Fashionable boots in Tokyo up close

with 5 comments

As I’ve noted before, Japanese women have a fascination with boots.  All types of boots, from lumberjack type to high fashion.  And not just in inclement weather.  There are many articles on the web that discuss this phenomenon.  My favorite boots are the above the knee style.  Something that you would expect to see in a Three Musketeers movie.  What’s amazing to me is that this trend has been going on for years.  It’s not a new thing.

The following photos show a variety of styles.

Look close. Two different pair of fleece boots.

Take a look at the two woman that are illuminated in the above photo.  Now look at their boots. Similar style.  And they aren’t together. And the closeup below.

What do you think?

The next pair are cowboy boots.  With denim jeans tucked into the boot tops.

And then finally, a pair that are unusual.  Don’t know what to make of them.  Individualistic?  Yeah.  Interesting? Yeah.  A fashion statement?  Not quite sure what kind of statement.  Regardless, she wears them with pride.

Off she goes.

Off she goes.

Yeah, they're ok.

Yeah, they're ok

  1. I like the fleece boots, but my favorites are the black booties with the white piping.

  2. The sheer variety of styles boogles the mind. I’ve got a lot more photos. It “seems” that most of the young women you see in Tokyo wear boots.

  3. I like fleece boots but it’s too hot to wear in HK. The first photo reminds me that I should get some nice hats in this season too.
