Yeehaw.

There are still a few more days to go yet—then three more weeks overseas—but ladies and gentlemen, we've got an early Fashion Week winner: cowboy boots, set to become the only shoe that matters. Ahead, 10 examples that might spur you into action (I'm laughing way too hard, sorry).

Red Boot

From R13, we've got a nod to a particular subculture that wears Monster-branded trucker hats and plaid shirts not for the irony, but utility. (Even if in this instance, that plaid shirt has been tied into a skirt.)

Red Boot

When the street style is already next-season.

And at Calvin Klein, the cowboy boot's normalizing power. Here, with a rubbery dress, they bring Raf Simons' American horror story down to earth.

Red Boot

Note the red shoe against the pink bag—big color combo for spring, you heard it here first.

White Boot

But that's not all! To show the versatility of the cowboy boot in non-close-to-its-intended usages, here they are topping (or bottoming, lol) off a series of looks from party-ready designer Cinq à Sept. See how they take down the fanciness of a marabou jacket? Clever.

White Boot

Especially into them with a gown, but if we're being honest, we're much more likely to copy the left-most look—where the boots replace sneakers in a slip dress/T-shirt pairing—for a more unexpected finish.

White Boot

Denim on denim, white on white—but broken up with a shoe that's not Adidas or a straightforward ankle boot. (Though those are still going strong.)

White Boot

Saloon madame who could shot you between the eyes at fifty paces with a sawed-off rifle in a great way.

Black Boot

Most bloggers and fashion people who've worn versions of this puff-sleeve Regina Pyo dress have done so with ladylike heels, but not Jan Quammie. How cool is she? (Also, another mega color moment with Tamu McPherson's minty green.) 

Shop similar: Valentino, $695

Black Boot

And if it's got Veronika Heilbrunner's stamp of approval—being that she's sold us on Timberlands and legit running shoes with dresses—we're once again very here for this.
