Sisters Lizzie Means Duplantis and Sarah Means founded Miron Crosby in 2017 in Dallas, Texas and opened a second store in Aspen in late 2021. The girls are quintessential country meets city while always being chic. Growing up in west Texas before moving to New York City, the sisters wanted to bring an authentic, yet elevated, boot to the market. The company’s name is the perfect representation of the fusion: Miron after the girls’ grandfather and Crosby because it was their family’s pasture in Texas and the girls’ favorite SoHo shopping street.
After opening the first store location in Dallas, the sisters set their sights on Aspen. “It’s awfully hard to ignore the magic that is the mountains in Colorado,” says Sarah. “We dreamed of Aspen as a location for our second store for many reasons. The local community is so amazing and when mixed with the seasonal and tourist communities, it is such a unique mix of smalltown charm and global shopping accessibility.”
Wear the boots in a Dallas diner, Aspen art gallery or fancy New York restaurant. “Being ranch kids, we’ve never not worn cowboy boots. We strive to create a boot that fills every wardrobe need: something to wear from work to date night to carpool—in the city or in the mountains,” says Sarah. The boots are produced at the Rios of Mercedes factory in Texas that is owned by the girls’ uncle, making it a full-on family affair.
What’s in This Fall
The women’s boots come in short, midi and tall. “Wear your shorty boots with short skirts and with ankle- length cropped flared denim. Midis we think shine best with a midi or long hemline and your tall boots look good with everything, truly! Wear what you want to wear, and just add boots.”
This fall, expect exotic skins, clever color combinations and specialty stitching from their new collection. And if those don’t tickle your fancy, there are two customization options: adding initials or symbols to the boot’s ear pulls or doing a full custom design. Women’s boots cost between $895–$2,759 and men’s boots cost $950–$3,395.
