Thank you all for the compliments! Yesterday was also a nice surprise in that a new pair of boots I ordered arrived when I wasn't expecting them until next week!

Here is the link to the post in the other forum about the new boots. TL:DR version is that I scored some Naturalizer leather boots that were normally $200 when they came out for only $30 plus tax/shipping! So I paid under $40 for a brand new pair of leather boots, and love them!

I must say that one thing I am excited for to hurry up and arrive is fall/winter. I realize that if I were over on the West Bay area, such as San Mateo, San Carlos, SF, etc., that the temps would be much cooler than they are now. However, over here on the Newark side, it is still getting to mid/upper 80s for the high, and I cannot for the life of me bring myself to wear my boots in that warm of a climate. I have much respect for those that do.

HOWEVER, I am excited to say that next weekend, we are taking a short family trip down to the Carmel, Big Sur, Monterey area, where temps are much more to my liking. I plan on taking at least the new pair of boots, with possibly one other pair. However, it is a short 2 night trip, so we will see how it goes.

Well we made it back from our short vacation down to Carmel.

I was hopeful that I would have seen more women in heels than I did, but that’s not to say that the ones I did see were not of good quality.

In the places where we did catch notice of a woman in heels, it was in places where affluence is commonplace. There was no doubt that many of the heels and booties that I saw came with price tags of $150+.

That’s quite alright to me, considering the area we were staying in.

Now for myself, before we left for the trip, I made the ultimate decision not to take my newest boots. It was more of a decision of comfort. That’s not to say the new boots aren’t comfortable, but I haven’t had a chance to wear them for an extended period of time to judge just how comfortable they’d be for a day out and about.

That being said, I took a pair of Converse wedges, and my Sorel wedges. We did a small amount of hiking on Saturday, which in hindsight, was no more difficult than walking on a running track. Little to no elevation change and paved paths made easy work for the hike. However, not knowing what it would have been like, we both opted for our actual hiking shoes.

Due to circumstances that comes with having a young kid, I did not get a chance to wear my Sorel wedges until this morning while we walked around the shops in Carmel before heading out.

Let me know what you think, but I quite like this look.

Have fun in Carmel??  I have been there in heels many times.  

You look good, but it is hard to tell that those shoes are heels at all....  

Have fun.....   sf

Stan,

Carmel was a wonderful getaway, and in the right circumstance, a place I could see us living!

With it being a holiday weekend, there were plenty of people bustling about.

The Sorel wedges that I wore went unnoticed I believe save for one woman who was walking her dog. But as I am happy to report, I received a smile and a ‘Good morning’ as she went on about her day.

ANTICIPATION:

I’ve always been excited to get new shoes/boots. When I purchase them in person, it is a wonderful feeling because I can wear them right then and there.

When I order a pair either from a store’s website or on Poshmark, there’s always those few days(3-5 usually) where I am anxious for the new purchase to arrive.

That being said, this most recent purchase has me being tested even further!

Neither my wife nor I have any rain boots. Admittedly, we don’t live in an area where rain is such that we really need some, but it’s fun to accessorize!

Now the typical brand that I would flock to in this case is Hunter. They seem to be globally known and carry a good reputation from what I’ve seen. With that comes a price. My wife and I decided we should look for a pair, but not seek to spend $100+ on them.

Searching Poshmark, either my wife or I came across a brand called Joules. They seem to be of similar quality, etc. to Hunter, but focus a lot on patterns/designs on their boots.

Many patterns had a floral theme, while others included animals such as dachsunds or seagulls.

The pattern we honed in on was a navy blue base with white stripes.

When it comes to sizing, they follow the same path that Hunter does, which is you usually want to get a size smaller than your normal size. Luckily, Poshmark had a size 6 for the wife, and she promptly received them yesterday, which she commented that they were a good fit, and she liked the pattern. The cost for them after shipping, etc. from Poshmark was $37.

That order was placed on Monday, the same day I ordered mine from a vendor on eBay. This is where the anticipation comes in. My wife received hers two days after the order. Mine aren’t scheduled to come in until a week from tomorrow!

As we tend to like matching from time to time, we of course got the same style!

Let me know what you all think.

 

-Jeff
