What do you think of when you think of cowboy boots? Do you think of the cowboy somewhere on the western range, sitting high up on his horse, wearing a dusty pair of brown leather boots made from the cattle that he’s driving across the plains? Or do you think of maybe a movie scene where someone comes walking through the door and the first thing the camera goes to is the slick pair of exotic cowboy boots that he’s wearing? You know the ones. They are shiny like snakeskin from a rattlesnake or python. They might even look like the skin from an alligator or lizard. There are a bunch of things men’s exotic skin cowboy boots can be constructed from.

Either way, I bet those exotic boots come to mind once in a while when you think of cowboy boots. It’s hard not to. From the sound of them walking across a tile or wood floor to the unmistakable pattern of scales or skin, exotic cowboy boots always stand out in a crowd. Below I have put together a collection of 5 of some of my favorite exotic skin boots. One of them you might not think as being that exotic, but in the world of cowboy boots, cow leather is usually king. As always, let us know in the comments below if you have a favorite boot or skin that I didn’t mention here.

Due to many peoples / cowboys demand for a more decorative look and a higher end cowboy boot, this lead manufacturers to use a wide range of exotic skins along with the traditional cow leather in their boot lines. These high-end boots still retain the classic look but with a refined touch. Many different skins such as genuine ostrich, alligator, goat, lizard, snake, buffalo, and kangaroo are combined with traditional leather for a unique look that is sure to grab the attention of anyone in the room. Along with these superior skins, expert craftsmanship, and the implementation of more ornate designs these exotic skin cowboy boots have a look that’s a cut above the rest!

Lizard skin is a great material to use for your exotic skin cowboy boot. Why is this you ask? Well besides the durability, they also come in a bunches of different colors and their patterns are also very distinctive.

The Birmingham’s from Dan Post are an exquisite men’s exotic skin boot that is definitely one of the most popular types of boot when it comes to exotic animal skin boots. Caimans are a very close relative to crocodiles and alligators found in Central and South America. The caiman is one of the boniness skin when compared to alligator and crocodile skin, so this gives it very deep and distinctive ridges. They definitely stand out when compared to other cowboy boots. Also, caiman have very calcium rich deposits in their hide which give it a patterned effect that can last through the dyeing process. This can give Caiman hide boots a very distinctive look that you just can’t find in alligator or crocodile. Another great benefit with Caiman is they are more prevalent than alligator or Nile crocodiles. This makes them generally less expensive. Hey, you can often get a more distinctive and detailed look with caiman at a cheaper price when it comes to exotic skin cowboy boots. Sign me up!
