It might be safe to say that Big Tex has the biggest kicks in the Lone Star State. And now, he wants everyone else to pick the boots he'll wear as he watches over this year's State Fair of Texas.
The State Fair of Texas and Lucchese received more than 250 entries for a Big Tex boot design contest. Ten finalists are now vying for votes to see which ones will come to life by Lucchese and adorn Big Tex's massive feet.
Voters can rate each pair based on creativity of the design, representation of Texas pride and the design itself for Big Tex. Jessica Martinez, the sole Austin representative in the competition, created boots with Texas landmarks and a big blue Texas sky.

Others include stars, longhorns and bluebonnets. All inspire some whistling of "Deep In the Heart of Texas" and cravings for a cold Dr Pepper.
The contest runs until March 6, and the winner will be announced in mid-March. The 2019 State Fair of Texas runs from Sept. 27 through Oct. 20.
