Shoe Blog: RUGGED URBANITE

This trend is not a new look, and takes its cue from the urban hipster, off-duty model or celebrity and is great for casual or weekend wear. Styles include “Moto” or motorcycle boots and lace-up Military or Combat boots.

Chunky soles, lace-ups, distressed or vintage-look leathers and antiqued studs or buckles give boots a rugged or worn-in look. The best part is they look great with anything from leggings or jeans to girly dresses or maxi skirts. For this reason, rugged or urban boots also the perfect “in between season” look.
