Allen's Boots is a landmark on South Congress in Austin, TX. It's a true testament to Texas coyboy-dom, where you can find everything from a sturdy pair of shit-kickers to $2,000 crocodile boots to extravagant rhinestone numbers with an embroidered Virgen de la Guadelupe. Warning to boot fans: entering Allen's Boots can cause severe bouts of boot-lust and envy. It's suggest taking a stroll down South Congress, checking out Allen's and some of the vintage stores along the way, then grabbing an avocado margarita and some tacos and any of the Mexican joints.
