Combat Boots for Under $80

Ok, so combat boots are back, and, after years of 7 inch platform heels, our feet are kinda of excited. Combat boots are extra comfortable, with heels usually under 1.5 inches, and the shoes do add a bit of tough girl vibe to any outfit. For those of you who are concerned about the emergence of this trend, fearing fellow fashionistas will abuse this trend much like they abused the UGG boot trend, take solace in the fact that they are now being worn in a much more tailored fashion.
