I bought these at the end of the season last spring -- got a real deal on them. Can't wait to wear them! (White Mountain.)

I just bought these on the weekend:




They were pretty expensive but hey, I got them at the Naturalizer outlet.
I have the opposite problem as some of you. My calves are 13.5" at the widest part, with pants. Still looking for a pair of tall black leather boots with narrow calves in the $100 to $300 range, if anyone has recommendations. (Yes, that's a big range. I'm not rolling in cash and above $200 it starts to hurt, but I am willing to pay for quality. Where I live, we wear boots three-quarters of the year.)

Circumference is 13.50" and there is a buckle at the top to adjust. Ecco's generally run narrow, though it does vary from style to style. Oh, and these have Goretex too.

I got these in navy.

I have lots of heavy gardening to do this fall and these looked practical
hello.world.
Divegirl & Webjockey, I love those boots!!
It's raining again in DC so of course I'm thinking about rain boots. I just started working with Sperry and they have some really cute ones in their fall collection. I'm sure the Pelican rainboot would probably work for gardening too! Do you all usually go with a crazy pattern or black/brown when you get rain boots? I like these:
I want to buy one of these: help me pick!

I bought these already (on sale!) and I love them! Totally trendy.

Ok I know you said #2 are from last year, but I LOVE them! Please, please please tell me the designer, or where you purchased. I am not really into last year, this year...etc. I just like to look good and these boots are HOT!!

thanks

Not purchasing but these are my favorite this season:


They have an old-fashioned edginess that I would love to pair with some of my skirts.

Favorite from last year:


And because I find these interesting, below is how people envision wearing them. I would do an understated romantic white dress with them:





When I actually get new fall/winter boots, I'll have to do this thread right

They're Apepazza 'Genova' Boots. Good question though because it looks like they can still be found for sell other places. Here they are at womensshoes.com. Piperlime was selling them for $120, and they're $208 there.

This site hooks you up with some other retailers offering them. I'm sure there's even more retailers than that, and if you're of the mind to buy previously owned, I wouldn't be surprised if you could snag them on ebay or something.

eta: I just noticed that womensshoes.com represents them as made from "fine imported Italian leather." That isn't the case according to Piperlime (who's reputable) and others. So I wouldn't buy from them...sketchy way to do business. And they jack up the price at that.

I love my new boots.
ETA - these are really nicely put together for $33 (and free shipping from Urban Originals). The tops fold over for a different look, the buckles adjust, they are lined with a nice soft lining, good treads for winter. They also have a partial zipper on the inside, which I really don't understand but see on alot of boots. I guess it's to help pull down your jeans if they ride up, but why not just put in a full zipper?

I don't get why boots either have to be motorcycle or cowboy style this year. I want something more classic. It's a fine line. I like wearing boots with knee-length or longer skirts, but I want something that will make the overall look appear less art teacher-ish.
Jeep, love, love, LOVE those on you!!!

I have a question because I really want to buy some boots, but am I going to have to purchase new jeans too? The jeans I have and love are boot cut and no way are those going to tuck down into a taller boot, right?

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
Stolen.
I'm still shopping around... But I LOVE so many of these boots - especially Jeep's. I just don't know if i can do the high boots... I think I'm more of a mid-calf kind of girl. Also, I kind of prefer a more brownish-red leather, which has been surprisingly difficult to find. Unless I want full out cowboy boots. Which I don't.

As a total guano... Spring, I've told that "bananosecond" joke so many times, after seeing it in your signature. Unfortunately, no one else seemed to think it was as hilarious as I did.
