Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

The original square-toe style, the cowboy boot boasts a rich history. From James Dean and Neil Diamond to Marilyn Monroe, countless icons have donned a pair. Endorsed by bona fide stars and street style stars, it's clear that Western boots aren't just for cowboys. Some of our favorite designers are also giving the cowboy boot their stamp of approval: This season, we saw labels like Isabel Marant, Acne, and Pierre Hardy produce their own version of the beloved shoe. So whether you're pairing yours with jeans or sweats, there's a boot that's right for you.
