Perhaps you’ve seen the outrageously long pointy boots that swept over Northern Mexico and parts of the U.S in 2011. The trend started in Matehuala, a city a few hours North of Mexico City by an unknown man with a strange request. For about $30 these boots were elongated a few feet long, curling up past someones knees.
Individuals started getting very creative with these boots adding: strobe lights, belt buckles, glitter, and mirrors. This fad came with wearing skinny jeans and matching shirts to compete in weekly dance-offs at nightclubs for cash prizes. They dance to “tribal” music, a mix of Pre-Columbian and African sounds mixed with fast beats.
Just like any fad these boots are now being replaced by different versions, however, these long pointy boots can still be purchased at http://mexicanpointyboots.biz/.
