.
Here at Boot Star we have a unique collection of jewelry, belt buckles, and hand-carved skulls from the talented Lee Downey. Based in Bali, Lee travels the world in search of precious stones and various materials to create intricate pieces of art. When we see Lee a few times a year, we carefully select pieces that we not only love and admire, but also feel add another element of uniqueness to our stores. Some of these pieces include a hand-carved amber skull, a hand-engraved sterling silver trophy buckle with mammoth ivory and fossilized clam shell that has also been hand-carved into a skull shape.
