Hey guys, Dan Thomas from Image Doctor and Improvemant.com and watch the video above or read the article below to learn 7 MEN’S BOOT STYLES. 

 

Boots are just about my favorite men’s footwear as I think they bring a real element of cool and depending on how they are worn, boots can bring a little bit of edginess,  or they can just look like normal shoes that are ankle high when worn more conservatively. See a similar pair of boots below which are worn in each of these different ways.

If you’re into men’s style and want to build a versatile wardrobe, I definitely think a great pair of men’s boots should be one of the items inside that wardrobe. But there’s a range of different boot styles men have to choose from so today we are looking at 7 men’s boot styles so you can see which style you like best and go out and buy yourself a pair.

 

#1 – COMBAT BOOTS

 

Let’s kick off our list of the 7 men’s boot styles with the combat boot.

 

COMBAT BOOT CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Made from leather
  • Rounded toe
  • Height between ankle and shin
  • Commonly characterized by a rough, distressed look.

 

As the name suggests, combat boots (also commonly called military boots) were inspired by the outfits worn by those representing the armed forces. Whilst traditional combat boots were worn for functional reasons, modern day men’s style combat boots are chosen as a casual and edgy shoe choice which works well with very casual, street style outfits which you can see below:

CHUKKA BOOT CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Traditionally made from suede but can also be leather
  • Rounded toe
  • Ankle high (any higher and it’s not a chukka)
  • Maximum of 3 lace eyelets
  • Relatively thin sole

 

The chukka boot is more of a casual men’s boot style and looks great when worn with jeans, casual chinos and more casual outfits which you can see below:
