Wedgie Hunting

Happy November! It is frigid...and boots are in full swing out in NYC. I have been contemplating the perfect boots...and I know the wedge boot is hot right now...but in general I've been in seach of the perfect wedge boot because it's the easiest heel to city-walk in. Not only does it have to be of a lower heel height, it still has to look good! Why is this so offense, but all those girls photographed in their sky high heels and boots are not the average city girl walking to work or dinner, or the impromptu walk when you can't find a cab.

So, here are my requirements....I would love the heel to be at most 2 3/4 inches with a good sized platform to look like it's a sky high heel without the discomfort, a rounded pointy toe so it's comfortable and chic, and I want a yummy rich leather that goes to the knee for a tall sexy boot, and maybe some bells and whistles like a chunky buckle like that of Chloe, or a rugged exposed zipper. Don't get me wrong flat riding boots are a great stand-by, but it is not a sexy a boot. And, not to mention, the boot in general needs to be comfortable...on my walk to work I was thinking about what type of insole I would put in the shoe so it's comfortable to walk at least a mile in...and then the Cole Haan/Nike collaboration came to mind...and lets be real, those boots are not hot. But, props to them for thinking of it all...I'm now toying with the idea of getting the perfect boot made...but then that starts all kinds more research. So, here are some of my fave wedge boots that I would like, but are just not perfect.

Pictured above is a Chloe paddington boot (pic from yoox) from a couple years back, the heel and toe are perfect, but the shaft is not that sexy. Close but not cutting it...Made an excursion to Brooklyn this weekend, and found this boot at DSW...this is only for reference, it's almost perfect but way too cheaply made, and the leather is faux. I want my boot to last me a long time.

Full shot of the DSW boot.

Dolce Vita Torino boot...too high of a heel, but a nice basic.

Rosegold boot, love the zipper, but again too high of a heel...and the leather shaft looks skimpy when pulled all the way up to the knee.

This is my faves...Pour la Victoire boot, still too high, but the shaft is hot hot hot.
The search goes on...xo, B
