Sandal Boots and Ankle Cuff Sandals

(UPDATED: July 8, 2012)

Before I begin... yes. This blog entry is a re-do! I've re-done this blog to make it better in expressing the topic at hand. This blog entry concerns sandal boots. And if you want to shop for some sandal boots online, I'll work on a blog entry on my other blog where I can concentrate more on finding sandal boots for all of you without having to focus on a proper blog entry AND find sandal boots for you all here. That's why all of the shopping-specific content content I post gets moved to my other blog because I want my primary blog to basically be about certain topics, and I want my secondary blog to be where people can actually shop for content relevant to my blog. That is why I do this. Anyhow, my ideas on sandal boots will be discussed here.

(ADDED: January 31, 2012)
I've learned that some of these boot-like sandals are better referred to as ankle cuff sandals. This probably makes more sense, but the sandals still have boot-like appearances.


LATEST UPDATE(S)/REVISION(S):

JUL 8 2012 - added a ShopStyle widget

--- Sandal Boots at a Glance ---

Sandal boots are EXACTLY what you think they are. They are either sandals trying to be boots, boots with sandal characteristics, or some combination of the two. I've been vengeful for the most part about sandal boots. I hate how a designer has to provide a middle ground like this to combine the open-air comfort of sandals with the sexy and sleek appeal of boots. I've become a little more fond of them as of late, but many are complete atrocities. Why do you need to wear sandals AND boots at the same time? Boots are almost basically for cold weather while sandals are basically for warm weather. What kind of message are you trying to send with sandal boots? What, making these shoes available for those who are too lazy to make up their mind on whether to wear sandals or boots? It's best-of-both-worlds that can be a total fashion fail.

On another end, they do offer a nice diversion from the ubiquitous flip-flop/thong sandals. As many of those who know me on the Fashion Spot, different doesn't always mean better. Wear something that makes you comfortable and is stylish. Don't just go with something just because it's different. I'm starting to see more sandal boots being worn. More importantly, thong booties.

The style of sandals here are sandals with a boot-like appearance. These ankle-cuff sandals give an otherwise average pair of sandals a boot look.



--- Sandal Boots in Pictures ---

Sandal boots are exactly what they are- sandal-like boots, or boot-like sandals. Let's look at a few of them in pictures.

thong booties

sandal-like boots
^ from: shoes.com - High-heel sandals that think they are boots, or sandals trying to be boots? You decide.


Texas sandal cowboy boots
^ from: cactuscreekdaily.com - Texas-style sandal boots. Basic flip-flops hybrided with cowboy boots.

(ADDED: April 5, 2012) The company that made these cowboy sandal boots is a Fort Worth, TX-based company called Texas Sandal Boots. Unfortunately, the company's website is no longer operational. You can see more cowboy sandal boots from this blog post I got this picture from: "Texas Sandal Boots" - Cactus Creek Daily.
