Do you think it could work, or do you think it would look stupid.
I wear boots often and I do not live in Cowboy Country. In places where they are not the norm, my experience is boots draw attention to you like magnets - and that may take some getting used to. When I first started wearing them, I'd be out with friends and I'd always seemed to get comments about the boots, which ranged from complimentary to derogatory. Now, nobody says anything because they're used to seeing me wear them.
However, with people I don't know (or associates I vaguely know) the comments I get are always favorable. Women seem to always notice and compliment them. When they do, I'll talk about the boots and more often they tell me stories about theirs. Once at work, I had been working with a woman at least an hour on a project when she stopped mid-sentence and said "those are really nice boots you're wearing" just out of the blue.
I definitely think the boots would work. In this day where everyone seems to conform to the fashion other dictate, I love the independent (albeit small) expression wearing boots in public make. Would love to hear how it goes with you.
