Goner Message Board / ???? / I really want these boots (let's start a shoes thread, girls):
Posted: Nov 13, 2007 10:24 pm
 
If there hasn't been one already...CL, these kinda remind me of your kick ass Harley boots. I really, really like the leather on these and the giant buckles. Man, couldn't do $250 bucks though...and i think these must've been specifically made for VS cos I can't find 'em anywhere else on the 'net (including Steve Madden site).

Posted: Nov 13, 2007 10:57 pm
 
ooh, those are cool! the heel is just a tad higher than the other ones....$100 difference though!

i was looking at these for my office holiday party.
Posted: Nov 13, 2007 11:00 pm
 
Oooh oohh!
I want these ones to replace the pair my friend's dog ate

And if anyone can find these in an 8.5 or 9, please tell me. I really want them.

I like these

for a bit of a glam-yet-natural look with jeans or a pencil skirt and tights. Make sure you click on the image to get the good detail. This shoe store RULES. Hard on the pocketbook though.

ahem. i'm pretty sure i DON'T have cankles. thanks.

anyway, some of those louboutin shoes on the neiman marcus site are hottt. i love the low heel satin slingbacks in red. i'd never in a million years ever drop 800 dollars on a pair of shoes though. i cringe spending more than 100. eek.

i've been a little bit partial to ballet flats lately. and i always like black riding boots just cuz. big big fan of them. and i am a big fan of cowboy boots too since i am a hillbilly and all. only in black though. :P

I am so pissed. I am terrified of ever wearing any heels ever again after the ankle-breaking episode. Even though I wasn't wearing any shoes when I did it... it is still too much to think about.

I am very jealous. My shoe decisions are going to be veeerrrry boring until I get confident on my feet again.

Fuck on a peep toe. I can't afford nice shoes AND pedicures! jeez!!

i don't know what it is with me and buckles lately, but these are awesome! The thing, for me though, is that whenever i go to put on heels to go out, I ALWAYS end up changing 'em because i'm so tall that i feel like a total asshole at shows and blocking people. Plus, by the weekend, i'm ready to get out of heels....

i dunno, are they? they have a definitive ankle though...so, it's 15% off if you join madden's mailing list and free shipping on anything over $75. I might have to get 'em for a holiday present to myself. They kick so much ass. Someone convince me!

they look kinda thick through the ankle area to me...but it could just be the weird angle of the heel.

just saying...

I love all of the boots you ladies have posted, but I would never fit into them. I don't have cankles, but I have big, round comic book superheroine (or R. Crumb's "Lenore") calves and I can never find boots that will zip up all the way. it is a bummer, and when my $30 thrift store harley boots die I am going to be sad.

THANK YOU!!!!!

Rumple, I notice guys footwear. If it is really cool, that is fantastic. If it is worn out and trashed, they better be cute and/or charming. If they are are, I don't care what they have on their dogs. Unless they smell.

Skank P, those Palomas are kick ass. Perfect heel.

I bought these recently; wore em with cuffed up jeans, french tee and a cotton scarf. Very euro student look. The F Troupe shoes are always super comfy and in neat fabrics.

I am drawn to these too, but they have something I don't like too; like that really predictably retro look. I can see some Rockabilly ho in these if they weren't that soft suede.

That is hot. I'm tallish too, 5'7"...and so tired of flats, will only buy heels for a while.

Yes Maam! Very important! Not a total dealbreaker...but close.

I have big, round comic book superheroine (or R. Crumb's "Lenore") calves

Word. That's why I spent $260 on those boots!! They fit and they rule!

I find that they are simply never as fantastic as women's shoes. BUT, when they have on bad shoes, I certainly do notice.

I've got the Dominators for racing and they are definitely the most comfortable and adjustable. My only gripe is not being able to replace the tread. Can you add spikes to the Dragon's?
Posted: Nov 15, 2007 4:36 pm | Edited by: guy
 
I've had some Diadoras for years, and while they're good, the Sidis are much better for actually walking in (rubber soles, not just the usual rigid plastic), plus they really fit a lot better, they keep your feet dry/warm, and you can replace soles, etc. And yes to the spikes.

I don't know much about Lakes, so save for some Sidis, is what I'd say. Or get these?
Posted: Nov 15, 2007 4:44 pm
 
Arman, the Sidis are really, really comfortable. The lorica is like a supple leather and the binding system is really nice as far as adjustability. You can loosen it while riding with little effort/danger. Totally worth the money. Even after they get immersed in mud and water, they keep your feet warm, well, sort of. The heel portions are a bit narrow walking around on concrete, but you wouldn't want to walk around on concrete that much in these unless you plan to replace the heel treads. They are really made for off road stuff, but the cleat is recessed and does walk well.

Franny I love those!!

Those olde style wedge shoes I do not get. I think just platforms in general don't make sense to me. Whats the point? It's like a flat but 4 inches taller, and not subtle like putting lifts in your shoes. I mean I think all those shoes are pretty cute, and if they didn't have a needless 3in" sole I might purchase the "Village."

I HAVE those!! Two pairs, my German Granny Go-aheads...I like to call 'em. Walked all over the country in 'em. I really only wear them with jeans...that way as long as your toes look good, people/dudes don't notice the shoes are slightly frumpy.

studio g sez

a recent visit to paris france has given me a new perspective on ladie's footwear that I had not before. Please, ladies/queens/fetishitists do not take this personally (and I'm sure no one on this forum would be guilty of lakadaisical fashion!) but America, New York in particular...

YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO WEAR BOOTS. PLEASE STOP TRYING. WEAR SOME ROLLERBLADES FOR A WHILE...SEE HOW THAT TREATS YOU.

This may be old news for those who have spent time across the pond but there's just something in French genes that commands you WEAR motherfucking boots. not the other way around.

may i say... (I'm talking to you NY)
uggs. sorry to mention...save for the upper east side I think this one's finally flatlined here.

rainboots. retarded. pretty much all of them. your feet are dry and you look like a tard. done

knee high boots. should FIT. it's THAT easy. I'm not a designer and even I know that oversized oversized boots make you look like a transient farmer with a temp job at the New School.


maybe it's just the region but 90% of female bootwearers in this area aren't wearing them correctly. Let's pull ourselves up from the bootstraps america. As for a little kick in the knickers to jumpstart your resizing/rethinking I've written a little limerick

The Dollar is down.

Totally! I wore the lace up one with the back strap with a dress to see a teen client who loved to check on me for fun. She went off on the granny stuff...as well she should have!

wearing my blundstones right now. i love these things. even though they aren't lined or insulated they are good winter boots since the soles are flexible and have a good tread that grips ice fairly well. they'd be awesome if they were lined.

thats a bit 'flashy' for daily wear at the funeral home...

when my mother was in town i took her to the botanical gardens. saw this dork anglo-phile with a tweed jacket, jaunty cap and knee high wellingtons slogging through the mud. it was adorable.

hey, i just saw that patricia field is going a line for Payless. yes, they look like tranny shoes, but thought you might want to see them.

anyone been to target to see the erin fetherston. ????

Sake, sushi...tempura? Tranny the Terrible shoes indeed. I hate that Featherston stuff...poofy unflattering baby doll party dresses made out of polyester shit...just like those plastic crap shoes...methinks this whole designer gone budget thing has gotten a bit out of hand. It's starting to look worse than the regular selection of mass produced tack.

She is ripping off Terry De Havilland. Surprise! Have not seen the Erin Fetherston and can't afford a thing anyway!

Wow yeah, I just looked it up...the Cannery...my dad built a Chart House in there in the 80's...I do believe that building is beautiful, but cursed. Laurel, I'd love to meet you...It'll be Mon or Tues Dec 10-11...if you're not working. I'll have my 3 year old in tow too...I wonder if they have kids clothes? Myspace me?

yes, they look like tranny shoes,

i have to agree with that. yuck.

rainboots. retarded. pretty much all of them. your feet are dry and you look like a tard. done

and i agree with this too. unless it's raining, keep the shits in your closet.

people/dudes don't notice the shoes are slightly frumpy.

i have to disagree with you. i don't give a fuck about shoes, but i care about clothes and what else i wear. i just don't really care about the shoes as much as i do the rest of the outfit. my problem is that feet kind of gross me out so i don't really care to look at them or what covers them.

i just found these last night for 60% off! Only ones left and happened to be my size! SCORE! Finally! My search is over! I bought a pair of cheapos at Kohl's only 3 months ago and the heels are already worn through exposing the plastic.

Good finds are so exciting.
Posted: Feb 20, 2008 11:32 am
 
I am wearing those exact boots presently.

my blundstones, after 8 years of service, have officially shit the bed as far as the sole is concerned. fuck.
Posted: Oct 16, 2009 6:19 pm
 
most $$$

$300...pre divorced, single-mom, self-employed status...may never get to do that again in my life, they better last!
Posted: Oct 16, 2009 11:29 pm
 
I've been pretty lucky buying my boots off-season or scoring some at Buffalo Exchange when I was in Portland. I guess $200 or thereabouts has been where I topped out. The last pair I bought--Frye harness boots--were about $150 on sale.
Posted: Oct 17, 2009 1:51 pm
 
I went with my wife to three different stores the other day, holding her stuff while she tried on boots. Man, the styles this year are really lacking. Everytime I see something cool, I pick it up and notice the other side is covered in totally ridiculous buckles. All the sudden it goes from looking pretty good to looking like bondage gear. If that's your thing I guess that's Ok but....
Posted: Oct 19, 2009 2:15 pm
 
$200 is my absolute limit. I would love to find a decent pair for less than that, but so far haven't. I wore my several pairs so much last winter that they are starting to need an upgrade, any suggestions? I already have high heeled boots, looking for some minimal to no heel ones.
Posted: Oct 19, 2009 2:35 pm

This makes sense because of Part 5 of 80's Fashion Redux going on; in the real 80's I was forever getting frustrated with shoes that would look good at the core, but then they'd have all kinds of silver pendants and beads attached, ruining them. My quote at the time was "There is no excuse for ugly shoes; they just need to stop while they are ahead."
Posted: Oct 19, 2009 9:12 pm
 
I saw plenty of 80's "Sunset Strip" style boots at Scion Fest...makes no sense, except to be amusing on a really wasted girl stumbling around with her mini skirt on sideways...just like in the 80's, I guess!

There ya go! The second things got all Contempo Casual, I immediately resisted most new items and went straight up 40's-70's vintage until about 1998. I don't care what anyone says, that period (1987-1995) was just so hideous. Sure, I went around looking like a Love Is a Battlefield ragamuffin with an Edie Sedgwick complex, but things could have been worse, much worse.

If you were wondering what to get me for Christmas, I'd be happy with any of these in a 12 E.

Scott, if you are by any means serious about looking like a Lansky 126 victim turning the Downtown Happy Hour crew on with those boots, if you are ever in Ravenden Arkansas (almost to Hardy on 63), there is a surplus boot store that has an array of Luchesse's...none quite that funny though!

uh....EXCUSE ME?

I seriously don't have any idea how you expect me to order Pepe Jr. to fetch me a mojito to rest on my new human drink stand (small child from newly purchased island off coast of Guam i can't pronounce because they all sound the same, thanks SITC movie ticket sales! tee-hee...) in those pathetic, sad, midwest, excuses for shoes you gooners have listed above.

I mean, I wouldn't order Pepe Jr. to answer the door for Zanzabar delivery while I wore those "things".....eeewwwww!

Lets pretend you weren't born in a barn and actually had class...(omg! what a stretch!)

When you want to get serious about shoes, text my publicist when you get a pair of these...

http://www.thebagforum.com/shoe-cover/6733-stuart-weitzman-le-vian-2-m illion-dollar-shoes.html

Oh, that's right....you can't. Because I bought them !

Thank you all for purchasing my fantastic fragrance in your attempt to smell like you were not born in a barn.
No, seriously...

I love all you gooners!
and remember, it's not a recession if it doesn't smell like one!



BUY MY PERFUME!
Posted: Oct 24, 2009 9:50 am
 
Tommy, I've got some of those.

saispas, you've got to be kidding. Those boots are fucking awesome! I've been to that boot outlet place over near Hardy. There are a few nice pieces in there, but nothing on this level.
Posted: Oct 24, 2009 11:54 am
 
Scott. Those scream "Memphis Flyer Style Sessions blog/S.O.B. Gastropub/Afterparty for the Grizz game". There has to be a better choice!!! Don't do it!
Posted: Oct 24, 2009 12:23 pm
 
Scott, I think they'd go great with your pink tutu, you stinky little devil. Do it!! Buy them now!!
