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!

I love Hunters, and even without the extra heel I have a red pair for work. Glad they gave you the boots, tough to argue with free.

Very simple and effective. I like how they look on me.

Please don't notice my shirt getting out on the second picture!

I am posting these at the request of @Thighbootguy. Sorry for the terrible picture. These knee high boots are Calvin Klein brand, with more wear on them than normal for stuff from Ebay, but the price was right. They fit perfectly in the foot, and are quite comfortable, but I wish the shafts were just a tad slimmer. My lady/shoe friend gushed a bit over them and said they are not too big around for me, but they are definitely on the loose side. Actually, they look fine with jeans, and I have worn them out several times, but with leggings they seem too big. They have a 4 3/4 inch heel with a small platform.

Looks good to me! Do you know what the style name is of them?

I am in full agreement with your lady/shoe friend. I think they look great!  Shaft sizing can be as elusive as the shoe sizing.  I have several pair that look awful with leggings but great with jeans, and several pair that I can only wear with leggings.

Welcome to the world of high heeled boots (and they will look good holding a cello :penitent:).

New yet not new boots.

Today I opened up a box I had forgotten about and was surprise what I found.

I got a pair of Madden Girl Krisis calf high boots in Cognac many years ago and it has become my go to boot (see below).  I liked them so much that I got them in black as well.

If you know women's fashion, shoes are designed for one season, once gone they rarely return.  So this spring I saw the last pair of these in size 10 on EBAY and got them. Inside the box was my third pair I ordered in the beginning of February, this pair was also in cognac.

My new made to measure Arollo Princess Long Overknees.  They fit like gloves, but if I were to order another pair, I would add 1 or 2 cm all around because I think the leather liner takes up space and reduces the effective measurements. I think I would also add 1 or 2 cm around the knees for movement slack

Getting in and out of these things was an adventure, possibly the least sexy fetish boot dressing scene ever :cheeky:  But they feel lovely on and sliding past each other.

Hi all

I've never owned a pair of patent leather boots before so I jumped at the chance to get these when the size was available. They are now on the way!

They are Nine West Kellan wide stretch boots & I'm really excited to get them. I'm not too sure what outfit as yet but I believe dark leggings / jeggings or riding pants should be ok. My recent heeling experiences (mainly walks in the early morning in quieter places) have led me to prefer block heels rather than stilettos.

Will post pictures when I receive them!

I have a pair of those, and they are quite nice and fit well, per usual from Nine West.

Every Fall it seems, Nine West comes up with one boot model that is my "must have" and I have to grab one in my size 12 quickly before they're gone.

It's like they know their customers or something.  :cheeky:

Great looking boots.  Be sure to treat them with care as patent leather is very unforgiving when it comes to scuff marks.

Looking forward to the pictures.
