Tokyo – Boots are made for walking, one more time

Don't walk away, Renee

Don't walk away, Renee

A number of my women friends are really into boots.  However, those that live in Bangkok and Singapore very rarely wear boots mainly because the tropical climate is not conducive to comfort when wearing nearly knee high boots.  It doesn’t stop them from buying boots and taking holidays where they can wear them.   Friends in Hong Kong are a different matter as the winter weather encourages boot wear.  But nothing like the boot fashion environment in Tokyo.  In any given square kilometer in Shinjuku, Shibuyu and similar neighborhoods in Tokyo, the sheer variety is astounding.

I’ve posted boots several times in the past and sad to say I am reaching the end of my supply of boot photos from my trip to Tokyo at the end of October.  And if you consider that most of the photos were taken in an hour’s time in Shinjuku, it gives you an idea of their popularity in Japan.

  1. Thanks, Leo!!! You saved my money to buy the Japanese fashion magazine last month as you said “the pictures give me an idea of their popularity in Japan”.

  2. My pleasure, doreme. It seems that any style will do in Japan. However, the knee length are really popular!

  4. Leo, I doubt if doremereme knows the song you are referring to in the first pic. We are showing our age! Also, interesting that in the US the boots you must have are Ugh’s. I don’t see them in any of these Japan pics.
