Cowboy Boots
Cheyenne, WY

These eight feet tall Cowboy Boots were produced by local artists as part of a fundraising project for the Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation. 26 of these boots were installed in town in 2004. Most of them were auctioned off later that year. There are about a half dozen still scattered around town. For more, see this website. [map]

Cowboy Boots
Columbus, NE
Cowboy Boot
Oklahoma City, OK
These two Cowboy Boots in Columbus are installed at the T-Bone Truck Stop. They were probably from the same mold and, most likely, made at the same time, as the Boots in Cheyenne, WY described above. These photos are from 2006. In 2019, the boots were washed away during flooding. They have since been returned and repainted. [map]

Justin Boot & Tony Lama Boot
Jasper, GA
The Boot in Clovis was installed above Sasser's Boot & Shoe Repair. This photo is from 2012. The store and boot are gone now. It appeared to be a former Justin or Tony Lama Boot. However, it didn't have the bulge for either company's logo.

This Tony Lama Boot in Black Earth stands in front of the Shoe Box shoe store. There are two of them and a work boot. They have been repainted and the Tony Lama name is no longer visible. [photo thanks Mark Comstock] [map]

This Tony Lama Boot in Oak Grove was another modern statue. It was installed at Centerville Western Wear. This photo is from 2015. By 2018, the store had closed and the Boot was gone.

This Tony Lama Boot in Eureka has been installed in front of Great Western Clothing since at least 2007. The name has been painted over since at least then. [map]

This Spur is about 27 feet tall and is believed to be the world's largest. The rowel at the top spins in the wind.

These two Spurs were 28 feet long and 14 feet tall. The rowels were eight feet tall. They were made of steel with aluminum scrollwork. They were installed in a traffic circle in 2015.
