Quality Boots f/Ladies - Page 4

post #46 of 74
I'm sure it's the latter, there are probably trade-focused equestrian boots that are of lower markup and higher quality than fashion boots (not a difficult proposition) but I don't think they'd necessarily be cheaper... you add horses to anything and shit gets expensive. I think here or in Japan a proper riding horse costs more than a Ferrari....

If I were buying the lady some boots, I'd get something interesting at MMM (they almost always have a great looking tall boot), maybe the season's Ann D riding boots if the girl could pull them off (petite girls probably can't), or like Fuuma said, Balenciaga would be pretty hard to beat.

YES

Ralph Lauren is doing some pretty cool equestrian style boots at the moment. The quality looks quite decent by ladies footwear standards too. They are a bit over budget though - good ladies shoes are $$$.

Seriously, have you even seen the C&J women's boots in person? Or even on the internet? I dont even understand your comment. This started out as a pretty broad inquiry, and many people dont know that C&J makes boots for women, so I thought I would suggest them. I have seen them in person, and they are really nice. They are not just smaller sizes of the men's boots, but actually cut slimmer for women. When my wife saw my Conistons for the first time, she said "Wow, I wish they made boots like that for women." I told her "well, actually they do." Maybe they wouldn't suit your girl's style, but luckily different people are allowed to like diferent stuff.

"Women dont care about that kind of shit"?? Really? A significant portion of the Ralph Lauren aesthetic for both the men's and women's line is based on English hunting clothing, and matches perfectly with C&J. In fact, a lot of the nicest shoes and boots sold by RL are actually rebranded C&J. If you want your lady to wear boots with 3 inch stiletto heels, be my guest, but those boots aren't made for walkin, literally.

Ok so how about if a women doesn't care for one specific niche of footwear that is the equestrian look where do they look?

Women that dress in RL are creepy future Connebait IMHO. Some bitch wearing a pink cashmere v-neck to match her husband yellow one makes me want to be violently ill. I don't disagree that incorporating some elements of men's dressing or different boots can be cool but it's something women select carefully and on their own. On the other hand a pair of sexy Balenciaga is pretty much always appreciated. Some of the lower priced point suggestions like the Koolhaas are cool too.

H&M will have their Jimmy Choo Collab soon, you can probably pick up a pair for much less than 300.

I'm hoping the boston store gets them as i might camp out a bit to buy a couple and resell like crazy. The $150 shoes will sell for $500 easy in the first few days if you do a 2 day ebay auction or something. Probably more if you get the most popular model. I haven't even seem them but wouldn't mind out muscling some women and making some coin

Augusto -

Long-time admirer of your WAYWT shots.

A little while ago I got my wife some Zara boots - over the upper calf in length. We were both very impressed with the leather quality, didn't break the bank at all, made in spain of spanish leather. Thought it might be worth a look.

Wish I made enough money to buy some decent boots for my gf. She's still buying those disposable Korean boots that fall apart within a month.

Thanks for all the advice. I think I found a pretty good ebay deal, I just need to be sure on sizing.
