I haven’t worn heels for over 8 years. I think I would fall and bust my face up. I know people say get wedges they are better but honestly, I can’t do it. I need functional shoes for my life. Functional use to consist of just sneakers and ugg boots but this fall/winter I stepped it up just a little with some cute boots. As a big girl its hard to find boots that fit my wide feet and my wide legs. To find a boot that doesn’t cost a whole leg is hard to do but I think I found some great ones for decent prices. Welcome to the family fluffly and brown boo….yes I name my shoes. Don’t sit there and judge me…….
Brown Boo came from Torrid (my favorite place to shop BTW)
He is so cute! He comes in a nice high length and since I’m short it looks like it’s almost coming up to my thigh. It’s okay though because these beauties are so comfortable
I love that it’s not as flat as I normally wear boots but still flat enough for me to run from a bear or something because that’s the only reason I would be running. The back of it is nice and stretchy and I love the buckles on them. I swear these are my new favorite boots. I can also wear fluffy socks with them which is a bonus for me.
Next up we have fluffly
Fluffly is soft and versatile. I got this color because it’s an odd color yet it matches a lot of my things in my closet. You ever got something other than brown or black and then realize it works perfectly with your wardrobe….maybe it’s just me. It’s soft yet has a rough tone to it…matches my personality. I got this boot from Torrid also. They no longer have these but I paid about 50 bucks for them.
Since I have wide feet it’s hard for me to shop at just any old place. I have to be very particular where I shop at because not all shoes fit me comfortably. Here are some places that are pretty decent for my feet
Torrid of course
I only shop for boots off season or when they are on sale. I didn’t pay over 70 bucks for either of my shoes. Nine West is pretty decent also when it comes to wide feet but they can get pretty expensive and are out of my budget for now but make sure you check them out. Here are some tips to use when shopping for boots
- Measure your calf at it’s widest point. Measure both calfs if there is a difference go up an inch
- Where jeans or something similar that you will be wearing with your boots when you go shopping so you can know how it feels in the boot
- Invest in quality boots. I don’t buy cheap boots that fall apart. All of my boots I have had for years and they still look brand new
However you shop for boots make sure you try them on. I am all for online shopping but for shoes….I tend to make sure I try them on first or if I know the store like I do torrid I know what fits and what doesn’t. I don’t have to shop in the store because I have enough of their boots to know what works and what doesn’t.
Where do you buy your boots? Whats your favorite boots beside the ugg boots?
