I love boots and I REALLY want a pair of knee high boots. I see them everywhere, in my Burning Man community and everyday in downtown San Francisco. But I am a funny girl, I actually get overwhelmed if I have on clothes that are too heavy or dense. So I am not sure knee high boots will even work for me or that I could wear them for an entire day.
You can wear boots year round in San Francisco because the average temperature is 64 degrees, thus they are a fashion basic. A couple of months ago I popped into my local Torrid store and they had boots that fit but they were huge in the ankle. I have fat calves, smallish ankles, bummer ;(.
So I kept looking, and then Jessica Kane posted a note about these British, wide calf boots. Let’s see, I want a low heel, knee high, small ankle, black, and their Duo Malmo seems to come pretty close, and has a squarish toe so that is a plus, but they are pricey at $220 US. They are gorgeous but the reviews indicate that they too may have wide ankles, but the bigger issue is that my husband and I have a deal at our house that I will not order boots by mail, because in the 20 years we have been together I have never been successful. I bet I have sent back 10 pairs of boots. And if I did have to return them I am sure it would be pricey, the site says…”Please note that the cost of returning goods to DUO is borne by you“.
So what do you think, should I give them a go, talk my husband into giving me a dispensation to order one more pair of boots by mail, or pass and just love the boots I have?…affinity
