Boots are protective footgear, made of leather, rubber or other materials that cove the foot and part or all of the leg. They keep one dry in rain or snow. Some are worn as a fashion statement.

About Boots

A boot is a type of footwear and a specific type of shoe. Most boots mainly cover the foot and the ankle and extend up the leg, sometimes as far as the knee or even the hip. Most boots have a heel that is clearly distinguishable from the rest of the sole, even if the two are made of one piece. Traditionally made of leather or rubber, modern boots are made from a variety of materials. Boots are worn both for their functionality _ protecting the foot and leg from water, snow, mud or hazards or providing additional ankle support for strenuous activities _ and for reasons of style and fashion. High-top athletic shoes are generally not considered boots, even though they do cover the ankle, primarily due to the absence of a distinct heel.
