focuses on the perfect pair (or pairs) of boots.

Whatever the footwear objective:

cozy comfort, utilitarian ready, sassy stepping, modern edge;

Whatever the fashion / style objective:

classic cut, distinctive lace-ups, bad-to-the-bone biker

saddle-up cowboy, riding to-the-hounds, ready for combat;

Whatever the height profile:

ankle, mid-calf, to knee, over knee, thigh-high –

there’s a boot pairing to satisfy any en vogue-set  footwear requirement.
