Question High-button shoes

"Botines de botones" is an option to translate it into Spanish I found in another forum. That seems fine, if translating the actual physical 'object'. Yet, if it is used to name a "horse", I take that as a proper noun, it would be 'untranslatable'.

But, is there any other option?

Well, here we only use "botines" to name the shoes you use to play football. A high-button shoe I think its just named "zapato", if its what I'm thinking off. Can you put a picture?

Well, Poli put one link to what I meant. Would you call this "botines" or just "botas"?

Sí, en España también se usan esos términos, aunque quizá más "botas de fútbol".

Acá a esas botas les diríamos simplemente "botas", y creo que especificaríamos cómo son. Hablo popularme, seguramente alguien que sabe del tema las llamará de otra manera. Pero "botines" no creo porque ya está tomada por el fútbol ... las "botineras" son las mujeres que enganchan jugadores de fútbol, por su dinero y demás. La mayoría de las chicas que se ven en la tele de acá, que arman escandalo entre otras cosas, son "botineras". Y ahora mismo hay una serie que tiene ese nombre, y trata justamente sobre eso. Igualmente el botín no es solo para el fútbol, puede también ser para otro deporte como el rugby.

Gracias por los datos, Ookami. Tiene sentido. (Supongo que a Sara Carbonero la llamarías "botinera"... con todos mis respetos, y sin ánimo de polémica...) (Ella es la novia del capitán de la Selección Española, Iker...)

Aquí a los zapatos de futbol, se les llama "tacos (de futbol)".

El pequeño esperpento de la foto, se llamaría bota de/con botones. Los botines se asocian más con el calzado masculino o de tipo "vaquero".

Gracias, Angélica. Es curioso, en España los botines se tienden a asociar más con las mujeres y con los niños pequeños...
