Fashionable boots in Tokyo up close
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.
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.
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.
