Re: Darn! I like these boots....

Nice but the boot itself is abssolutey evherwhere at all price points.  It's the metal to embelllishment that sets this one apart and that might very well be available in less expensive boots if you search online.

@Alice-QVC  Sadly I tried White Mountain in sandals this past Summer and I loved the style so , I purchased them in three colors.   The soles were worn out in a little over a month so I fear the quality isn't there in this brand.


I haven't purchased WM in several years and when I did, they were awesome.  Sad to hear the quality has gone downhill.

 

The WM boots posted in this thread are all man made materials.  Smiley Sad

Fly London has some boots with a metal design on the toe.  Not like the OP's post but......

Re: Darn! I like these boots....

JMHO....as I do not know your personal life.  If u r living without any struggles with bills at this time, scoop them now.  U will look back in years to come and wish u had done so as I see these as being part of "YOUR SIGNATURE LOOK IN JEANS ETC) for years to come.   They are like true military boots and will last a lifetime.    I know I had my Western boots handmade and would fall over if any friends knew what I paid but at that time I was working full time and could "treat myself".   I now have a pair of Western boots (actually 2 pairs as it is like tater chips...can't do just one LOL) that no one has ever seen on another person in our area.  Had these boots for years and they will be like knew when someone takes them after I am in no need of them.   YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE AND YES YOU MAKE GET SICK TO THE TUMMY WHEN IF U TAKE THE PLUNGE BUT IT WILL PASS.   NOTE.....only get them if U can survive without that $$$.   Beanie Weenies are not that bad tasting for a few meals.    BTW.....this is seriously the advice I would give my daughters.   I do agree that if U see something else cheaper get them but at times our hearts only steer us toward one item.   Good Luck

I looked them up and they are $850.00. I saw them on their website. Maybe ebay has them on their website. They have them on eBay for $340.00

Re: Darn! I like these boots....

They have them in a size 39 (9) on eBay for $340.00. They say they wore them once and they are still in the box. I don't know what size you wear.

 

The Lyndon shoes are $850 on Alexander Wang's website.

Yes those are hot! But the Naots, at $200, are beautiful too. I've been drooling for those!

 

I found these but they're not in store and I don't have good luck shopping shoes without trying on..

They're Nordstrom's BP but online only and the reviews are stellar ($99.00)

 

I had assumed Alice put up the Naots...here they are

For the record the White Mountains I purchased went right back! Really awful; no support, etc...Not surprised to hear @twocent had issues..


I have the NAOT, and I love them.  I bought them a few weeks ago--super cute.

The $100.00 less is at Neta-Porter.  I still like them a lot.  I hesitate to buying shoes or clothes on Ebay.  But I wear an 8. I'd pass if there was a size 8 on Ebay.  I only go to Ebay for books and music, etc.  I'l leary of buying high end merchandize on there.  One reason I like these boots is because they were made in Spain.  They really know how to make leather there.
