Boot Recommendations?

Started 1355533922.393 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1355780789.63 by blue_weimaraner

Hi Ladies,

I'm in the market for a new pair of boots. But I'm really picky about the style. Does anything out there exist, besides Uggs and Fryes, that have that sort of "utility" look? Like, a little stronger, "tougher" boot, that would look good with jeans? I feel that I've looked everywhere. I really do like some Frye styles, and Ugg, even though I do not like the traditional, popular slip-on boot, has some nice styles. But they are still not perfect. I like plain, no frills, but really good quality construction. I also like a lower-boot, nothing too high. Like, just a little above the ankle.

Any brands out there that I should really be checking out that I'm missing? Any great resource? I'll consider any price range.

TIA{#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

Ecco has great boots. Other than thatI'd go to Zappos.com and look at their styles. Usually you can get a good feel for what's out there by the styles on their site.

I have 8 pair.......but you really need to try them on. I wouldn't take a chance on ordering over the net.

Clarks has a bunch of boots (all different styles) on sale on their website and free shipping and returns. Also check out JJill as they had different styles too and believe they were on sale.

Merrell Captiva Launch. Love the back view of these boots with the straps. I have them in black and I'd get them in cinnamon, but I have the Merrell strap boots in that color already. I bought them as Merrell Tetra Launch and the Tetra Strap, but they're now being sold under the "Captiva" line. I get tons of compliments with both pair, but I like the Launch because I don't see that style coming and going, if you know what I mean? -- Last edited on 12/16/2012

Can't go wrong with Zappos. They have every brand and a great return policy too.
