Pointy Toe Boots: Poulaines are Alive & Worn Once More!
Poulaines are those long pointed shoes that can be seen on fashionable young men in works of art from the Gothic period. I was amazed to find out that this look is alive and well in a craze from Mexico that centers around super long pointed toes on cowboy boots. These fantastical boots are worn in dance competitions by young peacocks, not unlike the posing young men in those scenes from merry old Europe.
While the old costumer in me is glad she isn't trying to modify some boots into this style, I am hoping to run across a pair sometime soon to see them in action!
