Boot season is my favorite. Started out a little on the conservative side with new Steve Madden boots.  Perfect for shopping earlier in the evening and then stopping at a few places in the city.  Perfect weather to be out in boots and a skirt.  Several compliments tonight

Like the suede fitted toe box looks really nice and the heel height perfection. What compliments did you get care to share?

Agree tomorrow getting little cooler so i just might put on my heel booties to a mall. Have some unfinished business last Sunday ready to try on a Black knitted stretch long sleeve sweater with Rag & bone Moss Dre jeans. If they have both in stock i might take a picture in the change room.

I had a couple of great compliments on my outfit,  but the boots were really the vote getter!!!

Hope you post some pics of your outfit to shop in!!!

Thanks for the compliment.   It's a lot of fun to go out in my heels/outfits.  I get some great compliments. Not one negitive.  For the most,,,, don't even notice.   Would be a lot more fun if it was in a group!!!

Did little shopping this weekend decided to wear my new Rag & bone harrow booties. Went downtown this time to exchange a pair of jeggings to a smaller size in a exclusive women's store. Again the girl helping me thought it was for someone else this time i corrected her it was for me. She apologized and asked if i wanted to try them on. 

Did it when she asked how they feel going down from 26 25 I couldn't feel or see the difference. As I walked out in the store mirrors while few woman watched. Only seen the sales girl reaction to me in these painted on jeggings lifting my shirt up. Her reaction subtle but taken aback at how tight they looked. Doubt she was impressed or liked it, but put on a friendly demeanour after cashing out. 

Didn't receive any stares because of my heel booties it was a bit odd for me always expecting  dirty looks. Felt i was so confident enough to wear some stiletto pumps but since i didn't have any these booties were good enough. Only after browsing buying Theory knit sweater at another store i did notice a female walking into my aisle  checking out my tight crop jeans and booties. 

Overall didn't see any woman walking around in heel stilettos around the streets or stores. Counted only two females and one booties similar to mine. Almost all woman i observed wear sneakers or flat chelsea ankle boots.

The pictures don't show how well the almost 4 inch heel represents itself. Don't know the angle of the photos makes my outfit appear crap, Do feel I look a little better then photos show. Maybe it's just me and the outfit is a bit unpolished. Could be the leather jacket isn't snug enough to get a more streamline appearance. 

Do believe you need to go all out when dressed in skinny jeans end heels. If the upper torso looks to loose really throws the appearance way off.

That is why I dress with tight fitting tops in the gym to match up my crop leggings I wear. Gives a better overall athletic appearance. While wearing a loose shirt something looks off. 

Overall at the time I felt really comfortable wearing what I did. The extra height in the heels gave me even smug confidence. As I shopped I noticed the Asian female across the blouse racks adjoining my aisle staring at me. Once she turned the corner looking over my lower body without any sort of negative reaction. Was really refreshing not hearing a smirking grunt or giggle or dirty stares. 

Wanted to extend my shopping experience at a mall nearby. Thought not to push sooner or later someone would make a judgemental reaction seeing me. 

Before my shopping I needed to find a restroom from my drive downtown. Parked my car near a lot and walked to a corner McDonalds which I didn't yet change out of my white designer sneakers. When I walked quickly to the restaurant noticed old Asian lady laughing soon as I passed her. Seen a  young couple talking the female eyes were observing me to and from my car. As I made my way into McDees opened the door for a three teen girls also needed to use the restroom. Surprising no real reaction from the girls like giggling etc... Although did overhear some sort of comments about me from one unaware I was following them to the restroom upstairs. Notice after leaving one sitting at a table waiting for her friends stared upon me closely and seriously. Shows me sometimes it's not the bootie heels gets attention but my legs wrapped in denim tightly. 

Do feel the need to get my feet in some 4" pump stilleto and black opaque pantyhose  or stockings in a fitted tunic and do some more serious shopping finding some gems  woman overlooked. Find shopping can be enjoyable if the environment is non judgemental.

Do feel going out of town malls feels awkward because of families feeling safe in the surrounding giggling noticing my feminine  style over-reacting pointing fingers etc... Unlike downtown most people not familiar to shops or street traffic being a little more preoccupied and unsafe then confines of a secure mall.  Less likely to notice me closely maybe presuming I was just a female shopping without realizing I was a man.

I saw a pair of old ZU thigh boots on gumtree (Aus 2nd hand selling site) and grabbed them

They look perfect! Great find. Wish to wear exact same boots sometime very hot indeed without looking overwhelming. Believe it's the platform front toe box is seamless blends the boot giving it a normal appearance less bulky moon-boot, ski boot style.

Just curious what is the circumference of the opening above the knee? 

That's a problem with a lot of over the  knee boots fitting to loose making the appearance not looking good.  These seem to fit snugly makes it that much better looking.

My calves are about 40cm. But the stretch back on these means they fit easily but look snug

I bought these from Amazon last week and they arrived today.  Lucky Brand, Orenzo style.  The description said 3" heel but they were, in fact, just 1/8" short of 4".  The height was quite walkable, but the fit was not great.  Size 12 was too loose on my left foot and too narrow for my right foot.  They were going to be my go to boots for winter heel outings - alas, back they go.  Too bad.

I am so in love with my new pair.....

You want to see them?

So let´s look, what´s inside the box?

box.jpg

For a long time I have been looking for a perfect pair of thigh boots. And now I have them :cheeky:

box2.jpg

 

These  are amazing boots. What makes me feel a little bit sad, is the fact, that these quality level is these days very hard to find. 100% ultra soft leather & leather sole. Yes there are some great brands out there - but I you don´t want to spend 1000+ USD/Euros, you have to search/hunt... This kind of quality makes the fun when wearing them. I think they will be a great conversation starter when going out :cheeky:

Just bought these a JC Penney  yesterday. They are a bit narrow but after wearing nylons to slip them on easier they seem to have already broken in a bit. Can't wait to wear them out.

If the length shown for the size stated is accurate, they will be under-sized!   The claimed UK12/Eu47 would be more like a UK10/Eu44 if truly 28.5mm - but I hope for your sake that I'm wrong.   Let us know if they fit you.

Bought a pair of brand new INC boots 2 weeks ago from apparelsave on ebay. They are huge. 250000 listing plus at a time

well they were cheap as $31 AU plus $11 AU postage from USA to AUS. Heck it costs more for me to send locally (go figure)

but anway. Boots arrived in 2 weeks. Size 11 INC Bellona boots in black suede. 12.5 cm stilletto heel, 1.5 cm platform. 

Fit beautifully. Comfy, solid feel

my fave new heels for work. 

Please excuse pics. The shower area is the only place with a mirror
