Who has bought some new BOOTS?

Those are really nice!  Don't hide them under jeans.

Did your sister know that you had bought a pair of "her" boots?  You will have to get a picture if you both wear them together.

I have received them and look forward to wearing them for a test walk soon.

Test walk soon??? How could you receive the boots and not immediately give them a try? :penitent:

I had to work and heels at work are not an option at the moment.

My sister doesn't know I got the same style. I ordered mine before she got hers, so she brought a pair of my boots lol.

Wore these to Books A Million and I had to say it felt great did not hear if anyone giving compliments or not because I had my headphones on and kept it moving.  Trying to make a goal and do it more frequently so hey gotta start some where right!large.5857d51296b5c_Wornoutintheopen.jpg

Ah, getting up in the world and looking good.  As you noted, wearing headphones do limit hearing comments, good and bad.  You might consider engaging with the public a bit more, and yes, I know that is a big step while wearing heels.

I got the test walk done this afternoon. About 1 1/2 hours. Comfortable and even got a compliment from a lady on my style choice. She asked the usual questions about why I wear heels? How long have I been wearing heels and style we both like. She seemed open to he concept of men wearing heels.

I had to wear  them under jeans as the zip wouldn't do up.

You might have to loosen the lacing when wearing them over jeans.  It does seem like a shame to hide them.  I'm glad you had a good outing and compliments are always good.

Nice looking boots.

Your lucky it was only one size too large.  Heavy socks will fix that.  My experience has been to order two sizes larger than my size to get my size.

One of the things I have learned for sure is that sizing is all over the map when it comes to women's boots.   I am a size 11 in women's boots, but have been able to fit in some boots sized 9.5.  This makes it kind of tough to order online unless they give specific measurements, and a liberal return policy.  I think the shape of the toe has a lot to do with the size discrepancies.  I am currently looking at a great pair of boots on ebay, but they are only sized 9.5, the seller is being cagey about accepting a return, his policy states "no returns", so will have to get something in writing before I buy them.  The seller mentions that the length of the boots is: 10-7/8", which seems much bigger than a women's size 9.5.  Needless to say, the outer length dimension is not directly related to the actual size.  And, a pointed toe will increase the length, but will not necessarily allow are larger size foot inside...A few months back, I took a chance on a cool pair of women's Frye boots, sized 9.5.  Couldn't even get my foot inside them...

I stopped at the Goodwill, just because I was in the area, and found a new pair of brown faux suede boots "Eliza" by George with a 2½" block heel for $8. I tried them on and they fit perfectly so I headed to the register.  On the way I saw some 3" wide elastic belts with fancy buckles for $2 each and added two to my collection.

I went to a jam last night and wore a long black sweater with one of the belts and OTK boots.  This was primarily a guitar jam but I also took my cello which just adds to my "never know what to expect" image.

I dashed outside for the picture and discovered it was way too cold (30F -1C) for short sleeves and a mini skirt but that was this morning's attire.  I took the close up picture indoors. :penitent:

Merona Joelle Booties from Target

So as my wife continues to level up her comfort of my heeling(yes, pun intended), I have been on the search for some boots that could be looked at as either masculine or feminine to keep her comfortable. I primarily searched DSW.com because I had two certificates totaling $25 off, and who doesn't love discounted things?!

Now just as a precursor for those of you who don't know, I have two pairs of riding boots I try to wear almost every day, regardless of the company I am around. The one pair of heeled boots I absolutely love to wear, my wife is still warming up to me wearing them around town, but when I am out of town for work, she doesn't care.

So this trek was to find some boots that could pass either way, and at least be within her comfort level.

Oirignally she was comfortable with boots she saw that were 2" or less in heel, but these are between 2.25 and 2.5", so not much taller, but she did like them a lot. I've already worn them out twice within the first week of getting them, and I must say, they are extremely comfortable! My only wish is that the calf was a bit smaller, as I have 'chicken legs' per my wife's description.

I took photos with 3 different pairs of jeans, and am curious as to what you all think!

The boots are Sable, made by Indigo Rd., size 10m

Was in need of some OTK boots as I currently (or previously) didn't own any. Couldn't decide between the Chinese Laundry luster or the Aldo Graziella, so when I found one for over 50% off on Ebay I just got both. Stock pictures below. Also a review on Aldo for anyone interested. I think the Aldo are a bit classier, they are very soft. 

 

Kneebooted, the jeans tucked in I think looks better. When you wear them under jeans you get the awkward bulge at the top of the boots.

So I think it goes without saying both pairs are hot, and I would love to have either!

Thanks for the compliment too!

As for the bulge when I wear the boots under jeans, I found that if I wrap my knee high socks over the tops, it pulls them in and hides the bulge. In the above pictures, I was just wearing some regular socks, but I totally agree with you.

Sadly, the funtasma cowboy boots I bought last year have gone out of stock in my size, so I guess I'm just going to have to wait until my size is restocked.

Thank you! Those are more casual IMO, I've worn those with skinny jeans and a sweater to the movies a few times so far.
