Combat boots have been on everyone’s shoe wishlist for a few years now. The trend that was once limited to the military and motorcyclists, blossomed its way to the catwalk and streets over the last decade, and we doubt they will ever go out of style. Combat boots are so cool and comfy, that you’ll want to create jaw-dropping looks every day with them. But before we get into why combat boots are in vogue in 2019, let’s understand what exactly are combat boots. Combat boots are essentially lace-up leather military boots, typically coming in dark hues like smoke grey, black and dark brown. Once worn by soldiers during combat training, they are now fashion classics, capable of granting the wearer a statement-making style. Fighting or combat boots have glowed unapologetically throughout history, developing into a fashion statement that everybody would literally put their feet in.
Before we get into what makes Urban Shepherd combat boots uber-cool, let’s see 5 top reasons why combat boots are in fashion in 2019.
1. Not only do combat boots add a badass touch to almost any outfit, but they’re also incredibly durable.
2. Believe it or not, but these boots can serve you all year round. As the cold weather gives way to spring and summer, you (and your wardrobe) could benefit from a few lightweight boots to keep your style on point.
3.The key to rock formal and casual looks with boots is to lighten up the weight and material of the shoe and cut down the height of the boot to make it something you can wear without suffocating your legs. This is exactly what you get with combat boots!
4. These shoes are waterproof yet breathable, the win-win combination of footwear.
5. Among all types of shoes, combat boots are the most versatile next to Chelsea boots. They go with everything, from aesthetics inspired by grunge and punk, to looks infused with more sophisticated style. It is always a good idea to pair them with contrasting patterns, materials or colors as they easily overwhelm each ensemble with a much-needed touch of savageness and coolness.
