Those of you who know me in the real world are probably well-aware that I’m not exactly the most fashionable guy.
When it comes to my “style” I keep it pretty simple. I’ve got a solid rotation of amusing t-shirts, roughly four pairs of jeans—all the same make and model of Wranglers—in varying shades of blue, and a bunch of different hats for each season.
Clearly I’m not a big-time fashionista in any sense of the word.
That having been said, I think I’m officially ahead of the curve on a major fashion trend coming your way…walking boots.
That’s right, walking boots.
I’ve seen people all over Cambridge wearing walking boots like crazy. It has been going on ever since all of the college students rolled back into town from Spring Break. I think that means it is hot in the islands and Mexico right now and is about to hit the states like a freakin’ tidal wave!
Sure, sure…it could just mean that a bunch of students made horrible, drunken decisions while they were away on Spring Break and that they’re legitimately all gimped up with walking boots.
I mean, it isn’t out of the realm of possibility that a bunch of 20-year-olds all jacked up on tequila and Busch Light thought it was a great idea to leap from their hotel room balcony into the pool or try to prove how bad-ass they were by roundhouse kicking a tiki statue in the face or something, but I’m pretty sure this is a fashion statement all the way.
I mean, I’ve seen literally dozens of people sporting the walking boot look in the past couple of weeks. There’s certainly no way that many college kids could be that dumb on Spring Break. Right?!
Anyway, dumb kids notwithstanding, this is all about fashion.
Everyone knows that you’re either ahead of a style or you’re behind it, I’m not missing the boat on this one and neither should you. I recommend everyone rushes out and gets one—or maybe two, I’ve seen that quite a few times as well—of these suckers right away.
And remember, you heard it here first…walking boots are the new black.
