I am absolutely sick of window shopping for new boots.
I bought these great boots (see below) the weekend after I started my job, but I pretty much wear them every day because they’re the only shoes I own that don’t hurt my ankle, but they already have holes in the soles.
DID I EVER MENTION I HAVE A BAD ANKLE?
This one time when I was younger I was being chased around the house and I fell on a pair of high heels, ironically enough, and sprained my ankle. The ankle was not treated properly at the ER, and I was a kid so, duh, I didn’t let it heal properly, and now I am 34.a-bunch and my ankle fucking HURTS if it’s not supported properly, and it in turns hurts my knee and my back if I am not careful. It took me a really long time to realize the correlation between the injuries, cuz I’m SMAHT, but I know how this is the truth of my physical condition, and ankle replacements are far from perfected.
So, dear readers, perhaps you can hELP mE oUT, because it is ALWAYS boot weather in NYC. I need boots that:
. Support my ankle
. Are comfortable for walking (NYC blocks) and STANDING (an hour+ on the train)
. Look fashionable
. Are NOT SLIPPERY ON THE SOLES! I need my traction!
. Are one solid color – black or DARK brown
. Fit under pants (they can be under the knee or ankle boots, but no hooker boots)
. Don’t have a very high heel, but have a bit of a heel (1-2″)
. Are less than $150 per pair
. Come in size 9
. Are not previously owned
. Are at an online store — a reputable online store
. Are not the boots pictured above
PS — Oh, look! A much better photo of my boot when it was NEW!
