Steampunk fashion combines the elements of the Victorian time period with aspects of science fiction or fantasy. The Steampunk way of dress is becoming increasingly popular, with both men and women alike sporting edgy garments such as corsets, period costumes, and accessories. Another great way to accessorize any Steampunk costume is to add a great pair of Steampunk boots for men and women.
Steampunk Boots for Women
Steampunk boots for women are typically black or brown in color. Most, but not all, styles have high heels and laces. Steampunk boots may also have buckles in addition to the laces, or other decorative embellishments. Boots are usually made of leather, suede, or vinyl materials, and tend to come up rather high on the calf of the leg. Some of the steampunk boots for women resemble something from the Victorian era, with a somewhat Gothic edge to them.

Steampunk Boots for Men
Steampunk boots for men offer the same great style, but with a few differences. Most men’s boots are the characteristic black or brown color, and are made from leather or leather-like materials. The men’s Steampunk footwear tends to have more of a vintage military style, resembling combat boots. Men’s boots tend to have less lacing than women’s boots and focus more on buckles or other accents such as chains. Many Steampunk boots for men have a folded-down portion of the boot, making them look like pirate boots or what may be referred to as a “Captain Jack” style. Some boots feature an antique finish to make them look more authentically vintage.
