Boot colors like desert tan and sage green help maintain low profiles on the battlefield. However, some might have a different strategy on their boot-wearing missions. Perhaps they’d rather turn heads instead of blending into the background. Sure, they might tip off the enemy, but maybe that’s part of their strategy.
Or maybe they have no strategy at all. If that’s the case, then they probably own a pair of pink combat boots. (We kid, we kid!) While none of these boots are military grade, they certainly make a statement. And, of course, pink military boots go quite well with other pink guns and accessories.
One of the most recent sightings of pink combat boots was in season one of fashion-forward Gossip Girl. Since that was about three years ago, we’re guessing the trend of privileged teen girls stomping around upper Manhattan in colorful military boots didn’t stick. Maybe this year?
With a starting price of £29.99, these light pink flat-heeled boots for sale on eBay come in sizes 5-10. Or you can take the boring route, and buy it in gray.
Reminiscent of Dorothy’s ruby red slippers, the glittery Doc Martens from the 90s were sold last month on eBay for $76, which means they’re no longer up for grabs. Maybe if you click your heels three times, you can go back in time to bid on them. Just a thought!
For $29.99, you could own a size 6 synthetic boot that looks strikingly similar to Doc Martens. That side zipper could make life a little easier, and with a color like that, you’ll be spotted from blocks, even miles, away.
This is the first sneaker “combat” boot that’s crossed our path, and frankly, we’re a little perplexed by this boot-shoe mishmash. The seller promises you’ll “freak out” when looking at the bottom of the boot because “it has screaming skull faces and winged skulls on the heel.” Oh my!
Looking like it’s been through hell and back (well, at least for a pink boot), this faux leather boot with a 1-inch heel is advertised as brand new. Must be like that holes-in-the-jeans trend where beat-up equals beautiful. And for $47, this can all be yours…
