These boots were made for walking, men, manual labor. More specially, pioneers engaging in log-cabin improvement projects and/or brick laying and axe-swinging. Just fashion some scrap metal over the toe to create “steel toes” for the latter. To complete the outfit, you could wear them with a silk dress and hiking socks for a night on the town. You know, for post coon-skinnin celebrations with the libations.
Actually, scratch that, this boots are horrible. Horrendous. They make me wanna throw up a little bit.
Be like a penguin and keep your feet happy. The Langford platform high-heel oxfords will have you tap dancing in delight. These retro-chic renditions channel daddy’s Allen Edmonds, but with 3.75 inches of feminity. Like the camden leather brogues that are a toned-down bowling chic treat, but taller! They look ravishing with cropped skinnys.
The metropolitian shoe boot. The go-to shoe for fall. I must have! Yes, I MUST have them. (in every color!) But these black beauties are mah fahhvorite. I can picture them now with opaque black tights, a colorful A-line skirt and fabulous coat….they already make up my favorite outfit I have yet to own!
One more to get you pumped for fall…the brown perfect pump. Work it girl. Or, if they are not your style and do not match your job do go for the pioneer lace-ups and you’ll make a great pioneer village reenactor or cement-mixer lady.
Or, if you aren’t smitten with these, why don’t you go for the Arrest Me Red version, especially if you aren’t a cop or robber!
Ahhh you’re still lusting after a pair of tall boots are ya? Well here are the winners. Yes, I searched high and low for the perfect pair of fall riding boots (my absolute hands-down favorite boot sytle for fall) and found them here. The Audrey boot in whiskey. Look at that gorgeous hardware! I’m chomping at the bit for these.
Wisegeek.com shares, “The expression chomping at the bit can be traced back to the equestrian world. In the world of horses, a bit is a small metal rod attached to a harness or bridle. This metal bit fits inside a natural space within the horse’s mouth. The bit serves several purposes, from discouraging the horse from eating wild grasses to guiding his or her head while connected to the reins. A horse will instinctively chew and bite at the metallic bit as long as it remains inside his or her mouth. The words champ or chomp both refer to the distinctive sound of a horse chewing and biting on the bit.”
Thank you, Wise Geek, you are both wise and geeky indeed. But, fear not, I have no intention to chew or bite on this gawgous hardware. I’ll just admire it and maybe polish it every now and again because I take better care of my boots than my car.
