Shop local in Austin and Round Rock: Allens Boots
Looking for a local place to get some Western-style boots for the kids during your visit to Austin?
Try Allens Boots on South Congress Avenue; the area is often referred to by the trendy term SoCo and when you’re ready to kick up your boot heels, there are fun, funky and family-friendly places to shop and eat nearby.
Besides that whoosh of leather smell when you walk in the door at Allens, they have hats, accessories and Western wear….but it’s mostly all about the boots, with names like Mad Dog Goat Roper and Old Gringo (or hand-tooled Lucchese if you want to drop big bucks.)
Be sure to look for a squarish toe box so those tootsies aren’t squooshed. The pointy-toed boots look fashionable but, er, those boots aren’t really made for walkin’.
