Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
About Open Toe:
Open toe describes a shoe, especially a sandal, which is not closed at the front, allowing the toes to be seen. Some open toe styles, such as peep toe pumps, have an enclosed vamp with a small opening at the toe, which make them more suitable for formal wear during warmer weather.
