How do you feel about knee-high boots? While I highly appreciate current fashion to see many Ladies wearing high boots - I am not sure about Guys. So how do you feel about kneehigh boots in general?

Unless they are work boots or cowboy boots, men do not wear knee-high boots like women do. It is definitely a feminine fashion trend for stylish boots. Men have to stick with sneakers or shoes for style.

I dunno. My son had knee high (or darn near it) doc martens.

I love boots. Knee high or higher, on me. I have several pair. I like to watch historical dramas and the like with swashbuckling guys in boots so I guess it is not something I dislike, just something I don't see in person outside of Ren faires.

Guys (who like gals) should never wear boots as a fashion statement. Guys wear boots for work (i.e., construction, policeman, fireman, combat, etc.) and should never ever ever wear "knee high" fashion boots.



The only time this is acceptable is if you are a rock star like Ozzy Osborne or Lenny Kravitz or a super "colorful" gay guy who works in fashion.

I think knee-high boots look fine on a guy, at a Renaissance faire. Otherwise, they seem kind of out of place.

I agree. Those kind of boots look nice on most women. Not so for men (in my opinion).

I can dig the look if its done right. It usually takes a certain kind of fashion forward guy to pull them off, though.
