Cowboy Boots are a Summer Essential

Summer Glau and these boots are made for walking, a heartwarming love story, illustrated with numerous photos of Summer Glau wearing (mostly cowboy) boots.
Summer Glau is a native from the heartland of San Antonio, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that Summer, being from Texas,  is wearing cowboy boots most of the time. As Summer Glau recalls with an interview for Esquire magazine:"I pretty much wear cowboy boots and jeans every day. When I moved here [Los Angeles], I thought, I'm gonna reinvent my style, but it didn't stick."
Being an actress brings with it numerous obligations and with Summer being such a classy woman she likes to wear glamorous dresses on the red carpet. But when she attends other events such as conventions, she likes the more cool and casual approach for these events, from her wardrobe take for instance she likes to wear her hipster jeans with just maybe a casual looking top and still looks out of this world and gorgeous. As an aside, Summer is not “performing” when at conventions, hence her casual look and style, which provides an opportunity for a more personal level of contact with the fans.
Because of troublesome niggling injuries to her feet when she was a dancer, shoes are uncomfortable and very painful for her to wear (read the next paragraph on that topic). She has said that boots, specifically cowboy boots, are more comfortable and pleasant for her.




Our member Brandon met Summer Glau at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle back in April 2012 and he had the opportunity to ask Summer Glau a question on her feet injuries during her panel. 
I asked him to give his testimony on his meeting with Summer:
There's her famous quote, before "Serenity" hit theaters: "I think the thing I like about River is that she gets to be barefoot so much of the time. I don’t like shoes very much"
For the record though, although she liked the idea of River being barefoot, she said on Twitter (for the Alphas chat) that she prefered wearing combat boots because "the grates to the ship were quite sharp on my feet."
When i asked her about her foot injury at Emeral City Comic Con 2012, if her foot healed, she responded, "It did heal. I was a pretty serious ballet dancer. I had very bad tendonitis in my heels, and I broke one of my toes when I was 18. But, I kept dancing on it, broken, because I didn't want anyone to have my roles.  So, I just kept dancing on it, and it never healed. And, the tendonitis got so much worse that there came a point where I couldn't move my foot. And when you're that age and you're that competitive, and you take the time off, you lose a lot of ground. My foot eventually healed, it still hurts quite a bit, like if it gets cold. I have arthritis too. I've had arthritis since I was 12, in my toes. But I can dance in short spurts, and every show I've been on has me dance around a little bit."
As you can well imagine, Summer”s passion for boots seems to be stipulated by choice of clothes and feasible reasons as well.

A famous Austrian actor (and also a former Californian Governor) simultaneously shares with Summer Glau the same passion for boots. That the two of them have both played a Terminator respectively on the big and small screen is maybe not just a coincidence but just pure fate.
