Ugly is interesting; ugly presents a challenge to be overcome; ugly is consistent with more casual style that's less concerned being proper and clean and simple. Embrace ugly.
I started writing this guide in an attempt to catch everything worth catching. I ended up running into more styles than I could really hope to capture... But hopefully, this is good enough.
The word "boot" has often times been oversimplified to refer particularly to casual boots. This oversimplification in turn feeds the misunderstanding that all boots are casual. I'm here to remind you that they aren't.
