I own about 4 or 6 pairs of cowboy boots. Started wearing them when pregnant (!!!), my feet enlarged, I needed something wide and requiring little bending. Then I got hooked up. Great looking with jeans over them or sexy with a skirt.

Dan Post tooled and stitched (pointy toe)
Wrangler ("Wremember, W is silent") plain yellowish leather boots (the most comfortable of all I tried) (pointy toe)
Dan Post riding-like black city boots (round toe, low heel, wide tall shaft)
Acme boots - work boots for dirty work in the woods
And a couple of biker (riding?) boots, with straps.

While I lived in Chicago in my early 30's I had purchased a pair down South and wore them while walking around in Chicago one day with a "friend." She ridiculed them for 2 hours so badly I just stopped wearing them totally. Nobody wore them there at that time years ago. But she was just an uptight fool who never could think outside the box.
In Texas they are NOT common at all in innercity Houston nor are hats on men; however, in the outlying areas, I think it is pretty common. At least, nobody there would ridicule you for wearing them there if you decided to. Innercity Houston tends to be more Nike wearing casual clothing than boots and jeans, tho.

Personally, I like them with the right outfit. Boots are often really beautifully made and more like a work of art than anything else.

You WILL see boots on some of the businessmen in innercity Houston tho. Lots of attorney types tend to wear them I think at times. Part of the Texas mystique.

My buddy wearsn cowboys boots all the time and I live in SoCal! He goes to Line Dancing every week but he wears his boots very often to do regular things. If I was able to go Line Dancing with him (time issues), I'd probably get cowboy boots as well. I already constantly wear western shirts.

I wear them quite a bit for dressy occasions. They're quite popular in Phoenix for some reason, I see them quite often. Cowboy boots have always look better on me than dress shoes since I usually wear western-style dress pants and shirts. Heck sometimes I even put a bolo tie on!

Lots of real honest-to-gosh cowboys where I live. They wear cowboy boots to church with their suits. No big thing.

And the sight of cowboys with the performers at the Renaissance Faire is not to be missed!

Buy them and wear them with pride. Boots and attitude go together as boots are worn by confident men.
