Some boots don`t look pretty, more hilarious, it are such, who cover the knee and a part of the thighs.
I`m curious to know the motives.
But I think we are still at the surface! There is no explanation, why only women and only gays wear them. The overwhelmed majority of straight men don`t wear them and if they do it, they don`t wear
outside the pants. So you see only the "feet.part". (I myself had never wear boots)
