Booting Up in January

Aren't we always looking for boots? When will the retail gods catch on and stock us up with new boots in January? Us gals don't stop shopping for boots in September, that's for sure. And we're so tired of those old boots we bought ages ago (August-October 2007).

I went with Erica to look for boots, and let me tell you, we weren't the only ones on 34th Street's Steve Madden trying on tall, mid-calf, and short booties. But we were all eyeing each others boxes, sizing them up. You know, like hey, I'll arm-wrestle you for that 9 1/2. Guys should really hang out at shoe stores more often.

Here's what Erica came up with:

Cute, grey, and buckled, what more do you want? They were the last pair in a size 10 for $149. But hurry down to Macy's and you may get lucky with some very fun Sam Edelman boots on sale (and check out his sequin flats for $89). For those of you with small feet, there's a fantastic off white, low-heeled Frye boot marked down. But none in Erica's size. Most other stores were depleted in size 10's also: Baker's, Aldo, Shoe Mania. I know, boots take up a lot of room and spring stock is arriving, but...we want more boots! Always, all the time, even in the summertime (well, maybe not in August).
