Botas del Baile Tribal

Manolo says, according to the Univision the pointy toed boots have begun to appear in Dallas!

Here below, for your edification, are the photos of the evolutionary stages that preceded the current fluorescence.

First the diversity of the color and the lengthening of the silhouette…

Then the toes achieve the exaggerated state and begin to turn up…


And, finally, you are trying to explain to the old men of the town why you wearing such ridiculous botas

This video makes the Manolo laugh, everytime he watches it.

P.S. Many thanks to the Chuntaritos blog, which chronicles the excesses of the chuntaro style.

    Backwater fashion is an oxymoron.

    For a moment, I thought a 60s monster B-movie had taken over the Manolo’s blog!

    It is shame Mexico doesn’t get more snow. You could go skiing in those boots.

    How do these guys dance in those boots? If they score a chick, how does a girl slow dance with them wearing those boots? The toe can go up their butts!
