Other boots, such as a derby boot or a Chelsea boot, are traditionally not appropriate for morning wear. If you care for tradition, skip these boots otherwise you may want to experiment in front of the mirror. Of course, you do not want to wear any kind of hiking boots but much rather boots with thin leather soles. Rubber soles may be more functional in everyday use but leather soles are more elegant and create a debonair sound when walking.
