RIP, intoboots.fr

Bye, intoboots.fr!

Thank you for showing me “A nice world of tall boots”.

Even I don’t know you, but I really want to thank you!

Because of you from France, I started to know more brands of riding boots. Because of  you, I am really into boots now! Because of you, I bought my first pair of riding boots at age of 19. Because of you, I know that I am not the only guy who is into boots and think I am weird. Because of you, I know that expressing my interests with everyone in the world though websites is great. Because of you, I created this blog. Because of you, I love boots! Because of you, I learn how to tuck my jeans into my boots. Because of you, I can see bootmen all over the world by browsing their pictures.

I really like your websites. The organizations were great!  I bet you must put a lot of works on it. I have been going on your sites for a few years. First, you organized the gallery by brands. Now you organized the gallery by countries. You would increment how many people has visited one bootman’s page and show us a top 10 list. You also kept us updated by putting recent changes on the front page. And you put titles on all small album to help us spend time on your websites, because it is really well organized.

If the website was not shut down so suddenly, I promise I would save all the images from you website for future.

I really appreciate your works over years, I know that putting on a personal website may cost a lot of money and know! I understand you shut down the site so suddenly must have a reason. I am not going to blame on you. Instead, I will contribute more to the bootmen community by posting more of my works to thank you to bring me into “A nice world of tall boots.”

This blog is dedicated to you, intoboots.fr

Hope one day you read this post and will decide to continue your great booted sites!’

Thank you so much, and this song is for you. Hope you have a good life.

  1. Hello, thank you Wabootboy for your tribute to Pascal from Nantes, France, the owner of IntoBoots and his website which closed down in 2011 after many years in operation. Like yourself, I was in some ways surprised that Pascal had closed down his site but in other ways I understood. I operated several free fetish sites for Equestrian Boots and other interests but after a while it became too time consuming and I didn’t feel that the time was worth the effort and I decided to focus on other things I had neglected.

    Through IntoBoots, I met some fine bootmen and admired photos of other bootmen from around the world. I am sure Pascal’s efforts were a labor of love but sometimes the love diminishes and it is time to move on.

    Nonetheless, I feel it is important to maintain contact with other tall Bootmen as we are a small dedicated group and invite you or other Bootmen to keep in touch with me. I live in Chicago and my photos on IntoBoots were under the name–Chicago Bootman. You can view other phos of me on the website Recon; my profile name there is Broncobustr or on Facebook ny profile name is Bronco Bustr with the following link: http://www.facebook.com/broncobuster?ref=tn_tinyman#!/broncobuster?sk=info or you can find me on the european gay fetish site GayRomeo at GayRomeo.com where my profile name is BootsSaddlesWhips or feel free to contact me directly at Ponytrainer@att.net.

    All the best to you.

  2. I am deeply moved by your outpour of genuine emotions, and I am proud to be your fellow citizen of Hong Kong. You have shown the noble sentiments of a bootboy at their finest, and this came as very little surprise for those who learnt about your earlier efforts, as a schoolboy in your early teens, which created such impact and changes in your native Hong Kong, to the extent that many people are now more open in showing off their pride in their boots. It looks very likely that you will stay in the States after your studies, but Hong Kong needs websites such as your, and no doubt brave guys like you as well. I am all homage and adoration in front of your proud boots.
