Boot fetishism is a sexual fetish focused on boots. Boots have become the object of sexual attraction amounting to fetishism for some people and they have become a standard accessory in BDSM scenes (where leather, latex and PVC boots are favoured) and a fashion accessory in music videos. Boots are seen as perhaps the most fetishistic of all footwear and boots are the most popular fetish clothing attire.
One of the earliest descriptions of boots as a fetishistic object can be found in Émile Zola's 1868 novel Thérèse Raquin. Actual boot fetishism is described in the diaries of 19th century British woman Hannah Cullwick, of which parts have been published.
Boots were used by Stanley Rachman as a subject for research on conditioning as a cause for fetishism in the 1960s, making men sexually aroused by seeing pictures of boots, but the results have been put into question later, as boots already were very much en vogue for sexually attractive women at the time.
Unlike shoes, boot styles have often appeared as street wear before they inspire fashion designers. Boots are usually seen as a sign of empowerment for the wearer, especially when worn by women. This may be a reason for the connection to BDSM, where boots usually are seen as a statement of dominance. So-called boot worship became a common subcultural practice among sadomasochists and related fetishists in the early 20th century.
High heeled boots help to elongate the calf, creating a longer legged appearance which is generally considered to be more sexually attractive. The length of the boot shafts also adds to this impression. Boots have been displayed in magazines such as Leg Show, and there are also magazines and websites aimed directly at this fetish.
Boot fetishism may be accompanied by a fetish for the material from which it is made, such as leather, rubber, or latex. Boot fetishism is often targeted at fashion boots and riding boots but there are also boots expressly made for fetish purposes, such as ballet boots and some forms of thigh-high boots.
There is also a very prominent subsection of mostly gay men who fetishize men's boots, with \"boot worship\" being a common practice in this group, to the point where there is a yearly contest to see who is the best bootblack. The types of boots favored by men differ from those worn by women, with men typically preferring more sturdy, rugged boots, such as combat boots, rigger boots, jump boots, motorcycle boots, or riding boots.
Hsu and J. Michael Bailey (2019) argue that there is little evidence for \"sexual conditioning\" explanations of boot fetishism, since only a small minority of men who have seen attractive women in boots develop boot fetishes. They also say that \"boot fetishes would not occur in a world without boots, and in a world where men and women switched boots, different patterns of fetishes would likely develop\". They argue that random developmental processes which are still poorly understood make some men more prone to developing paraphilias and fetishes.
The television series The Avengers, which ran in the 1960s, often featured fetishistic clothing, with Emma Peel, played by Diana Rigg, wearing thigh-high boots as a characteristic sign of her as a sexy and strong woman. Patrick Macnee and Rigg's predecessor Honor Blackman (as Cathy Gale) released a 45 RPM single in 1964 entitled \"Kinky Boots\".

A competitive skater can skate anywhere from 3 days a week to twice a day. Falls, poorly-fitted skating boots, and repeating the same motions again and again without enough time for recovery are some of the common reasons for injury. The good news: many figure skating injuries are preventable.
Blisters and calluses. Hardened skin and painful, fluid-filled bumps can form from friction. Pressure points may be caused by improperly fitted skates or boots laced too tightly. Using donut-shaped padding can help in irritated areas.
Ankle sprain. Sudden twisting or rolling the ankle can overstretch the ligaments, tough bands of connective tissue that keep the joint together. To help avoid a sprained ankle, make sure boots have enough upper support and are not worn out. Ankle strengthening, balance exercises, and allowing time for previous ankle sprains to heal lower the risk of re-injury.
Bunions. A painful bump may form at the base of the big toe as the bones change position from wearing tight boots. Bunions at the base of the \"baby\" (outside) toe are called \"bunionettes.\" According to research by the U.S. Figure Skating Boot and Blades Subcommittee, roughly 57% of skaters develop bunions. The bony bump can get bigger and begin to crowd the smaller toes. Make sure boots have good arch support and aren't too narrow, especially in the toe area.
\"Pump Bump.\" Haglund's deformity, often called \"pump bump,\" affects nearly half (49%) of figure skaters at some point. It's often caused by repeated irritation from the heel slipping and rubbing against the back of the boot when boots that are too wide in back. Check the fit and add padding if needed.
Hammertoes. When the foot moves around too much inside the boot, skaters may naturally curl their toes to keep from slipping. Around 18% of figure skaters develop hammertoes, which can cause pain, swelling and a claw-like appearance of the toe. Prevention includes making sure boots are not too big or too wide.
Malleolar bursitis (swelling at the inner part of the ankle bone). Stretch out boots at the sides and protect the ankles with silicon or gel sleeves. Use donut-shaped padding around the bony part of the ankle, but not directly over it.
Tendonitis. Tendons are the tough bands that attach muscle to bones. They may become irritated in 20% of figure skaters at some point, causing tendonitis. The most common type is Achilles tendonitis (tendon at the back of the ankle/heel). Prevention includes regular calf stretching, strengthening exercises, avoiding overly stiff boots, and limiting jumps.
Spondylolysis. A recent study found 30% of adolescent athletes with low back pain have spondylolysis, a bony stress injury of the lumbar spine. A number of factors may contribute to spondylolysis in skaters, including decreased foot flexibility from stiffer boots (popular for extra support during advanced twirls and jumps), which can lead to increased arching of the back to help maintain balance. This, along with repetitive high-impact landings, may cause the injury. Prevention includes proper training along with strengthening exercises for the core and lower back.
Make sure your skates fit properly and are broken in. When boots are too stiff, your motion is limited. This puts stress on the ankle, knee, hip, and back. Resist the urge to buy skates a \"little too big\" to allow room for growth, and check the fit regularly to make sure your child has not outgrown them.
The way the boots curve at the top of the feet reminds us of the Alexander McQueen armadillo boots. But the way the boots mold away from the back of the knees like horse legs and taper into hoof-like toes are a whole different visual experience. 59ce067264
