As we say our arriverderci’s to winter, I had a thought, “Why not send off the season with a a vote on 2014’s ugliest boots?” Check out below some prime specimens I spotted in Boston and San Francisco.
Perhaps you have seen or even own (woohoo!) a more hideous pair? Feel free to send me photos (firstname.lastname@example.org) of any potential new contestants!
As it stands now, there are five runners-up and three finalists. Of the three most vile boots I spotted in 2014, I invite you to cast your vote below.
I cannot tell, I confess, but after reading my Ugg post, you will see why I don’t trouble myself with those details.
Do they get any more lumberjack than this?
I certainly wouldn’t forego the coffee colored hosiery though, would you?
All the same, I would rate them a bit higher than some of other lovelies here, since part of me recognizes they could be useful while slushing through snow heading to and from the car.
Potential muggers are a little put off by this ensemble. Not the first thing I think of, however, when I am reaching into my closet for an outfit for the day.
Notice how the ragged hole in the knee of the jeans is echoed by a bare leather boot tongue surrounded by woolly edging.
Since dreadfulness is in the eye of the beholder, I would love to hear your thoughts and receive your vote.
