Best Place in West Hollywood to Find Leather ... for Your Feet - 2011
Boot Star on the Sunset Strip serves up kicks to all sorts of clients — from those familiar with the range to those who've only seen one in a John Wayne movie. Count Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and David Letterman as fans. Founded in 2002, this urban cowboy shop doesn't put just cowhide in the fashion spotlight. Guys — and gals — can slip into rattlesnake, python or caiman belly, aka crocodile. And forget Justin or Tony Lama. The shit-kickers at this cowboy-meets–rock star haunt aren't your run-of-the-mill ropers. Custom-designed down to your choice of style (Skulls? Check. Guns? Of course. Flames and guitars? You betcha!), as well as leather and foot shape, Boot Star's footwear has even the wildest Westerner covered. Of course, this gear doesn't come cheap. Expect to fork over at least a couple of Benjamins to lasso a pair of Luccheses or Libertys. 8493 Sunset Blvd., W. Hlywd. (323) 650-0475, bootstaronline.com.
