Boots are an ancient form of footwear originally designed to protect the wearer from cold, moisture, or other hazards. The earliest boots consisted of three parts - called soles, uppers, and leggings - that were worn in an overlapping fashion to protect the foot, ankle, and leg. Around 1,000 B.C., the first one-piece boots were invented.

Today, boots come in many styles. Steel toed boots protect construction workers, while other boots are used in such applications as horseback riding, hiking, flight suits, and the military. Cowboy boots have became a well-known symbol of the American west, and these and other styles of boots are considered fashion accessories. Rain boots, or galoshes, are often brightly colored and worn by both children and adults in rainy weather.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Boots

Boots drawing - step 1

1. Begin by drawing a cylinder. To draw the cylinder, start with a set of vertical, parallel lines. Connect the lines with a curved line at both the top and bottom. Then, enclose an oval shape at the top using an additional curved line. You now have a three dimensional cylinder.

2. Using the cylinder as a guide, add detail to the outline of the boot. On each side of the cylinder, draw a curved line that passes in and out of the cylinder. Draw a small, rounded triangle at the bottom of the cylinder to indicate the point where the bottom of the shoe meets the heel.

5. Begin the second boot by drawing another cylinder. Since this boot is partially hidden by the first, you can use one straight, vertical line and two curved lines to enclose the shape.
