I am just wondering I just got back from shopping and my little sister picked out a pair of mens cowboy boots and she intends to wear them to go dancing at a club and she said you cannot really tell the difference btwn the men and womens cowboy boots . what do you all think is it okay for a woman to wear a mans cowboy boot ?

Why on earth would it NOT be okay? She should wear the boot that fits best.

I once went shopping for cowboy boots in San Marcos, TX. Many of the same styles were available for both men and women. I wear a wide-width shoe and the men's boots were just more accommodating. I would never spend that kind of money on a quality and boot and not have it fit properly. I was so glad that the style I wanted was available in the men's size.

Since mens' shoes tend to be made a little larger, if she's going dancing, I would go in the dressing room and test the shoes out with some dance steps so the boots don't slide and cause blisters.
I have a pair of boots that were given to me and I don't know if they're mens or womens and they fit me okay as long as I'm standing around but the line dancing is another story and I got blisters when I moved around the way line dancing does.
So be careful

A lady would never wear a cowboy boot -- regardless of what gender it was made for.

If the shoe fits wear it, lol. Seriously she should wear whatever she wants. I wear men's sneakers all the time because they fit me better. I'm not going to try and squeeze into a woman's sneaker and be uncomfortable.

As far as cowboy boots like one poster said a lot of the same style come in men's and women's. No I don't think 99% of the people can tell and I really don't think they'll care if your sister wears a men's cowboy boot. And if they do they need to get a life, lol.

I know people who shop in the young boys department all the time because the clothes there are cheaper than the women's department. Almost the same clothes at a cheaper cost. Makes sense to me.

I once borrowed my husband's thick Winter sweather and kept it. People kept telling me how good it looked.
