I know this is a bit of a departure from my usual style – I’m much better known for super-high stiletto shoes than I am for chunky boots – but it’s a little-known fact that, when it comes to casual footwear, I have a bit of a soft spot for biker boots.
This isn’t something I’ve actually acted on, mind you. There isn’t a single pair of biker boots in my collection, and the pair I ordered earlier this year went straight back, because they were much too large, and made my feet look like they belonged on a cartoon character. I will persevere, though, and I’m sure that one day I’ll find the perfect biker boots, which should look…well, a lot like these ones by Carvela, actually. They’re chunky, but not too chunky, they have those all-important studs on the leg shaft, and they’re the kind of boots that look like they’ll only get better with age and wear. I suspect I’d have trouble finding the right outfit to go with these, because causal looks aren’t my forte, but I think they – or something very similar – could be worth the effort.
What do you think of biker boots? Do you own a pair?
