Shoes were always a necessity and will always be a necessity, but not for the same reason. In the past, shoes were made in order to keep a person's feet warm and protected the feet from sharp objects on the ground. But when people realized that shoes were a great way to change the look of a person, they started being used for fashion purposes. Shoes are a great way to heighten the design of any outfit and are now considered the most important component of any person's wardrobe.
There have been a lot of types of shoes made in the past, and I mean a lot, but very few shoes have managed to stay in fashion for period of more than ten years. This is all because of the changing trends in the fashion industry and also for other reasons.
One of the shoes that have managed to stay around for more than a century now is the Engineer Boot. Also known as motorcycle boots, engineer boots were made during the late 1800's and was used by soldiers during the American Civil War and also during the World War. Engineer boots became a great pair of boots for motorcycle riders later on during the 50's and 60's. They had a mean look and were very classy looking as well thanks to the thick black leather which was used to make them.
Engineering boots are boots that are made out of thick black leather and have a square toed bottom. They have four, non-adjustable straps around the ankle that are held in place by two metal rings. The boots even have straps at the end of the shoe shaft that help with the fit of the shoe. These boots were used by motor cycle riders to protect their legs from the heat of the bikes exhaust pipe and the engine block. The shoes also protected the rider's legs in the event of an accident, thanks to the thick leather used to make the shoes.
