So I *need* black boots. No really, I do. I bought a pair of slouchy black boots a few years ago from Ebay and they are trashed at this point - plus my doctor says not to wear flats and those puppies are flat as a pancake and offer no support.
For the last 1-2 years I have been looking for the perfect pair of black boots, but it's really hard! And the ones that I do like tend to be like $500 and homey don't play that.
After 2 solid years of nothing I am now willing to fork over a little more cash if I can find a truly perfect pair of black boots that will last a very long time. These are the boots I think I really want (picture in black):
I have been thinking about them since 2005. I saw something like these in a store while on a second date with someone who turned out to be a racist (didn't find out & run for the hills until date #4). I don't remember what movie we went to see, but I have never forgotten these boots.
I will have to have them custom ordered from Sven's and they will cost like $300. I have never spent that much on a shoe, but I have to imagine they will last a very long time and I have wanted them for 3 years.
My other option is:
These are backordered until 11/16/2008 and will be purchased from Urban Outfitters - cute stuff, but not known for top quality. They are $170 with tax - so still pretty darn expensive in my opinion.
And on a side note...not black, so I'm not allowed (must focus!), but these are adorable:
