You have no idea how hysterically funny "horse people" are finding the current trend in "equestrian-look" boots. To the point of people asking us where we got ours--"Uh, from the tack shop, ten years ago, when I needed custom-upper tall boots with zippers in..." Even more laughable are the patched knee breeches. We've been wearing them for years, now we're finally "in"!

I like ankle boots with pants since they're more comfy than knee highs under pants. I like boots like these (http://www.zappos.com/steve-madden-candence-black-leather) with skinny jeans or leggings. I'll admit I do have a pair of regular Uggs, and yes they are ugly, but at 6am in the freezing cold when I'm walking the dog they're the best thing I've ever owned.

I have 3 boots that go almost up to my knees. One is brown leather that's "horse riding" style with maybe 1/2 inch heels. One brown basic brown leather one with 2 maybe 3 inch heels. One black suede pointy boots has a button on the top part with 3 inch stiletto heels. I also have pastel plaid rain boots that I purchased at Target and this one is not a tall as the other 3.
I personally can't stand the over the knee boots. Reminds me of hookers, ala Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman!

That kind of thing does happen... And sometimes, afterwards, things shrink back up; and sometimes, they're never the same again... ;)

Hah, tell me about it. Took me 11 years to get back to pre-preggo weight. I'm still trying to figure out how to get rid of my wrinkled and stretch marked tummy without a tummy tuck! blech

I need some cute ankle boots - I want a wedge heel, mostly. I have three pairs that I wear - black leather ones that are about calf length, brown ones that are that soft leather (I can't remember the English word for it) and shorter mid-calf ones brown ones. I used to have BearPaws as well, but I need a new pair of those.

I have skinny legs so calf high ones are not a problem for me.

I wear something like this (http://www.sears.ca/product/kamik-womens-huron-waterproof-snow-boots/654-000125146-NK2062X). I drive 30 miles to work each way, on the highway. I need the warmth (my feet are cold all winter anyways!), and I certainly don't need heels when I'm trying to walk across snow and ice!

I know PL will be mortified, but at some point, safety and the possibility of broken bones does outweigh fashion. Sorry.

I love laced boots so I bought these (http://i.ebayimg.com/15/%21B2udJzQBmk%7E$%28KGrHqEOKjUE%29%28MMp0QRBMjnK9h N6w%7E%7E_3.JPG) recently and they're just fab.

Ooh, those are friggin awesome!! Where did you buy them? I have an insanely high instep, and most boots have such a "flat" profile that I can't get over my heel unless they lace or zip.

I recently caved on the "bootie" trend and got these from Payless (http://tinyurl.com/2ay826c). They look hot under jeans, and the low profile doesn't cover my ankle bone and so I don't look stumpy with tights and a skirt.

What I really need is rain boots, though - and ones that I can tuck my pants into. Uggs are not good in the rain and too warm besides. I've yet to find a pair that fits over my heel, is wide enough in the toe box and also wide enough to fit over my skater calves.

I too have a long commute & don't like wearing heels to drive or walk long distances. I wear flats or sneakers to drive in and leave my nice shoes/boots in my file cabinet. Helps to make shoes last longer and reduces risk :)

I love this style. It's kind of like the men's wear for women fashion that was popular in the 90's. I was actually eyeing a pair of these at Famous Footwear.

I tend to buy more casual boots for fall and winter. I love the look of stilettos and have a pair for going out, but as for day-to-day boots (I have to walk to and from the subway everyday) I need a flat, comfortable boot. I started working with Sperry and they let me try out these Bayshore (http://www.sperrytopsider.com/store/SiteController/sperry/productdetails?stockNumber=9349333&showDefaultOption=true&skuId=***7********9349333*M090&productId=7-135780&catId=cat90048DM) boots. I love them because they are comfortable to walk in, and (bonus) they lace up so you can loosen or tighten them depending on how big/small your calves are.

Speaking of Sperry, I LOVE these tall rain boots (http://www.endless.com/dp/B002CVUV9K/182-7794282-0577548?ie=UTF8&creative=395021&linkCode=asn&tag=endlesscj-20&suppressRedirect=1&creativeASIN=B002CVUV9K). I'm normally a 5-5.5 so I'm wondering if the 6 will work.

These (http://www.sperrytopsider.com/store/SiteController/sperry/productdetails?stockNumber=9852997&showDefaultOption=true&skuId=***7********9852997*M070&productId=7-134200&catId=cat90048DM) are cute too, AND it has a wedge to elongate the leg line!

I bought them on ebay but they're by "Tamaris" a German label.

As mentioned, cute, warm and comfy are not mutually exclusive. (http://moccasins-by-mail.com/productimages/women/boots/4906_150.jpg)

I like the suede ankle boots with some faux fur on the edge to wear with my jeans. I also like the knee high boots in leather. I don't like the type that go over the knee, but the ones that go up to the knee are nice :)

I am looking to invest in a pair of boots that are stylish and will last for at least a few years. I have about a $400-$500 price range and I am interested in any input for good boots for men.
