Similar to the motorcycle boots offered at Vanguard Boots, the riding boots made out of thick leather material, were invented in the 10th century, and were generally worn by horseback riders, as the long length prevented the lower legs of the rider from getting pinched by the leather used on the horse saddle. Although, they also had a sturdy material around the toes to protect the foot while on the ground, along with a distinct heel which was sued to prevent the sliding of foot from the stirrup.
The harness boots were originally made on the model of the square toed shoes that became widespread in the 19th century, and the design was also incorporated in the production of boots that were worn as a part of their uniform by the American military troops during the Civil War in the 1860s.
Later in the 1960s, rings and leather straps were integrated into the harness boots to give them a sense of style, which resulted in the creation of a modern version of the boots that later rapidly turned into classic statement pieces.
