Fashionable boots for women
may have all the variations seen in other women's shoes:
tapered or spike
soles, pointed toes,
zipper closures, etc. Specialty
boots have been designed for many different types of sport,
particularly football or soccer,
riding, skiing and snowboarding,
Boots have their own devotees among shoe
fetishists and foot fetishists.
Tall boots, such as those designed for horseback riding,
may have a tab, loop or handle at the top known as a bootstrap,
allowing one to use fingers or a tool to provide better
leverage in getting the boots on. A German legend about
a boy lifting himself up by his bootstraps into the air,
allowing him to fly, has led to the word's metaphorical
use in many different contexts; see
Boots, particularly those worn as protective footwear
by workers (work boots), have a reputation for being as
hard-wearing as their owners, hence the expression "tough
as old boots".
A long established clich of
anglers, especially those who are inexperienced or angling
in waters known to be poor for fish, is that of the "old
boot", caught in place of the expected fish. This can
be seen in many cartoons, parodies, etc., and is usually
depicted dripping with weeds and with part of the
sole detached, giving the
impression of an open mouth.
