Military remains in fashion for both men and women in Autumn/Winter 2010-11, with inspiration drawn from the 1940s and 50s military. A particularly popular military-themed trend is the army and air force influenced combat boot for men’s fashion. These shoes come in a variety of styles, from military to motorcycle boots, that can match any sense of style.
Re-introduced by Christopher Bailey’s Burberry Autumn collection in 2010, the trend of the combat boot remains chunky and utilitarian essential for the colder seasons.
Perfect with this season’s chunky knits, checked flannel shirts or a pair of Diesel jeans, this timeless rustic vintage style can pretty much be worn to any occasion. As shown below, actor Hayden Christensen was recently spotted in Los Angeles wearing a pair of military side zip boots that are right on trend.
This look can easily be dressed up or down and incorporated into many different styles. Pair a sleek military-style jacket with dark jeans and a sweater for an outfit that is simple and nostalgic, yet still masculine.
