…and strutting and jumping and sploshing in puddles and…well, you get the idea.
Every year, I buy a pair of boots and wear them to death, but this year, I just haven’t spotted anything that I love. Which is probably why my feet have been freezing in a pair of leather pumps in the snow (or my short wellies from Primark – I’m not quite that stupid). Each year, this quest for the perfect boots takes up more of my shopping time online than I care to admit, but this year, I just haven’t bothered. Perhaps I should have been looking at these ladies boots by Clarks instead. When I was younger, I begged for a pair of Magic Steps and if they did them in adult sizes, I’d be all over that – since they don’t (despite Sarah’s best efforts to starting a campaign), here are a few of my choices:
I love these leather biker style boots (1) which are £64.99 which look sturdy enough to kick through the left over slush. I have a pair of boots similar to these brogue style ones (2) (£49.99) with a heel, but I’m not wearing heels so much lately. Black suede probably isn’t the most practical of boot materials this time of year, but these “Kendra August” heels (3) (£64.99) and the “La Mary” wedges (4) (£51.99) are unlike most shoes in my collection – and isn’t that a good enough reason to buy them? Finally, I haven’t worn a pair of long boots in years, but these black leather ones (5) (£99.99) may be what I’ve been looking for.
