    I've already got a pair of cowboy boots....pretty new really...had them for xmas..........now I see a pretty damn good offer for 2 other pair of shoes..which ones are best....now if you say both are crap you're boring and probably wear grandad clothes or henley t-shirts.

    exhibit A
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mens-Brown-L...3488950&sr=1-6

    Exhibit B-change colour to black
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/US-Brass-Sti...3488950&sr=1-1

    exhibit C-my cowboy boots for xmas-change colour to black
    http://www.sheplers.com/mens/laredo/038369.html

    Now my problem is, not sure whether to go for something different than cowboy boots, but also want brown.....so not sure. Plus the cowboy boots are leather I'd say the others aren't...not a big deal though.


    So basically A or B? Please don't say option D-kill yourself

    I prefer A but why do you need another pair if you already have C?

    There are options other than ridiculous cowboy boots fit for fancy dress parties only, and boring white trainers you know.

    They are all truly awful, especially the second ones. The third are the best of a very bad bunch.

    They're all rather bad OP...

    Exhibit A are a bit S&M / Spandex play.

    Exhibit B will make you look like you belong on a register.

    Exhibit C look like something from a cheap 70's porno.

    I suppose of the three, C is the most desirable. Brown is just generally not a great colour for boots unless you actually live/work on a ranch.

    lol!

    I think you're getting a bit of stick here because the boots are a bit erm not-your-every-day shoe type. I suppose noel fielding pulls those sort of boots off because of his quirky style so maybe you can too?
    I wouldn't wear them but if i had to pick my favourite it would be C, although you've already got a pair in black so i don't see the point in purchasing another. So my advice would be buy a different style of boot, or some more shirts like you said you needed then you have a bit more variety

    A and C are hot. B would be ok in black or a darker brown with skinny jeans. Probably most important to make sure the rest of your clothes go well with the incredible shoes (without looking like fancy dress- avoid plaid with cowboy boots!)

    in conclusion, men who buy nice shoes and can pull them off gain a million extra attractiveness points


    EDIT: may have muddled the letters up. for A and C read biker boots and cowboy boots, for B read the shorter ankle boots

    Btw, have you looked at Doc Martins? They're rather cool. Plus, they give you a lifetime guarantee and will replace the shoes if they get worn out so they are good quality obvs!

    Not all Doc Martens have a lifetime guarantee, it's just one specific range they do. The standard ones still last for years though. And they are pretty damn cool.

    But black cowboy boots will look better. I don't know what you can wear with brown 'uns.

    Although your point about men's shoes and trainers makes interesting reading and it's true men's shoes are boring. I've only wore boots for about 2 years now.

    The shout for doc martens isn't bad wear them loose they look good. I have some from Topman and they're about the only good thing, minus jeans, that i've seen in there for a while.

    I said to change the colour to black on the link(on the right somewhere) and they're the ones I've got already! So I've already got black cowboy boots.
