Ted wearing his Red Cowboy Boots

Ted's Red Cowboy Boots, as the name suggests, were a pair of red colored cowboy boots which were owned by Ted Mosby. He is under the impression that he can "pull them off", but everyone else thinks otherwise. However, a gay couple (dubbed the "G-CWOK" for "gay couple without kids") believed Ted can pull them off after he asked them because of their "impeccable taste and style". He bought them while Robin and him were dating, at the same store she met Nick for the first time, after a woman told Ted that he would look hot in them right after he was mocking anyone willing to wear them.

Ted enjoys wearing colorful footwear; in Disaster Averted he wears pink rain boots, claiming that "pink is easier to spot from the rescue chopper".

The Red Boots were finally destroyed at Weekend at Barney's when Jeanette burns them. Because this action led to Ted being ready to finally settle down, the Red Boots represent a life that he was finally ready to leave behind.

The destruction of the Red Boots coincided with the destruction of Barney's The Playbook, an item that represented Barney's old life.
