LatinoFoxNews.com [who knew?] ^ | March 07, 2012 | staff reporter

Posted on 03/10/2012 9:54:15 AM PST by Daffynition

These Adidas's cowboyboot-tennis-shoe hybrids could be yours for just three hundred dollars.

Adidas says they'll "get you rodeo-ready with their hybrid cowboy-boot-meets-basketball-trainer style" and Latino blog, Remezcla describes them as the, "mexican hipster-est thing ever," but honestly, we're just confused.

Young man, there’s no need to feel down
I said young man, pick yourself off the ground
I said young man, ‘cause your in a new town
There’s no need to be unhappy...

It’s fun to stay at the P.R.C.A.
It’s fun to stay at the P.R.C.A
They have everything for young men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys...

I will now need to go into hiding for a long time.

I actually like that red converse high heel. Bit hey I can be a bit unpragmatic when it comes to fashion at times. One could have a bit of fun with those things one ;).

The thing about these boot/shoes is that they are not sexy like the red, high heeled Converse in a previous post. Sexy covers a lot of sins. Especially fashion ones. HAHA.

The person who invented mantyhose needs to be shot!

Pantyhose are for women. You can call them mantyhose all you want but they’re still pantyhose!

Heaven help us all.

Really? They look like they might be quite sturdy; how are they holding up?

Sigh.

I must be getting old. I never have cared for the ridiculous moon boots that pass for athletic shoes. I really don't even care for hiking boots that look like brown versions of athletic shoes. Give me my clunky, practically antique pair of Vasques any day, I actually like putting Bee Seal on them.

But cowboy boots, lol? They look stupid, so they'll probably sell to urban youth. I can just see it now, saggy pants and alien cowboy boots. Howdy, partner.

Just leave the work boots alone, please. They're the only substantial male footwear that still looks real anymore.

If a man wears pantyhose to keep warm or to prevent blood clots,that’s one thing. They can be used for practical purposes but not for making their legs look good.

I wear them to make my legs look good and they make me feel attractive and feminine. Even though I’ve been in Florida since ‘93 my legs are still pale and they don’t look good.

I’m mostly German so I burn easily and I’m very rarely in the sun.

Bras for men and ‘panties’ for men need to be outlawed,IMHO.

Men need to be men and women need to be women.

One good thing about mantyhose is that they are designed for a man’s anatomy but they still need to be worn for practical puroses.

That's bad. Nike already makes riding boots, but they're traditional riding boots. Once upon a time, somebody told me that Nike made Ariat (great Western riding and stable boots), but I've found no evidence to support that.

They are built exceptionally well, and unlike most other hiking boots that have a separate stitched heel cup with a seam down the back, these have a single piece of leather that wraps around the rear of the foot, with an external brace stitched to the outside...kind of a cool design, and I've no doubt the uppers will be quite durable.

I read a number of reviews for them before I purchased them, and so I wasn't blind to this going in, but as they are designed for trail running, the soles are made of a softer composite more like a running shoe than a conventional hiking boot, so while traction on wet and slippery surfaces is exceptionally high, I don't expect the tread to last as long as they might.

If you're really interested there's a pretty good review of them on YouTube:
