Is there supposed to be a picture with this? Just curious.

Went looking at the new boot selections at DSW to replace the 3 pairs I've basically destroyed over the last two years. Motorcycles and foul weather seem to take their toll on the highway. Was looking for a knee high boot, but ended up with the G BY Guess Sussex boot. The sole and heels have treads, and are rubber coated so the noise factor will be gone, and I shouldn't have a problem with the heel finish wearing off. Last pair had white plastic heels which are pretty obvious.

Hey Bcup, those very good looking, nice find!

Yes the weather has changed and it is time for boots again, yeah!

I recently purchased anew pair of boots from Fluevog called "Tinder" with a very comfy fit and a black heel, easy to walk in them

They have been getting a couple of newer shoes and boots for this fall again, some really nice styles.

Those are interesting ankle boots, might have actually considered them for myself, until I saw the price.  I just can't bring myself to spend $400+ on any pair of shoes  :)

I like those boots, what are they?

As 12cm mentioned, the brand is 'Barbara Bui', and pretty sure those particular boots are an older make (no longer made, you wouldn't be able to find them easily).

I have been looking for the perfect pair of boots for quite some time, and I still haven't found them. However, as winter is rapidly approaching, I didn't let that stop me. I wound up buying not one, but two pairs of boots on eBay. Both of them are going to work out in their own way.

The first pair pictured are Aldo. I don't know the model, but they are taller and way thinner than what I was expecting. The heel is a full 5 inches, and it is literally the size of a pencil. I do not yet know what they are like comfort-wise, because I didn't get 2 city blocks in them before I realized something was terribly wrong. The left heel was broken, and I didn't notice it until I lengthened my stride outside. My cobbler fixed them for $6.36, tax included. I shall report further once this rain stops.

The other pair I got while the first pair was at the cobbler. It's probably just in my nature to be impulsive about things like this, but I got to thinking that while the first pair was pretty cool, these little ankle boots looked a whole lot more practical. They are Guess brand (again, I have no idea what model), have a 4 1/2 inch heel, and are a dream to walk in. In fact, they felt so nice that I broke my rule about rigorously testing a new pair of shoes before I'll wear them in public. With these, I jumped in the car and went right to the grocery store to pick up a few things. Later, I went on a walk around the neighborhood. These booties are going to work out just fine. However, I did dick up one of the heels right away, stepping in a crack. I'm not really used to stilettos and being careful of things like that.

I like both pairs of boots but especially the first pair from Aldo. That's pretty deceptive of the seller on eBay not to say that the heel was broken, but I'm glad you managed to get them properly repaired. I thought you'd swapped the left and right ones until I realised that they zip on the outside. That first pair would look awesome with skinny jeans, while I think the second pair would work great with tailored trousers.

 

One of the places I regularly wear heels at has a stone floor with wide gaps filled with a soft grouting between the floor tiles. I damaged a couple of heels until I got used to it, but I've got the hang of it now and, with care, it doesn't happen any more. You're right, it's not the sort of thing that most men (or even many women these days) need to worry about. In a strange way it's kind of helped me refine how I walk in heels, to the extent that I'm much lighter on my feet wearing flats too.

 

Anyway, enjoy winter in your new boots.

One for Aldo, one for Guess! Thanks, guys. SleekHeels, it IS a little bit different to have the zips on the outside, but it doesn't bother me I guess (no pun intended).

After several emails, I'm convinced that the seller didn't know about the broken heel. He was a man, supposedly selling his wife's shoes (I think this is actually true), and he says he didn't know about it. Even *I* didn't discover it until I actually walked outside, and then that tiny bit of odd wear on the left top lift suddenly made perfect sense.

The seller was willing to give me a full refund or pay to have them repaired. Because of my work schedule (I basically have to be rained out to make it to the cobbler shop), and the fact that we're not talking about a great deal of money here, I finally just told the seller to not worry about it any more, he'd been real decent about the whole thing, and that I'd left him positive feedback.

Now I just wish it would stop raining so hard so I can know for sure how they walk!

How was it broken? Did your cobbler replace the entire heel? Seems inexpensive to me. Take some pics with them on.

Nice. In all my years of thrift shopping i've never seen great looking higher heels. I always just assumed they just wouldn't sell them.

Wow, I like those, they're have quite a bold and distinctive styling without looking like they're trying too hard. They'd look great with the motorbike in your avatar picture, will you be riding in them? Great find, enjoy :)

How was it broken? Did your cobbler replace the entire heel? Seems inexpensive to me. Take some pics with them on.

The entire heel was coming loose from the sole of the shoe. The cobbler said that there is a screw that holds the heel on, and it was stripped out. Now it is solid, even more so than the other "good" heel.

 

I am somewhat discouraged, because although they fit well and are quite comfortable to wear around the house, I find that out in the real world, they are a bit too steep for me at this time, due to lack of ankle flexibility. It's amazing how much of a difference half an inch heel height can make in wearability/walkability. So for the present time, I aspire to these boots, but I don't think I'll be taking them for a spin at the grocery store anytime soon.
