Oh! Finy, I'd a pair of 'Kooreelah' Cuban-heeled riding-boots that lasted 28 years!
They'd put up with all sorts of 'wear', especially getting wet! The side elastic wore out, so couldn't wear them, but the rest of the boot was ok! Lol!
I think I would like a pair, but worry that they will take too long to break in. I have a lot of trouble with shoes hurting my feet.
I have another soft pair of leather boots that I have worn for about ten years. I take them to the boot repairer almost every year and have them resoled or given whatever attention they need. The boot repairer does a great job and doesn't charge much.
I have never owned a pair of these,but I do like the look of them,especially the limited edition ones in REALLY bright colours which were available a few years back! My son's girlfriend and her crowd of friends all had them in different bright colours and they always looked such fun! I have major issues with my bones and joints so I cannot wear these at all,more's the pity.I LOVE flat shoes and I think it is marvellous that there is something really sensible yet stylish for women of ALL ages to wear and still feel up to date!
Yes indeed!! How can anyone have fun if their shoes cause their feet to hurt?!
I have eclectic taste in most things.So as well as appreciating the comfort and longevity aspects which these shoes are usually bought and worn for, I also love 'pretty' shoes which are extremely feminine! Alas,most of these as well, are not suitable for me,so I stick with my divinely comfy Orthaheels in fabulous FUN colours!!
I have a very old pair that I wore every day in winter for about twelve years, but they are pretty much past it now. I loved them because they were practical and durable and appropriate to many situations and I liked the look of them. I have some new ones but haven't succeeded in breaking them in yet, as the design seems to have changed a bit since I bought my first pair.
I bought a pair of Doc Marten shoes (long time ago when they were in fashion), they were exceptional quality.
The boots look great, if I could wear boots I would have bought a pair (I have a high instep and struggle to wear boots comfortably).
