MATEHUALA, Mexico – The Mexican pointy boots that were said to have started by a certain “Cesar of Huizache” created a craze in Matehuala town in Mexico, international news reported.

As noted from several news sites, it was said that the idea of having a pointed boots started when a customer only known as “Cesar of Huizache” made an odd request to Dario Calderon, a shoemaker, to create him a pair of boots with pointy toes.

The pointy boots created by Calderon was seen being wore by Cesar of Huizache to Mesquit Rodeo nightclub, where he danced with a handkerchief covering his mouth and nose.

Since then, everyone wanted the pointy boots from little boys to teenagers. It was said that the girls would not dance with the boys if they were not wearing pointy boots.

One member of the Bellavista Dance Crew said in an interview by VBS.TV that the pointy boots fashion has been around for about a year.

It was said that it has overrun the rodeo dance floors and clubs. The pointy boots phenomenon has also spread to nearby cities and even taken by migrants across the border into the United States.

Here is a YouTube video uploaded by VBS.TV in search of the pointiest long-toed cowboy boots ever made in Matehuala, Mexico....

I always heard that the pointy boots were for crushing the roaches in the corners of the room.

Pointy toed shoes or boots were called “_____ Fence Climbers” when I was a kid. Seems that may still be appropriate.

I saw a guy with a pair of these monstrosities on at a Sam's Club in east Dallas yesterday. Caused quite a stir amongst the Great Unwashed out doing the weekend grocery shopping.

Can you imagine if a guy asked a woman to a slow dance with those those things on his feet! Now that would be a funny thing to watch.

Sharp Toed Boots are made for simply getting a shoe into a stirrup. Some Mexican boots have such a heel design they are no good for walking. See the Magnificent Seven and other things.

A coworker was in texas for the winter. She said that she was warned that the mexicans with curled up boots were cartel members. Told me that a month ago. Maybe its a boy named sue thing to toughen them up.

When it got to the young teen pulling his pants down and wagging his undie clad tush, it struck me as very gay.

I assume there isn’t a significant Dwarf population in that town. With these guys walking around, the local Proctologist would have a lot of business if there was.

It appears to me that a when a guy wears these things in the bedroom, it would make his wee wee appear a lot smaller. Just sayin...

These needle-like things would likely get a foot twisted in the attempt to mount, and dismounting would be an equal pain.

Yeah, they look like elves.

Imagine “kicking an ass” with this. Ay carumba! I wouldn’t be surprised if the next craze was to do something that looks like cock (rooster) fights with blades on the ends of those things, inside a cage.

Oh look, this one has dingle balls on the end of his boots!

Or is that just trash stuck on the ends?

How’d you keep a straight face? When I watched the video I thought it was an SNL skit. Haven’t seen em in Phoenix yet. I just hope the idjits don’t try to drive with them.

I admit, I started snickering. But then, so was everybody else. The strutting peacock wearing them couldn’t kill us all. Though judging from the look on his face he wanted to. Oh, the tender pride of the macho set.

What’s interesting to me is that in such a rural place in Mexico they’re listening to this particular kind of music.

...It was said that the girls would not dance with the boys if they were not wearing pointy boots..."

Yet another example of silly and utterly unimportant fads being driven by:

A) children, particularly girls, along with

B) Those with low IQ.

The fact that we spend even a small second on this topic demeans us all.

I say we nuke them from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
