Do you think a man could wear those women's boots?

    You could totally wear those boots! Those seem to be more unisex, so if you like them, go for it!

    As long as the heel doesn't get too high (>2 inches) and narrow, more the narrow heel more feminine. Less frilly is better you can get away with them.
    I have a couple of pairs of Frye, 15R harness (http://www.thefryecompany.com/products/77324/harness-15r) and Phillip Harness tall boots (http://www.thefryecompany.com/products/76849/phillip-harness-tall) that are pretty amazing. I think that if you stick more with real leather they will be more gender neutral looking. I was not really looking for women's boots, but more tall boots.

    Frye size 11 women is about 9.5-10 guys.

    For the boots you were looking at slap an old school leather biker jacket on and you maybe could do it. I think that your right about the straps though. The other thing that gives a way is that most women's boots seem to be really baggy/floppy in the shaft.

    I just saw another site in Holland that had me drooling http://www.bootsandwoods.nl/shop for some of the tall boots. I just have to see if they take visa.

    My boot's adventure started after I got my motorcycle license and discovered there is a good reason for having tall boots, but as you say they don't make many interesting tall boots for guys.

    Wesco boots does make tall boots for guys and chippewa
