For the past few months, I’ve been really wanting a very specific pair of shoes. I told myself that if I was going to wear leopard print footwear, it would have to be in a chunky ankle boot – I liked the idea of pairing the sassy print with a less-sexy silhouette. Unfortunately, leopard print chunky ankle boots aren’t as easy to find as one would think, and the only ones that matched my specifications were one pair from Topshop, and I was hesitant to spend almost $200 on yet another pair of shoes that might be near-impossible to walk in. (I’m pretty comfortable in high heels, but 6″ is nearing achilles-tendon-crushing territory.)
Luckily, while my mom was visiting this weekend, she suggested we check out DSW, and I discovered these!
Diba Sumner Leopard Bootie from DSW — only $49.95!
I didn’t feel like asking Brad to take pictures of my feet, so instead, I posed my new shoes in their natural habitat – with fellow cats.
They’re not particularly comfortable. Sadly, I’ve come to expect that from high-heeled boots that cost under $100. Hate to sound like a snob, but it’s true. While the heel is nice and sturdy, there’s no cushioning whatsoever under the ball of my foot. Some insoles will help to remedy that issue, though.
Josie approves, I think.
