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 »
The bad news: my beloved brown Tara Jarmon riding boots, which I bought in Paris four years ago and wore into the ground, have been retired. The good news: this means I get to hunt for new boots to replace them! Click onward to see the brown boots in varying heights, heel heights, and styles that I found, some as low as $30 friggin’ bucks. I ain’t lying.
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 »
Oprah said Bootights will revolutionize your closet, and we can’t agree more. This special legwear eliminates the need to wear socks over your tights because the sock is built right in. But no one will see your socks when you wear ankle, mid-calf, knee-high, or over-the-knee boots. Bootights are available in a variety of colors and textures, so your style doesn’t have to suffer. We’re happy not to suffer squished toes for warmth this winter.
When I first met my boyfriend he was wearing pristine white Adidas sneakers. I punched him in the shoulder and said, “Hey, what’s up with your shoes?” He asked me what I meant. “I’ve never seen shoes that clean,” I said. “I don’t trust people with shoes that clean.” He pointed at a tiny smear of dirt near the toe and said, “They’re not that clean.” I don’t really remember how or why we ended up getting together after this, but I can tell you that those suspiciously clean sneakers were a real stumbling block (to be fair, my propensity for punching strangers probably didn’t help). You know what would have been a preferable footwear choice? Boots — the dirtier the better. Here are my top five reasons why … Keep reading »
