What started as functional shoes for military members has now swept the fashion world. Like many other pieces that started as functional attire (like the duster coat and trench coat), combat boots have successfully transitioned from functional to fashionable.

Military combat boots

Combat boots, as the name suggests, were originally made for men who were fighting in wars. The laces allowed them to easily slip on and secure the boots on their feet. Combat boots were first wore in America during World War II. The bottom part of the shoe featured laces, while the top part had a cuff with two buckles to secure the boots.

Fashion combat boots

Combat boots as fashion shoes gained popularity in the grunge and punk fashion trends before becoming mainstream. Fashion combat boots blossomed in popularity towards the end of the 1980s and into the 1990s when grunge fashion became incredibly popular. Fashion combat boots are now a staple in fall and winter closets and wardrobes.

Combat boots give off an edgy vibe. You can tone down the girly feel of a dress or skirt by rocking combat boots. You can also go for a full edgy vibe by pairing combat boots with dark colors, graphic tees and hardware details. It's completely up to you which vibe you are going for. The best part about combat boots is that they are super comfortable so you can keep your comfort while being fashionable!
