Lots of stars wear the same shoes, bags, sunglasses and even sweaters over and over again, but we think Johnny Depp’s scruffy brown boots have just about had it. When we spotted him in this spiffy zoot suit at the New York premiere of Sweeney Todd the other night, we loved his look — until we got to his footwear. In fact, Johnny has been sporting these same beat-up boots since 1999 (as seen in photo on the left)! We think it’s about time he invest in a new pair — perhaps these Timberland workboots, $300, at would suit him? Tell us: Should Johnny Depp get new boots? What do you think when you see a guy wearing scruffy shoes?

No way should he get new boots! Those boots have character, stories and memories. I think they are awesome! They fit his style and personality. Keep them until the soles fall off!

Leave the man his ‘lucky boots’!
Obviously, this is not a money issue, rather an emotional tie … something about these boots is very special to him, since well before 1999. The fact that he doesn’t care whether everybody on the red carpet understands his choice of footwear is rather sympathetic.

His boots have history, i wish i was his boots he can put his feet on me anytime. He’s hot no matter what he wears.. it just show age doesn’t matter when you have character and personality, he can wear womens clothes and he still looks Hot!!! DAMN

No way!! They set him apart and show his personality, which seems to be, yeah I’ll dress up, but I’m not willing to put in too much effort, and I am Jhonny Depp so can do whatever the #@$% I want.

No, this is what makes Johnny so sexy! He doesnt feel the need to be lavish even though he is a millionaire. He’s subtle about his money which was sexy even before he became a huge star in the 80’s.

you all are so right.

Johnny can do whatever he wants. He is so cool because he’s talented and gorgeous and he just doesn’t need anyone else’s approval. He is a trail blazer and I wouldn’t want him to change at all.

Johnny looks hot no matter what he wears- I say keep the boots. As a matter of fact, I would love to see him in nothing but those boots!

These are NOT the same boots. The ones on the left are black. And if you look closely the laces are different as well. Do you seriously have nothing else to talk about?

When you look like Johnny Depp, who is even paying attention to your SHOES?
