5 Reasons Why Boots Make You More Attractive! [0:00:00]
So, there’s this Hollywood story of actor Russell Crowe hanging out with producer Jerry
Bruckheimer at a party. They’re doing pretty well. Russell has got women all over him until he
takes off his boots, loses three inches of height and immediately Jerry’s like, “Get
your boots back on. Man, you’re messing up your image.” Is the story true? I don’t know. But, what I will attest to is the power of
boots. In today’s video, gents, why boots make
you more attractive and why every man needs a pair in his wardrobe.

Reason number one that every man needs a pair of boots in his wardrobe, women absolutely
love boots. I’m supporting this with a 2016 study at
a GQ Magazine. They actually did in-depth interviews with
over two hundred women asking them what they look for in a man, specific details when it
comes to style and grooming. 76% of women said they wanted to see a man
wear casual boots on a first date. What does that tell you? Guys, don’t – don’t you shoot yourself
the foot. Wear the casual boots, women absolutely love
them. So, we’ve established that women like boots,
but why do they like boots? Guys, it comes down to association and status. Let’s look at history. Five hundred years back, military officers. Two hundred years back, if you were a foot
soldier you couldn’t afford boots. You can barely afford shoes. Boots were always reserve for officers, men
of status men of power. Even now modern days, we see a guy he’s
going to be an explorer, we see a guy that’s joining the military, what are they wearing? Boots.

And now, let’s think about rock stars. If you can imagine a rock star, he’s up
on stage, he is breaking rules, he is commanding respect. What is he wearing? He’s probably – he’s not going to be
wearing dress shoes. I like dress shoes, but he is going to be
wearing a pair of boots. Guys, it’s all about setting yourself apart,
it’s all about status. Now, gentlemen, all the boots you’re seeing
in today’s video, brought to you by Thursday Boots, the paid sponsor of today’s video. And, for over two years, I’ve been wearing
and loving their boots. Guys, these are quality boots at an affordable
price. These are using a Goodyear welt. The advantage of a Goodyear Welt is it’s
the most water-resistant type of build that you can get and you want them for boots. So, not only is it a quality built, but it
protects me from the elements. 100% of the leather used by Thursday Boots
is sourced from Tier 1 USA cattle. What this means is that you’re getting an
amazing upper that is going to get better over time.

They are going to develop unique patinas that’s
going to reflect your daily adventures. When you look at the insole right here, they
use a cork lining. What this means it’s kind of like a memory
foam mattress. It starts to conform to your foot that’s
why these are so comfortable. Go check out all the different options they
got for men from the different styles from chukka to actually the dress boots, the more
the exploration boots. If you’re looking at the different uppers
that they’ve got for you from suede to regular dark brown to a lighter brown like this made
with a Horween Leather out of Chicago. Amazing company, guys. I’m linking to Thursday Boots down in the
description. Great boots at an amazing price. Go check them out. The next reason why every man needs a pair
of boots in this wardrobe, gentlemen, it’s all about the heel. It’s all about adding height. This pair of boots right here easily going
to add two inches to your height. Women, again, like in general taller men.

Even other men look to taller men. They’ve done these studies of like the top
CEOs of companies and taller men seem to dominate. Now, if you’re shorter, it is a lost cause. Of course not, there are many tricks and tips
out there. I’ve got entire videos on that. But, starting it off with a pair of boots,
guys, that’s going to help especially find a pair of boots maybe with three inches, two
inches is definitely going to help go from 5’5” to 5’7”. Boom! There you go. Next up, let’s talk about size. Big shoes mean a big heart, right? Isn’t that how it goes? But, here’s – look at this right here. Okay. So, which one is bigger? Of course this shoe right here is bigger,
but what you’re doing is you’re looking to make your extremities a bit larger in general
especially during the fall, the winter, and the spring we’re starting to layer, bring
on other pieces and that can throw off their proportions especially if you’re oftentimes
wearing casual clothing which is most men out there.

So, you wear boots like this, all of a sudden
they add just a bit also in the length, in the overall size. It’s not clunky if you get the right style. And you get the right style a really nice
rugged look right in there and all of a sudden it builds up your feet, it makes you look
more masculine. So, the next reason why every man needs a
pair of leather boots in his wardrobe, gentlemen, is because leather evokes a feeling of masculinity. Basically, when you wear leather you come
off as stronger. Now, what’s this based off? A 2001 study out of the school of art and
that was over at Liverpool John Moores University, what they found is that certain fabrics certain
materials evoke feelings. Tweed made you relax. Whenever they put denim in front of people,
it made them feel like they were more energetic.

And, leather, when it comes down to leather,
it’s all about strength and masculinity. And bonus reason why every man needs a good
pair of boots because boots are functional. You get that rubber sole right here, you get
something that covers up your ankles with a good strong leather. You’ve got something that you can walk to
the snow the sleet the rain, not worry about damaging the boots as long as you take care
of the boots, but they’re going to keep water off of your feet and they’re going
to give you a good grip. Guys, boots are functional, one of my favorite
pieces of menswear that a man can own. [0:05:05]
Now, you’re probably wondering, Antonio, how do I find a great pair of boots? What exactly do I look for in the construction
of boots? Guys, I’ve got you covered. Check out this video right here. I’m going to link to it down in the description
of this video.

But, in this video right here, I go into the
details of the build, what you need to identify, what you need to look for, whatever brand
you may buy. But, I do recommend checking out Thursday
Boots. Again, I’m linking to Thursday down in the
description. I absolutely love this company. Like I said everything about the construction
is awesome. I know the founders. I’ve spent time with them in New York. Absolutely love what this company is doing,
so check them out, guys. I’m linking to Thursday down in the description. [Bleeping sound]
So, quick fact about the chukka boot. During World War II, British soldiers actually
commissioned these to be made up in Northern Africa whenever they were fighting [Rommel]
because they wanted a boot that would be more functional in the desert. They worked with Egyptian cobblers who apparently
made quite a few of these boots, they absolutely love them and then they started to make their
way into men’s wardrobe.

So, you should know this, a little bit of
military history with the chukka boot. That’s it. Take care. I’ll see you in the next video. [0:06:06] End of Audio.
