Prada’s new collection of chunky boots is the pinnacle of the phrase, “Boots the house down boots” (an exclamation from the drag community meaning that something is amazing) and are in this Los Angeles blogger’s opinion, a luxury fashion shoe worth every penny. After buying and wearing these new Prada boots for a few days, I thought it was time to write a new fashion post highlighting my brand-new favorite boots.
Welcome to my first impression and review of the Prada Brushed leather and nylon combat boots! In short, these Prada boots are not a toot, they are an absolute shoot! (Meaning these Prada boots are absolutely amazing.) However, for those interested in a longer review, just keep scrolling to read about my first impressions on these Prada combat boots, and why I think they’re a perfect addition for any 2020 fall fashion closet.
2020 Fall Fashion Review: Men’s Prada Brushed Leather and Nylon combat boots
I’ve always been a lover of boots. While I live in always-sunny Los Angeles, CA, as a fashion enthusiast and blogger I’ve never been shy of wearing what I want, even if the climate doesn’t agree with my decision. Wearing boots and tracking the growing popularity of Prada’s chunky boots and the combat boot trend is just my style. Maybe it’s because fall fashion is on the horizon or it’s the specific allure of Prada Brushed leather and technical fabric booties (the boots with Prada’s signature nylon pouch aside the boot) but Prada’s boots have never seemed to be bigger. And after wearing these boots, I admit that these Prada boots are big in both their price tag and size!
At the time that I bought these boots, in-store at the Rodeo Drive Prada store, the Prada Brushed leather and nylon combat boots retail for $1,050. The boots are a standard combat boot style with Prada’ signature nylon inserts on both the inside and outside. Prada’s logo adorns the ankle of the combat boot in an enameled metal logo triangle that matches the metal eyelets and hook closures. The heel of these chunky Prada boots measures 40 mm and the boots come in EU sizing. While I measure a size 9 in US, my Prada size conversation was a 7.5. (Thanks to the SA who took the time to let me try on a few pairs to find my right size.)
One thing that I commend Prada for on these boots is the level of comfort. I was able to walk in my Prada combat boots comfortably. And like all boots, after too long thought it does start to strain your ankle and foot. While I never wore the influencer-and-fashionista-favorite Prada Monolith leather boots, I’m sure they would still be comfortable! The chunky boots I bought are absent of the now signature Prada nylon coin purse, but that did not deter me from how much I love these boots.
When you shop Prada, you are shopping for quality and classic pieces. The Prada Brushed leather and nylon combat boots, in my opinion are the best boots for those wanting a staple luxury fashion piece, but something that’s versatile with many outfits. When I visited the Rodeo Drive Prada store I went in distressed black jean-shorts, a plain white t shirt, and a distressed denim jacket.
As you’ve seen in some of my photos, the men’s Prada combat boots truly tie together any outfit. Whether you’re channeling a punk-rock moment, or you want to create a juxtaposition like a blazer and shorts, these Prada combat boots have earned their place in your influencers and stylists fall fashion hauls and fall fashion must-have lists.
