Sadly, there's just not much out there that's new, that I like. (I already own all the basic styles...and then some...)

I only wear boots with mid-length or long skirts and when I need them for snow and ice. Is it just me or does it just not snow that much any more? I live in the the freaking upper midwest and maybe it's because I'm used to alot of snow but we get two or three big dollaps of it and that's it. Even with that, I just hate the boots over the pants look (I almost always wear pants) and won't do it so they never do me much practical good. I do love boot-shopping though but I have no idea why. Guess it's a habit from youth.

So I don't invest a lot in boots, though I want an inexpensive tall pair with a 2 inch or less heel. I will look at your all's selections. I honestly haven't thought that much about it yet cause like I said, I expect very little snow from what I've seen in the previous years, and next week it's supposed to be 90 degrees again.

I'm thinking about something like this, but it's a little more than I want to spend.

What a timely thread. I just came home from DSW with these. The heel is pretty high but I think I can manage.

I will still be wearing last years. My Steven Maddens. Here they are:



I also have a short flat pair that I love too. They are not Steven Maddens-I got them at Famous Footwear.

I'm so sad. I have 4 beautiful winter boots that now no longer fit because my calves are too fat

I'll just have to look at your boot porn.

I also have a pair like this-they are wicked comfortable but I hardly wear them. That is one downfall about working from home-I find it hard to find excuses to wear my dressier stuff.

I just got these:





For some reason, I hoped/expected them to be knee-high but they're only mid-calf, which is okay I guess. They were only $38 so I can't be picky.

I'm still wearing the same pair of boots I've had since 2004. I don't think they'll ever wear out. No pix. *yet*

These are my winter boots too! Well, very similar anyway. I got them last year on Ebay in black and brown for $25 each.

Jeep I was thinking about getting a brown pair too. I just can't decide if I'd rather have a leather pair instead. I'm terrible with decisions like that...silly, I know.

Dang it...found these and they so out of my price range. They look like the Soda ones PH posted but I adore the color of these. The Sodas are much more affordable though...hmmmm.
