You Said: Yes to Military Boots

February 7th, 2010

omiru-poll-result-military-boots_020710

we-who-see-field-boot_020710We asked: Would you wear Military Boots?

You said:  Yes to Military Boots (but just barely), with a hairsplitting 51% to 49% vote.

Style tip? Even though the split was pretty close to 50-50 on this vote, we still encourage you to go out and at least try on a pair of military style boots, if you don’t buy them outright.  Military boots are the natural choice for this Winter’s rock chic style, and they’re a wonderful counterpoint to Spring’s mix of femininity and utility.  You can wear these versatile military boots with skinny jeans and leggings now, and in a few months, pair them with a feminine frock or a khaki cargo pant.

Next question: Winter Shorts sound like an oxymoron, but wool, cuffed knee length shorts are a key fashion trend for Winter 2009/10.  But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear Winter Shorts?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Depends what kind of dress we’re talking about. Some people can totally get away with boots + a dress (usually a minidress of some description) and others can’t (like me haha). I think tall people do a better job of pulling it off because the boots don’t visually “cut off” their legs as much as they would on a short person.

    eh, i’m not a fan of the military boots for some reason. reminds of doc maarten’s and nirvana in the 90’s, which i loved at the time, but i’m not feeling in 2010.

    I would feel like a hitler youth in combat boots.

    I think Angelina Jolie is the only one who can pull off these military boots and still look smoking hot.

    I love military boots, although I tend to refer to them as just “work boots”. I spent ages trying to find a pair that was calf length and laced with a decent grip sole so I could actually wear them on frosty mornings without slipping around. Have to admit I would have prefered a sleeker boot, but these actually look great with a floral dress or jeans and a going out top and they’re quite practical

    Anyone know what boots are in the picture?

    I have been on the lookout for a feminine looking military style boot that laces all the way up to my knee. The few that I do see in stores are too chunky and they make my 8.5 feet look like they’re a size 12. I was also thinking that a pair that hits right at my ankle would be practical for me since I am 5′2 and versatile enough so that I have lots of options.
