Survivor of the Boots

I'm going out of town this weekend, so I'll still be posting, but I won't be able to post any shoes. So tonight, you get three pairs of boots! And one pair's gotsta go. Which one will it be?

First up:



My Naturalizer Ankle Boots. If I were Ryan Seacrest, I would be saying, "Naturalizers, you are SAFE." They are comfy, still in good condition, and fill a need in my closet.

Next up:



My brown Aerosole Boots. I do not love these boots. They are not super comfy (though they are not un-comfy either.) And I don't adore the color. There's something cowgirly about these boots? And I am not a cowgirl. But, they are brown tall boots, and can be worn with cute skirts. And they are in extremely good condition and aren't even a year old.

Lastly:



These are my Steve Maddens. I love these. And as you can tell, they have been well loved for they are getting pretty worn. My head says these need to go, but my heart says, just one more winter! Just one more winter!!

So, which one goes? Keep in mind, no boots will be getting replaced. While I've decided that I am allowed to buy used shoes, boots are a little too much of a luxury. And I'm a little lean on the pocketbook right now.

First pair. Outta there.

I don't know, I think the third pair. They're already a bit worn, but they look like someone else who really needs (or wants) boots could still wear them. The first pair are too cute to lose.

I think the third pair. Although all girls need a pair of tall black boots, those boots are looking a little too worn... But on the other hand, all girls need a pair of tall black boots.

Hmm. But you also need black ankle boots for pants. So those can't go.

But you also need a pair of tall brown boots for when you wear skirts that can't go with black.

I'm torn. Can't they all just stay?

See, this is how I ended up with like 30 pairs of 10 year old shoes. I can't get rid of them.

Truthfully, I wouldn't wear any of those. Too clunky and outdated. Yes, all girls do need a pair of tall black boots... But they shouldn't be Steve Madden, and the heels should be at least two inches, and about the diameter of a Sharpie.

amelia, I think you underestimate my propensity to fall down. :)

all shoes I purchase have to practice the basic litmus test of can I walk in them?

98% of shoes fail this test. or perhaps, I fail 98% of shoes.

point being, tall boots with sharpies as heels? never going to happen for me.
