Speaking of Boots . . .

Is it wrong for a man to complement a woman on her footwear? Specifically, a pair of knee high leather boots that look like they are made to dig into a horse's flanks in order to get it to move? There was a woman in the bookstore today, quizzing me about our used book buying procedures. She was an attractive woman, probably close to my age range. I didn't notice her boots until she started to walk away. I had a strong urge to exclaim "nice boots!" but coming from a man, my comments would probably be perceived as sexual in nature...which they would be, of course. I opted for the safer route, and held my tongue. Besides, she probably has a collection of whips at home in her closet.
