    black boots - is there a place for them in a wardrobe?

    To me black boots remind me too much of combat boots. I have a pair of black dress shoes I rarely wear. How often would I wear black boots (Hint: Never) But I can see them working if that's your thing.


    Those Cole Haan's are ewww. The Harley Davidson's look nice but aren't made very well.

    Dress for style, live for results.

      I have a nice pair of black hiking boots. In fact, they're the best (i.e., most functional) hiking boots I've ever owned: http://www.swaledaleoutdoors.co.uk/products/zamberlan/zamberlan-vioz-gt/


      The few times I've worn them in a non-hiking context, they've been noticed and complimented (by a barber and a lady who may have been delivering sarcasm)...but in my view, they're probably the worst-looking footwear I own.


      Some of the classic boots most often cited on this site are available in black. To wit:

      and

      But honestly, I'm with tomservo. To me, even the nicest black boots out there invariably evoke bikers and/or combat.

        I own these, and love them: http://www.bedstu.com/mens-bedstu/cobbler-mens/bed-stu-cobbler-post-black-glove-light-boots.html


        Yes, they have a hint of combat bootishness, but with a pair of cuffed, dark wash jeans, they look pretty badass IMHO. I bust them out once every couple weeks and always enjoy wearing them.


        However, I prefer brown wingtip boots any day of the week.
