Kneehigh leather boots with stiletto heel (Le Silla).
Kneehigh leather boots with stiletto heel (Le Silla).
  • To "die with one's boots on" means to die from violence as opposed to from natural causes (to "die in bed"); hence Boot Hill as a popular name for Wild West cemeteries.
  • Boot camp a colloquial term for the initial training of new recruits enlisting in a military organization.
  • Stormtroopers, skinheads, and other agents of authority or political strongarm tactics are typically referred to by their detractors as "jackbooted thugs," a reference to the tall riding or military-style boot of the Nazi uniform. Authoritarian rule, either by hostile military forces, or by groups of armed intimidators, is imposed by "jackboot tactics."
  • To "give someone the boot" means to kick them out (of a job, a club, etc.), either literally or figuratively.
  • To "put the boot off" someone's chin.
  • "The boot is on the other foot now" means that a situation has become reversed -- a previous victor is now losing, for example.
  • "Boot" also became a command in early computing, to mean starting up the computer or putting a program into the memory. It is still used today. It arose as short for "pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps".
  • Wearing "seven-league boots" references a classic children's fairy tale and indicates that a person or company can cover great distances, figuratively or literally, in a single stride.
  • Boots may also be use as a beer drinking device which one will fill up the boot and drink from it. The most recent notable boot use in the movie Beerfest. David Crocket broke his boot and needs to chug a beer for it anytime someone tells him too

A type of boot can fit into more than one of these categories, and may therefore be mentioned more than once
