Who has bought some new BOOTS?

Once more the postman cometh beating boxes of boots.  Just because I am expecting to wear this black pair a lot this winter and anticipate them getting messed up in the snow,

I bought a second pair.   They being on sale for $23 with free shipping made the decision to get a second pair easier.

The other new pair are also from ShoeShow.com.  These are Chelsea Moreland "Gorgeous" OTK boots in taupe size 12 with a 4" block heel for about $30.  The boots have a flashy zipper and the toe is almond shaped.  When I first put them on they the width was tight but they have relaxed a good bit with a second wearing.  The shaft on these boots is very light and just for show whereas the black boots are heavier and quite functionally warm.  The shaft, although not wide calf, is generous enough to need to be worn over jeans rather than leggings.  There is also a functional tie at the top (untied in the pictures).

The more I'm wearing these boots, the more I'm liking them.  They are also available in black, red, and gray and I'm sorely tempted.:penitent:

_______________________________

Addendum:

After wearing these new Chelsea Moreland boots for a day, I find them to be the most comfortable heel to walk in that I own.  The geometry of the shoe design is right on the mark.

_______________________________

Second addendum:

To go with a red leather jacked I just bought I've ordered a pair of these boots in red, and while they were on sale (with free shipping) I ordered a pair in gray.

I stopped by my favorite thrift store with no intention of buying anything and walked out with a pair of black knee high boots in a size 11 with a 3" stiletto heel and a black knit dress.

The ladies at the counter, who know me very well, still remarked that they didn't see how I could walk on those heels, and I insisted that these weren't really serious heels.

If you haven't guessed, I really like my new hat.

 

I was out and about earlier today with a trip to my chiropractor (just a tune up) and several trips to the court house.

I stopped in a local park for a picture.

They are very soft leather and fit me fine. I wear a size 11. Got a couple of nice looking boots when I wore them shopping at Macy's on Sunday.

I met my postman at his truck and he gave me a big box that contained two pair of boots!  Both pair were from shoeshow.com and were shipped for free.  They are both Chelsea Moreland "Gorgeous" OTK boots size 12 with a 4" block heel for about $30, one pair in gray and the other in red.  I'm going to have to really give some thought into how to wear the red pair as they are "attention getters".  I'll probably pair them with my new red leather short jacket.

Nice boots, TBG!

You might want to go back and edit your post to correct the URL of the web site. It should be shoeshow.com.

I bought 6 new pairs of shoes from them a couple of weeks ago (for a total of $73!) but the only ones I kept were a pair of Drexlite "Shelby" shooties with a 3" tapered heel (pictured below). The selection online was good and the fit was ok on all six, but on the five I returned, either I just didn't like them as much on me as in the online illustration, or they weren't comfortable. I took them back to a retail store about 15 miles away yesterday and got a refund on the five pair which I returned, with no questions asked and no return fee or postage charge. I browsed in the retail store for a while but saw hardly anything in large sizes (11 or 12), so I left empty-footed.

I've many times noted that contrast attracts attention... well red has the same effect.  :penitent:

I've worn my black, taupe, and gray versions of these boots out and about several times and I'm absolutely comfortable with the look.  I'm still trying to get comfortable with that much red. I haven't decided where (or even if) to wear this this out and about.

Addendum:  I decided to go red.

TBG, I like the red with the white, nice ensemble. I also have red boots but they are a much darker color of red and are riding boots with 2" big block heels. Don't be afraid to wear that ensemble out for a jaunt as JeffB puts it. I think you'll get positive attention!

Happy Heeling,

I was just in a Shoe Show store shopping today.  The one I visit usually has a very good selection of size 12, and also typically has wide widths available, which I can wear in a size 11.  However, the selection today was weak - not sure why.  Very few 12s or 11 wides.  Hopefully it is just because of the seasonal switch.  It is a great place to shop with really low prices on most shoes - and the staff is not the least bit bothered by a guy shopping for heels.  I wore my Clark's angle boots with 3" block heels today, and walked the entire mall in them.  I have to admit that my feet were hurting a bit by the time I got back to the car.  I did stop at a K-Mart and a Famous Footwear as well.  Nothing larger than 11 at K Mart, though I did try on a few that I liked and would have bought if they had fit better.

Well my newest pair of boots came in the post today.

I had found another pair of thicker, block heel boots that my wife really liked for me. They are Crown Vintage brand, style is called Pilot.

I managed to snag them off of DSW website. They were on sale for $49.94, then DSW had an additional 25% off that. In conjunction with a code I had, it made my total just over $30. I'd say not too bad of a deal!

Trying them on, I must say I like the fact they are a snug fit on my calf.

I know these aren't high heels, but I've wanted a narrow calf knee high riding boot for a long time now, just to wear either over tight pants, or under flares, and I found my BOOTS!!!

Thank you for the compliment on my new high heel cowboy boots. They are a super fit, fun to wear and easy to walk in.

Sorry I misspelled  Estres Modes.

WOW great looking boots.  Even on sale they are still out of my price range but I'm glad you got them and I hope you really enjoy them.  Are they as comfortable as they are good looking?
