Crazy For Combat-Style Men’s Boots

by Chris

Over my post here, I noticed some PGG readers inquiring and emailing me about the pair of boots that I was wearing in one of the pictures. In case you are curious what that pair was, then here you go.

Meet the Combat-Style Men’s Boots from French brand Palladium. It’s the current craze in men’s fashion that you wouldn’t want to miss.

I bought this leather baby back in October and I’ll tell you what: aside from PGG readers, I’ve received a lot of compliments for it from friends, family, women, colleagues and heck even total strangers who I chanced upon the elevators in Makati. It’s getting all the stares and people keep asking me where I got it. Apparently, high-cut shoes like these that look like combat boots is the latest trend in men’s footwear.

What I love about this one from Palladium is that if you get tired of wearing this pair of boots all the way up high-cut style, you could fold it half-way and it will look and feel entirely different. It’s like having a new pair of shoes.

The trick is – if you are going to wear it all the way up, make sure to tuck your pants inside the boots.

But if you choose to wear it half-way, then you may want to fold-up your pants outward like this. The pair is being sold at 5,850 Pesos. See a couple more close-up photos below.

what leather boots brand that you can recommend and are available in manila that:
1) has high resistivity to water(if possible, certified water proof)
2) fashionable(i don’t really have the affinity to rounded tips just like the some famous boots brands available)
3) can take regular beating and can be worn in the office(i know DMs can withstand the grind but then again i don’t have an affinity to rounded tip boots)
