In previous trends posts, I've mentioned my affinity for rugged boots and fringe. So naturally, I'm excited to see Justin Roper Boots coming into style. They have a similar aesthetic to Dr. Martens, but have a less chunky sole and fun fringe across the toe.
Justin boots have been around a long time and are the shoe of choice for cowboys and cowgirls. A lot of vintage boutiques will sell used pairs as "rare one-of-a-kind vintage lace-up boots", but they're actually quite easy to find. At justinbootstore.com you can buy them direct from the manufacturer for $89 to $113 a pair. The shoes are available in three colors on the website, but if you search on eBay or even Google, you can find a wider array of choices.
