Boots of such majesty, such grandeur!


From Wikipedia:
"The boots reportedly originated around 2010 in Matehuala in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí, located in North-Central Mexico. Following their creation, the trend has expanded to parts of the United States where large numbers of Matehualan migrants live, particularly in Dallas, Texas but also in Tennessee, Mississippi and Oklahoma.
"The pointy boots are made by elongating the toe of normal boots by as much as 5 feet (1.5 m), causing the toes to curl up toward the knees. For those boys or men who can't afford to pay a shoemaker to prepare the boots, they use garden hoses to make their own. The boots are then further modified according to the wearer's personal taste. Alterations incorporate paint, sequins and can go as far as adding flashing LED lights, disco balls and even mirrors."

Fashion is sometimes just indescribably stupid. This is one of those times.
