Riding boots on guys?
I'm secretly waiting around waiting for them to come into style.

I don't see why not, guys have been wearing them for centuries And they must be available, for their actual purpose ... I believe we have a thread about this that luckyme started (she's an equestrienne) ... should be in the Shoes forum.

Awesome. I notice that they appear in a lot of scifi films -- star wars...aaannddd...well, can't think of others at the moment. But they always look pretty good, on equestrians as well. But I don't like the rest of the traditional equestrian look as much..

Why do you have to wait for them to come in style first before you wear em?

Good point. Though I almost sort of wish other people wore them too, I like to see how good people look in them. One of these days I'm going to find the perfect pair of them too..

They were everywhere for F/W 09-10.
I praised the lord as I adore them.
Riding boots and lace up boots.

I love it too! But I'm not sure if I would have the guts to rock them!

Where's that second pair from?

I like the look. Personally I have quite large calves from biking so I think in my size I would be out of luck or need something custom.

The ankle boot option should work for you though ... many women have the same issue with full-length boots ... I believe we have around here somewhere a thread with solutions
