My older sister’s Sindy doll had cowboy boots. I thought those plastic accessories were unbelievably cool, and I don’t think that feeling has ever left me.

The longing for a pair of my own grew and grew, until I bought a black pair from a line dancing shop in Torquay at the age of 18. I wore those boots for years, through several cycles of fashion. I didn’t care whether they were trendy. They got incredibly comfortable and I just loved the contrast of edgy pointed toe, black leather, embroidery and silver hardware.

Those boots wore out and are long gone, but my heart is aflutter as I see the Western trend emerging once again. Miu miu’s resort 2016 collection featured cute cowboy boots (sadly sold out), and shoe designers for the high street have been inspired by this look.
