Did you know, Boots can extend up to your ankles, calves, knees, thighs and sometimes the hips? Of course, we don’t see ‘hip-high’ boots in popular fashion unless you’re Lady Gaga! So with all of these different styles of boots the possibilities are endless – knee-high, riding, ankle, cowboy, combat, lace-ups, wedge, hiking, football, gumboots and the list goes on. Best known for their durability and comfort, boots were originally preferred for strenuous activities. But now they are fashion staples. Womens Boots are no longer footwear set aside for wet, cold weather. Nor are they restricted to a particular kind of clothing. They come in all shapes, colours and fabrics – not just rubber and leather. Thanks to this boot revolution, the ladies are also head-over-heels in love with this classy footwear!
Pair up classic leather combat boots with stockings and a pretty dress and you’re sure to have many jaws dropping. Or, team up a pair of colourful cowboy boots with shorts and a crop top and you’re ready to rock the party! Travelling? Boots can be your best friend – go for flat soled gumboot style ones or moccasins. And if it is cold, suede leather should help.
Womens boots became a fashion accessory in the 1960’s, with singer Nancy Sinatra popularizing them among young ladies. Once the women started fancying simple boots, tapered/spiked heels, platform soles, zipper closures, pointed toes etc were introduced to make them trendier. Until 1970s, boots enjoyed a place of pride in women’s wardrobes. But by the end of 20th century, their popularity started fading away. A decade or so later, womens boots are making a grand comeback with a craze for the long bootleg. High lace-up combat boots are a favourite among the fashionistas; so are leather riding womens boots glamourizing casual jeans and shirt looks. Boot bolo’s, bracelets, straps, chains, and harnesses, are also being used to decorate womens boots.
