I need a pair of black boots, not necessarily motorcycle, but along those lines. Lace up is preferred and between the ankle and mid calf. I have the perfect pair in my head but I have yet to find them anywhere for a good price. I already have a pair of tan suede ones from about 4 years ago that I wear at least twice a week. The are so comfortable and go with most of my wardrobe, and I don’t mean to replace them with these new black boots, more like give them a friend!
You may remember the Franco Sarto incident when I bought a pair of shoes too small (for an amazing deal) and couldn’t wear them because they didn’t fit. It must have been magic at the store because I could barely get my foot in them when I brought them home and ended up selling them at Beacon’s Closet.
I have found two pairs at Free People which I think may fit the bill and live up to my standards. I don’t want them to look like everyones else’s boot, I need a twist, something quirky to make them my own.
First up we have the Ryder Zip Boot. I like the touch of red on the zipper, and my only concern is that they are a bit shorter than what I wanted. But maybe since I already have medium height boots these would be fine.
The second boot is the Ann Arbor Boot which is more like the classic motorcycle/hipster boot. I like their height better than the ones above I just worry that they look too messy. Kind of a strange word for a boot but that is the best description I can think of.
They are basically the same price and I seriously need a pair of them asap. They are a staple I should but somehow don’t have.
Thoughts? Preferences? Or if you have another suggestions that would be welcomed as well.
