A go-to shoe style for many, Latifah included, combat boots are utilitarian footwear created for foot protection, ankle support and a gripping tread originally designed for soldiers on the battlefield. Classically made of black leather, combat boots were adopted by counterculture movements in the 1980s and 1990s, like the goth, punk, grunge and heavy metal scenes.
