When is it appropriate to boot up and when not?

I tend to wear shoes to formal occasions but stick to boots the rest of the time.

Or trainers.

I wear Cowboy boots all the time,I always keep them polished though.I wear them to Weddings and any other functions that require a suit. I don't wear them in a tux. I also don't wear them with slacks that have cuffs as the pant does'nt hang right. They should always be in good repair.
I wear calf boots with a suit. I'm a boot lover.
I generally wear boots for everything but theatre and clinicals.
Try the boots by RM Williams from Oz.
I agree with Craig. My Frye's Are Polished and ready all the time.
I wear my combat boots all of the time. I'm not even sure if I fit in the other shoes I own anymore. Actually, I borrowed a pair of dress shoes for my mother's graduation because the soles were falling off and, due to a lack of money for new boots or boot repairs, duct taped back on the pair I had then.
Normally, when my boots are not in such bad shape and I have to attend a formal occasion, I just polish them up and they're fine.
I love boots, and wear them most of the time, but I don't think one should wear boots on formal or semi-formal occasions. I think it looks sloppy and informal. If you have to (or should) wear a tie, you shouldn't wear boots. You wouldn't wear dress shoes on a hiking trip or if you were laying asphalt, so why would you wear boots when you're going to a wedding or to an office?
I'm normally a barefoot person as much as possible. I think the shoe industry is doing us a disservice by making all these highly technical shoes when our feet have evolved naturally into the fine load-bearing system that they are.

That being said, though, I love to wear a nice pair of boots when the weather doesn't permit one to go barefoot (which is often the case here in the Midwest). My normal every day wear when not at work is a pair of hiking boots, and if I had a pair of these Wolverine boots I'd probably even wear those to work, too. Keep them to a high shine and you'll be looking sharp!
I think it's not about weather or not you're wearing boots, but weather or not you are taking care of the boots you are wearing. If they are in good condition then they should be fine, but I'll probably wear a pair of shoes at my wedding
I wear them unless it's too hot and feet will get sweaty.
I don't know...wearing boots all the time is not my style. I have a "shoe for the purpose" mentality. On my motorcycle, I wear engineer boots (and a Schott Perfecto leather, seriously), when I am working, I wear a pair of Redwing loggers, and when I am off to work, I stick my feet into my Johnston & Murphy's...

Boots are for boot times, but I wear good ones when it's boot time. My only sort of rule is that trainers are for the gym -- men wear proper shoes out in the world...

Birkenstocks rock for the summer...no boots for the hot days in the city...
I wear boots about half the time. I think my cut off is dress slacks although I got married in my doc marten boots :)
