When October rolls around, most people think of fall starting or that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. But there are some music junkies out that live for October, or should we say Rocktober. Yes, it IS a real thing. I mean, if it has it’s own Urban Dictionary definition, it’s obviously legit. If you’re curious as to what UD says, Rocktober is “An informal celebration of rock music taking place every year in the month of October.” And how do you know if your a Rocktober fan? When people describe you as “a beer-drinking, mulleted and/or older rock aficionado,” that’s how.
But instead of chugging beer or getting a terrible hair cut, we thought that you should celebrate with a new pair of black boots, even if you don’t jam on the air guitar to Aerosmith on a daily basis. There are tall ones and short ones, knee-highs and booties. But what they all have in common is some crazy good hardware. We’re talking studs, buckles, zippers and more. We found the best black ones so you can show up to your next rock concert in style. Just stick your tongue out (not Miley style), throw in some hand bangs, and you’ll fit right in.
