Boot Straps

Trusty old boots saw better days before scooping up around the horse barns.








I recycled belts and purse pieces for these boot straps. They gave character to all three pairs of my old boots.  There are endless possibilities on how to dress up plain ol' beat up boots. 







My vintage boots are distressed so I used distressed pieces to go with them. 
This bootstrap is just a belt that I cut in half, tied off the wood beads, rearranging a bit and allowed to dangle. I used the original belt hardware to attach to itself on this set. 

One large belt and a little imagination makes a set of bootstraps that can be worn on other boots.
Here are my old cowboy boots with a studded belt cut in half and purse pieces attaching them at the side. 



Using the purse hardware to connect the belt ends together also added a contrasting color. 



So old, holes were on the bottoms. I didn't wear them on rainy days.  Hubby had them resoled for me to keep my feet dryer.   As long as my feet don't pop out the sides;  they are keepers. 


My 70's (super vintage) boots with purse handles and pieces for straps here. 




Each set of bootstraps is removable to change the look of each pair of boots. 







It's just dandy! 








I'll keep them kicking around for a long time. Especially now that they are all gussied up.
