Men’s boots are the perfect footwear for all-year round. However, especially in winter and autumn, boots keep your feet safe and sound as they offer much more protection than normal shoes. Men’s boots come in countless sizes, styles, colors, and materials; for every foot, there will be the ideal boot! There's a good reason why boots for men have been a wardrobe staple for centuries.
The History of Boots
Boots have been around for an incredibly long time. The earliest known boots that were discovered date back to 3200 BC! These types of boots were also made of animal skin, and they were designed to protect the feet from the cold and elements. Of course, in the early days, boots were a practical necessity and were not considered a fashion item. If you wanted to walk on stony terrain, you simply needed to wear boots to protect your precious feet!
High-quality boots as we know them today were originally made for work, such as for farmers or soldiers. A little bit later, boots became an actual status symbol. If you had a nice pair of boots, you had a lot of money. Then, around the 18th century, men’s and women's boots became much more elegant. Especially in the early 19th century, they turned into a fashion statement. Lace-up walking boots and, later, Balmoral and Derby boots were very common footwear amongst the rich. Unlike aristocrats, the poor couldn’t update their footwear frequently. Rather, they had to repair and adjust whatever shoes or boots they owned. This changed again by the 1900s as shoe and boot production improved with the development of new machinery. This made boots more affordable and available to everyone, not just the wealthy.
