It’s hard to put history under one trend or one season, and it’s even harder to continually find ways to wear boots in accordance with history, with modern-day style. Well, one thing is easy - finding world-class leather motorcycle boots, that’s what Urban Shepherd is best known for. For the rest, let’s take you through the best motorcycle/combat boots to shop right now and some top ways to wear them this summer.
First, let’s face the truth. Sneakers are the ultimate casual shoe. They are comfortable and come in an array of different colors. But, a big issue with sneakers is that they are not appropriate for every environment and are limited to casual outfits. Not all sneakers are sturdy enough to protect your feet from different terrains and can withstand all types of weather. To be frank, they are sometimes way too casual. So what's the workaround? Replace your kicks with leather boots. Adding boots to an otherwise sneaker look can take any casual outfit to another level, classy and statement-making. For example, if you are sporting a cool new pair of jeans and a breezy shirt this summer, you need to add a well-made motorcycle boot to it.
Few things scream men's style louder than a well-made leather jacket and leather combat boot combo. It's reasonable to assume that many guys like to sport a bad-ass tough guy look. A pair of distressed jeans, a simple white t-shirt, a leather jacket and matching boots is a great way to add some rugged elegance to your look. If you're actually going to be riding a motorcycle then choose a boot that has a rubber sole.
These days, work boots are no longer just brogues or ankle-length Derby boots. Today, sturdy and practical combat boots are also worn with formal outfits. Most commonly used boots for work are the ones that come in shades of brown. These shoes are functional and uniquely fashionable. Due to their relaxed appearance, they tend to look best with tapered trousers. A pair of slim-fit, dark blue jeans paired with a crisp white shirt and brown combat boots is a simple outfit that’ll look great every time.
A pair of biker boots can make an excellent addition to your travel wardrobe as well. Typically featuring a low heel and lace-up details, biker/combat boots not only appear tough and edgy, but they actually are. For the perfect travel biker boot outfit, try partnering a pair with baggy cargo pants and a neutral t-shirt. Then, complete your biker look with aviator sunglasses.
