Western style has become an unexpected trend this season with brands like Calvin Klein putting out cowboy-inspired clothing and high-profile influencers rocking cowboy boots.

But for many of us, cowboy boots can be a little tricky to wear everyday, so we found some alternatives. These kicks range from slippers to sneakers to loafers, but all showcase that sought-after western-inspired look that designers are loving right now.

1. M&F Western Fleece Slide Slipper

Lounge like a cowboy in these camouflage fleece-lined slides from M&F western. They’re much more stylish than a typical slipper, and could even be worn to the grocery store with jeans or pants if you’re feeling bold.

2. Deer Stags Herman

We love these loafers because they’re low-key western, so they’ll elevate almost any outfit. Plus, they’re very well-priced for quality loafers at just $65.

3. Roper Darcy

These slip-on sneakers combine a modern silhouette and a southwestern design to make a unique shoe that’s easy to wear on the weekends or even to the office. The upper is made of a chic velvet and sequin fabric that makes the shoe a little more sophisticated than most sneakers.

4. Durango Music City Slip-On

Durango took a few key design notes from cowboy boots – full grain leather and toe stitching – and put them on a slip-on sneaker. The result is a unique everyday shoe with truly iconic western style.

5. Ariat Cruiser Fringe

Like cowboy boots, these Ariat Cruisers have the power to make a statement. They feature a leather/fabric upper with fringe details and a serape accent, as well as Ariat’s ATS Technology for all-day comfort.

6. Sol Sana Eastwood Slide

Slides are another huge trend this summer, but they’re often too casual to wear outside the house. These Sol Sanas solve that problem by giving slides a statement-making western look you can wear to dinner or to the bar this summer.

7. Laredo Boho

These western-inspired mules come from Laredo, one of the best boot brands around, so you’re getting authentic cowboy boot style and quality. We recommend trying them with a maxi dress when it gets hot, or jeans and a light jacket when it’s time to hit the town.

8. FitFlop Lace-Up Fringe Sneakers

These sneakers from FitFlop certainly skew toward modern with a gold color and minimal style, but the fringe details add just the right amount of cowgirl style.
