Style 911: “I Need Wide-Calf Boots!”

Damn you all and your cute boots! Except — not really. I’m just jealous. I have wider calves and would love to find some smart and stylish brown boots made for gals like me–do you all have any suggestions? Comfort and adorable-ness are a must. Thanks and keep up the good work! – Betsy

It’s incredible that shoe makers regularly forget that boots need to fit regular people with regular calves. What are they thinking? Thankfully there are a ton of brands that do cater to wide calves — or at least offer their shoes in both narrow and wide sizes. After the jump, we’ve found four great pairs of wide calf brown boots for you!  Keep reading »

I’ve seen and worn some really ugly shoes in my lifetime, namely a pair of cheetah-print velour space boot-looking things. But I was 19 and am now blaming youth for that fashion blunder. Who or what will Miista blame for its hideous Mesh Toehold Boot? I’m not sure which offends me more, the toe strap or that these shoes are a poor representation of a hybrid shoe. In my opinion, the mesh is unnecessary and adds a cheesy quality to the “boot.” And let’s just be serious, this isn’t a boot! What’s even more shocking is that these shoes have received a rating of five stars from three reviewers. Maybe I’m the one who is crazy? Maybe on some fashion planet I have yet to visit the Miista Mesh Toehold Boot is hot?! What say you; do you like ‘em or not?

Winter is on its way, which means all of us ladies are at risk for mistaking leggings for pants. But there’s hope! Three shots of Uggcitrin, the only vaccine for the Uggs boot virus, can protect you from purchasing oversized elephant shoes forever. Unfortunately, it does not protect you from Uggs if you already own a pair.

What are you waiting for? Get your Uggcitrin vaccine today! (P.S. I don’t care if other people think they’re ugly — I still desperately want a pair of Uggs anyway.) [NYmag.com] Keep reading »

Frye Says Get Your Boots Tattooed

Yes, of course you can get your skin tattooed, and even your nails — but what about your boots? Thanks to Frye’s new flagship store in downtown New York, yes, even your boots can get their own particular graphic vision fulfilled. Frye boots, shoes and sandals are some of our favorite footwear — because they have such a classic shape and style, and their leather goods last forever. Since they’re such great investment pieces, it’s nice to know that Frye is now offering its customers opportunity to customize via boot tattoos and hot stamping (which is basically like branding them like a cow). In fact, if you bring in a pair of your Frye’s to their Soho location, you can get your boots hot stamped for free! How’s that for a boot-i-ful deal? [Frye] Keep reading »

If these Prada Mary Jane boots creep you out too much to wear, you could always throw fishnets and a lampshade over them a la “A Christmas Story.” Something tells me that will be the fate of all the pairs of these $1,500 boots. [Racked] Keep reading »
