Combat Boots | Military Style Trend


The military trend has been making its presence known for the past few seasons. While military style outerwear has maintained its popularity, military style shoes – also known as combat boots, have been making their return from the 80s/90s.

To be honest, I wasn’t much of a combat boots fan in the past. The grunge/punk look of the boots never really appealed to me.

Nowadays, with designers trying to satisfy various style preferences, combat boots come in an array of styles. Some combat boots have maintained the rugged look, while others are a little more refined. You can find combat boots with gravity defying heels, while others have stud and buckle detailing. You can lace them all the way up or tie them halfway for a relaxed, undone look.

The great misconception is that you can only wear combat boots with pants and a top. Ehh — wrong! A flirty dress or skirt/top combo look just as great with combat boots. The combat boots add a touch of unexpected edge to a seemingly uber feminine look.

I even saw a picture of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt rocking her combat boots last week.
I’m picking up a pair or two. How about you?
