Hello everyone,

I have seen alot of teams using Combat Boots at competition for Hip hop. And now my Hip HOp Teacher wants them lol

Anyone use them ?
Where do I get them ?
Please tell me they are not the Steve Madden ones that are $250.

Thanks for your help
Kiki

If you want the REAL THING I would suggest you hit your local army-navy surplus store or uniform workgear store. Either that, or places like Walmart would probably have them.

As someone who HAD to dance in anything on her feet, I've danced when I had my boots on.

Some tips:

1. take as much time as you need to make sure that the boots are comfortable.

2. I'm sure you already know this, but go visit the store near the end of the day when your feet are probably going to be the most swollen.

3. Wear medium to heavy thick socks around the feet. Socks that can BREATHE.

4. Expect to take care of the boots, e.g. if they're leather they'll probably need some work done on them.

5. I would URGE you NOT to buy them online. Foot fitting can be difficult. As one shoe shop said to me, "bring your feet in here."

6. make sure you know what the return policy of the various stores is.

They are "in" now and are at local shoe stores, Target,department etc for $25- $40. The real ones at the Army-Navy store in my area are $60. You can buy sequin combat boot on Just For Kix

In the UK we have "Shoe Zone" which has pretty cheap shoes and when we needed combat boots, they happened to have them in at the time at about £12 a pair. Have you got a shop like that, or a sort of discount show warehouse place?

I love mine. And I wear them out too with leggings. Mine are Steve Madden's but they weren't $250. I got them at Dillard's and I think they were $130?

But worth every penny, and I don't spend a lot of money on stuff like that. Love them
