Combat boots

Lisa: HATE IT! Especially when you don't even take the time to lace them up (Ahhemmm Lindsay Lohan)! I'm all for women wearing men's inspired wear, but I like it in a more tailored feminine manor. I get it, wear them with something super girly for an edgy look, but I still would not be caught dead in them. Hey, I'm finally excepting flat riding boots (and loving them by the way), but that doesn't mean I want to add laces and buckles all the way up.
I do think a few of these ladies look great in them, but again not something I'm going to be trying any time soon.

Ryan: So let me get this straight Hollywood starlets - you weigh 89 pounds, eat nothing but sushi & Red Bull all day and decide to CLUNK up your outfit with Frankenstein's boating shoes? Rachel Bilson, stop breaking my heart! For the record, the recent trend of dudes walking around with their Air Jordans untied is equally egregious ("tie your shoes!" says the old man from his front porch). Anyway girlfriends, keep killin' it with some flats, heels, pumps or whatever else you wear to keep us slobs interested (and you feelin' sexy/comfortable/sexy-but-uncomfortable), but leave the combat boots to marines & movie monsters.

Used to rock these back in the 90s. It's one trend I will pass on for now!

Hahahaaa! I LOVE Ryan's comments! I am not a fan of those kinds of boots either. Great post!

Yeah, not digging them again just yet. Having worn combat boots for years because I HAD to, I'm in no rush to wear them with a cute skirt. But I'd like to touch quickly on the fact that I'm not sure I'm ready to be old enough for our high school trends to come back around. PLEASE don't let oversized flannel shirts and "No Fear" gear be next! :-)

Yup! I 100% agree with both of you!! They are just too butch for me. They are great if you are a lesbian though! :-)

Your husband is so funny! But he is so right! I agree with you both! I do not like the combat boots! One trend I will not be participating in! :)

I don't like those boots on Miley.

Cassi said...

I'm not a fan either. Maybe some girls can pull it off but mostly it just looks too sloppy to me.
