Boots continue to be one of the hottest fashions and the more eclectic, the better

Implications - Boots have always been key fashion essentials during colder months, but the designs that are creating the most viral buzz are those that are eclectic reinventions of traditional design. Many footwear brands are using effective strategies that consist of modifying an already appealing product, offering extra accessories, making it more affordable (or high-end ) and expanding to new markets such as children and pets.
