  1. You stop wearing boots? A friend of mine and I were having this discussion. She feels that once it passes the 70 deg F on a regular basis for the highs, she puts hers away. However, I have another female friend who wears her riding boots almost up to 90 deg F outside. What is your comfort zone? And if you wear them when it does get warmer out, do you still wear stockings, socks, etc. with them?
  2. If you don't mind me asking, what was the sellers username?
  3. So as things continue to progress, I started thinking about getting some gloves. Now I've always wanted a pair, shoulder length leather, but seeing as how those aren't the easiest to get on and off in winter time when wearing sweaters, I decided I should look at more practical options. The problem I have is that I'm not familiar with any decent leather glove manufacturers. So does anyone have any recommendations? I definitely want leather, and as for lining, I don't necessarily have a preference. I'm looking for some that are no more than elbow length, if that. Thanks in advance for the help!
  4. @JeffB I thought I would let you know that you're semi-famous! I googled 'men in skirts and heels' earlier and look who showed up!
  5. Order the sandals!
  6. I personally haven't measured it, but according to the site, it is only about 2.5" the site specifically says 2.44
  7. So with my wife out of town, I am breaking in some old boots I haven't worn in a while. However, I noticed tonight that the sole on the one is starting to separate. Does anyone have any ideas on the best option to reattach them?
  8. So today my wife and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary! We went up to Cincinnati to shop at IKEA yesterday, and went outlet shopping up in Monroe. I admit I didn't think an opportunity would come about to convince my wife to get wedge sneakers, but because they were on sale, we both got a pair! I will post a picture of hers later, but these are mine. They came with red laces but I really liked the look of the white laces in there.
  9. I've been in cincinnati an awful lot lately. I responded in my Fremont thread that I am actually overdue to be out there...
  10. I now am leaving on the 18th of December from the Fremont area. If nothing else, I would love the opportunity to meet up with some other fellow shoe lovers in the area. Anyone?
  11. It's been too long since I've been. I'm overdue to be back out there, actually. Work hasn't gotten their stuff together though, lol
  12. Well, as of yesterday, I have been notified I am flying out tomorrow morning for Fremont. Is there anyone around there? I am going to be there until next Saturday.
  13. I really like these boots! As I am a size 10, I may need to look for a pair for myself. I have a slightly similar looking pair of boots.
  14. Looks good to me! Do you know what the style name is of them?
  15. Ok, so here is my newest pair that I've acquired. I know I usually have a lengthy back story, but here lately, they've been interesting. So with my job, I usually go to people's homes pretty regularly. This past week when I was at someone's house, I commented to the husband about how much his wife must do with eBay. Two of the three spots in their three car garage were filled with shoe boxes. He responded that they had like 8 more pallets worth in their basement. Apparently his wife buys return inventory from businesses as well as purchases inventory from places going out of business. Later on at some point, she comes out and we are talking. She gives me her eBay username and tells me to have a look and see if there is anything I or my wife may find that we like. If so, message her, and she'll give us a better price. So that night, I initially look and don't see anything too exciting. I let my wife look and she finds some things, but nothing she really wants. I get back on and look, and happen to see a pair of Hunter rain boots in a size 10. So I message her and tell her we'd be interested in those. Normally they go on eBay for around $80-90 USD from what I saw. She replies and tells me she pulled them, and if I'm around at some point, I can stop by and get them, or she'll give them to her husband and I can get them from him next time I see him out and about. I see him about once a week. I asked her how much though, and her response was, "After all that you've done, these are on the house." So these babies are brand new, and free! Yippee!
  16. Those boots are lovely! Where did you get them from?
  17. Someone had once posted in "Boots and shoes that we wished we owned" about d-squared rain boots. I thought people may be interested to know these gems popped up on eBay.
  18. To clarify, this is NOT my listing. I was browsing and stumbled across these!
  19. So I have noticed this here a few times recently, most noticeably this morning. I have come across situations where someone has noticed my riding boots or heels, and made an effort to confirm what they are seeing, sneakily of course. I catch them, but I don't usually strike up a conversation. I secretly wish they would ask me about them, whether privately or publicly. The reason I thought about this is this morning I was sitting in church, and a girl in her mid-late 20's that I know fairly well was sitting directly behind me. At one point I get up and when walking back to my seat, I noticed her clearly trying to look at my shoes and figure out what I was wearing. I am not sure she was too embarrassed or confused, but I wish she had asked me either in person or said something to me on Facebook(we are friends on there) regarding them. Does anyone else ever have that?
  20. New update: so last night, I told my wife about this. She laughed and said that since I banter back and forth with this girl on a regular basis, I should just call her out on it. So I did... It turns out she was checking out my shoes! She had a shoe fetish and had never seen a guy wear shoes like I did and she really liked them. Needless to say we developed a new friendship last night!
  21. So an update... Last week she was not there, but today she was and I was again wearing the same riding boots as before. Unless my eyes deceived me, she definitely snuck a picture of them. I definitely want to approach it now, but not sure how to without it being awkward, especially if she Didn't take a picture...
  22. Pictures?
  23. I had bought my wife some boots from Nine West a couple of years ago, and loved the quality. Normally I wouldn't spend a lot of money on boots from eBay, but they were NIB, and I knew the quality would be good. I wore them out last night under jeans and they were surprisingly comfortable.
  24. My new Nine West Sabora boots. <3
  25. So the first pair I am posting is a high contender for a Cincy outing as they are very easy/comfortable to walk in. They are Jessica Simpson brand. The top can be folded up to have an at-the-knee look on me.
