Men and boots. What do you think?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
How do you guys feel about men wearing boots? What kind of boots? Ankle boots? Calf Boots? Jeans tucked in, or over? Just curious...

What do you guys think of these specific boots?

Ah.... I wouldn't wear those unless I had a platted goatie, rode a Hog and made meth in my bath tub... Terminator 2 anyone??

I think the majority of members here will steer you towards more "shoe-like" boots; ankle boots are a favourite. You might check out the thread on RM Williams boots - they are considered by many members to be a popular, stylish boot.

Boots Rule!

It just so happens that I am wearing my old Kodiaks
that I recently custom dyed.
Pants fall just inside the tops naturally.

When I was in high-school, this was part of the "stoner" uniform, along with jeans and plaid shirts ("lumberjack jackets"; "Kenora dinner jackets")

I like and wear both ankle and high boots; however, I don't like the boots in the link.

I have no problem with boots, but those are just goofy. Those buckles serve no purpose other than decoration.

I agree they're goofy... but those buckles look far more functional than sham buttons on a suit.

I wear boots on a fairly frequent basis...western, Chelsea, dress lace-ups, even two pair of (heavy duty) Wescos that I wore riding the bike...but, as others have observed, I wouldn't wear those. They seem a bit too much like a costume!

I wear black leather ankle boots. Buying them was probably the best recent purchase I made as we had quite a lot of snow this winter. I don't tuck my jeans into them. I like them because they're not too heavy and look very simple and casual. If you were to see me where them you might think for a moment that I was wearing dress shoes.

boots are great. I do think those ones you posted are terrible though. Also when looking for men's boots I would always stay away from zippers(I know those ones don't have then) I just think Zippers belong on womens boots and should stay there. I tend to find elastic pretty bad as well...

+1, add lacing to the mix. Oh and anything that's a slip is for fairies only.

Those boots remind me of motocross boots. I suppose they would be good for protecting your lower legs on hot days when full leathers or chaps are a no go. To be truly functional though you would have to lose the leather soles. They're just to slick on the street.

Now as far as boots go I wear them more than any other footwear. On any given day I might be wearing ropers, classic cowboy boots, 6 and 8 inch construction/hunting boots and occasionally knee high waterproof snake boots. Eventually I'll get a pair of dress boots from Alden and then I'll be ready for anything boot wise.

arn't they more for musicians / rockers than people lurking around a mens clothing style forum?
