Most on this forum, I would expect are female, so I thought maybe this would be right right place to ask. I'm a typical male office worker, and boots are a commonly seen thing, as well as a beautiful thing in my eyes. I cringe when I see some styles of heels (specifically stilleto) and females running up and down multi-flights of stairs in them!

I'm just curious as to why women wear boots in the first place, is it for looks, for warmth (winter-time?) or for any other reason?

Thanks

Are we talking about chunky boots or heeled boots?

Both types, ankle, calf, knee, over-the-knee and thigh highs. Any feedback will be most interesting.

i'd say looks.
cause there is no actual "need" to wear boots other than for that reason.
unless they are moonboots to keep your thighs warm

I have to admit that I'm more of a fan of chunky heel boots rather than "moon" boots as a rule.

Interesting reply

Any more comments?

It's a fashion thing. Especially those stiletto heels you cringe at.

I don't wear boots in summer..never.. I don't like boots that much.. I prefer open shoes, so in winter the number 1 reason is for warmth cause I dont want to freez my toes off and here in the netherlands with all the rain, get them soaked. and i go to estonia every winter theres always snow.. BUT when I buy my boots ofcourse I choose the prettiest..

Leyla M:

Any particular style, stilleto heel, chunky, platform?

A long ime friend of mine over in Texas bought herself a pair of over-the-kee boots online somewhere, with a 3" heel, and they look great. Very rare to see those over here.

I wear my lumberjack boots because they are extremely comfortable and they make me feel like a badass.

kitten heel-like a stiletto but only 1-11/2 " high...

as you like it -love the boots!

i wear almost exclusively boots or sandals...with a few pumps thrown in...

the reason is similar to as you like it...

as red riding hood might say-
'the better to kick your a**, my dear"
they provide more stability around the ankle which means you can talke long strides and be more confident...they are also damn sexy and very rock n roll...
