It's that time of year again! Music is in the air as people gather to hear their favorite bands and rock the new summer looks. Need some help? Whether you prefer the indie, hip-hop vibe of the Coachella Valley Music Festival or you're more of a country music fan at the Stagecoach Festival, we've got your favorite festival fashion picks.
Start at the root with the boot. You need something that says bohemian style that won't kill your feet. Our perfect festival footwear includes our tall fringe boots by Liberty Black, our short side zip boot python styles from Old Gringo and our new tall Mayra style also from Old Gringo. Or if you're looking for more classic western wear, we have the all-time favorite Old Gringo Bonnie boot, the Liberty Black Vintage Canela, and the Old Gringo Red Nevada for a classic cowgirl boot silhouette.
No pockets? No problem! Throw your essentials in a McFadin fringe bag that is both functional and fashion forward.

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.
