Worth a Visit, Even If You're Not Buying Boots

We came here for entertainment, not to buy boots. But I did try on a couple of cowboy hats and came close to thinking about buying. Take a look!

Dealt with Jordan when I bought a pair of boots for my wife. When I got back to the UK it turned out they were a little on the small size. I returned them and a replacement in the larger size were immediately dispatched - no issues, questions asked or hassle. Great service.

If you're in the market for a good pair of boots this is the place. Made from any material imaginable to suit your taste and comfort. Directly off the shelf or custom made and shipped home. Stylin' in Austin!

We came on Saturday afternoon and the place was reasonably crowded. Huge selection. The prices are very high, but the quality is definitely there. This is probably the place to come for Texas clothing, such as boots, hats, and bolo ties. Definitely worth the trip, even if you don't intend to buy.

A visit to Austin means looking for a new pair of boots. Very conveniently located on Congress since if you are visiting this is a great place to wander around for shopping, music and food. Couldn't believe the incredible selection and how many pairs they had in each size. If you can't find something here you must not love boots.... More

If you can't find a pair of cowboy boots at this place you may as well hang it up. Went to Boot barn first. Allens has many of the same boots as them only slightly higher prices. But Allen's has boots you won't find in outlets. Higher quality and of course higher prices but worth it if you find what... More

Came to Austin for a wedding, and figured while in Texas new boots were in order. Rather disappointed in the selection. Luckily there are no end to boot shops in the area.

This store is so cool. I loved it. Did not buy any boots, but this is the place to be if you want them. Awesome hats, boots, Shirts, belts. They have it all. Very impress.

Having to check bags before entering the store is very disconcerting and if I hadn't actually needed a belt in a hurry would have shopped elsewhere. The selection of boots, hats and belts is very good and the service was good, prices ranged from reasonable to pretty expensive. The check bags policy seems to be prevalent in this area of... More
