Finally did it…I bought a nice pair of boots! I know you are thinking, “wow……”, but this is a big deal for me. I never got into the whole boot trend a few years ago but last fall I was secretly hoping to find a pair whenever I went to DSW. When I created my 101 in 1001 list earlier this year, I knew I needed to make it a goal to find a pair of cold weather boots, specifically tall boots.
The problem with finding ones last year was that I was 30 pounds heavier and my calves were not fitting into anything I tried on. Well I was pleasantly surprised when I tried these on in DSW last weekend. I highly recommend grabbing a pair of these Bare Traps – Rynona style. I was able to buy ones that were not wide calf as they are very forgiving (there’s a stretchy piece of fabric in the back), but they do have the wide calve/wide width ones available, as well.
They’re not too expensive considering the price of other tall boots – plus it didn’t hurt I had a $10 off gift certificate. Love their rewards program!
Also, if you know me, I do NOT do heels. These have a slight heel to them, but they’re easy to stand on and so far, I’ve had no problems in walking in them. I haven’t worn them for a full day at work yet, but I feel like they’ll be pretty comfy. Bring on the cold fall weather, I’m ready!
