An artist from Irving, Texas designed the size 96 cowboy boots. Jessica Bonilla beat out 300 other artists in a recent contest for the opportunity to design boots for the biggest cowboy in Texas. The finalists were judged on Texas Pride and creativity.
Bonilla’s winning design features a setting sun behind a cactus with Texas wildlife.
