Some of my Friends have been sending my wife and I pics and videos of the latest "Naco" Craze going on in Mexico, Texas and California. They are called Botas Picudas, which translates as Pointy Boots. They are worn almost exclusively by men and are all the wage in the Chuntaro and Naco communities.
They are usually worn with normal cowboy attire - cowboy hats, tight jeans, fancy button-down shirts and big belt buckles. The only difference was they are wearing these comical boots instead of normal cowboy boots.
I have been reading that the men wearing these boots have been getting very competitive about whose boots are longer and pointier. There are mock showdowns and there have even been fights. I suppose some people will cut the tips off in order to "Shame" their opponents.
It has gotten so ridiculous that some of the botas picudas can be so long that the wearer attaches the tip of the boot to their wrists to keep from tripping.
Check out the documentary below. It explains how DJ Erick Rincón and the Tribal music scene in Mexico City played a part in popularizing botas picudas throughout Mexico and even here in the United States.
To me, I think it is a ridiculous style. They are not practical and look even comical. Do the people wearing these things actually think they are cool wearing them? As my Monterrey friends point out, they are most often worn by people who are deemed "Nacos" or "Chuntaros". I thought it was appropriate to post this today since I just did a terrifying Tuesday post on Nacos. (See how I tie everything together)
Let me know what you think in the comments section and please, if you are a Naco, let me know why you wear these things. (That is assuming Nacos can use a computer)
