It’s official. Wearing stylish boots for men guarantees you success and luck with the ladies.

Well, not exactly – but they certainly increase your chances.

According to a 2016 study conducted by GQ Magazine:

76% of women think that casual boots are the sexiest shoes a man can wear on a first date.

Which is all well and good – but that doesn’t mean a guy can just throw any pair of boots on and instantly look like the man of his woman’s dreams. If it were that easy, we’d all be celebrating, gents.

The tricky part of wearing boots is knowing when and where they are appropriate.

Do you wear them with a suit?

Are there any jeans to avoid when wearing boots?

Can you wear boots with shorts? (Simple – never in a million years.)

1. History Of Men’s Boots

12,000 – 15,000 BC

Who would have thought that we’d still be wearing clothes today that our ancestors were wearing over 10,000 years ago? That’s crazy!

Cave paintings prove the use of boots when hunting over 10,000 years ago.

According to historians, the oldest known depiction of boots can be seen in a cave painting from Spain. After careful inspection – historians concluded that a man could be seen wearing boots of skin, like a prehistoric version of the modern leather boot.

Even cave dwellers understood the importance of wearing stylish boots for men!

16th -18th Century

Pre-history is fascinating but let’s be honest – the boots worn by those long-gone ancestors were likely very different to what we wear today as modern men.

So let’s look at a slightly more modern form of history.

Within the 16th Century, men wore thigh-high boots of brown leather. These high boots of soft, perfumed leather were worn to meet upper stocks and gradually evolve into the early seventeenth century’s cavalier boot style. 

Untitled design 12 1

Widely recognized as the first military boot, the high-legged cavalier boots were worn by soldiers and became one of the first examples of a regimental uniform within Europe.

As fashion developed, so did the purpose of the cavalier boot. For 18th Century higher-class gentlemen, the sport of riding became a popular pass-time, and the high cavalier boot developed into a softer and closer fitting “jockey” style boot designed to be worn on horseback. 

19th Century

As the years progressed, the boot was more popular than ever.

In the 19th Century, Beau Brummel (considered the first ‘Dandy’) was known to wear “top boots and buckskins”.

As fashion shifted, so did the shape and design of the boot. The Wellington Boot – developed by the Duke of Wellington in 1817 – dominated menswear in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. 

Untitled design 29

Boots have been used for riding for hundreds of years – both in the military and in leisure sports.

The Blucher style of the boot had the most recognizable impact on what would become the modern boot. The basic laced-front style that The Blucher adopter would prove to be popular in modified forms to this day and has served as the basis of the modern high-top sneaker, hiking boot, and combat boot.

However, it was not until the late 19th Century that boots reached the peak of their popularity. A desire for greater comfort and practicality in footwear for both men and women became apparent and was aided by technological advances like sewing machines and vulcanized rubber.

The Wellington’s popularity died out in Britain but managed to survive in the United States – as the main contributor to the cowboy boot’s development.

Untitled design 30 1

The classic Cowboy Boot – badass and still relevant today.

Believed to have originated in Kansas – the Cowboy Boot is considered a combination of the Wellington and the Mexican vaqueros’ high heeled boots.

In the United States, the Hessian continued to be worn and can be seen in photographs of the outlaw “Billy the Kid” from the 1870s.

20th Century

In the first half of the 20th Century, boots returned to their functional role and were traditionally used within the military through 2 world wars. 

As 1950 hit,  boots then reemerged as an important element in ‘young fashion’. Trends arose within youth culture, and boots played a big role in self-expression. 

rubber soled boots chelsea boot e1599501850629 1

Suede Chelsea boots are a great casual option to be worn with dark jeans.

During this time, elastic side boots became trendy as modern versions of the nineteenth-century originals. However, to add a bit of 50’s flair, a higher heel and a pointed toe were added, worn with slim-fit trousers.

Sound familiar? They should – after all, these were the original Chelsea boots.


2. What Makes A Good Quality Boot?

What we’ve learned so far is that men have been wearing their boots in different ways for the last 15,000 years.

Good news, gents – history has been a big help for 21st-century cordwainers.

It’s now easier than ever to break down the features of a great stylish boot for men into 4 key categories:

  1. Sole
  2. Welt
  3. Materials
  4. Style

What’s more? In this ultimate guide, I’m going to break out each of these for you and explain exactly what you need to look for when buying your own pair of stylish men’s boots.


It’s a fact – the sole of a boot is just as important as the material the boot is made from.

Why? It’s simple – the shoe’s sole is the part that will take the most beating on a day to day basis.

Typically, leather or a synthetic material like rubber will be used to make a shoe’s sole. Both of these have their advantages and disadvantages – it’s really up to you to decide which style of the sole will best suit your own personal needs.

dress boots construction full infographic

Starting with the leather sole, the key advantages of this style are:

  • The comfort of a sole that will adapt to the way you walk.
  • The breathability that a leather sole offers – which is essential when considering the health of your feet.
  • A heightened elegance in appearance. Leather soles both look and feel classy to wear!
  • The fact that leather soles can be easier to resole than plastic or rubber soles.
  • Sustainability in the sense that a natural material should last a long time and can be replaced.
  • The variety offered by leather means that not all leather soles are the same as one another.

However, with all advantages come disadvantages. Leather soles are no different, with their disadvantages being:

  • Their slippery surface – new leather soles are smooth, meaning you can easily slip and slide. Note: Some leather-soled shoes are Butyl-Treated: Butyl is a chemical used in making rubber, which also adds stickiness to the shoe and improves grip.
  • A lack of durability – rubber is harder wearing than leather. It’s a fact, gents.
  • A lack of water resistance – unlike rubber soles, they do not have a waterproof barrier between your foot and the ground.
  • Lack of cushioning – Leather is nice and soft and offers some cushioning. However, natural materials aren’t thick, so the space between the ground and your foot is decreased when wearing leather soles.

Untitled design 31

A rubber sole is chunky and hard-wearing – suited to ‘outdoor’ boots.

The opposite of a leather sole is one that is made of synthetic materials like rubber. These have their own advantages:

  • A greater range of different qualities when compared to leather.
  • The ability to offer a more lightweight feel and higher levels of breathability.
  • Thanks to the ease of production, they’re also cheaper to purchase and thus cheaper to replace.
  • Unlike some leathers, rubber soles are washable and can be wiped clean without fear of chemical damage.

However, with this cheaper man-made design, there are also many disadvantages to synthetic soles:

  • A typically lower quality material means less longevity of use.
  • They can look ‘cheap’ in comparison to more expensive soles – devaluing your overall style.
  • Fabric soles are less likely to be waterproof and are certainly less durable than leather soles.
  • Faux leather, or PU leather, is not as durable as real leather. However, it will be more durable compared to bonded leather.


For those not in the know, a boot’s ‘welt’ is where the outsole attaches to the rest of the boot. All boots have a welt – however, there are a few different constructions that a cordwainer can choose from when making footwear.

Goodyear Welt:  

A Goodyear welt is a strip of leather, rubber, or plastic that runs along a shoe outsole’s perimeter. The basic construction involves stitching to secure the welt to the upper and a strip of pre-formed canvas that runs all around the bottom.

stylish boots for men

A boot that features a Goodyear Welt has many benefits. These include the ability to re-sole the shoe regularly, the molding nature of the cork filler (molds to the shape of your foot), and the increased ventilation allowing air into and out of your boot.

Goodyear Welts are relatively waterproof – but I wouldn’t go as far as to suggest swimming in them.

Storm Welt (Also called the Norweigen Welt)

The Storm Welt leverages a very similar construction to the Goodyear Welt. However, it utilizes a slightly different design that allows the welt to bend upwards and around the sole – allowing more of a seal to be created between the upper and midsole.

The main benefit of this being an enhancement in the design’s waterproofing. Again – would I suggest going for a swim in your boots? Absolutely not. However, a Storm Welted shoe could certainly handle a few deep puddles without much trouble.

Blake Stitch:

A Blake Stitch is a welt that utilizes the “single stitch” method.

stylish boots for men

Basically, the shoe’s upper is folded underneath the insole, and then stitching is applied with a single thread to connect the layers of the boot’s sole.

Typically, a Blake Stitch welt makes it harder to replace the boot’s sole when it wears out and becomes damaged. However, on the plus side, the lighter construction of a single stitch means a boot that utilizes it is far lighter and flexible in design. This makes the Blake Stitch ideal for slimmer boots intended to be worn in more formal settings.

A Glued Sole:

The simplest (and possible least favorable) of welt designs in the glued sole.

Regarding durability, a glued sole is not as strong as a Goodyear Welt, Blake Stitch, or Storm welt. Due to the welt’s simplicity, it is cheap to manufacture and is therefore used on cheaper boots and shoes.

What’s more – a glued sole can not be replaced. If the sole of a glued boot is damaged, then the boot is a right-off. I would always recommend ensuring your boots feature a strong, high-quality welting method rather than the cheaper glued option for longevity’s sake.


As with any item of clothing, stylish boots for men should be made of top quality materials. In the case of boots – that means sturdy, high-quality leather.

A good rule is to aim for the highest grade leather that you can afford. The higher the grade, the pricier the boot – however, genuine leather should be considered a minimum.

stylish boots for men

For those unsure of what I mean by Leather Grades, here’s a quick breakdown of the different levels of quality leather:

      • Full-grain – thick and rugged leather that hasn’t been sanded down or buffed
      • Top-grain – leather with a split layer with imperfections buffed away
      • Genuine – leather that has had an artificial grain (or texture) applied to its surface
      • Bonded – a mixture of leather scraps bonded together with synthetic materials

Unless you really have to, I’d advise you never to opt for synthetic leather. Real leather is tougher and will last longer if properly cared for. Synthetic leather will also reduce your boot’s ability to breath – trapping moisture between your foot and the surrounding boot.

It’s also vital to remember that any leather, regardless of quality or grade, requires quite specific care to ensure your boots’ longevity. To get the most out of your leather boots, I would advise that you:

      • Clean your boots after every use.
      • Polish the leather every week.
      • Condition the leather every 10 days.

stylish boots for men

A good polish and brush are essential for boot maintenance.

Doing this will make the leather last longer and stay strong. Remember that leather is skin! What happens to unmoisturized and uncared for skin? It cracks and wrinkles, leaving an old and worn-out aesthetic. The same thing will happen to leather boots, gents – so keep up a regular ‘boot care’ routine just as you would a regular skincare routine.


Guys, it doesn’t matter if your boots are the highest quality shoes in the world – if they’re ugly and lacking in style, then they just aren’t gonna make the cut.

I would advise you to avoid ‘fad’ styles and stick to the timeless classics to guarantee this. Patent Leather Cuban Heels might have looked great in the 70s, but they’re not exactly the sort of boot a man could wear with masculinity in the 21st century.

Untitled design 2 1

No gents, that’s not a women’s boot. Guys actually wore these in the 70s.

Instead – go for the tried and tested classics.

Military lace-ups or Chelsea boots are great timeless options. Both of these boots can be worn casually and dressed up and look just as stylish now as they did 20, 30, or even 40 years ago.

On a practical level, it’s also important that stylish boots can be worn all year round. After all, what’s the use in spending your hard-earned cash on boots that can only be worn during a few months of the year?

With that in mind, there are a few things you should try to avoid when buying a pair of stylish boots for men.

  • Fur-lined boots are great for colder weather but useless in the summer months. If a boot has fur lining the inside of the shoe, there’s no way that it can be worn in hot weather. Imagine the foot sweat, gents – no one wants their feet to stink on a first date.
  • Equally, thinner materials like suede won’t work in wet and cold weather.

My advice would be to opt for an evergreen boot – made from waterproof leather without any material lining the inside. A boot like this will be thin enough to wear in the summer while also protective enough to keep your feet warm and dry when the temperatures drop.

3. How Do You Style Men’s Boots?

With A Suit And Tie

First and foremost – when wearing boots with a suit, avoid ‘black tie’ suits. Tuxedo and black tie events strictly call for formal shoes as boots look too casual for super formal events.

At the end of the day, gents – you will look plain weird wearing boots with a tux. Instead, avoid boots altogether and opt for black oxford shoes.

When wearing boots to work – ensure they are well polished and shiny. This will complement the clean-cut look of suit pants. After all, well-polished shoes look professional and demonstrate to your employer that you put effort into crafting an appropriate appearance for work.

Untitled design 9

Thursday Boot’s Cavalier range goes great with suits and smart-casual outfits.

As with any shoe – always ensure suit pants are the correct length. Ankle-swingers look ridiculous when wearing boots as they would when wearing shoes.

Bulky soles and thicker-looking boots will heavily contrast the tailored look of a suit. This is a bad thing – your outfit will look mismatched and your stylish boots for men won’t look all that stylish anymore!

As a good rule of thumb, always opt for leather when wearing boots with a suit. Suede boots are fine for everyday wear but are a bit too casual for a suit.

With Smart-Casual Outfits

For smart casual – boots best compliment a pair of plain dark jeans.

When wearing jeans with a blazer and shirt, boots will help balance the outfit, whereas trainers will make it look too formal.

Equally, you should never wear dress shoes with jeans as this will do the opposite and make your outfit too formal looking.  Boots provide a good alternative to this.

A good rule is that jeans should be straight/slim-straight cut when wearing boots. Baggy jeans look too informal for smart-casual events, whereas skinny jeans never look good on a man (ever!).

stylish boots for men

Brown Chelsea boots are a great dress-down alternative to leather boots.

Slimmer straight cut jeans compliment boots as they have a similar cut to suit pants but look less formal.

A smart casual dress code can call for either leather or suede boots. Leather is a good option for black/grey jeans (this is simply because darker colors suit the leather’s shine). In contrast, Suede is good for blue jeans (mid-blue, not light blue) as suede is a ‘fresher’ looking material.

Finally, both leather and suede boots can be worn with chinos. This will give a more formal aesthetic over jeans as chinos are a kind of step-up in formality. When thinking chinos, the best boots to wear are chukka boots due to their heightened formality.

Lace-ups are more suited to jeans as they give off a slightly more casual aesthetic.

With Weekend-Casual Outfits

For the most part, lace-up boots are great weekend wear. They are robust and hard-wearing, which makes them great for the outdoors.

We all know what a weekend trip with the kids can be like – so if they get muddy, you’ll be glad to know it won’t ruin them. In fact, some people like the look of ‘worn’ boots that show a bit of wear and tear.

If adventuring solo or with the kids is your thing, lace-ups with a thicker sole should be your go-to boot.

The thicker soles will manage mud and harsh ground well and provide you with the necessary traction.  Typically, the laces travel all the way up the boot which provides better security while on the foot.

Untitled design 3 2

The Captain by Thursday Boots is a great option to wear with dark blue jeans.

For the best style, pair your lace-up boots with lighter jeans for a great ‘country’ look.

In this instance, it’s best to opt for straight-leg jeans. A straight cut is still stylish without being too formal.

It’s also important to note that lighter color jeans are the least formal jean style (think light and washed out blues).

Wearing lace-up boots with light jeans is a timeless look and is a great way to wear stylish boots for men.


4. What Are The Different Boot Styles?

Before we get into individual styles, let me introduce you to the official RMRS Formality Scale.

When we think of boots, we can categorize them within one of the three formality indicators:

  1. Casual Boots – can be worn with jeans, chinos, and trousers.
  2. Business Casual – boots that are more suited to a relaxed working environment where a ‘business’ dress code isn’t required.
  3. Dress Boots – boots more appropriate in offices where a suit and tie are required.

Unfortunately, buying a pair of stylish boots for men that can adapt to all three levels of formality is impossible. As such, you guys must have a great understanding of lots of different styles so you can make a more informed decision when it comes to purchasing stylish boots for men.

Untitled design 13 1With that in mind, here’s the RMRS definitive list of boot styles:

  • Particularly good for darker jeans – avoid wearing lighter jeans.
  • Less formal than a monk strap boot, so better for smart casual.

3 Reasons Why Sarah Geronimo Deserves the Billboard Global Force Award

Make way for ‘Popstar Royalty’ Sarah Geronimo—Billboard’s first Filipina Women in Music Honoree.

A young contestant on a talent show two decades ago, Sarah Geronimo is now a Philippine music icon, making a name for herself in both OPM and in the global scene. With her unmatched versatility, tireless dedication, and enduring influence in shaping the music industry both in the country and beyond—Sarah Geronimo now makes history as the first Filipina to be honored with the Global Force award at the Billboard’s Women in Music annual awards show.

Sarah Geronimo makes history as the first Filipina Women in Music Honoree by Billboard

The award revolutionizes women in today’s sound, and this marks a significant turning point in the history of Filipina representation on the international stage. The recognition of Geronimo’s brilliant career and immense impact reinforces her as a trailblazer in providing OPM and Filipina artists a broader appreciation worldwide. Because of this, here are three reasons why she deserves the award:

1. Geronimo is committed to her unparalleled artistry.

She cares about her craft and growth as an artist—and it shows. Her powerhouse voice and heartfelt lyrics resonate with the Filipino crowd, and she can show off her vocal prowess performing Celine Dion or Whitney Houston or singing along to her dance hits Kilometro and Tala with a stability only veteran and exceptional artists such as herself could achieve. Over the years, her own style and sound have diversified and transformed from diva ballads to an eclectic mix of soul, dance, R&B, and rock. With experimentation and the embrace of various genres, Geronimo isn’t afraid to tread unfamiliar waters and deliver something new and interesting with a vehement attitude and intensity—and of course, love for her craft.

2. She commands the stage like no other.

Geronimo’s creativity and genius prowess stands out in electrifying and unforgettable performances with dance choreography and soulful vocals. At her sold-out 20th anniversary concert just last year, she enthralled the audience by performing new choreography for her viral hit Tala, and a revitalized rendition of her earlier hits, Sa Iyo. She also debuted My Mind, an upbeat collaboration with Billy Crawford, and sang Healing, an emotionally-charged piece written by KZ Tandingan. Geronimo curated a captivating setlist of her iconic hits, even treating fans with a mesmerizing medley of songs from the movies she starred in: Paano Ba Magmahal, Maybe This Time, and Fallin’, and A Very Special Love. With a repertoire of over 40 songs, the three and a half-hour concert culminates in a spectacular dance performance for an encore. In every performance and show, Geronimo gives her audience 110%, captivating them with her unmatched talent and further establishing her status as a true icon in OPM.

3. She is authentic in her music and public persona.

As a public figure, Geronimo continues to command the most loyal of fans and supporters in her music and personality, and the result? Sold-out shows at a time when other foreign acts are dominating the country’s biggest venues.

Taking complete ownership of her art is a commitment she strives to uphold. When she started as a recording artist, Geronimo shared that she had no hand in the creative process. Nevertheless, she gave life to every lyric and note—until she could pick the songs for her own albums and tell her own story. Now, in every project, Geronimo’s voice, choices, narrative, and style shines in her work and her art.
