The return of grunge - style-wise, that is - has brought around the return of combat boots. No longer are they just for soldiers or so-called punks. They are for everyone who craves the looks rocked in the Free People catalogue (above left) or by Fashionista's Faran (right). And they are for me. I haven't bought a pair yet because they are just too darn expensive! But today I found this pair on sale at Hot Topic:
No, they're not the perfect combat boots. A little too shiny, a little too...I don't know...punk. But their price tag? $7.99! (Down from $49.99, if you're curious.) I'm not sure yet whether I'll end up buying them, but it doesn't really seem possible to go wrong with $8 shoes. If they don't fit (No returns), I can just donate them or swap them.
Oh, I love heavily discounted shoes!
