Spur boots are an iconic style staple when it comes to western style. Though the spur's original intent is to direct a horse to move forward, Y.R.U has reclaimed the metal tool and branded it as an edgy fashion statement.

Y.R.U's 'West' boots are ankle booties offered in black and white. Designed to look like a more modern cowboy boot, these shoes feature a silver spur at the heel. While these boots aren't designed for horseback riding, the bold booties do portray the typical western aesthetic.

These spur boots feature a vegan leather upper alongside a removable strap with a removable spinning flower spur. The spur extends quite far out of the heel making for an avant-garde pair of shoes.
