Buckled moto boots were all over the Fall 2013 runways with models stomping down the catwalk at Saint Laurent, Chloe and more. Now, designers like Kurt Geiger and Jeffrey Campbell are cashing in on the look, churning out boots lined with oversized buckles, studs and spikes.
It’s tempting to indulge in the tough luxe trend but first, you must recognize that not every boot is created equal. The number of buckles on a boot is directly proportional to how much of a badass you are. There are boots with a sole buckle on each side for the tame girl who follows all the rules, and boots covered with buckles, zippers and studs for the wild child who throws caution to the wind.
Check out our buckled moto boot meter to determine where you fall, and which boots best fit your badass (or lack thereof) personality.
