85 Bodacious Boots

A Fashion Staple Continues to Rule Runway and Street Styles

— January 31, 2010 — Fashion
Every winter, bodacious boots come back to fashion with a vengeance. Even in climates that don’t require such serious footwear, boots are all the rage. While most boot styles are fabulous and desirable, some are strange, ugly or just plain wrong.

One such example is the toeless boot. I’d say that the person who invented them was a moron, but toeless boots sold, so obviously they were not the moron in that equation. Check out the slideshow for some seriously bodacious boots.
