The Saga Of Over-The-Top Mexican Boots

An interesting and short documentary tries to help us understand the growing fashion of these ridiculously long boots we first told you about in November. The short video takes us to Matehuala, San Luis Potosí, México where the long, pointy botas craze is said to have started.

Some interesting facts from the documentary include that the botas craze is paired with the rise of tribal music in Mexico, that dancing with the pointy boots goes well with the music. Also, the skinny jeans-long boots fashion statement is mean to emphasize the length of the boots, which are homemade by the young boys themselves using plastic hoses and other available materials.

The boots come in a variety of colors and textures — the video features glitter and plaid, for example — and seem to make the young men wearing them feel particularly studly. One guy claims to have made boots about 7 feet long, which is funny, considering how these guys can barely walk with the boots that are smaller than that. It’s worth watching, check it out and let us know what you think.
