black combat boots

Black combat boots originated, unsurprisingly, in the military. First found on the feet of Roman soldiers, they were next found in England's civil war, the Napoleonic wars, and the ammunition boot which was used for WWI and WWII. A peek at Tumblr demonstrates countless styles of black combat boots, including vintage models, for both utility and style. Once the boot made the transition from military to fashion, it was quickly accepted by the rock and grunge crowds. Nowadays, it is no longer a fringe item, having been accepted by the hipster crowd. Wearers can rest assured that there are many ways to wear them. Paired with cute dresses, to denim, to leggings, they are a versatile and practical fashion item.
