Who has bought some new BOOTS?

Recommended Posts

My recent purchase these  booties,  something less noteworthy  on this forum. 

Chelsea Rag & Bone Westin Boot more ankle length then actual boot.

Yes i know no substantial heel, (1.1/4 inches at best) feeling uneasy and depressed about the purchase. Only because  it has no distinct heel like the others shown below i wanted in same colour tan suede as i settled for the Westin boot instead.

Funny that these are woman booties yet could easily bought men's in similar style. Doubt i would get the pointed toe or heel metal shank with brand logo stamped. Guess it's style to make it more feminine, differentiate it from certain style male boots. Have similar style in female moto chelsea boot in black leather rarely or never wear it only because lack of high heel. 

 

 

 

 

 

in truth wanted to purchase these below instead. Makes me feel happier with some kind of heel.

Nice boots!  It’s funny how designers for urban booties incorporate elements from cowboy boots to make them look more feminine, of all things.  The snip toe and metal heel cap are classy style elements of cowboy boots that men wear.  The heel cap was originally designed to protect the boots from excessive wear of spurs sitting on the heel counter.  Just goes to show that if men lose appreciation for nice things, they will lose them as fashion options.

Further to mine above on 15 Dec, I see today that ASOS has discounted several of its items even further.   The Espresso wide-fit boots, for example (in real suede leather and of good quality) are only £15.00!   All sizes up to 10UK (Eu 44).   Well worth considering!

Has anyone already ordered some boots to "cowboybootsusa"? 

Seems the factory is in Mexico and all customizations are possible. 

Thanks

I get tempted to buy a pair too, but would rather have just black leather, instead of the patent leather

Yes, Miguel Jones.   I have a pair of boots from MJ, made to measure, well-fitting and of good quality.   However, a few other members who have bought from MJ have reported some sizing difficulties, so careful measurement and instruction is obviously recommended, although MJ does seem to go the extra mile to satisfy his customers.

My latest purchase from Payless, the "Waylan" ankle boots in taupe with four inch block heels (measured from the back) which I broke in on an outing to the King of Prussia Mall yesterday. Despite the height, the block heels were perfectly stable and easy to stand and walk in, and even though they didn't come in wide width, the boots were still comfortable.

Looks like I won't be having them until next year now. Not complaining cause of the new year season.

Nice boots JeffB . I enjoy having different color shoes. I know my almond (yellow-tan) booties stand out whenever I wear them for there very different color. Same with chestnut color heels.

Got my new Pleaser Xtreme 1020 boots recently. They're great to wear but hard on the stairs. 8 inches is an upgrade from 7. Blimey.

The rise is under 5 inches, it's not the relative heel height that's the problem but rather the clownish platforms.  Might as well be doing stairs on stilts.

I have a pair of Pleaser heels, about 6 1/2" heel, but a 3" platform. Actually my go to shoes for lounging around as they are so comfortable. If you study up on Pleaser heels you will find they stay at about a 3"-3 1/2" difference from the platform to heel, no matter what the heel height is. I have been tempted to buy a pair with 8" heels.

Just got these in.  Not sure if I like the look with women’s skinny jeans or men’s better.  What do you think?

@TKHeels I personally like cleaner lines where the boot meets the pants, so in this case I prefer the bottom picture with the jeans over the boots.  Those boot shafts are loose and don’t follow the shape of your calves, whereas the skinny jeans are the opposite and hug them tightly.  I think the combination makes it look like your legs are too skinny for the boot, despite having a prominently displayed zipper.

That’s what I thought. Agreed

I've posted these in my album too, but obviously HAVE to post them in this thread too ;-)

had some good quality time getting to know my new pairs of boots this week, as well as an OTK pair I bought last year but have hardly worn. I must say, the OTK (or even thigh high feel) is almost intoxicating!

Here first are the high heeled OTK boots, called KENDRA from Asos. I had them in my saved items for a good while, and then they went out of stock. they suddenly came back in a  size 9 UK during the sale a few weeks back, so that was the sign I needed from heaven, so I grabbed them - probably a single pair that was returned or something. Link: https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-kendra-point-over-the-knee-boots/prd/8213666?ctaRef=my orders

the other 2 photos are the flat (I guess 1" is pretty flat!) OTK boots I bought last year, also from Asos, called "KEEP UP":  https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-keep-up-flat-over-the-knee-boots/prd/8012318?ctaRef=my orders
