So, we’ve put together a list of the best men’s boots that you can wear for date night. Men’s boots come in all different shapes and sizes for a variety of occasions and locations.

So you might be wondering, why boots for date night? Here’s the thing, sneakers or dress shoes might be fine for date night, but there are occasions where boots are just better and will give you an advantage. Sometimes, boots will genuinely look better with your outfit, than any other option. Often, though boots are just more functional. For example, when you’re hiking, you want to wear hiking boots, not sneakers. If you’re going on a date during snowy and icy months or you’re doing winter activities, you need sturdy winter boots with good traction. So, you don’t slip. You might even be able to help your date if they aren’t wearing appropriate footwear, themselves. Nothing says knight in shining armor like a guy who can stop their date from slipping on ice.
There’s nothing better for your classic dinner date than a pair of these men’s boots. They’re a guaranteed way to show your date just how much you wanted to impress them. They’ll go with just about everything in your closet, so depending on the restaurant dress code, or lack thereof, you can get away with wearing them either way. For a fancier atmosphere, pair the boots with a darker wash men’s jean —no distressing—and go for a collared shirt and sweater combo. At more casual outings, you can get away with a distressed jean and a nice T-shirt layered with a peacoat or bomber jacket. Regardless, your date is probably going to be so focused on that sweet pair of kicks you’re wearing that it won’t even matter!
Sure, hiking may not really be a date “night” activity and more for daytime instead, but it still deserves a spot on the list.

This way, you don’t have to worry about anything other than making a great impression on your date. No pressure!
