Formal laced dress boots have a long history. To be able to afford formal boots often meant you were a member of the aristocracy, because of the cost of the extra material and the craftmanship required to make them. Today, dress boots straddle the line between a tough, rugged aesthetic and a formal wear that is appropriate for a work environment - and often it can be difficult to find dress boots that look good with a suit. 

The Barrister's Boots are the answer: a delicate balance between nonconforming style, elegant and office appropriate formality, and the added bonus of extra ankle support and warmth for colder seasons. These vegan leather boots can be paired with dress pants or worn in the casual day to day to really elevate your style and add a bit of punchy visual interest without losing practicality. Whether you're wearing them to your law firm or to your local dive bar, with a long cuff they appear just as nice as a pair of dress shoes, and with a short or rolled up pant leg can be shown off as the sturdy ankle cut boots they truly are.

Each pair of Barrister's Boots comes with a complementary tin of neutral shoe polish.

The Perfect Shoe!

I was looking for a shoe to wear for my wedding and was struggling to find something that felt Masc but fit my foot. The Barrister is the perfect fit - I'm tempted to by it in other colors too

Comfortable and stylish

I wear a size US 6 and I ordered these in EU 35. They fit perfectly. They’re comfortable and roomy in the toes while still having a very masculine, pointed silhouette, which I love. A complimentary tin of shoe polish came with them, even though they arrived spotless and shiny. I would highly recommend these boots to anyone.

Beautiful shoes; wish they were sturdier

I genuinely love the look and feel of these, and bought a second pair when my first wore out. However, it has been under a year and they are literally falling apart---cracks and crumbling on the back of the heel; the sole peeling off the front of one. They are really lovely shoes, and maybe with infrequent wear they would hold up better, but for a shoe nice enough to be go-to footwear the corresponding short lifespan is really frustrating.

Hi Avery,

We're so sorry you hear you're having these issues with your boots! We'll have a customer service representative reach out to you as soon as possible to see how we can make this right for you.

All the best,
The Tomboy Toes Team


They are comfortable. They are a little big for its size

Beautiful shoes, not as cozy as my other pair

My new Tomboy Toes shoes arrived looking just as beautiful as I expected! I have another pair that I bought a few years ago, and I was hoping these would have the same supportive, cushioned sole that the earlier pair did. No dice - they're thinner on the inside, and after a long day of wearing them my feet were not happy. I think they'll be perfect with an insole, though, and I plan to keep trying them out.
