Winter Boots: Want!

Ooooo, these. But they're a hundred and a half! Found cuter (but less practical) ones...for like 5X that; for that price, the shoemaker had better come to my house, measure my feet, and build a set of custom lasts.

I usually wear either trainers or closed-toe outdoorsy sandals, and motorcycle boots for bad weather. But this year, I'm much tempted.

Tip Jar?

Or, on a more direct path, what size and color tempts you most?

What jetfxr69 said. Tip Jar?

It's pretty close to a combat boot pattern. Just one thing though, with a zipper they don't tend to be water proof.

I wonder about the toughness. I note from their Zappos page that Kelsi Dagger tends towards the stylish more than the functional.

But they look pretty good.

Just the thing for hiking through the frozen tundra. Or Broad Ripple, whichever comes first.

9.5, and I like the black ones.

These are *not* work boots, guys. I have a good pair of Milwaukee motorcycle boots plus my good ol' knee-high Carolina Pole climbers -- which, despite being lace-up, are pretty waterproof as long as I renew the Sno-Seal yearly.

I think Santa would be very smart to purchase those for your lovely self. Then again, I might not be able to wait for Christmas for Santa to bequeath them upon me-- I say buy them for yourself. And against the backdrop of the boots that are 5X the price? CHEAP by comparison!

Doesn't the fur trimming get wet and dirty?

FWIW, I showed those boots to Sally, and she said, "ooh!" :)

Of course you must understand that Sally was also going "ooh!" over some of the clothes from this site.

As well she might!
