Wahoo! is a great little store in Santa Fe, New Mexico run by Diane Zamost. Cowboy boots, vintage denim… it’s a curated closet of coolness.

I get a lot of e-mail from folks asking me “What should I wear with my cowboy boots?

This shop has all the answers. You can go retro with a snap shirt and a little fringe… or grab some studded denim for that outlaw-rocker look. Want to go traditional? a little “range-y” maybe? Wahoo! has beautiful silk scarves, and decorated gloves and belts. (You may mix-up all 3 of these looks only under Diane’s supervision.)

Blue Ribbon Boots

Southwestern Design Conference, 2005
Best Artist Award: Art to Wear

Lisa Sorrell was taken by surprise by her award…saying that bootmakers are often overlooked in design shows like this. Perhaps this is because cowboy boots so often hold true to their “function” …whereas the jackets and jewelry can reach much farther into fantasy.

Lisa’s “Water Serpent” boots have an intricate inlay design and beautiful finishing work which showcase Lisa’s fine craftsmanship… the movement found in her serpent’s curving path illustrates Lisa’s artistic flair.
