Boot Scootin': Lambda Golf Boots

That's a photo Anna Rawson (@TheAnnaRawson) posted to Twitter. She can't play golf in those boots, right? Wrong! Because they are golf boots.

That's right, golf boots. They are made by a company called Lambda Classic Golf Shoes, not surprisingly a European company. Lambda describes its shoes, I mean boots, this way:

"Classic hand Made in Europe, waterproof golf boot and sole. ... European water repellent prime leather upper, Aquastop inlay breathable membrane ensures waterproof guarantee. ... Detachable soft Latex foot bed, covered in leather, for extra comfort. ... Ethylene-vinyl acetate insert on sole and heel for shock absorption impact on knees, hips and back. ... Soft spikes in TPU, Stinger Cleats (from Champ) or Proflex Cleats (from Trisport). ... We guarantee the best classic golf shoe ever built."

The women's version - called the Latina - is pictured here; as you can see, it is roughly knee-high. The men's boot is called Milano and only goes up just past the ankle; more of a high-top than a boot. But that might just be cross-cultural semantics.

The price for Anna's pair of Lambda Latina golf boots? €229.99, or about $300 at today's conversion rates. Anna not included. Visit the Lambda website to explore more.

Any ladies out there want to comment on whether you'd be willing to play golf wearing these golf boots? Doesn't seem like it'd be all that comfortable to me. But maybe I'd feel differently if I were a crossdresser.

  1. I just got these boots and they are absolutely fabulous! I cannot describe adequately how comfy they are and how cute they look with a tucked in skinny pant or a cute golf skort or dress. I emailed the company and they were so kind as to send me a pair in my size even though it was not listed on their site. These are gorgeous...I'm so happy I got them!
