I hope I don't get flamed for this, but I have been looking for a nice pair of wing tip boots for a long time. About six months ago, I ran across a pair that I thought were absolutley gorgeous. The boots came in black or a chocolate brown. I loved the boots in both colors and the structure of the boot was just what I was looking for. These were the boots, and they fit like a glove. This sounds great, but of course there is a problem of concern. They are not exactly of a traditional height as you can see.



What do you all think?

High heels on guys may be something of a fashion fad now for club wear, but when you're doing something radical, you're taking a risk if you're not in the first wave, which you've definitely missed at this point. And unless you run with a fairly hip crowd, you risk people - especially women - thinking "elevator shoes". This goes double if the rest of your wardrobe isn't similarly fashion-forward.

I guess I'd ask myself "do I really want to spend 800 bucks for a pair of boots that will gather dust in my closet after next spring?"

Why couldn't they have made the boot in a traditional height as well? I really love the quality of the leather and the all around style of the boot, with the exception of the height, which I was getting over. I'm still torn.

What about the Corcoran 10" Original Jump Boot?

Newer models have a side zipper feature that makes it easier to put on and off...
Great boots. I have a hard time thinking of anyone wearing them w/ the kinds of clothes we generally talk about in this forum. I used to wear mine w/ chains around the ankles, metal shirts, flannel and torn blue jeans--best accesorized w/ an old favorite guitar and a vintage tube amp.

I guess it's time for one of these guys:

:aportnoy:

That said, well polished, I bet they could look real sharp w/ some crisp jeans and a shirt of your choice.

With those boots, I'd probably top 6'7". It'd do me little good, though, because no right-thinking woman would look at me.

(On second thought, maybe a wrong-thinking woman would do me good.)

Ugly boots. Move on.

Trickers

I have a pair of Trickers from Pediwear that I LOVE...and they are quite masculine. I wouldn't wear those YSLs, and they look uncomfortable to boot (no pun intended).

Gentlemen, we should learn from the experience of the fairer sex...many have wrecked their feet, wearing high heeled shoes/boots. Must we repeat said experience to determine that the boots listed in the OP are just a bad idea, all-around :)eek:) ? There are other boot options out there that feature more reasonable heel designs and are similarly priced. Take a look at Florsheim's boot options.

Again, the eagle and I are in agreement. I suggest the following Alden wing tip boot
