Cowboy boots are eternal for some, but when cheap versions start showing up in suburban mall stores like Charlotte Russe and more-than-rent version stalk the runways at Roberto Cavalli, the style has gone main stream. The last time I remember everyone needing cowboy boots, was around the turn of the millennium thanks to Madonna's Music album. (While I've always had a fondness for cowboy boots, that round of interest in the West left me with a purple, faux snake cowboy hat that I wore often.) What has spawned this resurgence in popularity is unknown, but it's right in line with my recent fashion leanings.
