Is There a New Trend in Buying Steel Toed Boots?

NewsID:165    Datetime:2010-12-29

While it used to be only employees of companies with a lot of manual labor would buy steel toed work boots, slowly but surely it is becoming a fashion accessory in a variety of different subcultures.

The punk and gothic subcultures have begun to buy steel toed work boots as well, as both subcultures (whose original fashion purpose was to break with conformity) have started to wear the work boots regularly with their outfits.

They do so for two reasons:

The shoes are rugged. You only need to buy steel toed work boots once and you will likely have shoes you can wear for a long, long time.
The shoes resemble military apparel, and give an impression of toughness even beyond their actual rugged exterior.
Though more common among men than women, many non-construction individuals have been purchasing steel toed work boots of late for those very reasons. The military persona that goes well with some of the punk outfits and the way that it appears to represent non-conformity make the work boots an ideal way to give an appearance of strength and individuality.

Over time, however, that individuality is likely to be lost as all new trends start to become mainstream. Within the next decade, one can expect that more and more non-gothic/punk individuals will start to buy steel toed work boots as well as the shoes themselves start to become more popular with the generic fashion world. Considering the rising costs of a number of different expenses in life, a shoe that can last for several years is appealing to far more people now than it was 10 years ago, and soon it would not be a surprise if it steel toed shoes started to become a national fashion trend.
