Botas were a half-legging especially favored by trappers
and hunters in the Southwest, yet variations of them
were worn by trappers and even some Indians all the way
to the Canadian border.
They protected the lower legs of riders and men on foot
from cactus, mesquite thorns, and heavy brush. They're
also great for helping helping keep dirt and snow out
of your moccasins. These botas could be highly
decorated or left fairly plain.
