Mens Trend Alert: Rugged Boots

September 1st, 2009

What’s the key to men’s style this fall?  Masculinity.  Think men, not boys - and a decidedly grown up, rugged look.  To achieve this masculine look, add a pair of rugged boots to your shoe wardrobe.  Wear them with your weekend chinos and jeans for hiking in the woods - or just walks in the park.  Here’s our seven picks for rugged boots to invest in:

    These are great. I really like the Bed Stu Romel Boot.

    As an addition to the list, I find the Benyo boot by Aldo to have a killer look and some great details. I am looking forward to grabbing a pair.

    They are only $140.00.

    These are great!

    I’m wondering if I should pull out my old brown Doc Marten boots. Would they work for this kind of thing?

    do you tuck in your jeans under the boots because my jeans are too skinny to go over them.

    Regarding the tuck or no tuck, my vote is something in between, like this:

    I agree with Nate’s comment. The Benyo boot by Aldo should be added to the list. Currently the boots are half off. I own a pair of Timberland Earthkeepers and Aldo Benyo boots. Red Wing Iron Ranger Shoes, tan, are mentioned the most recent edition of Mens Health.
