Name notwithstanding, Allen's sells a lot more than just footwear. Come here too for hats, belts, jewelry, and other boot-scootin' accouterments, and bring the young 'uns too. This store, in now trendy SoCo -- which explains the appearance of tie-dyed KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD T-shirts with the Allen's logo -- has been around since 1970. Its staying power through the area's sleazy years is a testament to its quality and fair prices.
