Don't forget a set of cushioned insoles.  With that high a heel, they really make walking easier.

Great advice, thanks. Already popped some silicon gel insoles in, helps stop the 'burn' on the ball of my foot...ouch!

Yay... my Louboutin Bianca's did arrive today. Totally in awe by the boots :clap:, but the little red bag with the replacement tips is missing :-?...

I thought it might be nice not to just post a picture, but a video. This way, I also learned that those videos from bloggers that look so effortless require LOTS of effort in fact, just e.g. the lighting. I don't have any video lighting sources, so in order not to have a hard shadow, I dimmed the lights... which made my SLR not focus correctly anymore and the iPhone movie become a bit blurred. Anyway... I hope that the quality is still sufficient to get a glimpse of how nice the boots look like. Size (IT) 41.5.

 

gorgeous pair of boots! enjoy :)

G'day, James,

Yes, I've bought from 6pm.com quite a few times. I'm always pleased with their service. They're a reputable firm with good prices.

I just received a pair of knee high velour boots in a 12W.  The brand is "ID. Required" and the style is "Rocket".  The boots had a wide shaft but a pass through the sewing machine removed about 2" from the diameter.  These boots (being a wide) are very comfortable but they do make my foot look kind of big... but for $10 I'm happy.

Just bought my best ever pair of boots, knee high, red soles, zip up the back instead of the side and a really comfortable fit.

Whoever mentioned aliexpress on here is a hero (or villain!)

 

Will post photos if required

These are not new boots, considering they are on their third set of heel tips and about ready to be resoled, but they feel like new boots.  Being inspired by recently narrowing the shaft on a couple pair of wide shaft boots, I thought why not do that to my everyday thigh boots.  I took out about 2" of diameter from the shaft just above and down to the ankle.  The boots feel great and no longer crush down at my ankle when I'm walking.  If you have a pair of these (Pleaser 8899's) I recommend the alteration.  If you can't do it yourself, any cobbler can do it for you.

They look great and fit perfectly.  I always liked the Pleaser boot styling, but wish they would make a few models from actual leather.

Hi Aristoc - those boots are just awesome!  It must have been really cool wearing them in public.  I'm thinking or ordering some shoes from skyscrapers.  They say their shoes and boots fit small and recommend ordering a size bigger.  Did you find that to be true?

Thanks for sharing - would love to hear more of your experiences out & about in those boots!

Hi hpsabre,

Thank you.  Although Skyscraper do say on their site order a size bigger, personally I've found them fairly true to size. I do however prefer my heels, pumps especially, to be a snug fit to avoid that annoying gap developing at the back of the shoe. When new, they always feel too small but the leather uppers soon give a bit with use and then fit like a glove! I realise it's probably not so critical with boots so could easily go a half size bigger if concerned......Skyscraper now do half sizes in all their range even though not that obvious on the site.

As an example my foot length is 26 - 26.5 and find their size UK8 / EU41 is a nice snug fit (their UK9 is far too big on me). I do however, have on order some oxford shoes in UK8.5 from them, so will be interested to see how they fit - want to wear these with socks and skinny jeans over winter!

Hope that helps.

Hi yoyo,

Thank you. The boots are in black patent leather with a sort of small croc pattern pressed in.

I just received a pair of Lower East Side (Payless) black booties in a 12 (EU 45).  They are super comfy and for $8 easy on the wallet.

I'm not sure it was intended but they will cuff down for a very short booty.

Oh yeah, I'm loving those boots too!  Cowboy style with great heels and sharp toes!

These must have cost plenty but sure worth it.

They didn't have the little jesters caps with the tassels and bells on the ends, to go along with these shoes? ;-)

Just went shopping buying designer skinny jeans on sale  so i couldn't stop buying more. As i browsed around if that wasn't enough, i found some cute booties. They had one in my size 11 so it was meant to be, so i had to have them.

Born Anny ankle booties in grey. Not very high heel 2 1/2" but compared to my wishbone ankle booties at three inch heel they look the same. No clacking sound with these Born booties soft rubber sole.
