The crystal ornament in the picture is in the shape of a cowboy boot. Unlike conventional boots, this one has a smooth, thin leather sole, making it easier to enter and exit stirrups. Cowboy boots generally have elevated and sturdy heels to lock into the stirrup to prevent slipping out of stirrups. Cowboy boots are made mainly from oxhide. Ostrich, alligator, and snake leather are used as well. Regardless of the leather, cowboy boots are water-resistant and extend past the ankle to withstand the harshest environments. The functionality of cowboy boots shows the hard life that people endured in the west. Today, cowboy boots have become an icon of American culture and will undoubtedly inspire people for generations to come.
