I started taking a shine (pun intended) to motorcop boots. Maybe it's because cops in The Cities never wore interesting boots, as I don't remember noticing them. Any chance you could share any older photos of what Minneapolis motorcops used to wear?
Sorry no, pics, motor cops were fazed out few years ago was an article in the Star/Trib that they turned their bikes in had them repaired and then when Hennipen County sold them they bought their former bikes for pennys on the dollar.
Mounted Police in summer wear tall boots mostly used around bar closing time down town.
It was so awesome watching the guys get our of their squads with their shinny jump boots sticking out or their pant legs. Favorite memory was at the Aquatenial parade 6 people were busted for drinking alcohol on the street. cop made them put their drinks on the curb and get going. He slowly pushed each individual glass with the toe of his high polished boots so the drinks spilled into the gutter. I hoped he would crush the glasses with the soles of his boots but he did not.
