Who has bought some new BOOTS?

It most certainly is a mainstream retailer and quite affordable. It caters to tall women, not the fetish or cross dressing crowd and so the styles tend to be what women actually wear. 

Yes, Long Tall Sally is certainly a 'mainstream retailer' in the sense of selling fairly tame styles of footwear that ordinary women (with big feet and reasonable wealth) would willingly buy.   Nothing wrong with that but, as you imply, of limited interest to many here.   But not a mid-range high street 'mainstream retailer' offering the sort of boots that DProud2700 was clearly interested in acquiring, and to which my comments were directed.

Just ordered these from the Topshop website, down to £60 from £159, ordered them in a size 5, not sure from the description and pictures weather they’re pull on or zip up, hopefully the latter or may struggle otherwise, expected delivery date is 23rd March, as long as they fit, look out on my Costa thread for some visits in them, can’t wait for that, been wanting a pair in that style for quite a while now

Anticipation is killing me  :sad:

Anticipation is half the fun  :wink:

Either way, now you get a chance to break them in first.

There is no labeling on them whatsoever.  I think they were ordered by somebody off of Aliexpress.  They were listed as size 10 by the seller.  It was a risk but at $16 worth taking but they fit like a glove.

Well they’ve arrived, had a right struggle to get them on but I got there and they look fantastic, I’ll post some pictures when i can but I’m a little restricted at the moment as my son’s working from home, we’re pretty much on lockdown and of course no Costa to sit in, hopefully this won’t last too long

Sometimes those chance purchases turn out to be real winners, my Kurt Geiger were in that category and i've hardly taken them off. Whereever they came from your boots look fabulous.

Funny story, been looking for some flat (i know it flys in the face of commen sense) otk boots and while looking came across a pair of out-of-this-world Guiseppe Zanotti wedges. Long story short, ended up buying the wedges, not the boots :roll:. Still on the look out for the boots.

No idea when they'll arrive, or even if they will in this climate, but hopefully will be able to post real pics in the near future, fingers crossed.

It has been a while since I've posted some new addittions. Over the past year or two I mostly bought Dr. Martens with heels. Since they are very good quality and have high wearing comfort. I also love how they look. My most recent purchases (last week) was proof that sale banners work in webpages. ;) And since I'm pretty much stuck at home (like many of us due to corona) I have a bit more time looking at such things. ;) Zalando had sale so I ordered three pair of ankle boots for less that the price of a single pair of Docs. I'm really into ankle boots and they are very easy to wear outside as well. The two pair on the left are real leather, the right pair isn't.

Hi @Cl0setheels, great purchase you have made.

Nobody would ever notice, or care. They look so nice.

I’m a also a lot into rubber soles boots, that make them completely silent when walking and also very comfortable due to the small cushioning effect!

Thank you! Due to the platform the heel height isn't so much so they are very easy to walk in. I can manage on boots like this all day like they are sneakers. :)

I got a pair of Ballet Boots this morning! Comfortable to wear but walking in them will take a few months to practice.

Not sure about a few months, don’t think I’d ever get used to those, I’ll take my hat off to you if you manage walking them, they do look great though

5 and a half inch heels, 1 inch platform. Bit of a struggle past the ankle bone but once they're zipped up they're fine.95506167_167915511238839_5152302378132701184_n.thumb.jpg.15198667247e2f14086692fb73b9be14.jpg95914975_232954064711656_7282562953872670720_n.thumb.jpg.9df0ffaf7d46969f7878e9eaadb42efd.jpg

Nah, they're only decorative. I can unlock them any time but what's the point when I have them strapped on with a tear off velcro?

Is it just the angle of the photo, or are the heels on those boots too tall to be positioned vertically when the toes are touching the ground?

The latter. I would slice half an inch off the tip of the heel but I'm too scared to do so because I'm not confident to try it.
