Calgary Stampede style: Old Gringo Boots

Make a statement at the Stampede with your Old Gringo Boots

These boots were made for walking...

...to the Calgary Stampede...

It's Stampede season! And we all know the Stampede is almost better than Christmas for Calgarians. There's the great music and the midway, plus the feeling of community when everyone comes together for the delicious food and drinks! The best part? Creating fun Stampede outfits that will take you from the rodeo, to dinner, then back to the night show.

We think you might want a new pair of cowboy boots for the occasion.

Why Old Gringo?

Two men who share a love for boots founded the brand in 2000: A 4th generation French shoe cobbler and a boot enthusiast. Their creativity brings together a classic style with contemporary touches. They work with colours, florals, and fringe to create unique boots that were definitely made for walking.

Old Gringo says they have a passion for leading fashion—for being at the cutting edge—and we believe them! Their boots aren’t your traditional cowboys. Bright colours, intricate designs, and beautiful details make a statement no matter where you wear them!

Stampede style

We thought it would be fun to show you a few ways to wear a new pair of Old Gringos with items you probably already have in your closet! These beauties are eye catching statement pieces that will go perfectly with your favourite denim or sundresses. Just in time for you to elevate your go-to Stampede style now that we are only a few weeks away from The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!

Comfy white denim

We love white denim. It's a Stampede staple that you probably already have at home. We especially love white denim with these floral embroidered Old Gringo Boots! We've finished this look with a simple white blouse and a long blue jean jacket. Casual and classic, but makes a statement perfect for Stampede week.

If you need new white denim, let us know! Visit our shop and we can help you find the best pair to go with your new cowboy boots.

Your favourite sundress

We have quite a few styles of Old Gringos in the shop. These ankle height red ones look so cute with one of our favourite Johnny Was dresses. They would probably be just as cowboy cute with a sundress you already have at home too!

Another quick tidbit about these gorgeous boots: They all are handcrafted. Old Gringo combines manual techniques with technology like laser cutting and crystal application to create wearable art that doesn't sacrifice human craftsmanship. Each boot moves through at least 250 steps in production, including time to cure naturally.

That's how this red pair turns out so vibrant with its pretty little studs!

Your blue jean skirt

Who doesn't love a little blue jean skirt in their closet? Dig up your old favourite and choose a pair of new Old Gringos to go with it. We think it will be your go-to rodeo style for years to come!

With basic blue denim as your starting point, have a little fun choosing your boots. We brought in a few creative pairs, including a couple adventurous ones that feel very vintage western. If classic is more your taste, we have some more neutral tones too—like this black pair below.
