    I have basically given up and wear my paddock boots everywhere. Too difficult for me to remember to change footwear, apparently. My car smells like a barnyard and there are clumps of mud and, er, other things, all over the floorboards. Eh, who cares.

    I have friends that wear western boots with dresses. They look fantastic. They mostly run with the high fashion crowd when they do this as part of their community work and businesses. Gads, they look like they stepped out of a magazine.

    I can't pull it off. I do have a great pair of Olathes that I wear outside skinny jeans when I go to town during out tourist season. Always get compliments on them and actually get a great dinner after season if the local retailer gets some business. I tell people to mention having seen me (my nickname is an easy one) and he'll give them a small discount. It's a hoot. I hope he gives me a big discount when I wear this pair out!

    I have long since given up wearing what is 'in' - I wear what is comfortable and to heck with what others think. If they are talking about me then they are leaving someone else alone! Besides I think it funny when the latest fashion comprises of riding gear, ripped jeans or some other pretension of rural. They might ook good but they sure don't smell right!

    When a friend died her memorial service was arranged on a Fox Hunting Day. The Meet was mad an hour later and probably a third of the people attending were dressed in hunting gear. They went straight from the service to the Meet.

    Same here! I don't give two hoots what people think of what I wear. My western riding boots are my most comfortable footwear I own, and heck yes I will wear them every day in the summer. I don't care for tucked in jeans (Don't like how they feel) so I usually put my jeans over them. Super comfy AND look good.

    My view is if I want to wear my riding boots with my pajamas out to the store to get butter for dinner that I'm cooking because I ran out, I will. And if someone is going to make something of it then it's not someone I care to get acquainted with anyways. (It's a good 'shallow people' filter!)

    I live in AB Canada where lots & lots of people wear their cowboy boots casually. Most prob haven't seen a stirrup though. I wear mine for work, riding & casual. Can't stand jeans tucked in tough, think it looks bloody awful, but that's my opinion.

    I don't, but you certainly would not look out of place doing so. Riding boots are still fashionable footwear, especially some the new styles.

    It is comfortable wearing field boots in public. I in fact had them on over jeans today as did my cousin when we went in to get cigarettes today, we got asked if we were going to a foxhunt in the rain

    Personally, I do not wear my english field boots with anything other then breeches. I would wear them with skinny jeans to ride in, but there would be too much excess at the bottom and be uncomfortable. But it would still be to the barn only, and not out trying to pass them off as fashion boots.

    However, my cowboy boots I will wear with jeans or sundresses in the summer.
