Finding new boots as fall sneaks up is one of my essential August-September hunts. From fall to spring, boots are strapped on my feet almost non stop! One of the best sources for the perfect pair of boots is McDonald's Horse Supply. Last year I bought two pairs........1. classic black English riding boots & 2. caramel colored roper boots. I usually don't splurge like that all at once but I was completely torn & just simply couldn't leave without both! You know what, they were investment pieces. Worth every penny. Being nearby on my trip home, I swung by to check out the new inventory. Three pairs are already on my wish list! The thing is, these boots are as authentic as it gets. If you ever have the opportunity to pop into McDonald's you'll see equestrian riders, ropers, & farmers frequenting the shop. They carry a well edited stock of Justin boots, Georgia boots, & Tony Lama, just to name a few. The owner, Gwen Mitchell is always there. She is just as hospitable & knowledgeable as can be. My first trip in she offered to make a pot of coffee & this time she offered up some sweet peaches she had just sliced up. It's so refreshing to go to a shop where an expert is there to answer all of your questions on fit, style, maintenance, etc. One of my absolute favorite shops, anywhere! My only regret is that I should have taken more photos for you to see just how neat of a store it is.

What's your idea of the perfect pair of boots?

  1. I love that place! Used to go there to actually get horse supplies, but it's an incredible resource for boots. Agreed! My idea of awesome boots... knee-high with heels, rounded toe and buckles. And maybe some stitching details. Perfect!

  2. these are near perfect! I'm jealous!

  3. Thank you. And Jen, I knew you'd have my idea of the perfect pair of boots!

  4. you're so cute! i love that outfit!
