Dove Wing Spur Straps For Sale

While the definition of a dove wing spur strap can vary, the term traditionally refers to a wide, one-piece spur strap in the shape of a dove's wing.

Because they are a single, one-piece strap they don't need buckles to join them together like other types of spur straps that are made of two pieces. They are a favorite with many cowboys and cowgirls.

Dove wing spur straps are also sometimes called "bird wing" or "pigeon wing" spur straps. For more information on dove wing spur straps please scroll down beneath the spur straps for sale.

More About Dove Wing Spur Straps

Like we said above, dove wing spur straps are usually considered to be wide, one-piece spur straps in the shape of a dove's wing that don't have buckles. Since they don't have buckles each dove wing is a single strap, whereas other styles of spur straps are two straps that are joined together by buckles.

Below: These spur straps are wide across the arch of the foot like most dove wings, but they are two pieces joined together with buckles. Therefore they are not dove wings, at least not by the traditional definition.
