Back in the 16th century when women first started wearing boots their choice in style was limited. Their boots were hidden under a long dress so style was not considered a major factor. Limited technology also made producing differing styles restrictive.
New technology, new boot styles
As time and technology have progressed the types of boots available to women have also broadened. Women can now choose from a huge variety of boot styles ranging from cowboy boots, work boots, riding boots, fashion boots, lace up boots, fringed boots, ankle boots, snow boots and who could forget the recently popularized ugg boots.
Most major boot companies make both men and women's boots. Some are similar in style to the men's boots and offer a sturdy, reliable, good quality foot wear item.
Fashion boots - the height of femininity
A ladies fashion boot is obviously quite dissimilar to the men's styles of boots. They are elegant and stylish and designed to enhance a woman's femininity. The choices are endless - high heeled, square heeled, round toe, pointy toe, decorative, plain, pull on, zip up...
Choosing a fashion boot comes down to personal choice
Being a typical woman who loves shoes I don't think you can go past a knee high pair of black leather boots, slightly pointy toe, high heel, close fit. You know the ones I mean. Not only do they look great but they make you feel great too.
Of course my daughter wouldn't agree. She prefers the ankle length leather lace up boot that you can walk for miles in. That's right no heel. It's comfort all the way.
And that's the beauty of the woman's boot. There is something for everyone. From the fashion icon wanting nothing more than to look great to the casual girl seeking comfort, and everything in between.
