Cowboy Boots and their amazing Story - From the very Beginning until Today
What about Norway and Cowboy Boots?
Oh yes, we want, we really want, but we’re struggling really hard uphill to . . .
Norwegians are very clever dealing with oil, shipping and fishing, but our neighbors the Swedes are squeezing us completely when it comes to fashion.

In addition, the Swedes do dear to show themselves off in what’s IN or fashion at any time - for example, Cowboy Boots.
Hereby, I allow me to "throw the gauntlet" to challenge the Norwegian fashion houses, designers and fashion experts. Now even Norway has to start daring as well, and we also have to stop “looking down” on what’s allowed to be wearing internationally and what’s fashion in all other countries.
I'm very tempted to say:
Hello Norway, wake up - Welcome to Fashion as in 2016
What Norway has in common with America? They fail to distinguish one's character (read actor) from the real person. If they have added an actor to hatred, they hate everything about that person. This happened with Svein Krogstad and his Cowboy Boots in the Norwegian TV series Hotel Caesar. After this cowboy boots has become something you'd rather not show themselves with. But are cowboy boots really something to be ashamed of?
Not at all if you ask me; and finally they’re on their way back into fashion again, even in Norway, especially if you’re a kind of international, rich and famous We have to rely on the younger generations, who really dare, both using them and preserving a historical treasure, not only the Norwegian Sweaters.
Many international brands and famous fashion houses are profiling Cowboy Boots internationally, even Swedish ones. The Swedish owned GANT (a brand we’re most familiar with) are selling their clothes as part of a slightly upscale lifestyle - but still having cowboy boots in their range. Another very large multinational corporation is Marlboro having their very own range of cowboy boots as well. Other fashion houses, not having their own range of cowboy boots, will most likely use the Spanish brand Sendra on the catwalk presenting their collections. Sendra is now one of the most respected and best quality boots.
Anyway - On this website you‘ll find the unique story behind the legendary Cowboy Boots - a very interesting and exciting story about why they look as they do; the development and how they’ve changed in time and fashion. You can also find good advice on care and maintenance of real genuine cowboy boots and regular shoes as well, for those who needs.
Yes, we have to rely on the coming generations. Let’s hope they’ll make sure the legend of the cowboy and his boots (the result of boot-clad men worldwide) will be preserved eternally - even in Norway.
