  1. Lately I have noticed a lot of young Hispanic males wearing their jeans tucked into western boots around Oak Cliff. I'm even seeing construction guys doing it and we all know how bad they can tease/harass each other. It's just coming around again. In old times it was not uncommon but the practice ended after WWII, briefly seen in the 70's, but not really seen until today. Skinny jeans are so common now and work great for this look since they don't bunch up above the boot tops.
  2. There is no labeling on them whatsoever. I think they were ordered by somebody off of Aliexpress. They were listed as size 10 by the seller. It was a risk but at $16 worth taking but they fit like a glove.
  3. I just got these boots off Poshmark for $16. They are brand new! 25" shaft and 5" block heels.
  4. Yeah, all dressed up and no place to go now. All restaurants, bars, clubs, gyms, churches, etc. are now closed (except take out) in Dallas. Last night we went out to eat for the last time, El Tizancito for tacos and horchata (one of few places that give free refills) and last margarita for my wife. I wore my new Timberland knee highs with the 4 inch block heels, skinny jeans, and a leather jacket. The place was empty except one who was just leaving. Supermarket in the same strip mall was overrun with shoppers though.
  5. These waist high types are pretty common on Aliexpress. Here's one of their newer designs:
  6. You might give 10 a try in the store as I have another pair of Luckys that are 10 and they fit without stretching. Sometimes Macy's has 11 when nobody else does, even the manufacturer's website doesn't list them.
  7. I scored these Lucky Brand Azoola knee highs (last pair) this afternoon at Macy's in Arlington. These were one of the only two styles I wanted this past fall season and I haven't seen them in my size anywhere. These are a size 10, (funny though they also are marked EUR 42 which is usually larger than a USA 10), 20" measured shaft height, 3.5" stacked leather heel. There is a stretch panel at the ankle instead of a zipper opening. There is no lining, just rough leather inside. The right boot had been tried on a few times and had scuffs, which I removed with a good polishing. The left one was pristine in the box and was tighter than heck to get on. Once on the left one was worn for about an hour. They are standing outside my closet now with shoe stretchers inside for the next few days. Here's a video from Zappos: Zappos Video of Lucky Boots
  8. I have bought a good number of boots from Macy's but not in over a year. They are rather good at stocking 10 and 11 size. The biggest shoe department I have ever seen is at Macy's NYC flagship store. There's a six floor DSW right down the street from there also.
  9. I participate in online forums such as this but only have one social media in my name, a twitter account that I rarely use and only for my techno-hobby stuff. I have never nor will ever have a facebook account. That is the first place HR types look when you apply for a job and regularly spy on you from then until they fire you and for a period after that. I don't give any of those types any satisfaction of finding me.
  10. I agree, so I generally try to avoid brands/styles I'm not familiar with their sizing online. I generally can get into size 10 for Sam Edelman but need an 11 for Vince Camuto. I bought stretchers from Bed Bath & Beyond so that makes it easier if they are a bit tight. The best thing about the stores I mentioned is they have everything out on shelves for you to try on with no help from any sales people. They lay out the shoes by size so 10's are in one row, 11's in the next.
  11. Some sellers on ebay are good. I've used Zappos and 6pm (Zappos owns them too). The past couple of years I've been finding bargains locally at Nordstrom Rack, Dillards Clearance Center, and Saks off Fifth stores. I've also found some at Bloomingdales outlets. I haven't been buying online as much since moving to Dallas. Also buying anything has been curtailed due to running out of closet space.
  12. I'm still looking. Lots of jobs around but the wrong time of the year to be interviewing. One more week and everything opens back up. For now though I'm all dressed up with no place to go!
  13. Leather is always best. Polyurethane is known to peel and crack just sitting in the closet after a while. Leather allows water vapor to escape so your feet and legs don't get soaking wet on even moderate days.
  14. Sam Edelman is one of my staples and I usually get a size 10 as 11 seems too big. I had a pair in 11 and had to give them away because my feet were sliding around. On the other hand Vince Camuto seem to run smaller though I do have two pairs in 10 but I had to stretch them.
