the study of brown leather knee-high boots

27 Oct


Sudini chocolate brown leather knee-boots with 3-inch stacked heel and almond-shaped toe*.  I have a hard time finding boots that fit my calves–my regular workout includes running up a lot of hills (not in heels, don’t worry) and my calves are, well, bulkier than average.  I can’t wear skinny jeans and I have a hard time finding boots–even in the extended sizes–to fit over my lower leg.  Shrug, I’m mostly over it.  I tried these on last year during the Nordstrom half-yearly sale with no hope that they would fit, I was both shocked and delighted when I could zip them and still feel my toes and they came home with me without any further debate. 

It snowed last night, not a ton where I live but enough to break out the boots and tights.  (This is also why I am taking pictures in the office instead of outside–there’s just not enough natural light to make anything show up properly.  I hope the uber-flattering flourescent lighting is passable once in a while.  It’s going to be a long winter.)

*An “almond-shaped toe” is neither pointy or round, but somewhere in between.  It’s classic and flattering for almost any leg type.

    I have given my calves the term “athletic calves.” I have the same issue (microfiber boots are great for this problem). Coincidentally, I am also wearing brown knee high boots with an almond shape toe and 3 1/2 inch stacked heel!!!

    You know that pair of Christian Louboutin shoes that is the little icon for your blog? I wore those for my wedding :) But they were the ones with bows on the back. I’ll have to post them for sure.
